Which one of you brides has always wanted and dreamt of having a lace dress? This blog post is going to inform you on everything you need to know about finding your perfect lace dress. All fabrics that wedding dresses use are all beautiful, but none of them come close to how romantic and historical lace is.
Back in history, when a bride would wear lace at her wedding, this demonstrated the wealth of your family and prosperity. It would tell everyone that you came from a wealthy family and that you could afford to get married in a lace wedding dress. Things have changed since then, and that is not what people think of when they attend a wedding. Now you see more lace on a dining room table or in the house, but you do not see it as a symbol of wealth.
Lace wedding dresses are still around though. They are very popular in the wedding dress world. But now, you can see lace not only as the whole dress but little bits and pieces of lace through the bride's attire for her big day. For instance, in her veil, as an sash around her waist, of course the all over lace look, or even just lace being placed on the skirt or top of the dress.
SHORT WEDDING DRESSES
When you are searching for your perfect wedding dress, do not get something that you will not love. If you do not want to get a long dress with a cathedral train, then do not. Do what you want to do because when it comes down to it, this day will be all about you. If you have always pictured yourself in a short, playful wedding dress, then try and find what you have always envisioned. Trust me, there are some short wedding dresses that are to die for, you may just have to look a little bit harder. Some of the reasons why brides may choose a short wedding dress over a long and traditional dress is if the wedding is more informal, on a beach, at a court house, a summer / spring wedding, or even if the bride just wants to be different!
Short wedding dresses are also becoming very popular for brides that want to have two different dresses for their big day. They will a formal and elegant dress for their ceremony and then at some point during their reception, they will switch into a more playful and sexy short dress.
DIFFERENT KINDS OF FABRICS
With going along with the last post that I did, I felt that it was necessary to cover some of the basic types of fabrics that every bride should be familiar with. Every kind of fabric has its own way to flow and make the dress appear. Another thing for brides to consider is that a fabric will look completely different on every bride. Finding the right fabric is just like finding the right shape of your wedding dress. I hope that the description of the top five wedding dress fabrics will help you in finding the perfect dress !!!
Satin – When you look at the fabric satin, you see the shinny surface and the glowing effect that is appealing. Most of the time, the wedding dresses will be embellished my adding lace, beads, or gems to make a dress have more glam. Satin dresses are a very free and flowing kind of fabric that lead to a sexy, romantic look.
Silk – It is the most luxurious fabrics manufactured. This fabric is very breathable and versatile. It is also very flowing and free to walk in. Because of the smooth surface it has, it clings and fits a body of a bride that is a gorgeous look to a romantic wedding.
Organza – This is one of the stiffer fabrics that you will find when you go wedding dress shopping. Because of the stiffness of this fabric, you will most likely find it in the dresses that have a full skirt or many layers. You will also find this fabric with a light lace overlay on it also. Lace always adds an additional touch to a glowing fabric.
Brocade – This kind of fabric can make a dress look from traditional to modern and even stylish. Usually soft brocade is used for wedding dresses to make them look more formal and elegant. Some of these dresses will have a pattern in them by using threads woven into them. Also, you might see these elegant dresses in royal weddings that indicate status.
Chiffon – This last kind of fabric is one that falls along your body and hangs perfectly by your body shape. It is a light fabric where you can see through one layer, that is the reason why sometimes you will see multiple layers on a dress. These are also sometimes embellished to add more effect on your perfect wedding dress.
