Finding beautiful ribbon for your wedding sounds quite simple, but in reality, it may be a little more difficult than you would expect. It seems as though you should just be able to run to the nearest craft store and come out with yards of stunning ribbon, but you may be a little disappointed in the selection you find. Luckily, we’re here to help you source all types of ribbon!
For hand-dyed ribbons:
-Froufrou Chic ribbons are made from natural silk fabric which is hand-dyed in France in an exclusive collection of colors. Each spool is teared by hand and the edges are frayed to create a feathery texture which is soft and subtle, resulting in a delicate and soft drape.
-Silk & Willow ribbons are “Inspired and Infused by Nature”. The colors created by plants are subtle and complex. Each ribbon is uniquely dyed, so your ribbon will be one of a kind. In addition to the natural dyed silk, Silk & Willow offers recycled Sari ribbon that is made from remnants of silk and dyed naturally as well.
-May Arts has a huge selection of silk, velvet, and almost any other fabric you could dream of!
-At M & J Trimming, you can find a large selection of ribbons in addition to specialty trims that will add a little flair to whatever project you’re working on!
Vintage and Antique Ribbon:
-Etsy is a fantastic resource if you’re looking for a special, one-of-a-kind type of ribbon.
-Ebay has a lot of dealers who have collected antique ribbons as well!
-Michaels, Joann, Hobby Lobby, or Hancock Fabrics are great resources for basic ribbons like grosgrain and even some lace trims that may make a great additions to your floral creations or wedding crafts.
