5 Ways to Embrace Embellished Wedding Gowns
Updated: Mar 13
Embellishments can take a simple, classic wedding look and turn it into something really special. And for brides looking for a bit of bling or something extra, there has never been a more exciting time in bridal fashion. From the subtle to the extravagant, here are some of our favorite ways to add that visual interest to your wedding day look.
Add a statement belt: It can be as easy as adding a belt to turn a classic look into something a bit more modern. Even better, belts and sashes can be added even to dresses that don’t come with them, so if you find your dream dress but want to add some sparkle, this may be the perfect fix.
Emphasize the waist: Of course, a belt doesn't just add sparkle, it can also emphasize the waist. You can use a belt on a dress that already has embellishment to complement the underlying design of subtle sparkle.
Emphasize the details of the dress: If you find another detail you love, like a flutter cap sleeve or illusion back, then embellishment like beading and rhinestones can draw even more attention to these stunning elements.
Opt for beading over lace: If you like the lacy look but want something a little more modern, then all-over embellishment may be for you! It can be subtle or exaggerated, but either way the sparkle is sure to create quite a statement.
Transform a classic look: Embellishment like the beautiful halter detail on this gown is the perfect way to transform a classic neckline into something unique and modern.
