Popular Wedding Dress Fabrics & Laces

There are many different fabrics that can be used to create the most beautiful wedding dresses in South Florida. The one that will be used for your bridal gown will depend on the look you are desiring. Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches has featured a few of the most popular wedding dress fabrics in our blog today.

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. 

Satin
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. 

Tulle
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
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. 

Lace 
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.  

Chantilly
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.


Alencon
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.  




Guipure

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. 


As we mentioned earlier, these are only a small sampling of the luxurious fabrics that you will have to choose from when you visit our bridal boutique in South Florida. If a particular one catches your eye, let us know when you arrive for your appointment. Our knowledgeable consultants are well-versed in the many different materials that make up a bridal gown You can trust them to help you find the one you are dreaming of when you shop at Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches

"If I could give 10 stars I would! I am the Maid of Honor for my friend's wedding and after having a horrid experience at (another bridal boutique) it was a relief to walk into a warm greeting and a beautiful environment. Davita was the most down to earth person ever and that's what sold me and the bride. The dresses OMG, BEAUTIFUL. She gave the bride the best experience ever. This is how every bride should feel looking for their dress. Do yourself a favor and go to Bridal Couture and let them set the standards on how dress shopping for your big day should be. I plann on getting my dress here too when I start looking. Thank you Davita for making my friend's dress shopping experience a memorable one ! You are blessed- Lu"
Lycerda J.,  Knot review


Shopping Tips
There are a few things to keep in mind when shopping for bridesmaid dresses. 
  • Narrow down the choices
    • It is sometimes difficult for many women to agree on a single dress. The bride and maid of honor can narrow down the choices before bringing the entire group along. 
  • Mix it up
    • Try on a few different styles/shapes of gowns to discover the one that looks best for everyone.
  • Shop early
    • You will need enough time before the wedding for the dresses to be ordered, and extra time for any alterations that may be needed. 
  • Have fun with it
    • This should be a fun day out with friends making memories to last a lifetime. No drama, no stress, just a wonderful time with people you love having in your life.

When you are ready to start shopping for your bridesmaid's dresses, begin your search at our South Florida bridal shop. Together, your wedding party along with Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches, will find the most wonderful gowns for your very special day.

Be Prepared For Anything With A Wedding Day Emergency Kit

We all hope that everything goes exactly as planned on the wedding day, but just in case something does happen to go wrong, having a wedding day emergency kit packed and ready can avoid letting that little mishap become a big problem. Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches has made a list of things that could come in handy. 


The list is separated into categories, but many of the items can do double-duty, covering a variety of tasks. For example, clear nail polish is great for a shiny manicure touch-up, but it can also help to stop a run in hosiery. Hair spray works for that too, as well as keeping your hair in place. 

Another example is the tape. It's a good thing to have on hand in case you need to fasten a wedding decoration, but it's also perfect for fixing the hem in a gentleman's pants when there is no time to sew. The more you toss into your kit, the more likely you will be ready for any possibility. Here are a few basics to definitely include:

Fashion Items

  • Mirror
  • Extra earring backs
  • Facial blotting papers: much better for shine than more powder
  • Stain removal pen or wipes
  • Baby powder & white chalk: to absorb stains on white dress 
  • White cotton towels or cloths: same as above
  • Safety pins
  • Small sewing kit
  • Lint brush
  • Static cling spray

Beauty Items

  • Hand lotion: apply right before walking down the aisle so the ring will slide on smoothly!
  • Moist towelettes
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Kleenex
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Clear nail polish
  • Nail polish that matches your manicure
  • Nail clippers & nail file
  • Bobby Pins/ hair ties
  • Cotton balls or cotton swabs
  • Drinking straws: using a straw will keep your lipstick from smearing
  • Dental floss/ toothpicks
  • Hair spray
  • Razors

First Aid Items

  • Band-aids
  • Basic medicines: pain relievers, allergy medicine, antacid...
  • Antiseptic wipes
  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Tweezers


Extras

  • Sun block
  • Bug spray
  • Gum & Mints
  • Tape: regular, double-sided, duct...
  • Super glue
  • Scissors
  • Lighter or matches
  • Snacks: if you don't eat something before the ceremony, you'll have a tough time making it all the way until dinner
  • Bottled water
  • Chargers & extra batteries
  • Pens & paper
  • Contacts list & wedding day timeline: have a few copies and make sure you best helpers know where to find this information


Being prepared for anything is the best way to avoid any disasters on your special day. It is very likely that you won't need the majority of the items in your kit, but you'll sure be glad that they are there if a seam busts or a camera battery dies. It will only take a little time to throw your wedding day emergency kit together, and it could be a day-saver. Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches wishes you a wonderful, stress-free wedding. You will look beautiful in your dress from our South Florida bridal boutique, and with this kit, you'll be ready for anything!
