Crystal Embellishments - Our Newest Selection

Crystal embroidery is used to create attractive areas of shimmering light on the wedding gown. Easily attached, these gorgeous embellishments are available in an extensive variety of shapes and designs, allowing every bride to create her perfect and unique wedding dress. As they are also easily-removed, crystal embellishments are a popular addition to a bridesmaid's dress which can then be worn again after the wedding is over. Two new pieces of fantastic crystal embroidery have been added to our extensive collection.

Dazzlingly-attractive yet refined and elegant, Lobelia is a striking example of crystal embroidery. The most beautiful beads, sequins and diamantes are expertly affixed to the long, slim design, which can be used in a variety of ways. Creative brides will be able to use Lobelia as a shoulder strap or on the waistline, along with an infinite variety of other possibilities.

The enigmatic Mistral is a striking crystal embellishment, principally designed for using at the waist of a bridal dress. The diamantes, beads and sequins that form the strong shape of the design are individually selected before being embroidered by hand onto the finest ivory tulle.

Another exciting way to add intrigue and individuality to a wedding gown is with the use of lace appliqués. Platinum Bridal Fabrics stock a comprehensive selection of these beautiful products, of which the newest example is Poppy. Supplied as a symmetrical pair, Poppy lace appliqués measure 32cm x 13cm and comprise a selection of pearls, beads and diamantes which are expertly embroidered onto an ivory tulle base of superlative quality. Elegant cording completes these enticing lace appliqués, which are lovingly designed before being manufactured to the highest levels of quality.

Our Bridal Lace Collection Continues to Grow

Our large selection of bridal lace has recently been added to. Three new styles of lace are now available from our comprehensive selection of wedding material, with the usual Platinum Bridal Fabrics guarantee of superior quality at a competitive price.

Platinum Bridal Fabrics are proud to present Gemma, a striking and glamourous wedding lace designed for a bride who wants to create a sense of excitement with her wedding gown. This gorgeous ivory fabric has a sleek and delicate tulle ground that gives it a luxuriously soft and draping presence, further enhanced with subtle floral designs that have been skilfully embroidered. Selected flowers are highlighted with a fine cord that draws the eye, while the remainder of the design features a bold and heavy double-cord, beautifully complementing the highlighted areas. With symmetric scalloped and fringed edges, Gemma wedding lace is also embellished with beads, pearls and entrancing transparent sequins.

Bold, arresting and spectacular, Keeley is an exciting addition to our extensive range of bridal lace. The background pattern is formed from an array of weaving styles from open to dense and the vintage lace style borders are symmetrically fringed. Keeley wedding lace is characterised by the extensive and delicate use of cording, which surrounds a leaf and flower motif. Boucle-style edging highlights the floral designs while tubular and spherical beads add an exciting lustre, complemented by the selective use of pearls.

The final addition to our extensive collection of bridal lace is Whitney, a truly unique design. This striking yet delicate lace features circular lace frills that encompass a beautiful star-shaped motif embellished with a selection of embroidery thread, lace trim and beads. The matching scalloped edges of Whitney ivory wedding lace are thrown into sharp definition through the addition of clear, light-catching sequins.

As with the entire collection of wedding lace available from Platinum Bridal Fabrics, all of these new laces can be supplied to specified lengths and samples are available on request.

Crystal Motifs - Brand New and Exclusive

Another fantastic array of brand new bridal fabrics has been added to our extensive collection. Several new laces are featured in this stunning range, along with some beautiful new lace trim. As crystal motifs continue to grow in popularity with the vintage wedding dress style, we have also added five new examples of these beautifully-embroidered embellishments.

Our new crystal motifs are all prettily-named after flowers, reflecting the natural beauty they possess. Adding the perfect finishing touch to any bridal gown, these motifs are sure to create a dazzling display as they catch, collect and reflect light playfully.

The soft, ethereal beauty of the sea-dwelling anemone is perfectly captured in our first new crystal motif. With its elegant embroidery and diamantes of varying sizes surrounding a striking wired adornment, Anemone exudes elegance and sophistication. The design measures 9cm x 8cm and would work well with a variety of styles, especially vintage lace.

With an eye-catching shape and large diamantes, the Tulip crystal motif instantly commands attention. Elegant curvature and filigree thread draw the eye to the top of this elegant design, which then cascades back down in an explosion of crystallised beauty with an array of sizes and shapes of diamantes. This motif is designed with a daring, flamboyant bride in mind.

Carnation is a truly stunning crystal motif, with its asymmetric shape and heavy embellishment. Diamantes are combined with a selection of beads, pearls and delicate fabrics to give an exciting visual display, abstractly representing the traditional wedding flower the motif takes its name from. With a generous size of 17cm x 11.5cm, Carnation is one of our larger crystal motifs.

Allium is an exciting design, with closely packed embellishments giving way to more open areas. There is a subtle sense of uniform about this unique piece, with its precisely arranged pearls, diamantes and beads forming an almost badge-like shape. This interesting arrangement is reminiscent of the Victorian era and will perfectly suit a vintage lace gown.

Our final new crystal motif is Vanda, named after one of the most beautiful species of orchid. At 25cm x 14cm, this is a very large design and will turn any wedding gown into a work of art with its refined yet riotous charm. Delicate leaves, with an attractive two-tone effect, radiate dramatically outwards from the centre which is gorgeously clustered with diamantes. Sequins and beads are expertly arranged to optimise the play of light, which centres around the beautiful dual tones of the leaves.

Please enjoy examining our new crystal motifs which are, like our entire range of wedding fabrics, able to view with a high level of magnification. Don't forget, if you have used our products to create a stunning garment or accessory, you can send in your photo to feature in the gallery on our website.

Exclusive Bridal Lace - The Latest in Luxury

Platinum Bridal Fabrics are excited to announce the arrival of three very exclusive new laces. These desirable laces have been incredibly difficult to obtain and demand has been high but we now have stock of all three for the first time.

All of the new wedding fabrics have a 132cm (52") width and are ivory in colour, meaning they are perfectly suited to creating a wedding gown with a vintage lace style. The vintage look continues to grow in popularity and has been seen on catwalks around the world, recalling the sophistication and glamour of a bygone era while adding daring modern twists.

The first of our new bridal laces is the delicate and feminine Philippa, an embellished fabric with large floral rosettes. Each embroidered rosette is embellished with eye-catching ivory cord and the soft ivory tulle background adds a luxurious touch. Identically-scalloped edges complete this beautifully-designed bridal lace.

Joining Philippa in the new collection is Ellen, an ivory corded lace featuring an attractive and close-set series of flower garlands. The garlands, along with the borders of the fabric, are expertly shaded and corded with embroidery thread and the edges of this gorgeous lace are identical, gently scalloped and fringed.

Our final new lace is Margaret. This ivory corded lace is truly fit for a queen, with a single, softly-scalloped border that repeats every 20cm. Two subtly-different scallops run along the edge, adding a unique twist to this vintage lace style. The background of the lace is shot through with large floral bouquets that give an arresting effect. Both bouquets and borders and elegantly shaded and corded with delicate embroidery while the high-quality tulle features an attractive shadow garland running through it, complementing the overall design.

We are always glad to add new items to our extensive collection in order to continue with our commitment to providing the most comprehensive choice of quality bride and groom fabrics available in the UK. All of our laces can be cut to desired lengths or supplied as whole pieces and samples are usually readily available.

Brand New Bridal Fabrics Now in Stock

Platinum Bridal Fabrics are excited to announce the arrival of several new bridal laces, crystal trims, crystal motifs and lace appliqués.

Our newest bridal lace is Roberta, a gorgeous ivory wedding fabric with a vintage lace feel. This vintage look is enhanced with the use of dark ivory beads, sequins and stunning pearls that form floral garlands and motifs with a distinctly Baroque style. The embellishments are sewn with a dense embroidery thread onto the softest of tulle backgrounds, creating a truly striking design. Joining Roberta is Ruby, another vintage lace style that also features floral garlands sewn onto soft tulle with dense ivory thread. Each detail is embellished with Champagne-coloured filigree thread and made further beautiful with the addition of light-reflecting, colourless sequins.

Crystal trims add a fantastic aspect to a bridal gown and the Platinum Bridal Fabrics selection is a comprehensive one. We have added two new examples of this attractive bridal fabric to our selection: Primrose and Petunia. Both trims are heavily embellished with a sumptuous selection of crystals, pearls, sequins, diamantes and beads, skilfully embroidered onto tulle background for easy sewing.

Crystal motifs add the unique finishing touch to a wedding dress. An emerging trend is for these beautiful items to be used asymmetrically, either on the shoulder straps of the wedding gown or on the gown itself. Dahlia and Gladioli are the latest additions to our range of crystal embroidery and are both beautifully decorated with a variety of beading, diamantes and pearls.

Supplied in symmetrical pairs, our new lace appliqués are Wisteria and Honeysuckle. Both ivory in colour, these enticing products are easily sewn onto a wedding gown and the elegant highlighted cording provides a uniquely beautiful effect. Further embellishments of sequins and pearls are designed to create a breathtaking sensation.
