This Garment District bridal and theatrical fabric store is the place for moderately priced nuptial accessories. A large display nestled in the back corner of the cluttered shop houses a plethora of Swarovski crystal-encrusted tiaras, head pieces, and hair clips, while a wash of white veils hides in a nearby nook. These items can be made to order, with veils ranging from the simple to extravagant six-yard-long productions. Many frugal brides also send their dressmakers here for the large selection of designer-quality fabrics — flowing organza, iridescent chiffon, and delicate lace. Though Sposabella doesn’t make dresses, it can add embellishments like beading or embroidery to completed gowns. The shop also boasts a collection of house-brand cubic-zirconium drop earrings and a nice selection of multi-length satin gloves. Celebrities like Britney Spears, Whitney Houston, Céline Dion, and Vanessa Williams have all ordered bridal or performance embellishments from Sposabella, so if you’re looking to really make an entrance at your wedding, this place will guarantee you sparkle all the way to the back row.Veils
