A crochet wedding dress might just be the crowning achievement of a crafty bride. After all, a handmade beautiful dress is perfect for a very special wedding day!
If you’re a crocheter, perhaps a crochet wedding dress has you drooling. You know the time that it takes to crochet and crocheting a wedding dress is a bit of a commitment. You might might be even wondering: Can you crochet a wedding dress? And Do you think that a crochet wedding dress is a good idea?
It is true. Crocheting a wedding dress is not for the faint of heart. It will require dedication and determination. Most crochet dresses are crocheted with finer weight yarn which means many time consuming stitches. But the finished product is completely worth it! Your handmade crochet dress will have your wedding guests oohing and ahhing.
Here are some gorgeous crochet dress ideas perfect for a wedding (some are even wonderful evening gowns for other occasions). Before diving in, there are a few things to keep in mind. A free crochet pattern for a crochet dress is next to impossible to find. A beautiful dress is usually quite intricate and most designers offer their designs as paid patterns. Take a moment to carefully read the listing descriptions to understand all the pattern details. Note the size(s) of the dress in the pattern along with the finished measurements and whether or not the dress can be made in a size that works for you.
Make sure that you know how to crochet the stitches used in the dress. And know how or be willing to learn how to read a crochet pattern. Crochet gauge is extremely important to getting the perfect fit, so be willing to spend time choosing a crochet hook that will give you the same gauge as the designer. Be sure to check out my favorite hooks I recommend to everyone to get the perfect gauge. Careful prep work is integral to a crochet wedding dress you will be proud to wear.

Here are my favorite crochet wedding dress patterns for your big day:
This dress from Tulipolga looks like a fun time! Equally perfect for an evening out or a modern wedding. I love the the crochet roses and the detail at the neck, arm openings and hem. Gorgeous!
Outstanding Crochet’s dress is such a classy and elegant look. This crochet lace dress is perfect for a wedding and brunch or dinner date afterwards!
If you’re looking for a boho vibe this dress from Mermaid Cat Designs has that flowy and flowery “boho” style! The plunging neckline with the laced up bodice look is beautiful. It’s also a bit less lace than some of the others which could make this an easier (and faster) crochet dress to crochet. This is a design that would work for many different body shapes and sizes (and maybe more forgiving with gauge). A great reasons to consider this beauty.
I love the texture pattern that Concept Creative Store used for this dress! It reminds me of sea shells! This also seems like a design that could be easily lengthened or shortened to suit the needs of the bride.
This fun, long-sleeved dress from Only Favorite Patterns is so cute with these lacey hearts. This would make a great evening gown too.
