Even if you have a specific style of wedding gown in mind, you will be shocked when you notice how much of a difference the fabric can make. Winter weddings are all about heavier fabrics like satin and velvet, but for spring wedding gowns lighter fabrics not only look more stylish but feel more comfortable over what will inevitably be a long day.
It’s still important to keep in mind that certain materials work better with particular designs, so let’s look at some of the best ones for a spring gown!
Captivating In Chiffon
Chiffon wedding gowns have a beautiful, ethereal quality to them you just can’t go past in many designs. They are well suited for floor-length, trumpet and train styles, as the material drapes beautifully at the bottom of the dress, giving a soft, flowing look to the gown.
It is a versatile material, often used in A-line, trumpet, and empire designs and numerous bodice styles suit these, making them a suitable choice for a variety of figures.
Tantalizing In Tulle
For many brides that have dreamed of their wedding since they were a little girls tulle wedding dresses are often what their heart truly desires. This fabric is used in many different gown designs, but the most commonly known is the ball gown style – often thought of as the fairy-tale princess look.
Tulle is often combined with a lace bodice in various cuts such as V-neck, off the shoulder, sweetheart, halter, and scoop neck. It is a forgiving fabric as it does not cling to the body in the same way silk or chiffon often does, making it an ideal choice for brides that are not comfortable with overly revealing designs.
Luscious In Lace
Lace is probably the most commonly used material when it comes to wedding gowns, as well as a popular choice for flower girl dresses. As it is see-through, it is usually overlaid on other fabrics to provide beautiful embellishment to what might otherwise look quite plain.
One of the best qualities of lace is its ability to complement the dresses chosen for the bridal party. If you want a lace bridal gown, try and avoid bridesmaid dresses with lace overlays, as they might clash with the gown. On the other hand, lace flower girl dresses are excellent, however, as they compliment your dress rather than draw attention from it.
Oh-la-la In Organza
Organza wedding dresses are definitely for brides that are looking to make a bit of an entrance and love having a wow factor! Organza is suitable for just about any wedding gown design and is most often used for styles that overlay this material to create unique shapes.
If you were thinking of a ball gown style but wanted to add more structure to the skirt area, organza is the perfect material to use. Compared to tulle, it gives a softer look and also works really well for ruched bodice designs, looking particularly stunning with sweetheart necklines.
