A Guide to Bows on a Wedding Dress
Browsing sample wedding dresses opens the door to fashion possibilities you might not have thought about, such as bows! These embellishments are a timeless and versatile element that can add a touch of elegance, femininity, and even playfulness to your bridal look. But, how can you wear them without looking too Bo Peep?
Whether you're dreaming of a classic, romantic, or modern look, here are our favorite ways to wear bows on a wedding dress.
Rock a Bow-Adorned Bodice
It doesn’t get more romantic than a big bow sewn into the bodice of your wedding dress. A delicate bow at the neckline or waist can create a charming focal point and accentuate your figure.
For a bit more of a dramatic, sultry touch, wear a large bow at the base of your back, drawing attention to the deep plunge of a low-back dress.
Bow Shoulder Accents for a Unique Look
If you’re going for a whimsical and youthful look, wearing dainty bows on the shoulders of your wedding gown is an easy way to achieve a fairytale look without going overboard.
If you have straps, tie them into bows, which allows you to easily adjust the fit of your bodice- making bows versatile and not just a pretty accessory.
Waist Cinching Bow Belt
Another way bows can be used functionally is to help cinch the waist. It not only defines your silhouette but also adds a touch of vintage charm if that’s the look you’re going for. This option works beautifully with A-line or ballgown-style dresses.
Show Off a Cascading Bow Train
Turns heads as you walk down the aisle with a cascading bow train. This option is perfect for brides who want a blend of traditional and contemporary styles. The bows can gradually decrease in size as they trail down the train.
Feminine Bow Embellished Veil
Extend the bow theme to your veil. Opt for a veil with bow accents or attach a bow at the comb. An oversized or trailing silk or chiffon bow gives you a simplistic veil that doesn’t cover your face but can be the perfect accessory if you plan to wear your hair down.
It’s also very pretty for wearing your hair half-up, showing off your face and make-up by pulling your hair back with a feminine bow.
What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
