As we converse with our modern brides, one of the most frequently asked questions is how to make their pieces more special. After all, a bespoke piece is something more personal and customizable.
The special part of creating your bespoke piece is not only making your dream dress come to life with the best fit for your body, but also the way that you can control all the little details of your outfit. Here are some simple ways that you can do to make your bespoke piece even more special.
Adding pearls or fabric buttons could be a subtle yet impactful detail to your outfit. When similar colored buttons are added, it helps to add dimension to the outfit. However, when you choose a different colored button, it will create an accent and contrast, a different look to the outfit that will capture attention.
A cutout back detail allows individuals to showcase their style through shapes, whilst enhancing the allure of a dress. It creates a focus on the back, creating an unexpected point of interest, and a balance between coverage and exposure. This makes it a popular choice for those who want to showcase a specific area of their body without being too revealing.
While white is still a classic choice for wedding dresses, many brides recently opted for dresses in soft pastels, blush, and even bold colors like red and black. The addition of color does not have to be extensive, it can also be small accents, gradients, and more. To make your piece more special and different. This choice is also popular for your 'evening look' or a 'second dress' on top of your classic white.
Layering of fabrics
Layers can be achieved through various techniques, including ruffles, pleats, tulle overlays, cascading fabrics, or tiered skirts. These layers can create a romantic and ethereal effect, making the bride appear as if she is floating down the aisle. Some popular fabrics to use would be chiffon, organza, tulle, lace, and more.
Another way of adding layers to your bridal piece is to add a detachable piece or outer, such as sleeved tops, capes, and more. Lace, sheer fabrics, or even feathers can create a beautifully textured effect, adding drama and intrigue to the bridal ensemble, whilst providing coverage when a conventional look is needed. You may also add a veil or a train, for a more classic bridal look.
The addition of subtle and simple lace or embroidery can add so much to the outfit. It adds personal touch whilst creating a sense of opulence and intricacy, adding a luxurious touch to the overall bridal look.
Less is more. For modern bridal wear, fewer details would make it more meaningful. The end goal is to create a focus on your outfit without doing too much. If you're unsure what details would be suitable for your bespoke piece, our stylist will be here to guide you through!
