No other wedding-day detail evokes a southern charm vibe quite like vintage lace. In this style story, we pulled together a beautifully coordinated look all inspired by a laser-cut lace wedding invitation.

The Invitation
As pretty as doily, the Sweet Scallops laser cut invitation is perfect for that shabby chic look you’ve been searching for. This sweet, lace-themed invitation look will leave your guests with a taste of what’s in store on your wedding day.

Everything Lace
Make your day dreamy by incorporating lace into nearly every detail! Of course, a lace wedding dress is a must. Choosing a fitted silhouette with crocheted lace suits this look best and brings a bit of boho-flair to an otherwise traditional look. Dress your bridesmaids in lace as well! Bridesmaids in creamy lace would be a beautiful choice but if you want color, choose a neutral such as taupe or spun gold.  Next, layer lace doilies on your reception tables to create  runners. You can even string lace doilies with invisible thread to create a ceremony backdrop. Pro tip: you can gather these from thrift stores for a price your wedding budget will thank you for! And finally, complete your look by wrapping cupcakes in lace liners.

The Location
We’re dreaming of…an outdoor ceremony! Having your ceremony – and even reception –  outside will magically create an atmosphere that’s relaxed and adds a whole lot of charm to your entire day.  Choose a wedding venue that lets nature play a role in your day. Options might include a converted barn, outdoor winery or brewery or a public garden. If you’re not finding exactly what you want, get creative and explore the option of holding your wedding at a private residence. Local wedding planners will have the inside scoop on the best way to find the outdoor venue of your dreams!
