Taking The Guesswork Out Of Fabric Choices For Your Bridal Gown
Do fabric choices matter when it comes to choosing your wedding gown? We went to Party Dress Express in Fall River, New England's #1 Retailer for Proms, Weddings and Special Occasions, and they answered with an emphatic, "Yes!" The reason is simple: a Bride wants to feel fabulous on her wedding day. Heavier fabrics in summer might cause a Bride to feel weighed down by her dress (or worse, sweat during her photos!) A dress that's made out of a lighter weight fabric in winter might look too informal or leave a Bride feeling cold.
Donna Holland, the owner of Party Dress Express, immediately puts a Bride-To-Be at ease when she is picking out her wedding gown. "The first question I ask is, 'What time of year are you getting married?' If it's summer, I might guide them towards a lighter fabric, such as chiffon, crepe or a light satin." For a garden wedding, a Bride might want to choose a gown made out of tulle or lace. For a summer beach wedding, silk would be an excellent choice for a Bride's big day.
