Mother of the Bride Chooses Luscious Lilac Lace

We absolutely love receiving photographs of Wedding Dress Fabrics customers wearing gorgeous garments created using our quality range of wedding dress material. It is not only the bride who can use these wonderful fabrics to create a splash - here we share with you a story of one of our customers who, as the mother of the bride, decided to use our fabrics to design and stitch an absolutely stunning dress.

Judy Hoke, who lives in Bethlehem, PA, has an eye for indi­vidu­ality and, after scouring the shops and the internet for the absolute perfect garment to wear to her daughter’s summer wedding, just couldn’t seem to find the ‘right’ dress. The fruitless and frustrating search ended when Judy realised that the only way she was going to get exactly what she envisioned was to make it herself!

After designing the dress, Judy’s search now switched to fabric suppliers. It quickly became clear to her that Wedding Dress Fabrics was the place to be when it comes to the widest selection and the highest quality and so she began creating a shortlist of her very favorite examples of bridal lace and embellished fabric.

After much agonised delibe­ration, Judy finally settled on Alexandra bridal lace which, as well as meeting all of her discerning requ­ire­ments, also had the same name as her daughter. “I knew that it was meant to be!”, said Judy! Out of the rainbow palette of color options available in this design, Judy chose Lilac to create a truly stunning and dreamy dress.

Alexandra is a divine border lace that features an array of classic beads and sequins surrounding delicate floral motifs. The borders are riotously asymmetrical and contain beautiful diamantés to create an embellished fabric that goes beyond beautiful. With her stylish eye firmly on perfection, Judy cleverly used left over bits of the bridal lace fabric to add delightful finishing touches to both her shoes and handbag.

“Everyone commented on what a beautiful dress it was, and that the fabric was just gorgeous.  I’m so glad I found just the perfect lace fabric at bridal­fabrics.­com” said Judy in her lovely email to us. Thanks Judy!
