Bridal Lace Appliqués: How to Choose and Sew Them onto the Fabric

Bridal lace appliqué, also sometimes called appliqué bridal lace, is a piece of openwork fabric that can be sewn to a net-like base such as tulle or mesh and follows a beautiful floral or botanical design theme which makes it perfect for bridal gowns and other accessories.

These appliqués provide great potential for creativity and can be used in countless ways as imagination is the only limit. Many appliqués also look great when combined with beads, sequins, rhinestones, or feathers.

Did you know you can use these appliqués not only for your bridal dress but also for shoes and handbags?

Whether you are looking for a bowtie appliqué, neckpiece patch, laser sequined floral appliqué, Venise angel flower piece, satin beaded flower motif, cute little butterfly appliqués, or appliqués for collars, you can find them all at Amore Lace and Fabrics.

How to Choose Bridal Lace Appliqués

Embroidered patches look absolutely adorable. They are perfect for adorning not only bridal gowns but also stylish and seductive casual wear and evening gowns.

When buying appliqués specifically for bridal dresses, you should look for white or ivory lace appliqués depending on the shade of your wedding gown. The type of lace appliqués will depend on the main material of your dress.

For instance, guipure lace appliqués look good on dense fabrics such as crepe and embellished lace fabric, Chantilly patches look great on sheer fabric such as tulle, and corded lace appliqués are ideal for both sheer fabrics like organza and tulle and opaque cloths such as crepe and satin.

Besides, 3D flower motifs make a dress look luxurious and more feminine and also complement the natural surroundings, especially if you are having an outdoor wedding.

Another thing to keep in mind is the design of your Venise lace. Lace appliqués and laces should complement each other too, instead of making each other look out of place.

How to Sew Bridal Lace Appliqués onto the Fabric

Depending on the size and type of lace, you will need to determine whether it is best to sew the appliqué by hand or by a sewing machine.

Though sewing by hand may seem to be time-consuming, this method gives you more control over the position of an appliqué and the tension of the thread. It is the best method for sewing embellished lace appliqués.

The sewing machine is ideal for those lace appliqués through which the needle can easily pass through and that don’t have embellishments. You can sew embroidered lace appliqués with a sewing machine.

In case you are finding it difficult to sew lace appliqués either way, then sticking them to the fabric by using fabric glue should do the trick.

Have you found the best bridal lace appliqués for your dream wedding gown? If not, don’t wait anymore and explore the stunning collection of appliqués, laces, and more at Amore Lace and Fabrics.
