The best part about wedding dress shopping is discovering all the different fabrics and textures designers use. Various textures, fabrics, and styles are available, including satin, silk, lace, and tulle. Your wedding gown's fabric determines its silhouette, formality, and cost. Think about what you want to feel like on your wedding day - would something more intricate appeal to you or are you more interested in a smooth fabric? You'll love today's post if you like something less traditional! This week we're featuring some of our favorite non-traditional textures and gowns!
Light and plain, organza is a great summer fabric. They're transparent and pretty flimsy because they're woven in a low density. Thanks to its transparency and breathability, organza fabric is commonly used to make garments that overlay thicker kinds of clothing. There's no way you can wash organza fabric in the washer because it's so delicate. We recommend you dry clean organza wedding gowns - this type of fabric has to be hand washed! There's nothing more modern fairytale than an organza gown!

Underwear that supports your curves flawlessly makes crepe gowns the perfect choice for flattering your curves!
3D Schiffli Lace
The name 'schiffli' comes from a Swiss dialect of German and refers to exquisite lace made with a shuttle that looks like a boat's hull. Schiffli embroidery is done on chemically soaked fabric, so it offers a variety of luxurious patterns with a three-dimensional effect! You can see this in this fit and flare gown below with three-dimensional Schiffli lace applique. It's so striking!
Unlike mesh or net, guipure lace is connected by bars or plaits instead of meshes or nets. A thicker thread was used to outline patterns when they were close together.
