Delicate Frills

Bridal frills is the most feminine wedding dress detail.

Frills on wedding dresses started in the 1800's in the Victorian years, when Victorian fashion started.

Frills on a wedding dress doesn't just have to be on the skirt. Nowadays the new fashion started with frills on the bodice of the wedding dress, and it is gorgeous!

Frills expresses that feminine look, it is fine and dainty.

In the early 1900's clothing included a lot of decorations, such as lace or frills. This was also adopted in wedding dresses, where decorative frills and lace was common. For example, in the 1920's, they were typically short in the front with a longer train in the back and were worn with cloche-style wedding veils.

Definition of frills - a strip of gathered or pleated material sewn on to a garment or larger piece of material as a decorative edging or ornament.

Frills on the skirt of wedding dresses is no longer that big in fashion. However, the frills on skirts is now longer finished off with satin edging or horsehair material.

It is used more delicately today.

Frills will always be an old time favorite! We love the dainty look and uniqueness of using it on the bodice!
