7 Ways to Style Wedding Dress Appliques

Option 1: Keep it Traditional
If you like vintage lace, but want to update the look, try the world of lace appliques. The majority of the dress can be constructed of more modern materials, but the final look will still include the traditional vibe you love.

Option 2: Keep it Colorful
Colorful wedding dress appliques are a great option for brides-to-be who want to explore their options outside of the expected white pallette. This dress by Zuhair Murad is a perfect example of blending the customary and the unexpected, resulting in the best of both worlds.

Optional 3: Keep it Eclectic
It never hurts to mix it up a bit. If you find the right combination, the look of mismatched appliques will look much more fashion-forward than confusing.

Option 4: Keep it Minimal
It’s true what they say- sometimes less really is more. This Vera Wang design illustrates how just a little applique detailing can make a huge difference.

Option 5: Keep it Structured
Appliques don’t always have to be frilly and floral. Jenny Packham utilized these appliques to create a very structured appearance. The contrast of the hardware-like appliques with the flowing bottom portion of the dress in turn constructs a Grecian gooddess effect.
