Grace Loves Lace

In 2010, Grace Loves Lace founder Megan Ziems had an idea. Disillusioned with the structured, traditional wedding “uniform” that dominated the market, SHE SET OUT TO CHANGE THE INDUSTRY. She believed that quality shouldn’t be dictated by a price tag, that A WOMAN SHOULDN’T HAVE TO SACRIFICE STYLE FOR COMFORT and that brides of today deserved better than average…

AND SO BEGAN the story of Grace Loves Lace. Since then, our team created a whole new perspective to bridal dressing and have been designing gowns we want to wear. Our handmade gowns are all about effortless luxury, quality and style. We design for the women whose passion burns bright like a flame; the women who love fearlessly with all of their hearts. We design gowns that have soul, originality and authenticity.

Located in the Cortez Hill neighborhood near downtown, Grace Loves Lace is booking both in-store and virtual appointments.
