Which is the best lace in world?

Hey everyone, I'm planning a wedding and I'm on the hunt for the most exquisite lace in the world to use in my dress. I want to make sure that I choose the very best, high-quality lace that will make my dress look stunning on my big day.

I've been doing some research, but there are so many different types of lace out there, it's hard to know which one is truly the best. Some seem to be known for their intricate details, while others are celebrated for their elegant simplicity.

So, I wanted to reach out to this community and ask: in your opinion, which is the best lace in the world? What makes it so special? Any suggestions or recommendations would be appreciated! Thank you in advance.

Hello there, congratulations on your upcoming wedding! I agree with the other comments that choosing the best type of lace for your wedding dress depends on personal preferences and the overall wedding theme.

That being said, one of my personal favorites is Guipure lace. This lace is known for its corded patterns and is made with thick threads, which gives it a more structured and three-dimensional look. The texture is also slightly rougher than other types of lace, which adds a unique quality to it.

Guipure lace is beautiful not only on wedding gowns, but can also be used as an accent on veils, sleeves, and other parts of the dress. It's also available in many different colors, so you can choose one that best complements your skin tone or wedding color scheme.

Ultimately, the choice of lace will depend on your personal style and preference. Be sure to do your research and try on different types of lace swatches before making a final decision. Wishing you the best of luck in finding the perfect wedding dress!


I'm not sure if it's possible to declare one specific type of lace as the "best" in the world as it's such a subjective matter. However, I recently attended a wedding where the bride was wearing Alençon lace and it looked absolutely stunning on her.

What I particularly liked about Alençon lace is its intricate designs of flowers, leaves, and swirls. It has a slightly heavier weight compared to other laces making it easier to work with during tailoring. The texture is exceptionally smooth and has the right amount of stiffness or body to keep its shape well.

Although, I truly believe the choice of lace should be personal and based on personal preferences, budget, and the vision of one's dress. All the different types of lace have their own unique qualities and beauty, it just comes down to selecting one that resonates with you the most!


Hi there! I recently got married and spent a lot of time researching the best lace to use in my dress as well. After much searching, I ended up using Chantilly lace, a delicate lace made in France.

I absolutely loved the intricate floral patterns and the delicate texture of Chantilly lace. It has a beautiful drape and looked stunning in my dress. It's also very lightweight and comfortable to wear, which was important to me since I had a long day ahead of me!

Overall, I highly recommend Chantilly lace for anyone who wants a soft, romantic look for their wedding dress. However, different laces may suit different preferences so make sure to do research and try samples before deciding on the perfect lace.


Firstly, Congratulations on your engagement! Lace is definitely a great choice to add some extra elegance and femininity to any wedding attire. In my experience, I found the Venetian lace to be one of the best types of lace for wedding gowns.

What I love about Venetian lace is the intricate design and the high quality of the thread used in its weaving. The lace is typically heavier in weight and has a stiffer, more structured feel which gives it a regal look. I also appreciate the fact that Venetian lace is versatile and can be incorporated into a number of styles from romantic to vintage.

However, I would suggest considering the location and season of the wedding before finalizing any choice of lace. Heavier lace like Venetian may not be suitable for a beach wedding or an outdoor wedding in summer while much lighter lace like Chantilly may not hold up well in a winter wedding. Consider the weather and temperature of the wedding venue while making the final choice.
