Remember how much you hated wearing flower girl outfits as a kid? Use strategically placed ribbons, sashes, and bows on your wedding dress, gloves, and veil to tone down the overly-accessorized style. A colorful ribbon or belt placed around your dress’s waist can be a fun way to add color.
# 03 Beading:
Perhaps the most prevalent appliqué method is beading. You can accessorize with freshwater pearls, glass beads, real rhinestones, and semi-precious gems. A fashionable neckline or hemline can be enhanced with the correct beading. Beading can also be used to add a little glitz to your gown.

This is the result of exquisite, frequently laborious stitching that creates curls, floral motifs, and swirls on the wedding gown using a mesh of multi-colored threads. Embroidery and beading can be combined to create complicated motifs on your gown’s fabric.
Using pastel hues for your gown’s embroidery for a softer, more feminine look is another fantastic option to add color to a white bridal gown.
