Alexandra Wedding Lace - The Bestselling Beauty
Alexandra wedding lace has, since its introduction to Platinum Bridal Fabrics, been one of our bestsellers. The gorgeous fabric is available in the whole spectrum of colours and its exquisite design has even made it on to the red carpet: TV presenter and model Lisa Snowdon wore a gorgeous Bespoke Dress, designed by The State of Grace at the Elle Style Awards, that used our Alexandra black lace .
Platinum Bridal Fabrics were excited to receive pictures of a sublime wedding gown created by Marianne Laker Designs. Christine, the lucky bride, spent many happy hours deciding on the right fabric for her dress and finally settled on Alexandra ivory lace, entrusting the precious fabric to Marianne. As a skilled creator of a range of garments from jackets and wedding dresses to hats and scarves, Marianna lovingly crafted the bridal dress to Christine’s exact specifications. To document the process of creating her dream wedding dress, Christine made a fascinating video that can be seen by visiting our YouTube channel.

Alexandra lace is a glamorous choice, its fine tulle ground featuring heavy cording and beading to produce a truly enticing border lace with striking floral motifs. Each of the flowers has been dramatically embellished with delicate sequins, a choice selection of pretty beads and several light-refracting diamantes. The design of this gorgeous wedding dress material is asymmetric; the narrow edge of the border has a softly-undulating depth of 6cm while the opposite side has an astonishing 40cm depth.
To complement Alexandra wedding lace, Platinum Bridal Fabrics also supply matching lace trim and appliqué. The lace trim adds the perfect finishing touch to the final wedding gown while the appliqués, with their swirling leaves and bold flowers, are designed to create a sense of glittering luxury.
