Wedding Dress Fabric Guide

December 1

Today on Love, Maggie, we’ve compiled a handy wedding dress fabric guide. Shopping for a wedding dress is one of the most anticipated and exciting steps for a bride. However, with so many details to consider including color, cut, cost and length, approaching this decision can feel intimidating. As one of the most important factors, wedding dress fabrics may seem unfamiliar and therefore overwhelming… Make your experience a little easier with our wedding dress fabric guide!

Satin is a favorite go-to fabric for wedding dress designers seeking to add structure and drama to their collection. To help brides look and feel their best, our design team utilizes the rich support of satin fabrics to provide dress structure in conjunction with our incomparable Maggie fit. Satin’s smooth fabric makes it the perfect choice for ruched, draped, and ball gown styles. Because of its heavy material, satin is a great choice for low-temperature weddings. Choose dutchess satin for your elegant winter wedding this year! See Kenley here.


The elaborately patterned Venise lace is a fresh interpretation of classic lace fabrics. Bold lace adds texture and depth to many wedding dress styles, but we especially love it on our Trudy gown because it is not overpowered  by the gown’s simple silhouette. Add a twist to your classic yet modern wedding style by incorporating bold lace.


Tulle is a netting made of silk and nylon. Because of its delicate and sheer nature, it’s primarily used for veils and skirts. We love the way that tulle adds drama and volume to a dress without adding bulk. Our Lansing dress makes a statement while remaining soft and feminine as delicate tulle falls effortlessly over the classic lace silhouette. Swaroski crystals and our famous corset closure give this dress glamour and the perfect fit that will complete your dreamy wedding-day look.


Leather is fashion-forward fabric for wedding dress designs and we are excited to introduce it to our Maggie brides-to-be! Just in time for cooler-temperature months, let leather replace softer fabrics of tulle and silk to make a statement at your wedding. Our Kristen gown lays flat to the body for an ultra-flattering, ultra-chic look that will have all of your guests talking. Add a feminine touch with the detachable tulle skirt for a second-look option to play around with throughout the day!


Organza is a sheer and lightweight fabric like chiffon, however its crisp texture allows it to hold shape. Paired with blush, a hot trend for wedding color palettes, organza fabrics create a high-fashion look. Try our Serencia gown around the month of February for an added amount of romance and glamour.


The soft and whimsical effect of tulle pleated into delicate layers provides lines that will lead eyes to all the right places, highlighting your best feminine features. Lacey Marie’s design details, like the corset closure, flatter every body shape. This dress is the perfect solution for a bride dreaming of a soft and romantic feel but not willing to negotiate our incomparable Maggie fit.
