6 exciting ways to add texture to your wedding day

One of the most exciting things about planning a wedding, is the opportunity to get creative with an array of opulent textures. With the ability to create dimension, emphasize delicate detailing and add an unexpected twist to your wedding day, here are 6 exciting ways to use texture.


Thanks to Kate Middleton, lace has remained a firm favourite for bridal gowns and shows no signs of leaving anytime soon. A classic fabric, while lace may have been the norm for wedding dresses for years, designers have adopted a more modern approach to reinterpret vintage fabrications. No longer just about lace, extra dimension and creativity is easily added through beading, floral appliques and laser-cut enhancements for a touch of romance. When vintage lace is combined with impeccable construction and a flawless finish, the result is a simply stunning wedding dress. Whether you opt for a fit and flare silhouette or dramatic ballgown, this terrific texture definitely deserves the spotlight.


Long renowned for its richness, velvet continues to win our hearts. The perfect way to add a little luxe, the options are endless when it comes to velvet. For attire, it’s all about the groomsmen’s suits and bridesmaid dresses. In winter, opt for darker colours such as burgundy and bottle green or for spring and summer weddings, keep it light thanks to pastel hues.  And of course, there’s the finishing touches. From wedding stationery tied lovingly with a little velvet bow, to table cloths and runners (our favourite, of course!), get creative and embrace velvet for your wedding.


Think crochet is just for doilies? Think again! At Magpie Linens, we’ve given crochet a modern makeover to take this texture into modern times. From shabby to chic, think table runners embellished with a touch of sparkle to add another dimension. We love these in pink, perfect for a wedding that longs to exude vintage vibes.


Nothing screams texture more than feathers and if you’re looking to add drama to your wedding day, do it with your dress. Chic feathers have the power to add pure glamour to your gown, not forgetting movement, as they catch a breeze, or while you take to the dance floor. Whether you opt for a feathered skirt, or create just a little drama thanks to the addition of a feather shrug, nothing nods to the roaring twenties quite like feathers.


Previously believed to have had their day, satin is back in a big way and we couldn’t be happier about it. This year, it’s all about big skirt and satin really delivers on this. Ballgowns lend themselves perfectly to this texture and we love the addition of extra textures. From embellished cap sleeves, to beaded belts, the romantic fabric is definitely stealing hearts.


Last but by no means least, brides’ glitter wishes are met thanks to the addition of sequins and sparkle. At Magpie Linens, we know just how amazing a touch of sparkle can look at your wedding reception. With the ability to really capture the light and add dazzle to your reception room, our sequin table cloths and runners are loved by brides looking to add glamour to their wedding.
