For the real life mermaids and brides who think outside of the box. The Grace Loves Lace Avril wedding dress is for the indefinable bride: the woman with innate style, who knows fashion but doesn’t follow it. We envisage a siren from the sea in this unique two piece, a modern woman seeking to bring glamour, class, and originality to her wedding.

The soft bustier features Chantilly design lace with gold thread and built in shaped cups, corded embroidery, and eyelash lace scalloped hem. The sheer décolletage and stretch-lace back makes for an easy fit, with stunning silk chiffon fly-aways coming from the shoulder that can be gathered at the back or left to trail as you move. The matching gathered lace skirt with elasticised waist line is fully lined and falls effortlessly over the hips. We adore our Avril set and imagine a true individual wearing it who wishes to WOW on her big day!

We envision our Avril worn with a loose wavy up do’, glossy skin and bronzed makeup with our Gabriela veil floating in the wind and bare feet.
