DIFFERENT TYPES OF EMBELLISHMENTS


Different Embellishments - Dream Dresses by PMN

Wanting a way to jazz-up your bridal look, and take your ensemble to another level? Embellishments are a fabulous way of achieving a glamorous bridal aesthetic, and are great at instantaneously changing a gown into something personal, and special to you. After securing your dream gown, the next step is often deciding if you would like to add any finishing details or touches to enhance your bridal piece. Wedding dress embellishments can vary from adding lace appliqué, sequins, pearls, beadings, crystals, and so much more! The unique thing about embellishments is that you are able to add as many, or as little, as you like on your gown; it is entirely up to you! Today, we will share with you some of the most popular bridal embellishments that can convert even the simplest of gowns into an unforgettable custom master piece.

Color beadings

Beadings are a magical adornment that can add an extra sparkle and glimmer to your bridal gown, creating the most dreamy shimmer as the light hits you. Beads can vary in shape, size and color, making them incredibly versatile to fit your style, and are easily customizable. Recently, nontraditional gowns are growing in popularity, and to accommodate to this rising trend, we are able to embellish colored beadings onto your alternative wedding gown! By adding beadings that are the same color as your dress, this can make the overall aesthetic look more cohesive and stylish if you desire a subtle twinkle that isn't too overwhelming. Our bold Gabrielle black ball gown has been encrusted with black colored beadings for a show-stopping, exquisite look. These twinkling accents look spectacularly dazzling as you glide down the aisle, and add a luxurious touch to your gown.

Rhinestone crystals

Astonish your guests with some bedazzling rhinestone crystal embellishments. Rhinestone crystals look undeniably enchanting and elegant on any bridal piece, adding that extra glamorous and lavish je ne sais quoi. Rhinestones are a much more affordable option than diamonds or other precious gemstones, and achieve the same sparkle and shine at a lower cost. Our radiant Breshawn mermaid wedding gown is truly breathtaking, with almost 10,000 rhinestone crystals and beads that adorn the entirety of this ensemble. A fully beaded look not only looks dramatic and delightful, it also adds an ornate, charming effect. Our Breshawn gown will most certainly have you twinkling all through the night!

Lace appliqué

There's something so beguiling about lace appliqué, as this decorative motif is oh-so romantic and feminine. Lace appliqué is essentially pieces of fabric that are cut into different shapes, such as floral or swirl designs, and then attached onto the gown. Generally, the lace appliqué pieces are sewn onto sheer, transparent materials or nude-colored fabrics, and are great at enhancing certain points of a gown, such as a plunging neckline, whimsical skirt or illusion bodice. Our Lucille illusion cut-out wedding gown is unbelievably elegant and chic, with stunning lace appliqué that adorns the illusion bodice and back. This dress looks truly ornate and unique with decorative floral lace that cascades down from head-to-toe.

Lace appliqué and 3D appliqué embellishments are fitting for romantic brides who desire a subtle decorative enhancement that adds depth and texture to their bridal attire.

Another sparkly embellishment option is to add sumptuous Swarovski crystals onto your gown for an unlimited gleaming glitz look. Swarovski crystals are renowned for their quality and shine, and are another popular choice for budding brides. Our Juliana lace and chiffon high slit gown most certainly achieves a breathtaking sparkle and exquisite texture. With a twinkling beaded bodice, this one-of-a-kind piece will definitely make a grand entrance on your big day!

Are you a bride seeking a classic, timeless embellishment addition for your bridal look? Pearls are an effortlessly elegant decorative choice that add depth, dimension and texture to any bridal piece. Similar to beadings, pearls are easily attached to an ensemble and add a 3D feel. Our Tilda removable bridal cape sleeves with soft glitter tulle and pearls ooze vintage glam and opulence. We love our simple, yet effective, our pearl embellishments look on this detachable bridal accessory! Another fabulous reason to choose pearl embellishments is that they can add a vintage, retro vibe, or create a feminine, Hollywood style glamor look.

Beaded lace is a stunning way of adding depth and dimension to your gown, ensuring the floral accents adorned on Katerina to stand out, and make a statement.

Clear beadings are ideal for those who seek a subtle shimmer and bling, without the look being too overpowering and dominating.

Sequins

Last, but not least, our final embellishment we will discuss today is sultry sequins! Sequins tend to have an association of looking cheap and over-the-top, however, when done right, sequins are the perfect addition for a soft glam look. Sequins add an irreplaceable iridescent glimmer onto an ensemble and can attain that barely-there shine. We are here to tell you: do not fear sequins! They are just as glamorous and luxurious as beadings and pearls, yet, they add a totally different dimension and flair to the look. Our stunning Livia fingertip veil looks truly mesmerizing with a flirty sequin pattern that adorns the veil's trim. Sequins can be arranged in any design and pattern to suit your desires; perfect!
