Wacky Weddings - A VERY Special Wedding Gown!

A bespoke wedding gown can have lots of unique features - but how about a specially shortened hem so you can go SNOWBOARDING while wearing it? That’s just what one bride did in a wild and crazy winter wedding before posting a video of herself and her new husband on YouTube in which they hit the slopes together in full wedding outfits to celebrate their marriage.

Maria Reiland met husband Bob when they were teenagers and they fell in love with snowboarding at the same time as with each other. Maria knew the exact location she wanted to marry in when she visited it on a skiing trip at age 16 and, eleven years later, finally fulfilled her dream at a New York ski resort.

Bob and Maria, both from Cleveland, OH, are completely crazy for snowboarding and even have matching tattoos celebrating their love of the sport. They, along with 35 equally crazy guests, headed downhill straight after the ceremony and Maria said afterwards: “Snowboarding in a dress is not as hard as you would think. When you snowboard both feet are strapped in and you just turn by bending your knees.”

Though it might not be to everyone’s taste, both Bob and Maria had the best day of their lives together. Maria said: “Everyone had a blast, it was one of those weddings where the dance floor was filled all night long...me and Bob looked at each other and agreed that it couldn't have gone any more perfect”.

If you have been wondering exactly which lace is right for you then wonder no longer! Simply choose the favourite two materials on your shortlist and order your free samples today. For a small charge, extra samples of our bridal lace and fabric can be sent - please click here for more details.

Unlike many bridal fabric suppliers, Wedding Dress Fabrics are happy to supply samples of two of your absolute favorite fabrics, absolutely free! For our bridal couture designer customers, we also produce a stunning range of sample books so that your clients can find their ideal wedding dress material in the comfort of your design studio.

Samples of bridal lace and material are sent out as a rectangular swatch which is clearly labelled and referenced for quick, reliable identification. There is nothing quite like the ‘hands-on’ experience, particularly when purchasing fabric, to ensure that you have chosen exactly the right product that will make you look and feel divine on your most special day.

Our most popular Sample Book is the Premium, which contains our widest range of bridal fabrics and lace. A thick, imposing piece of work, this book contains detailed information and swatches of most of the fabrics we have in stock and, dependent on meeting minimum spend thresholds, will be updated twice each year with the latest additions to our ever-growing collection. Groom fabric sample books are also available.

Many of our products, such as crystal motifs and lace appliqués, are sold as single pieces and are not available to receive as samples. Instead, Wedding Dress Fabrics are happy to accept returns of these items within a fortnight of dispatch.

White Lace - The Color to be Seen In

White lace is just EVERYWHERE at the moment and we can’t get enough of it! Celebrities have been stepping out in some truly stunning white bridal lace fabric creations and here are some of our favorites at Wedding Dress Fabrics.

Dascha’s White Lace Dress

Dascha Polanco, star of Orange is the New Black, stole the show at the Screen Actors Guild Awards recently as she wore a figure hugging white lace dress designed by Michael Costello. Stylish and sophisticated, the dress is from Costello’s latest collection and features a dramatically-high neck, trendy back cutout and long, flowing train. Dascha loves the way the dress makes her look and complimented Costello, saying that he is “one of the few designers that celebrates curves and doesn’t want to straighten them out.”

Ashley’s White Lace Jumpsuit

At a recent launch party for the Nine Zero One Salon in L.A., High School Musical starlet Ashley Tisdale wowed the crowd in a seriously wild white lace jumpsuit designed by Monique Lhuillier. Reportedly costing almost $2,000, the strapless creation was teamed with shoes by Givenchy and a cute black clutch by Prada. Letting her clothes do the talking, Ashley wore just a little makeup and still looked perfect.

Kylie’s White Lace Jacket & Dress

In a bold yet definitely successful move, Kylie Minogue teamed a white lace dress with a matching jacket for an interview in London, England. Arriving at the Chiltern Firehouse after filming a live set, Kylie waved to photographers, showing off large, striking black buttons on the jacket and exquisite sheer detailing to the hem of the dress.
