WEDDING DRESS FABRICS

The choice of wedding dress fabric is very important, as it will determine, among other things, how fluid the dress is, how it falls, and whether it has a simple or more original look. The time of year the wedding will take place is a key consideration when choosing the dress fabric. If it will be in winter, smooth silk velvet is a good choice, while for warmer weather, satin and natural fibres are perfect.
