Finishing Touches - Beautiful Bridal Jewellery from Platinum Bridal Fabrics

As well as supplying a huge range of bridal fabrics, laces and embellishments, Platinum Bridal Fabrics are also proud to offer an exclusive range of jewellery for brides and bridesmaids, including hair combs, brooches and tiaras. These pieces are manufactured to the same exacting standards as our entire range of products.

A tiara adds a gorgeous finishing touch to any bridal gown and works particularly well with those of a vintage lace style. For a fresh, young look, Tiara AW1016 is perfect, with its heavily-embellished overlapping flowers that curve gently to one side. Tiara AW819 is another with a floral theme; beautiful flowers rest on a silver-coloured base and are highlighted with beads and rhinestones. A taste of luxury is provided by Tiara AW992. This delightful piece features gorgeous embellishments forming a series of attractive flowers and has loops to enable a firm attachment to the bride's hair. This tiara is truly fit for a princess.

Another way to finish off the bride's hair is with an embellished hair comb and Platinum Bridal Fabrics stock an extensive selection. A firm favourite is Hair Comb AW1028, an elegant and sophisticated choice. Diamante embellishments playfully catch light and extend to almost 7cm from the top of the comb in an attractively-eccentric display. For the bride who wishes to add a touch of flamboyance to her look, Hair Comb AW1064 is ideal with its unusual and striking design. The comb features an assortment of diamantes, pearls, ribbons and feathers that come together to create a truly unique item.

A brooch is a very traditional embellishment for a bridal gown and is experiencing a resurgence in popularity along with the vintage lace style. Platinum Bridal Fabrics currently offer four exclusive brooches that have been lovingly designed and expertly crafted. One of the most beautiful examples is Brooch, comprising diamantes in a mixture of shapes, sizes and cuts, set in a silvery fitting. This design has a beautiful antique feel to it and is perfectly suited to brides' and bridesmaids' gowns that are of a vintage lace style.

Direct From Paris - Brand New and Exclusive Lace Appliqués and Crystal Motifs

Our regular sourcing trip to Paris has this time produced a host of new crystal motifs and lace appliques. Used to add the perfect finishing touch to a wedding dress, these eye-catching embellishments are lovingly designed before being manufactured to highly-exacting standards. Highly-embellished motifs have enjoyed a surge in popularity as well-known designers continue to use them not only on bridal gowns but also on handbags, shoes, jewellery and other accessories.

One of our most beautiful crystal motifs ever, Lucina is guaranteed to turn even the most simple bridal gown into a stunning work of art. An abstract, asymmetric design of beads and pearls features three separate areas where beads are extended upwards to form three layers of beading, giving the piece a uniquely textured look. The beading and pearls are attached to one another using a single delicate thread around the outside and the whole is presented on easy-to-sew tulle fabric.

Eros is another stunning crystal motif, comprising an abstract butterfly shape formed from a variety of diamantes and bead work. At 9.5cm x 11.5cm, this large and highly-embellished motif is perfect for a bride who wants to really create a splash. Sequins add a touch of playfulness as they catch the light while delicate pearls give a vintage appeal.

These sumptuous products are just two of our new crystal motifs, which are all named after mythical Greek and Roman Goddesses in testament to their uniquely powerful beauty. Please enjoy browsing the full range.

Supplied in symmetrical pairs, lace appliqués are sewn onto a wedding gown, usually with the addition of matching lace trim. We have three beautiful new examples of these decorative appliqués, all prettily-named after flowers: Wisteria, Honeysuckle and Poppy. Ivory-coloured, these quality appliqués are decorated with pearls, beads, sequins and diamantes, elegantly corded and are tightly embroidered onto a tulle base, making them simple to sew onto the bridal dress.

Platinum Bridal Fabrics are proud to be one of the most diverse bridal fabric suppliers in the UK and we will continue to add to our range in order to bring the widest possible choice to our customers.

Direct From Paris - Brand New and Exclusive Bridal Lace

Another successful Platinum Bridal Fabrics sourcing trip to Paris, the City of Romance, has come to an end. We are now proud and excited to introduce the fruits of this adventure which include an array of new laces and embroidered crystal motif embellishments currently trending in the fashion capital. Here we look at some of our favourite new laces at Platinum Bridal Fabrics.

The queen of our new selection is Svetlana, a fine and luxurious ivory lace. Created by an extremely talented designer, this stunning bridal fabric has delicate thread woven through it that is then embroidered with beautiful ivory thread into an attractive lattice of floral designs. The largest of these flowers is a full four inches in height which makes this fabric incredibly eye-catching; this quality is further enhanced with beading, diamantes and pearl embellishments.

Skilfully combining two of the most current bridal trends, ivory lace and vintage lace, Marina is an embellished fabric that features a tightly-woven floral pattern. A sensuously soft background weave is teamed with rich embroidery, creating a unique lace with a well draping handle. Petals and leaves are outlined in delicate cord, pearls, an array of beads and subtle sequin enhancements.

To create Christina ivory wedding lace, a soft background tulle has been used. This has been skilfully embroidered with luxurious ivory thread to create an attractive floral theme with real vintage lace appeal, the striking vertical lines with Champagne filigree thread and ivory embroidery yarn recalling the sophistication and style of another era while still retaining contemporary appeal. Symmetrical, scalloped borders are decorated with a multitude of embellishments including sequins, pearls and tubular beads.

The bridal fabrics featured here form just a small part of our new selection; please enjoy browsing the full range. Many of the fabrics are manufactured on lead times of 3-4 months so, at present, only samples of these fabrics are available. Pre-ordering is available and the lace will be delivered as soon as we receive it: please check the individual product page for information on when your chosen fabric will become available.
