The truth is, there’s few brides who will choose a plain fabric for their wedding dress and even the simplest bridal gown has its unique embellishments to make it stand out. Each design must carefully use the right decorations to make sure they sit together in perfect unison.
Beads, Pearls and Sequins
Sewn carefully onto the dress, they come in all shapes and sizes and can cover any area of your wedding dress, depending on which look you desire. They are a great accessory to wear for a little sparkle and shine.
Applique is cut out fabric, which is carefully sewn onto the dress. The most popular pattern at the moment is lace applique, which works extremely well with other materials, beads , pearls and sequins.
Embroidery can be done either by hand or machine. Usually most embroidery patterns on wedding dresses are floral designed and may appear on the bodice, a full skirt and hem lines.
Ruffles and Frills
When we talk about sewing techniques, a basic one is pleating and gathering. Here we would like to include ruffles and frills into embellishments. They can be attached to the wedding dress surface to make the dress look ever so pretty.
Lace is an excellent tool for a formal and romantic feeling. Lace also plays an important role when it comes to a Vintage themed wedding.
Ribbons & Bows
A great way to finish a design off is with a pretty bow to the front empire seam or the back waist. They look great when used in a different color of fabric quality, such as lace mixed with satin ribbon.
