Embroidery is a very beautiful and decorative art that can be used to decorate almost everything. When it comes to wedding dresses, embroidery is used in many ways. Some of them are:
Heavily Embroidered Wedding Dresses
Heavy embroidery is one of the most popular ways of decorating your wedding dress. You can use different colors and designs for your embroidery to make your dress look unique. The best thing about this kind of embroidery is that you can add any design you want on your dress.
Embroidered Wedding Dress With Lace
Another way to add elegance and beauty to your dress is by adding lace. Lace looks amazing on every type of dress, whether its heavily embellished or plain as it makes the whole outfit more elegant and chic.
Wedding Dress With Coloured Embroidery
When you picture romantic “I dos,” it’s hard to get visions of festive flowers and bold blooms out of your head. And even though you’re probably utilizing the classic wedding element for your decor, we love to see brides incorporate florals in other areas of their day-of aesthetic as well. In fact, not only can you carry flowers on the big day, but you can wear them as well. Floral wedding gowns are becoming one of our favorite styles for brides who want to up the romance factor on their special day.
Now before you think all floral gowns are covered in embellishments, the dreamy aesthetic comes in a variety of styles. While there are plenty of options with realistic 3D blooms, you could also opt for something more understated, like a gown with floral lace or subtle pops of detail and color. And the best part is, floral wedding dresses are perfect for any season, venue, and formality. Select a colorful gown for a garden wedding or a sequin-adorned frock for a vintage-style affair.
