What icing medium would you use to recreate the lace on the brides wedding dress for the cake. I am wondering if there is somekind of transfer method, any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I would use royal icing.

Should I just make my own pattern, outline over it with the royal icing and then transfer to cake or should I just put it diredtly onto the cake?

. . . I would probably use fondant (or perhaps crusting buttercream) and then use "real" lace to make an impression . . . this would be perfect if you were able to get an actual piece of the lace used on the brides dress . . . but I'm sure you could find a suitable piece of lace at a fabric store . . . http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=955853
