More New Crystal Wedding Dress Embellishments

We hope you have enjoyed browsing the latest crystal embroideries that have been added to the eclectic Platinum Bridal Fabrics selection. Our last article featured details of some of the new wedding dress embellishments and here we present several more for you to discover.

Aquila takes its name from the Latin word for ‘eagle’ and the motif perfectly captures the beauty and majesty of the rare bird with its dramatic sweeping wings. Wonderfully metallic, the design is embellished with pearls and beads which surround a large central diamante.

The simple asymmetric teardrop shape of Jedi crystal embroidery belies the complexity of its rendering, which utilises an extensive selection of materials including beads, gauze, pearls, filigree wiring and diamantes. Ideal for embellishing the wedding dress at the hip or belt, Jedi crystal embroidery shimmers with glamour and style.

Bold and beautiful, Greco crystal embroidery has an attractive shell shape which is embellished in sections. Swirls of beads and diamantes radiate around large central pearls to create a glistening and lustrous effect which is further enhanced by filigree and gauze; this asymmetric design is a real show-stopper.

Astrantia, the Greek word for ‘star’, is the perfect name for our next crystal embroidery. With a slim diamond-like shape that features undulating edges, this wedding dress embellishment is ideal for use at the waistline of the bridal gown. A particularly glamorous crystal embroidery, Astrantia makes expert use of sequins and chiffon in its esoteric design.

One of our more unusual designs is Aster, which has no clearly-defined top or bottom. This allows for creative use as the motif, which is composed of chiffon flowers embellished with filigree, pearls, diamantes and beads, can be sewn onto the bridal dress in any desired position. The design has an overall ivory tone though is also shot through with edges of white and silver.

Daring and dramatic, Muscari crystal embellishments have an elongated teardrop shape which is centred with a large diamante. This central stone is circled by smaller diamantes which give way to symmetrical wings that have been heavily beaded and further decorated with dazzling sequins.

A Beautiful Bridal Dress from the BBC and Royal Ballet Designer

Platinum Bridal Fabrics recently received a lovely email from Lindsey Wise, a dancer, dance teacher and choreographer with an extensive and impressive body of work. When Lindsey tied the knot, she asked her mother Jenny Wellon to create the bridal dress, the stunning results of which can be seen in the photographs accompanying this article.

Jenny Wellon creates bespoke gowns with an expert touch, designing with a rarely-seen flair and panache. With a background in dressmaking that has seen her costumes used by the BBC and the Royal Ballet, Jenny chooses materials of great beauty and superlative quality to perfectly suit the style, proportions and taste of each individual wearer. Many of the guests at Lindsey’s wedding expressed great admiration for her dress and Jenny has since received several new orders for her exciting and unique creations.

Jenny lovingly crafted her daughter’s gown using Samantha ivory lace with the addition of Columba lace embellishment. Samantha French Chantilly wedding lace features an attractive webbed ground with a floral design, elements of which are elegantly shaded with a fine cord and denser areas of webbing. With a double-scalloped edge and delicate fringe, Samantha ivory wedding lace is classy, elegant and refined. Columba, the embellishment chosen to perfectly complement Samantha wedding lace on Lindsey‘s dress, is truly stunning, with Georgette and satin laser-cut flowers highlighted with embroidery, beads, pearls and silver filigree.

Selecting from our wide range of wedding dress material can be difficult as there is so much to choose from; as Lindsey told us in her email, ‘..you had so many amazing fabrics it was very hard for us to decide what to use!’. As always, we endeavour to make this process easier with our samples service, of which Lindsey commented, ‘The samples you sent to us were a very generous size and this really helped.’

We would like to thank Lindsey for her lovely email. You can visit Jenny’s website at www.jennycouture.co.uk for more information on her work and to see more photographs.

Brides looking for a touch of soft glamour need look no further than Culture, a delectable ivory wedding dress embellishment.
