Bridal Couture Guide 2015 - Part Two
Straps and Sleeves
Some of the best selling gowns at the recent Harrogate Bridal Show featured sleeves, some extending dramatically down to cover the wrist and even parts of the hand. Lace, as it always does, found its place in the bridal mix, decorating and edging the exciting wedding gown sleeves. Straps were also a popular addition to the bridal dress; from thick, bold and striking to slim, feminine and subtle, straps are definitely in.
All of our bridal lace trims are perfect for decorating and enhancing the fashionable beauty of sleeves and straps on the wedding dress. Match perfectly with your chosen lace to create a smooth, harmonious and ultimately breathtaking look.
Designers are currently favouring flattering A-lines but with an extra added twist in the form of a much fuller skirt than with which they would usually be paired. Box pleats and multi-layered effects made a big splash with rainbow fabrics adding a dazzling touch of colour.
Carnival coloured tulle from Platinum bridal Fabrics is the ideal material for creating a full skirt and the exciting range of colour choices means that a vivid spectrum can be easily created. Check out the full palette to be inspired.
Still the number one bridal fabric by a long way, lace is of course an essential part of every wedding dress. A particular focus on beaded lace was noticed on many haute couture catwalks recently, defined and embellished with the addition of delicate lace appliqués.
Bridal lace is our speciality and we have a truly massive selection covering every type available including many excellent examples of fine Chantilly lace. Powerful search tools enable you to refine your choices, of which you may then request samples. Our bridal team are always available by email, phone or in person to offer expert advice, inspiration and support on making the perfect choice for your special day.
