Different Fabulous Fabrics

The key to selecting a fabulous wedding dress is in the fabric. Bridal gowns come in a wide variety of materials.

The most common types of fabrics used are: Polyester satin, silk taffeta, crepe, organza, tulle, lace, and silk. Bridal silk and tulle are generally two of the more expensive fabrics. The most pmost widely used bridal fabric is satin, which is made out of either nylon or polyester. It is mass produced in China and Indian at little cost. It is then purchased in huge quanties by mid-range pricing bridal design houses such as Mori Lee or Alfred Angelo. Where they then mass produce a particular design in a multitude of sizes to sell for under a $1000 dollar price point.

It is important to consider this though, since satin is a synthetic material, it does not breathe well and can be very hot in the humid summers of the Midwest and Southern states. It is also the heaviest fabric out of the rest of the bridal fabrics, and works really well for cold winter weddings. A flowing satin gown makes for a real show stopper, and is the perfect tradition for your Christmas wedding. Most winter brides are usually happy with the heaviness of satin, since it is by far the warmest fabric of them all as well.

It is important to think about the fabric you want your gown to be made from. It is also important to think about how the fabric will play into the style and theme of your wedding. For a garden wedding, you might want to choose a gown made out of tulle and lace. For a summer afternoon wedding, silk would be an excellent choice for your big day. When you first begin planning your affair; this is usually the right time to start thinking about, whether or not you may purchase a stock wedding gown, special ordering one, or even having it custom-made.

Most special-ordered bridal gowns take up to twelve weeks for delivery. Having your bridal gown custom-made, has been known to take even longer. It is important that you consider the fabric selection prior to having a dress handmade. If you are thinking about choosing a color other than white, it is never to early to start looking for the right bridal gown. Having a good idea of what the bridal gown fabric is, only helps to speed up this process. For most handmade dresses, I usually recommend taffeta, silk or satin fabrics to choose from. Fabrics such as crepe and organza are easy to snag, which makes them an easy cop-out if the tailor makes a mistake.

Silk and hand-spun silk taffeta, happen to be my two personal favorites out of all the bridal fabrics featured in this article. Nevertheless, many brides do not care for the rustling sound, taffeta makes when you walk around and move about. I personally love it. It is the one true sound of quality and elegance, only a fabric like taffeta can make. It is the preferred material for the upper elite and royal weddings. It is legendary.
