Doily Wedding Inspiration Ideas
If you thought doilies were just for your grandma, think again! Doilies are being incorporated into weddings in so many fresh and inspirational ways. Let’s take a look at a few below.

Who would have thought a bride could do a handmade gorgeous wedding dress like the one pictured on the left. She literally crocheted every single doily!

2. Doily Decor
There are a million ways to use doilies in your decor–these are just a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing: garlands, table runners, and napkin rings.
3. Doily Dessert

These are great! Love the wedding dresses!
I just love the instagram frame as well as the brightly colored bouquets wrapped in black & white. So much inspiration. Wish I could get married again so I could have an awesome wedding. 😉
I came across your page as I was searching for ideas on ways to give new life to doilies (I was recently given an entire box of vintage linens from an auction) and found these dresses to be so breathtakingly beautiful. Thank you so much for posting them!
Omg the earings are so great…i love it…and the dress…so inspirational
Oh, I love this post! Such a romantic and creative transposition of this vintage classic into a modern yet meaningful wedding context!
Omgdness! This is soo pretty! And I soo agree with Jodi, my head is spinning with ideas on using doilies for my wedding! Awesome inspirations <3
I never thought I would love doileys so much! It seems like I’m not the only one 🙂
I love the use of the doilies! I especially love the thought of reusing old ones.
As a wedding photographer, I like to follow a few wedding blogs because it’s so fun to see what people are doing – the industry is so full of creativity. You’ve been my favorite wedding blog for awhile now. But since I recently got engaged, I love L&L like a gazillion times more than I did before. It’s posts like these (and the reusing wedding items and the non-flower bouquets posts) that make me so grateful for you guys!!!
I totally have a doily obsession! I love this post!
So pretty, love the delicate nature of doilies. So many cool uses here!
wow!! those dresses are FANTASTIC! can’t go wrong with doilies 🙂
It’s so amazing when a traditional (sometimes boring) item becomes fresh & fun again. Thanks so much for showcasing all the wonderful, creative uses for doilies!
Doilies have never been my favorite, but these look vintage glamorous. I especially love the wedding dress with the green underneath, I’d wear it for any wedding!
OMG thank you for this!!! What a great inspirational post! My head is now spinning with more wedding ideas! Thank you!
I used to think doilies were old and creepy and during my wedding planning process and looking at vintage doilies I know love them and I love all the uses for them for a wedding.
