Not that we’re complaining - we absolutely adore receiving photos and emails from our happy, radiant and uniquely-gorgeous customers who have used wedding dress fabric from our unrivalled collection to create the dress of their dreams. We know you’re going to love the gown pictured here as much as the blushing bride loved wearing it so read on to find out all the divine details!
Bride Iris who married her Husband Martin last year, started the journey that led to this magnificent wedding dress with a few simple keywords and phrases - ethereal, romantic, lacy but not too flowery, close-fitting and with a sweetheart neckline. A dressmaker was employed to create a design but one look at the result convinced Iris’s future mother-in-law Vivienne that she could do much better for Iris’s big day.
Vivienne lives in Cornwall and could not find a wide choice of bridal fabrics there, leading her to do an online search. She discovered our site and made use of our free sample service to get a shortlisted selection of satin and lace - almost immediately, both Iris and Vivienne jointly decided that Madeleine Corded & Beaded Lace was by far the best of the bunch. Supreme Satin and Primrose & Sagittarius Trims also made the grade, completing a quintessential quad of wedding dress fabrics.
Madeleine ivory lace features deep scallop trim to either side, producing a classic yet contemporary effect. It is impossible to tell the difference between silk and the more robust Supreme satin except by the cost - the fabric has a heavy weight and hangs beautifully as can be seen in the photos here. Primrose crystal trim was used on the shoulder straps and at the back of Iris’s bespoke bridal gown while the Sagittarius trim perfectly adorned the front - this wedding dress embellishment was loved so much by Vivienne and Iris that they quickly ordered another to creatively use as an eye-catching wristlet.
Vivienne tells us that we were her first choice because of “the quality of the fabrics, the choice offered and the helpfulness of the staff”. Making us blush, she also adds that we are “an excellent company with first-class products and customer service to match - this is quite often missing these days!”.
