Summer is the time for weddings and I think crochet goes perfectly with all aspects of the wedding. I’ll be doing a variety of roundups in the coming weeks to show what I mean but I thought I should start with the centerpiece of any wedding: the bride’s wedding dress.
Here are twelve crochet wedding dresses to show you what I mean:
I especially love this crochet wedding dress sold on Etsy by LecrochetArt. And I adore the matching crochet umbrella!
Etsy’s LaCostureraShop is selling this one of a kind crochet wedding gown.
Check out this beautiful crochet wedding dress pattern that uses the crocodile stitch; it’s from BonitaPatterns on Etsy.
The Yolanda is a wedding dress by Claire Pettibone. It is ivory crochet lace over platinum silk charmeuse. I love the back detail.
Pat White took this photo of a beautiful crocheted wedding dress that was on display at her local state fair.
Check out crochetkiva on Flickr to see a whole photo shoot featuring this crochet wedding dress.
Unforgettable Vintage Wedding Gowns found this great 1960’s crochet wedding dress.
Irish Crochet Wedding Dress via Anthropology and Craft. Lace is a hallmark of many wedding dresses and Irish crochet lace is a great idea for creating a charmingly beautiful vintage-inspired romantic wedding dress.
Instead of classic, you could go with a truly unique, fantasy-inspired wedding dress like this one from Etsy’s TranscendentBird which includes layers of freeform crochet and upcycled linen.
Some people really like short crochet wedding dresses and I think that this one from Etsy’s Lopushka would be an excellent choice!
I already showed you this great wedding dress in my roundup of upcycled doily ideas but it’s worth sharing again!
Do you think that a crochet wedding dress is a good idea? Why or why not?
