When you think of tiered skirts, you probably think of the over-the-top princess cake topper you had on your birthday cake when you turned 5, not a unique, beautiful, and even sexy wedding dress. Yes, they are perfect for ball gowns, but the modern bride can incorporate tiers into a gown’s skirt for so many different looks–dramatic, whimsical, or romantic.
Tiers can be added to Mermaid wedding dresses, A-line wedding dresses, and even high-low wedding dresses. Below are several tiered wedding dresses recently created by Anomalie.
1. Trimmed Tiers
Tiers trimmed with satin ribbon binding is the perfect addition to make your tiers really stand out.
2. Bellini Beauty
Our gorgeous bride used our Bellini Tulle Stackup in her Fit & Flare gown. She incorporated tiers at the bottom of her flare to add some movement to her skirt.
3. It’s All in the Hips
This beautiful bride created mini tiers at her natural waist around her hips to add a little voluminous flare!
4. Bold, Beautiful, Blush
Using our Blushing Bride Tulle Stackup, this dress came together beautifully with its V-neck neckline, beaded straps & voluminous tiers
5. A Boho Dream
Adding lace applique throughout the tiers of your skirt is a great way to add a little something extra to your skirt. These tiers are finished with horsehair giving it some added shape and movement.
6. All About the Horsehair
These horsehair trimmed tiers cascade beautifully down this brides skirt. She even added in bits and pieces of her star motif lace to really make it unique!
7. Simple & Chic
This simple yet chic design incorporates flowing tiers within this brides relaxed Aline silhouette. These tiers add a little something extra to a simply classic dress design.
How can I add texture to my tiered wedding dress?
At Anomalie, you can add a layer of sheet lace or lace appliqué throughout the tiers for a little more romance. You can also add a layer of sparkle tulle that will make your gown glisten! Additionally, you can add horsehair trim, which gives more definition, lift, and structure at the edge of each tier. Choose your base layer above and click “customize.” You can then refine the dress to be perfect for you and schedule a complimentary appointment with your Anomalie stylist to finalize.
What fabrics are generally used with tiered skirts?
Tulle or organza are the most common materials used for tiers, but to create a more modern look, you can use a structured fabric, like duchess satin or Mikado, or taffeta.
