We think that’s rubbish: glasses are beautiful and can be fully adapted into any kind of bridal style you want.

Perfect for a more relaxed wedding, especially at stunning outdoor locations such as the beach or countryside, crochet has the same intricate pattern weaving effect but with a more textured appearance. Whether used for a skirt, bodice, or veil, you can pair your bridal wear with other crocheted details, such as decorations and table coverings.
