WHAT'S A BRIDE TO DO?
This happens all the time. Wedding/fashion/inspiration bloggers post images of something very off-the-charts gorgeous, sans shopping links and/or no links tracing back to it (I'm guilty of this I'm sorry to report).
The above dress is a perfect case in point. Exquisite antique-looking lace but tracing back to a designer source even through Pinterest I found hard (Still trying). Plan B: Making your own version (or having someone else make it) is a great idea because you can add your own touches. If you're DIY savvy you know searching for the right fabric and laces can be an enriching and fun experience for inspiring you on. Thus rejoice! Online sources for hard to find laces and notions are sprouting up all over the place. With Martha Stewart and all the Style Me Pretty type Gurus out there introducing the new, new things made out of silky, notions and specialty fabrics, merchants are getting the message they have to offer up their wares if they want to survive these days. All I can say is thank GOD! Here are a few of my own personal favs for both online and brick and mortar shopping:
