However, when you look at the kind of detailed embroidery on wedding dresses, then you will find that the work is spread over a larger area. In some cases, the bodice of the dress has a concentration of the embroidery and this is made even more special with the addition of seed pearls, beads, and bits of crystal. Some brides have a lighter version of this detailed embroidery running through the skirt of their wedding dress. For some brides the preference for such detailed embroidery is more at the neckline making any jewelry extraneous.
In some detailed embroidery work, the effect is made to look even more classic by ensuring that the embroidery is done in the same color as the cloth on which it is done like using white thread on white cloth. In some cases, the detailed embroidery is done in contrasting colors that makes the embroidery stand out even more. When costs are not a big factor, some women prefer to have their embroidery done in gold or silver threads on the fabrics of their choice.
Even within detailed embroidery, you will find that the kind that is done by hand carries more value and looks more charming than the kind of embroidery that is done by machines.

However, no matter whether the embroidery is in the same color as the fabric or in contrasting colors or done using silver or gold or embellished with pearls and crystals, it always look classic. That is why many people opt for outfits that have detailed embroidery on them even though these are relatively difficult to maintain.
