What's your dress fabric?

What is the fabric of your wedding dress? Did you go with something textured like lace, chiffon, tulle, faille, and organza? Or did you go sleek with fabrics such as crepe, satin/sateen, silk, mikado, and taffeta? Did your dream dress lead your fabric decision, or did you have a preferred material in mind when you started shopping?

    Mine is Tulle which is weird because I never in a million years thought I'd wear a tulle dress!

    My dress was described as a "Dazzling Beaded Bodice on Flounced Tulle and Organza Ball Gown."

    I thought I’d wear lace. When I saw this dress online I loved it. When I tried it on in the store (it was the first one) my stepdaughters cried and I knew it was the one.

    I think that fabric isn't the first thing you think of when shopping, but it plays a huge part. Girls that want ballgown, A line, princess-y dresses will often go for tulle and similar fabrics. The sleeker shapes like mermaid and fitted are usually the silkier fabrics.

    Mine is mostly tulle and i love it because in order to change it, all i have to do is add some colorful/sparkly tulle! I love how fluffy and full the skirt is because of the tulle!

    Mine is lace. Not what I initially thought I wanted, but I do love it. It's an ivory lace with a gold thread in it as well.

    Mine is lace and tulle. I knew I wanted lace, but wasn't completely sold on the tulle. I love how minimal the lace is but it makes the dress pretty unique.

    My ballown is pale pink. The designer calls it Pink Champagne. I have a ruched, tulle, long waisted bodice with a sweetheart neckline that connects to a tiered, ruffled, tulle and organza skirt (that will be about 5 ft wide per the bridal salon at the bottom) with a cathedral length train. I'm 5'9" so I can pull off such a big, fluffy dress. It has beautiful crystals and pearls on the bodice. Not exactly what I had envisioned, but I knew it was THE ONE!! Perfect warm pink for a strawberry blonde, too. I love it. ❤

    Nice!! I'm glad you were able to get what you wanted! Did you have to try on a lot of dresses before finding "the one"?
