A Bridal Bib

Ever heard of a Bridal bib? No, neither had we, but apparently they are right up there in requests that are coming from blushing brides.

So, what do they do?

The idea of a bridal bib is to cover up the brides dress while she eats, it stops any spillages dropping on to the dress and therefore no stains!

So when our good friend asked if we would design her something to that effect it was a first for us. We had a look around at possible ideas and got to work on making something beautiful and unique, just like the stunning bride-to-be.

We decided to make it in an apron format, to give the greatest coverage for the dress. We wanted it to be practical yet beautiful, so while the beautiful dress is covered the bride still looked and felt amazing.

We widened the top edge to fit in with the style of the dress, which was an off the shoulder design, meaning that a large portion of the top of the dress was covered.

We didn’t want the bib/apron to detract too much from the dress underneath, and we also didn’t want it to appear to ‘busy’. We chose simple detailing using colours from the theme of the wedding – Lilac & Sage.

Here is some further detailing on the bottom of the bib/apron.

In the bottom corner we stitched a small cross stitch to personalise it. It says the names of the bride and groom and then the date of the wedding.

This is how it is to be tied at the back.

    What a wonderful idea, I wish I had thought about this before I got married – I was terrified of spilling all through the meal!

    The apron is absolutely stunning, I love the elegant look, the detailing and the names and date, what beautiful touches.

    You guys really have an eye for the detail 🙂
