The "Tattoo" Lace Wedding Dress Trend: 5 Beautiful Lace Illusion Mermaid Wedding Dresses by Pronovias Barcelona Bridal

The "Tattoo" Lace Wedding Dress Trend: 5 Beautiful Lace Illusion Mermaid Wedding Dresses by Pronovias Barcelona Bridal

No, it's not ink- these couture wedding dresses have appliqued lace on a barely-there mesh panel that blends in seamlessly with your skin. This gives that stunning illusion that the delicate white lace is freely flowing on to the skin, untethered. Where does the wedding dress stop and the skin begin? That's the magic of these gorgeously feminine illusion lace wedding gowns.  

Lace wedding dresses are typically viewed as a more traditional bridal style, however with the slight twist of a mesh illusion paired with lace, a more contemporary feel is granted to the wedding gown for a bride who wants to merge tradition with modernity. 

This selection of lace illusion wedding gowns are especially gorgeous as they demonstrate the various ways your wedding gown can have that coveted "tattoo" lace illusion, whether it is in an illusion sweetheart neckline, an illusion plunging low back, side cut outs or beautiful invisible long sleeve lace wedding dresses. 

1/ Hati Mermaid Illusion Lace Wedding Dress by Pronovias 

Hati Mermaid Illusion Lace Wedding Dress by Pronovias Barcelona Bridal

This contemporary lace wedding dress by Pronovias is enriched with a leafy lace applique throughout the mermaid silhouette. The defining feature of this wedding gown is the stunning open back illusion. Tendrils of lace playfully smatter the backline, flowing towards the front neckline in a scattered V-neck pattern. Adding to the skin illusion is the beige underlay, showing through to give a nude effect that really highlights the lace pattern. The cherry on top is the beautiful line of ivory buttons that trickles down the centre back, as if they've been painted directly on to your skin.  

This open back lace illusion ends just at the waistline, creating a gorgeous shape from the back of the wedding gown which adds to the stunning mermaid silhouette. One of the best parts of this wedding dress is the beautiful train that really shows off the spectacular lace detailing that features all over the wedding dress. The edges of this bridal train are rimmed with a curved lace, just adding to the beautiful structure of this mermaid style wedding dress. The Hati lace wedding dress is so impossibly soft, feminine and elegant. Once you wear it, you'll never want to take it off.   

2/ Morocco Illusion Lace Wedding Dress by Pronovias

If you're a fan of a low back, you'll LOVE Morocco! This simple lace styled wedding gown has the beautiful mesh lace illusion through the waist, giving it that sexy side-cut out look. This continues all the way down to the top of the hips, providing an exotic fully open back. Together with the mermaid silhouette, the side cut-out lace illusion helps to accentuate more of an hourglass shape to bring out all your curves... especially with the way the end of the mesh swoops and dips to really highlight the booty!

All of the sumptuous lace culminates in the curved train, adding another beautiful component to this wedding gown. It's trimmed with another lace detail, which is perfect for the bride to sweep down the aisle, giving her guests yet another feature to gaze at in amazement. 

The ivory/ivory option of this wedding dress provides a stunning bridal look to keep it classy even when showing off your body, while the ivory/nude options provide a contrasting background to really showcase the bridal lace designs. 

3/ Andrews Long Sleeve Boho Lace Wedding Dress by Pronovias

Andrews Long Sleeve Boho Lace Wedding Dress by Pronovias

The lace and long sleeves combo in Andrews wedding dress by Pronovias enriches the dress with a nod to a more traditional bridal style, yet the arrangement of the lace appliques itself offer a very boho wedding dress vibe. Definitely for the free-spirited and down-to-earth bride, the scalloped hem, floating lace floral appliques and the panelling created with thick vertical lines add a vintage aesthetic. 

These patterns flow seamlessly towards the un-lined mesh territory of the shoulders, sleeves and back. The cascading lace up and down the arms is so effortlessly elegant, with the illusion effect providing a lighter, airier alternative to your standard ivory long sleeve wedding dress. The long sleeves on this wedding dress have lace cuffed around the wrists which frames the bride beautifully. 

For a show-stopping feature, the back of the bodice has the most dynamic and unique open back lace tattoo illusion with the beautiful floral lace pattern crystallising outwards from the centre back. This feature, along with the vertical lines, V-neckline and elegant sheath silhouette elongates the bride beautifully and ensures she looks gorgeous from all angles. The back of the wedding dress is cut off at the perfect position separating the bodice and skirt with a band of decorative lace, creating a stunning waistline. This boho wedding dress is a must-have for creative brides, and is perfect for rustic weddings, barn weddings and outdoor garden weddings. 

4/ Despina Illusion Lace Mermaid Wedding Gown by Pronovias

Despina  Tattoo Illusion Lace Wedding Dress by Pronovias Barcelona Bridal

The Despina wedding gown by Pronovias is the perfect mix of classy and contemporary with its bodice styling. The neckline is somewhere between a demure boat neck and a flirty sweetheart neckline combined with the V plunge drop. All that gorgeous lace on the bodice is once again just appliques on mesh! These appliques form a solid front bodice, trailing in to the back with micro cap sleeves- and this is where the illusion starts. 

The scattered lace shapes on the back of the wedding gown give a stunning rear view silhouette with the illusion tattoo lace effect. The back waist meets the skirt at a downwards point, which accentuates the beautiful mermaid shape, hugging down the hips and thighs and flowing in to a beautiful train.  

What makes this wedding dress even more beautiful is that there is a traditional style of lace embedded in to the train of the wedding dress, the length of which emphasises the stunning design. The defined pattern of the lace trim bordered the train adds to the traditional lace feel, and provides a stunning point of contrast to the more modern tattoo illusion lace features on the back of the wedding dress. 

5/ Erandi Wedding Dress by Pronovias

This simple styled wedding gown is the marriage of lace and simple crepe fabric. The bodice of this wedding gown is enriched in swirling lace which flows subtly from a sheer mesh backing on to the opaque crepe fabric on the hips, then gives way to an expanse of ivory before making its stunning reappearance in the stunning lace train of the wedding dress. The clear divide on this wedding gown between the bodice and the waistline accentuates the natural body shape of the bride, yet the flowing crepe mermaid silhouette and train help to lengthen the legs and give the illusion of height. 

Alongside the combination of two textures, this wedding dress sets itself apart from the previous tattoo-effect lace wedding dresses by creating a border that dissolves the illusion. The low V-neckline and the curved back neck line are highlighted with a beaded embellishment along the edges of the mesh, bringing it out of obscurity. Far from ruining the effect of the illusion wedding dress however, this border emphasises the negative space in the organic lace shapes and breaks up the plunging low back framed by the swooping tendrils of lace applique featured on the sides and lower back of the wedding gown's bodice. This helps to ground the bodice and remind the wedding guests that yes, the bride is indeed covered!

The bodice on this wedding dress is gorgeous when unlined, as pictured as the wedding dress is able to show off more of the gorgeous and intricate lace detailing.
