Gown Fabrics

1a. Chantilly Lace

The chantilly lace has been well-sought after since the 18th century for its delicate, defined patterns, and lavish details. It is an exquisite choice to have the chantilly lace adorned to your wedding gown if you would like to wear something that is dreamy and vintage.

1b. Embroidered Lace

The embroidered lace is woven delicately using a thread and needle, producing an intricate design filled with elaborated details. Due to the handmade nature of the product, these designs can be customised, giving your wedding gown a unique touch.

1c. Alencon Lace

The alencon lace is a needlepoint lace typically used to produce floral designs on a sheer or net background. It gives a romantic and dainty look on your wedding dress, making you look like a princess out of a disney movie!

Chiffon is a lightweight fabric that offers the bride mobility and cooling effect, ideal to wear in countries with warmer weather conditions like Singapore.

Wedding Gown Silhouettes

1. Trumpet

A trumpet silhouette is the perfect dress for brides who want to flaunt their body curves. The design is body hugging at the waist before flaring out from below the hips, giving off a charming and elegant look.

2. A Line

Just like a spaghetti strap neckline, an A line silhouette gown is a universal design for all kinds of body types and necklines. The gown flares out from the waist, forming the shape of the letter A. If a body-hugging gown is not the one for you, perhaps this romantic-style dress would be a great alternative!

3. Mermaid

The mermaid silhouette might look similar to that of a trumpet’s, however there is a difference between the two. Unlike a trumpet gown which flares out from below the hip, a mermaid gown flares out from the knee like a mermaid tail. This silhouette accentuates well with the bride’s curves (from the bust to the hips), giving an alluring hourglass figure.
