For the bride, it’s all about the dress. Often, the entire mood of a wedding is determined by its design or the way it makes the bride feel. Does it have a show-stopping train? Is it light and airy with delicate lace detailing? Is there a dramatic neckline? No matter the style, one thing’s for sure. The bride chose her dress for a reason – to be seen. On the day of the wedding her dress should never be hidden, but sometimes a little coverage is necessary. These lace shawl patterns are perfect for traveling to and from the venue as well as providing modesty in a house of worship. Any of these lovely lace shawl patterns (knit in white or a light pastel) would be a wonderful choice for a spring or summer wedding.
With more freedom for color, the bridesmaids have the opportunity to get really creative with their accessories. These lace shawl patterns are both respectful yet stylish, and they look great in a group. Paired with a floor length or cocktail style dress, these knit shawl patterns are an elegant way for the bridal party to feel comfortable and polished while they help the bride get ready or pose for pictures. The lace detailing of these shawls look great with both bold and pastel shades of yarn, so have fun mixing and matching fibers to create the ultimate bridesmaid ensemble.
Mother of the Bride
It’s important for the mother of the bride to feel elegant, dignified, and appropriate at her daughter’s (or son’s) wedding. Any one of the lace shawl patterns in the selection below is a great choice for a classy, stylish, and very proud mother. The best part about each of these patterns is that they offer fuss-free ways to stay put around the shoulders. Whether it’s a fancy knot, a stunning shawl pin, or a sweeping shawl long enough to be throw over the back shoulder, these patterns are perfect for simple, wearable style.
There’s nothing sweeter than a tiny little flower girl making her way up the aisle in her tiny white dress. After the ceremony, button up that sweet little angel in any one of these lacy knit cardigan or knit shrug patterns. Perfect for toddling around the reception in style, these simple knits look lovely in white or any other color. Try matching the flower girl’s knit cardigan pattern to the color of the brides’ flower arrangement or the bridesmaids’ dresses for a classy, coordinating look.
Polish off your look with a pretty knit necklace or killer knit clutch for the ultimate wedding look. These patterns are great for stashbusting, and they also make wonderful knit gifts!
