Deciding who should be in your wedding party isn’t always the easiest decision. Do not fear — WeddingWire’s editorial team is here with their top tips, including picking your nearest and dearest family and friends, making sure the size is proportional to the number of guests attending, but doesn’t have to be even, mixing it up is okay (meaning the groom’s side can have girls and the bride’s side can have boys), and remembering that you don’t have to have a maid of honor, best man, flower girl or ring bearer.

Lace, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways! Lace is a classic and feminine fabric for wedding dresses, of course, but it’s also extremely versatile. Many of Allure Bridals‘ gowns feature lace used in unique and gorgeous ways – and whether you’re a super-romantic bride, a glamour girl, a modern sophisticate or a total romantic, there’s an Allure lace gown for you. Check out a few of our favorite lace wedding dresses from Allure Bridals.

Romantic: Head-to-toe lace with classic sleeves is pure wedding romance. We love the slim silhouette and the illusion neckline – so Kate Middleton, and perfect for a springtime garden wedding.

Modern: This gown combines on-trend details (hello, peplum!) with a totally flattering style. The beaded belt highlights the narrowest part of the natural waist, and the v-neckline is so slimming.

Glam: Va-va-voom! The sweetheart neckline and fit-to-flare silhouette are totally sexy, but the stunning lace fabrication keeps things ultra-feminine, too.

Vintage: This slinky style has an Old Hollywood vibe that’s ideal for a Great Gatsby-inspired wedding that’s so hot right now.

And don’t forget your bridesmaids! One of the biggest trends from last season’s bridal market is lace bridesmaid dresses. And no matter what your wedding style is, you’ll find a lace bridesmaid look from Allure Bridesmaids that works perfectly.

Elegant: Hosting a formal wedding? Your ‘maids will look black-tie ready with this gown, which combines a classic illusion neckline with a modern peplum detail.

Versatile: If you’re looking for a dress that would look great on a variety of figures, this v-neck, knee-length style is both stylish and flattering.

Retro: We love the A-line skirt on this dress for a little 1950s flair! Plus, the illusion neckline and cap sleeves provide a little extra coverage.

Sophisticated: This dress is so chic – your bridesmaids will totally want to wear it after the wedding to a cocktail party or out on the town!
