Silk, scraps and satin

All our La Novia dresses are made in Edinburgh at our very own dressmaking studios. Our beautiful fabrics are sourced from around the world to make your wedding dress as luxurious as it should be.

But what to do with the gorgeous scraps of silk and lace we have to trim in order to fit you to perfection? Here at La Novia we have put our thinking caps on and have come up with some wonderful suggestions to put some of your excess wedding fabric to good use!

Flowers
Use your little fabric off cuts to tie up the bouquets, whether there is only enough for you or for all your bridesmaids it will look even more gorgeous when the bouquet is dried!

Table decorations/seating plan
Why not adorn your seating plan or table decorations with some of your fancy lace? If it doesn’t fit into your colour scheme you could even get it dyed!

Favours
If you have any tulle from your veil left over why not make a gorgeous and sentimental present for the bridesmaids. Get the leftovers sewn into little bags and makeup lavender bags for there underwear drawers – a very ‘make do and mend’ approach to wedding gifts!

Invitation
If you have got quite a bit of fabric left or just love your trim and want to buy some more why not give your wedding guests a sneaky peak. Tie or stick some lace or Tulle around your invitations to whet their appetite for the big day.

Headdress
La Novia are experts when it comes to artistic flair so if you fancy something a wee bit different leave it to Liliana and she will come up with a fantastic head piece! The girls can incorporate parts of your dress to make sure you are dressed from head to toe in haute couture style!

Garters
For something a little more saucy our dressmaking studio can use the tiniest of fabric scraps to make you your very own bespoke garter. He may not notice it matches your wedding dress – but you will!

La Novia has successfully moved; transporting hundreds of wedding dresses and countless tiaras and veils safely across the centre of Edinburgh. Our Queen Street store is now open and so far it has been a huge hit with our clients. With a working fireplace for cosy winter fittings and bespoke chandeliers – La Novia could be the chicest store in Edinburgh.
