Worth the Wait - Ten Exclusive New Laces Now in Stock

The Platinum Bridal Fabrics range of wedding dress material, bridal lace, embellishments and accessories is an extensive one, offering an infinite variety of permutations. In order to maintain our enviable reputation as one of the biggest and most diverse suppliers of bridal fabrics in the UK, we continue to source and supply the very latest trends along with a host of tried and trusted favourites. With a biannual sourcing trip to Paris and a presence at every major bridal fashion event, Platinum Bridal Fabrics remain at the forefront of the bridal fabrics suppliers market.

Regular readers of this page will recall that Platinum Bridal Fabrics ordered an exclusive selection of new laces in September. Amidst much excitement, these laces have all arrived and orders are being sent out in time for Christmas. All of these new additions are already proving immensely popular.

The regal, elegant and luxurious Barbara is a wonderful new addition to our range of bridal lace. With a high level of embellishment and a strikingly unusual pattern of vertical lines, diamond-shaped motifs and small geometric shapes. The pearls, sequins and beads that make up these unique patterns and shapes reflect light in a dynamic way, giving a sense of movement and energy to the fabric. Barbara is a lace for a daring bride with a sharp sense of style, combining traditional and modern elements.

Vintage lace styles are currently enjoying an explosion in popularity, being seen everywhere from haute-couture catwalks to Hollywood movies. Rhiannon, another new addition to our bridal lace collection, is a wedding lace with a floral theme. Large, densely-embroidered flowers with beautifully-shaded petals are surrounded by smaller floral bouquets, all exhibiting the same delicately ivory-corded detail. A perfect complement to a bridal dress with a refined, classy feel, Rhiannon has fringed edges and matching scallops, making this vintage lace style look truly authentic.

With a delicate hexagonal tulle and clear, open areas of fabric enveloping decorative floral motifs, the prettily-named Lily is a sleekly ephemeral fabric. The centres of the flowers are highlighted with tubular and spherical diamantes and beads while a soft, fine thread outlines the petals. In a soft ivory colour, Lily has symmetrically-scalloped and fringed edges which will add an excitingly diaphanous tone to a simple, classic wedding dress.

These are just some of the several new laces that Platinum Bridal Fabrics are now pleased to supply as full rolls, part rolls or specified lengths. The other new members of the collection are Helena, Pamela, Maya, Audrey, Emily, Charmaine and Alice. For more information on these laces or any of our comprehensive selection of wedding dress fabric, lace applique, crystal motifs, embellishments and much more, please contact a member of our experienced team.

Merry Christmas from Platinum Bridal Fabrics

Christmas is nearly here and shortly after that will begin a brand new year. Bridal Fabrics look eagerly forward to moving into 2013 and continuing to bring our customers the widest selection of bridal lace and wedding dress material in the UK.

December is both a time for reflection on the events of the year and a time for planning the future. Platinum Bridal Fabrics have enjoyed an exciting and memorable 2012, with many changes happening. The year saw the opening of our first overseas sales centre in Poland, a fantastic step forward for Platinum Bridal Fabrics. Eastern Europe is rapidly becoming a hotbed of wedding gown designers and we are now working extensively with clients throughout Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Austria and Lithuania. Representatives of the company travelled to Paris twice in 2012 on our biannual sourcing trip. After attending many fabric and textile fairs as well as haute couture fashion shows, we were able to select a great many new styles of bridal lace, crystal motifs and embellishments, silks and lace applique to provide to our diverse customer base.

Also in 2012, Platinum Bridal Fabrics attended a number of shows and exhibitions, such as the White Gallery London 2012 Bridal Exhibition in May. We supply many of our products to the talented fashion designers, including Royal Couturier Stewart Parvin, whose work was featured at the exhibition. The White Gallery Bridal Exhibition is hailed as the most stylish bridal design event in the UK and many stunning creations were revealed. Another exciting event was the 2012 British Bridal Exhibition which took place in the beautiful area of Harrogate. As the largest trade-only event of this type in Europe, the exhibition provided us with an ideal chance to showcase our many products and make further international contacts.

Throughout the year we have been adding new products to our website. These products reflect the changing trends in the world of bridal fabrics, particularly the explosion in popularity of the vintage lace style. Our expert team have assisted thousands of brides to create their perfect dress either from scratch or by customising an existing garment with our fantastic selection of trims, laces, silks and appliques.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish our customers and staff a very Merry Christmas and an exciting and prosperous New Year. Platinum Bridal Fabrics will be closing on Thursday 20th December, which is also our last despatch date, until we reopen on Wednesday 2nd January. For more information on any of our products and services, please contact a member of our dedicated and professional customer service team.
