Finding Your Fabric

Like a piece of art, creating the perfect wedding dress is a combination of so many amazing details and decisions. The neckline, back, silhouette, embellishments, the list goes on! The fabric of the dress is one feature that can totally transform it from one direction to another. Let’s break each one down to discover which fabric you fancy!

The Classic Stunner: Satin

A bridal favorite for decades, satin gives a smooth and shiny look, with a heavier texture. A perfect choice for winter brides or the minimalists out there. Often made of 100% silk, it’s elegant, substantial, and can flatter any figure!

The True Princess: Tulle

For the girl seeking her fairytale dress, tulle is hard to beat! As an open weave fabric, it works well with lace appliqués and beadwork. Another bonus, the versatile material means it can be ruched for structure or layered for a delicate effect. You can get volume for days with this fabric, and just know, there’s no such thing as too much tulle!

The Romantic: Lace

Possibly the fabric of all fabrics when it comes to wedding gowns, lace is an ultra-romantic choice! You might see it as the body of the dress, as an overlay, or even as an accent. From thin, light, and open, to a heavy solid background, lace is always traditional and gorgeous!
