A designer puts a lot of thought into the fabric that they will use on one of their creations. Each one lays differently and exudes distinctive feelings from the person wearing it and the people viewing it. The fabrics below are only a few of many, but you are very likely to run across these in particular ones when you begin wedding dress shopping.
Possibly the most often used due to its extreme versatility, durability, and style, this fabric has a smooth, somewhat shiny finish and lots of body. It works beautifully for creating gowns that are ruched, draped, or structured in any way. It is a heavier fabric, perfect for weddings in cooler temperatures, but equally wonderful for those in warmer settings.
This fabric is a sheer netting which can be made of silk, nylon, or rayon. Tulle is the fabric that tutus are made of, and for wedding dresses it is generally used to make full, bouncy skirts and for veils.
Organza is sheer and lightweight, which makes it a nice choice for summer weddings. It is stiffer than chiffon, much like tulle is, yet still light and ethereal to wear. You will see this often used for skirts, sleeves, backs, and overlays.
Wedding dress overlays are usually made with some variety of lace, and there is a wide variety of those. Below are three of our favorites that are very popular for elegant bridal gowns.
This detailed type of lace is named for its origin city, Chantilly, France. Delicate flowers and dainty ribbons give it a very light, romantic, and sometimes vintage look.
This is another French style lace that was used as early as the 16th century. The bold motifs have a distinct floral pattern, along with the appearance of a 3-D effect.
Bold, interwoven patterns make up Guipure lace, looking a lot like macrame or a type of embroidery. A bride can make a very dramatic statement in a gown with this detail. It is a little heavier than other laces, and works best on gowns with a structured shape.
