There’s nothing classic about a fringe wedding dress, but that’s exactly why we love it — the uncommon detail ensures you stand out. Seriously, who can resist the swinging movement it creates and the edgy, earthy look it brings? Texture is a fun, playful way to elevate the style and design of a wedding dress, and fringe is rich in it. Whether adorning necklines, sleeves, or hemlines, fringe is becoming a favorite among boho chic and vintage-inspired brides. Just see how these beauties pulled it off.

Talk about a pair of statement sleeves! This bride is rocking bohemian chic in a Steve Nicks inspired Rue de Seine dress, complete with an ab-flaunting cut-out and long, sweeping sleeves of fringe for a rock’n’roll angel look.

Real bride Suze’s custom-made dress has as much history as it does beauty. Created by Lost in Paris Bridal, which restores and refashions fabrics on century-old machines for the eco-conscious bride, the gown was made from a 1920s silk piano shawl, resulting in vintage elegance. We love how the fringe hemline ties in with the macramé backdrop.

We’re swooning over Kelly’s crochet and fringe dress, the latter of which adorns the train and sleeves, extending to the back of the dress. A low, messy bun and natural makeup pull off this boho chic feel.

For the more subtle bride, delicate fringe tassels caressing the backline and skirt tier bring just a hint of the trend without being overwhelming. Combined with lace fabric, this dress from a&bé bridal is all indie and romantic.

This Rue de Seine dress marries vintage romance with wild toughness in a high-low style marked with floral embroidery and fringe. Silver embellishments add a touch of glam, while a moody bouquet and fishtail crown braid bring an edgy feel.

Rue de Seine doesn’t let us down again with the ultimate bohemian confection for this elopement. Tiers of fringe and fringe “shoulder pads” cascade down the dress, combining with bold leaf embroidery for an earthy vibe, giving the dress movement and life.

This beach goddess bride ordered her breezy gown boasting a whimsical lace design of medallions from Crystals & Crème, but can you believe it originally came without the fringe? Her close friend added it to the sleeves to achieve the boho look she was seeking.

This fashion stylist channeled 1930s elegance for her Brooklyn wedding day in a fringe-sleeved Alessandra Rich dress she found on Net-a-porter. She accessorized with a classic pair of white pumps and an embroidered veil from New York Vintage.
