Guide to Most Common Wedding Dress Fabrics

We all know that wedding gowns today may be made from a variety of fabrics, so allow us to guide you through all the alternatives available to you when selecting your dream wedding dress.

One specific material, Satin, has been linked to bridal dresses since the beginning of time.

Although Satin is currently, as it has always been, at the height of its popularity, many people have hazy views about what Satin actually is. A  finish is frequently misidentified for the fiber itself. Satin can be made out of polyester, silk, or even a combination of the two, making it both synthetic and natural.

Lace is a material that is equally as ''classic'' as Satin. You might have always dreamed of wearing a lace wedding dress at your wedding, just because your great grandmother, as well as every other lady in every single generation of your family has worn a wedding gown made out of lace.  Lace is undoubtedly here to stay because of the beauty, grace, and elegance it brings to the look of the stunning bride. You have a wide range of alternatives and styles to pick from when it comes to lace, such as the delicate Lace Chantilly or the stiffer Macramé lace, popular choice for Boho styled weddings, just to mention a few.

Same as with Satin, Silk is a fabric which is absolutely crucial to the wedding fashion industry. Silk is a lovely fabric with many uses that may be woven into other materials like Satin, Charmeuse, Organza, and Chiffon.

Then there is a group of fabrics that are prized for their lightness and moderate sheerness. Chiffon serves as the foundational element in this group.

Organza is another fabric with characteristics comparable to Chiffon, but unlike Chiffon, it has a sturdier net, but is just as lightweight and sheer as Chiffon, but it keeps its shape far better.

The last fabric in this group, but by no means the least popular (on contrary!) is Tulle. The two materials listed above and tulle are quite similar, however, Tulle has a finer net and does not wrinkle as easily as Chiffon. Without having to wear any additional petticoats, you can achieve the majestic puffy princess effect by layering tulle under the skirt portion of the dress!

You've certainly heard of a fabric called Charmeuse, but you might not know what it is. This fabric drapes quite easily due to its glossy sheen. It can be fashioned from silk or synthetic fibers, but regardless of the material, it gives the garment a highly expensive appearance. It is without a doubt noteworthy, because it is a popular fabric used on bridal gowns, despite the fact that many designers haven't used it much this season.
