Silk is one of the most expensive fabrics in the textile industry. This kind of fabric has a clean and beautiful texture. Many brides choose this kind of fabric because it represents luxury. This kind of fabric is very delicate and can be easily destroyed when exposed to warm conditions. 

Most designers use silk for wedding dresses that are scheduled to be used during the fall and winter seasons. When it comes to cleaning this kind of fabric, the wet-cleaning method is often used to avoid exposing the fabric to harsh chemicals.


Another famous wedding dress fabric is satin. Satin is well-loved by wedding dress designers because of its smooth with natural sheen texture. It is very versatile that you can use it easily to style your wedding dress. This fabric is thick and heavy which is perfect for cold weather. Since satin is a combination of different fabrics, the cleaning used for this can either be the dry-cleaning or wet-cleaning method. 


When you think of a wedding dress, the design is not complete when it is not incorporated with lace. Lace is another fabric that is often used by many when it comes to creating a wedding dress. It has a variety of textures, patterns, and embellishments which are perfect to be used for details on a wedding gown. 

If you are planning to have a classic or vintage style wedding dress, then this fabric is perfect for you. It also exudes a romantic and feminine vibe that is why a lot of brides-to-be love this kind of fabric to be included in their wedding dress. Using this fabric can also be tricky because it makes cleaning and preserving a wedding dress more delicate due to its intricate features.


If you are looking for a cheap alternative for silk, then you can use rayon. Rayon is a more affordable choice if you are tight on budget. This kind of fabric is elastic. Since it is a semi-synthetic fabric, it is lightweight and breathable. 

Many designers suggest using this kind of fabric on weddings scheduled during the warm season because of its breathable properties. Even though it is inexpensive, it is durable and does not easily wrinkle - perfect for draping and styling purposes.

Polyester is one of the best inexpensive and synthetic fabrics available in the market. Designers enjoy using this fabric because it can easily be woven with other fabrics.
