I consider it the Kate Middleton effect:  lace-trimmed dresses are everywhere right now.  The traditional lace overlay has given way to dresses with bits of sheer lace over the chest, shoulders and sleeves.

Lace bodices work with a variety of silhouettes and styles, from sophisticated to bohemian.

A vintage dress can be a great way to incorporate beautiful lace into your wedding attire.

The Monique Lhullier dress on the left incorporates a swath of tulle instead of traditional lace (via Bridal Beauty).  The Lazaro dress on the left is unique because the lace bodice features such intricate beading (via Belle the Magazine).

Do you like lace dresses, or are you over this trend?
