From lace cutouts in trains to incorporating second layers of lace on your gown, lace is everything to us at Anomalie. That’s why we’re huge fans of adding 3D lace to turn up the texture on any wedding dress. From soft petal-like pieces to full flowers, a 3D appliqué is romantic, ethereal, and completely in-step for any floral-obsessed bride. Here are 4 ways to embellish your dream wedding gown with 3D lace:

This ultra-pretty trend can be paired with flat vines of a soft lace to create a cohesive lace look. A dress with 3D floral lace backed by a flat floral pattern is foolproof for a garden wedding (or any type of wedding)!

Use 3D lace to emphasize the starting point of a flare on a fit-and-flare style gown or to define a waistline. With your Anomalie stylist, you’ll be able to perfect the placement of the 3D appliqués for the most flattering fit.

For a rich, layered look that really adds texture, couple 3D floral appliqués with a second layer of sequin tulle or sheet lace. This second later creates contrast with the top layer of 3D lace, providing depth and detail to a variety of gown styles.
