The Brides' Wedding Dress Fabrics Guide

Here at OuterInner.com we've discussed finding the right wedding gown style before, but the fabric that you choose is in some ways just as important, so we put together this wedding dress fabrics guide to help! Every bride is different, as are the fabrics, so you need to have an idea if you'd rather go for a wedding dress that's rich and luxurious like silk, or light and floaty like chiffon! Different fabrics suit different wedding themes, tastes, and seasons too, so we'll take a look at these issues. For instance, destination wedding gowns for summer weddings wouldn't be suited to thicker fabrics! Let's look at the different fabric options and a wedding dress example for each:

Wedding Dress Fabrics Guide

1. Satin

Satin has rich, luxurious, and glossy looks. It's a slightly heavier fabric, but its rich gloss make it ideal for slinky and traditional wedding dress styles. Most wedding dresses feature at least some satin, even if it's just in the underskirt, becuase satin is naturally easy to slip in and out of and so is easy to wear.

Who can resist lace wedding dresses? Beloved of celebrities, royalty, and so many of today's brides, this is one fabric trend that's going nowhere! Lace is a light fabric that's great as a 'main event' or as a decorative layer over other fabrics. Lace has got to be my favorite from this wedding dress fabrics guide!

One of the lightest, 'floatiest' fabrics, chiffon's strength comes in that it is a very forgiving and slimming fabric. Because it doesn't hug, and is naturally quite light-weight, it will help curvy girls look a little slimmer and drapes over curves rather than hugging them. It's light, so think destination wedding gowns and Summer weddings!

Straps A-line Sheath Wedding Dress

Style Code: 08876 $229

Chiffon Straps A-line Sheath Wedding Dress Style Code: 08876 $2294. Taffeta

A crisp, heavy, and striking fabric, taffeta looks great on bigger wedding dress styles, such as ball gowns. This is because the naturally rigid fabric gives any ruffles and decoration a lot of volume. It's versatile for any season, as despite being a heavier fabric, it's quite breathable due to it being constructed with many tiny holes.

Square Neckline Pick-up Skirt Wedding Gown

Style Code: 09571 $289

Another really light fabric that's at its best creating a light, floaty overlay to add volume to skirts. Look for this fabric if you need a skirt to create a BIG entrance! Layers of organza always have a fairytale wedding quality!

Strapless Sheath Organza Wedding Gown With Ruffles

Style Code: 05030 $299

Strapless Sheath Organza Wedding Gown With Ruffles Style Code: 05030 $2996. Silk-like Satin

Wear silk-like satin if you want the looks of silk, but without its price-tag! This special satin is even finer and glossier than its regular cousin, and truly looks very similar to silk itself! It's light and nice for outdoor weddings! This fabric is probably the best-kept secret of this wedding dress fabrics guide. Most people just wouldn't be able to tell it apart from real silk!
