One of the most common uses for pearls is for wedding attire and décor. Whether a formal, traditional wedding or a more informal one, pearls add the extra, exquisite touch. There are many different uses for pearls in wedding attire and décor. The designs found at Pearlsonly.com.au can be used individually or in combination with other wedding designs. Some of the different designs that use pearls are:
- Bridal Tiara
- Bridesmaids and Mother of the Bride
- Decorative Accents
Gowns are decorated with seed pearls sewn into varying designs, on the skirt, the yoke, or the sleeves, or on all three. Sometimes the yoke is decorated with larger pearls in a specific design. Adding a single strand pearl necklace gives a classical look to the gown.
Pearls are sewn on the edge of the veil, and often in special designs on the body of the veil. Sometimes, a plain veil is adorned and held on with a pearl tiara. This gives a regal look to the overall look. Again, a pearl necklace added to the look adds to the regal look.
Satin wedding shoes adorned with pearls in a design give an added elegance to the look. These pearls may be either seed pearls or larger pearls, depending on the look desired.
The bridal tiara serves as a design statement as well as a means to attach the veil securely. Sometimes it is made entirely of pearls, and other times pearls adorn a tiara made of other materials.
The bride’s bouquet is almost as visible as the gown. Though colorful and decorative in their own right, their look is enhanced by the addition of pearls to their design.
Bridesmaids and Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom
Adding pearls to the bridesmaid’s attire, either as decoration or with jewelry, gives a special look to the wedding party. The mother of the bride and the mother of the groom may well desire a more traditional, classical look. Pearls will give them that look.
The subtle addition of pearl accents in the wedding décor also gives a special look and statement. Candles and candlesticks can be decorated, as can the ring pillow, pew markers, floral arrangements, and other decorative items. Adding pearl accents give a formal, regal look to the whole atmosphere.
