What is Ruching on a Wedding Dress?
Ruching is a type of draping that involves gathering fabric along a pleated or folded seam. This technique creates a ripple-like or folded effect on the material.
It adds texture to any dress while still maintaining an overall sleek silhouette. This makes it ideal for brides who want to make a subtle statement with an eye-catching detail!
Plus, ruching can be used on almost any part of the dress, from necklines and sleeves to skirts and waistbands. This gives you plenty of options when creating your dream look.
Are Ruched Wedding Dresses Popular?
The trend of ruched wedding gowns started in the ‘80s and ‘90s. During this time, ruching became particularly popular on wedding dresses, with many gowns featuring heavily ruched bodices and skirts. Today, ruched wedding dresses remain a popular, timeless choice for brides who want to add texture and depth to their wedding dress.
Ruching can be used to create a variety of effects, from soft and romantic to modern and edgy. It can be combined with lace, beading, or embroidery to create a bridal look that matches the vision of your dream gown. The best part: Ruched wedding dresses are flattering and comfortable to wear.
