Choosing the wedding dress is a quintessential task where every bride has to pay attention to the details. Even a minor ignorance or miscalculation can ruin the dress. If you are like me, you will not want to take a chance. Just like your focus on wedding trends and styles, I suggest you analyze the fabric. Fabric of the wedding dress is very important. Obviously you can pick from different fabrics, from satin to lace and organza.
While I always keep an eye on current and popular trends of wedding dress, I also don’t compromise on choosing something that speaks my style and accentuates my shape. The wedding dress can be classic, cute, elegant and sexy. Next to color, where white is predominant, focus on fabrics. Fabrics play a pivotal role in holding and portraying how you look as a bride!
You know what! The wedding dress fabric you choose might accentuate and depict your mood on the big day. Check out the Tissura wedding dress fabric range here – they make some of the best fabrics for wedding dresses. You can choose from silk, lace, satin, chiffon, and others.
The Most Traditional Fabrics for Wedding Dresses
Fashion and wedding fashion goes through changes all the time. Some fabrics become popular, while others are less in demand. These days, for instance, we often like to experiment, and will thus sometimes pick something that may come as a surprise to many, but often, a dress made of the fabric can still look quite gorgeous. However, there are some wedding dress fabrics, which have always stayed popular. They are traditional, and yet, these fabrics look good on modern brides too. Such fabrics are lace, satin, silk, organza, chiffon, tulle, and charmeuse.
Silk Wedding Dresses
Silk is gooey fabric. Looks soft, rich and carries light texture. I love the rich colors that found in silk fabric. It essays the smooth richness. I feel wearing silk gives a well-draped feel. It luster like beautiful pearl and make you look sophisticated as well as classy. If you search for high-end appeal, choose silk as wedding dress fabric.
White silk dresses are popular. Since white is the traditional color of wedding dress, you can find pretty designs and styles which enhances the bride’s temperament. I suggest adding pearls or Swarovski crystals as embellishments in the neckline. You can show-off the skin and choose sexy backless design.
Lace Wedding Dresses
Lace is pretty much sexy and most feminine fabric. Adding lace to the bridal dress effortlessly adds the glam quotient.
Lace is very versatile and charming. It is easy to add intricate layers and tiers of silhouettes with lace. It is quite light and easy to carry. Lace makes a bride elegant as well as sexy. Backless detail along with intricate decoration gives a perfect appeal.
Adding lot of details to the back, makes the lace dress quite charming. I love the peek-a-book but sexy inspiration of a lace gown. The designer added layers of charm on the dress.
Although a lace wedding gown effortlessly enhances elegance, lace is part of most of the wedding styles, except a few. Adding lace to the corset and sleeves or gloves or to the skirt along with other light fabric elevates the glam quotient.
Satin Wedding Dresses
Satin is a different version of silk! Is it? Not really. Every girl dreams a perfect dream wedding. Satin highlights the charm of the gorgeous bride. Most brides prefer satin only during winter wedding. Satin is the coolest fabric, which keeps you warm as well as cold according to the season. It is royal, glossy, elegant and rich. The luster of the fabric sprays a velvety soft feel. Satin accentuates your body parts with right cuts and fittings. My ideal style of a satin wedding dress is strapless sexy gown.
Chiffon Wedding Dresses
Chiffon is quite often used with other fabrics like satin. Adding lace or satin to chiffon throws an amazingly sexy appeal. Chiffon is used to create the tiers of embellishments in the skirt. Rather than extravagant ball gown, you can add many layers and turn a princess on your big day.
Remember, you should always choose the fabric according to your comfort and most suited style. I love satin over silk, yet satin is not ideal to my physique.
Organza Wedding Dress
Many brides prefer organza over chiffon as it can hold the shape better as its structure is stiffer. A sheer fabric, organza is also transparent, lightweight, and comfortable to wear. The fabric is more structured, and can thus be a great for a warm weather wedding. It is a delicate fabric though, so you need to be careful about pulls and snags. However, it is because of this delicate structure that organza is a good choice for embellishments like wraps, veils, and skirts.
Tulle Wedding Dress
The fabric used to make those stunning ballerina tutus. Tulle is a net like fabric, composed of nylon and silk. Lace designs can also be incorporated. Tulle ball gowns come with dramatic volumes and offer an airy feeling. It looks very delicate, and can be the perfect choice if you want to show off your finer side on the wedding day. Tulle comes out very well in photographs as well. For weddings, tulle is often mixed with other fabrics.
Charmeuse Wedding Dress
This is another sheer and light fabric that has been traditionally used for making wedding gowns. It gives a silky and soft feeling and looks very glossy. Charmeuse will hug the curves, so it is used often for form-fitting dresses. Try another fabric if you prefer a looser fit. But if you can carry it, then Charmeuse will look very good on you.
Other Wedding Dress Fabrics
Dupioni, georgette, faille, crepe, brocade, and rayon are some other fabrics with which wedding dresses are made. But most brides opt for one of the traditional fabrics that I have mentioned above to create their wedding gowns.
