An Embroidery Wedding

Embroidery. It can be something done over the top and artsy or can be really delicate and just lovely. Either way, we at wedding collectibles are kind of falling in love with embroidery on your wedding day. If your like what? That stuff on my grandmother’s pillow? That can’t be pretty at a wedding. Let’s just say – and we mean this in the nicest way possible – you are just dead wrong.

Take a look. You won’t be disappointed!

The Wedding Dress

Meadow Bustier Wedding Gown... women boho by jadadreaming on Etsy

Even with the embroidery on this dress being more traditional in style and patch worked ,it looks like it is exactly the way it was meant to be. You could actually probably do something similar with your bridal handkerchief. With this style, it would be easy to include a little something old, borrowed, new and even blue! One thing we love, is while the embroidery definitely makes this dress different, it doesn’t overpower the dress and it is still very bridal. For example, this dress was posted in the Jadadreaming etsy shop, whose designer Jada, makes custom pieces. If you like this dress, her work might just be the perfect fit for you!

Next, the embroidery in this gown flows so perfectly, the dress just wouldn’t exist without it. Again, a gown with embroidery like this really just adds a little personality and beauty. It is like the cherry on top to a gown that says, “I am getting married. I am in love.” This gown was the jewel of a western-inspired wedding featured on and is a Needle and Thread gown from Net-A-Porter.

A lace and embroidery styled wedding cake isn’t a brand new idea, but it is a pretty one. What’s great is it opens the door to having a very traditional wedding cake without it being the traditional all white.

A lot of blogs suggest an embroidery wedding as part of a boho wedding theme, which we are sure works great, but it isn’t the only style it works for. In fact, with the large variety of styles open, embroidery really can be infused into any wedding! Whether its a backdrop or table numbers, a touch of embroidery can really add some whimsy.

Kind of like it captures the idea of wish…
