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 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). 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. A crochet gauge is extremely important to get 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. Careful prep work is integral to a crochet wedding dress you will be proud to wear.

If you’re looking for a boho wedding dress, this dress by Mermaid Cat Designs has that flowy and flowery boho style! The plunging neckline with the laced-up bodice look is beautiful.
