A Guide to Bridesmaid Dress Fabrics

By Jone King

If you are like most brides, you probably spend a lot of time online looking at bridesmaid dresses. There is a dizzying array of choices, and it can be overwhelming to sort it all out, especially when you are not seeing the dresses in person. One thing that can really help to make sense of it all is a good understanding of what the descriptions mean. This is a guide to help you learn about all of the different bridesmaid dress fabrics; before you know it you will be an expert!

A sensational dress in any color, this ball gown will be an incredible choice in fresh and modern kelly green. Rich satin fabric combined with a ruched bodice and simple strapless neckline makes this dress an instant hit. Soft and appealing kelly Warhammer 40,000 CD Keygreen tones should be paired with rose or candy pink colors for a striking complementary package. Rose-colored jewelry and pink lily bouquets will contrast nicely with this green dress, bringing together a ravishing ensemble that will turn heads all the way down the aisle.

Brighten up your bridal party with this satin halter top and matching skirt in glowing orange tones. The pleated bodice and halter neckline will flatter a variety of body types along with the long A-line skirt that creates a bold silhouette. This rich orange will stand out against royal or cornflower blue that you could use in draped tulle decorations or centerpieces consisting of blue irises or wildflowers. And don't forget to accessorize-blue satin clutches, organza wraps, or floral combs will help complete this striking look.

Chiffon is another fabric that is widely used for bridesmaid dresses. Like satin, it can be made from silk or a synthetic fabric like polyester. Chiffon is sheer and flowing, making it ideal for a summertime or beach wedding. Due to its sheerness, chiffon is always layered over another fabric. When softly gathered, it can be used to create glamorous Grecian goddess style dresses that are fairly forgiving for different shapes and sizes.

Try to be as practical as you can. Pick dresses that might be useful in many occasions. Don't forget that it is only your wedding gown that is used probably for this day only. Your bridesmaids under no circumstances should wear dresses suitable exclusively for this particular event. After all, purchasing such a dress is in most cases expensive and nobody would like to spend their money for nothing.
