Mum & Daughter — Who Wore it Best...?!
There isn’t much that is cuter than seeing a daughter follow her mother down the aisle in the important role of Flower Girl and, when the pretty pair wear matching gowns, the effect is complete. We recently received a lovely email from bride Ivett Bosnyak with these wonderful photos attached and are pleased to share them with you here.
The story of these two gorgeous gowns includes another generation of the family - Ivett’s mum - who designed and made both of the garments. Working skillfully with Naomi white flower lace and Glitterati tulle, the matriarch of the family painstakingly stitched the dresses from scratch and was impressed by the quality of the material, which was easier to work with than she had thought that it would be.
This corded border lace is extremely versatile and can easily be used on veils and other accessories. It has a particularly-fine tulle ground which has been excitingly enhanced with an abundance of 3d laser-cut flowers arranged in an eye-catching bouquet. Two further flowers, each made from lace and laser-cut fabric, are centred with a large, glittering diamante and form the centre of attention on this stunning design.
Heavily-embroidered leaves are also a big feature of this design; covered with hand-sewn beads and edged with exotic silver filigree, they produce a breathtaking effect and the whole is framed by identical, expertly-designed borders. Each metre of the fabric contains approximately 36 motifs and these can be individually used as wedding dress embellishments.
Taking the brave decision to risk being upstaged, Ivett decided to add a little more sparkle to her daughter’s Flower Girl outfit! Our Glitterati tulle was absolutely perfect for the job, as you can see from the photos. Another highly-versatile fabric, creative designers can really go wild as Bridal Fabrics offer such a low price. Ivett used our Facebook page to get advice on which fabric to use with the Naomi lace and got a quick, detailed response - are YOU part of our FB community yet?
Ivett’s wedding took place at the beach and somehow ended up covered in seawater! She washed the dress and tells us it now looks as good as new thanks to the quality of the fabrics. Phew!
We would like to thank Ivett for sending in her email and invite you to do the same. You could even end up on these very news pages yourself! Go on, drop us a line to firstname.lastname@example.org
