Nontraditional Wedding Dress Textures

Wedding dress shopping is fun because you get to discover all the different types of fabrics and textures designers use to create these stunning gowns! There are SO many different textures to choose from. Did you know satin, silk, lace, and tulle are just a few of the most popular fabrics? 


The fabric of your wedding gown determines its silhouette, its formality, and its cost. When choosing the texture of your wedding dress, consider how you want to feel - are you more interested in a smooth fabric, or do you crave something more intricate? You'll enjoy today's post if you prefer something less traditional!  



There are many different textures, weights, and draping styles among crepes. A thin crepe is gauzy and crinkled, while a thick crepe is smooth and elastic. There is a wide variety of crepe fabrics available, regardless of weight or texture. Crepe wedding dresses have a super graceful silhouette! We adore this strapless crepe gown from Mikaella.




Lightweight plain weave organza provides volume to dresses and skirts due to its incredible drape. Organza is not only beautiful, but it is also extremely durable! Silk is traditionally used for making it. Organza fabrics are available in natural and synthetic varieties. Suitable for evening gowns and wedding dresses, this stiff fabric has a subtle sheen. This stunning organza gown also features Chantilly and sequin lace that adds even more depth to an already beautiful dress!



Double Lace

While lace is certainly a characteristic of many bridal gowns, not all of them boast primary and secondary layers of lace like this gown! This dress is bathed in lace from head to toe and is one of the most intricate designs we’ve seen. Paloma Blanca is known for their high-quality fabrics and hand-detailed work, so it deserves a spot on this list!



3D Florals & Lace

For 2022, we’ve realized that it’s all about the details for bridal gowns. And dresses that include layers of 3D florals and lace are having a huge moment! 3D details add another layer of interest and detail to any dress. We love how feminine it is, as well, especially on this dress!



Geometric Lace 

Geometric lace on a bridal gown is the epitome of sexy and chic! What’s interesting about this characteristic is that it lays atop the tulle so beautifully - imagine the photographs you could capture with a dress like this and its stunning details.
