April 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 91

Now-a-days, wedding gowns come in many styles, many shapes, several colors, many different types of material and many different types of embellishments. The consideration in regards to wedding gowns has to do with gown material cut, the way the gown might drape, and the different textures in materials.With each different type of material comes a different look. Because of the different types of material for wedding gowns, a different feel of the material is appropriate. Some materials can bring about the appearance of crispness, while others might give the appearance of softness.

Some materials might be more popular than others. The material most popular and most desired by today's brides is that of silk. Silk has a "quality of refinement." The reason silk is in such demand is because it has a sense of resiliency, elasticity, and strength. The threads of silk-type materials have been created to be that of density woven silk that creates similar to that of densely woven silk that creates a gloss. Then there is that silk like material charmeuse that has a rougher nubby quality. Then there is a other types silk like that of chiffon, tulle, and organza. The last few silk types just mentioned here, are light weight and transparent.

As you continue reading here about, let's define and describe other materials that could be used as part of one's bridal gown. They are:

1) Baptiste: This is a light soft transparent fabric.

2) Crepe: A light soft thin fabric with a crinkled surface.

3) Duchess satin: A light weight hybrid of silk and rayon or polyester woven into a satin finish.

4) Illusion: This is a fine sheer net fabric generally used on the sleeves or neckline of a bridal gown.

5) Moire: This is a heavy silk taffeta with a subtle wavy design to the material.

6) Organdy: This is a stiff transparent fabric.

7) Peau de Soie: A soft satin-faced high quality cloth with a dull luster, fine ribs, and with a grainy appearance.

8) Silk: The most sought after cherished fiber used for wedding dresses and is also the most expensive type of material. Then there is also what's called raw silk, silk mikado-silks heavier than 100% silk.

9) Taffeta: This material is not only crisp and smooth, but it also has what is called a "light rib."

10) Tulle: Netting made of silk, nylon and rayon. Tulle is used often for bridal petticoats and wedding veils.

Now-a-days, there seems to be more of a variety in bridal gown material types. Some gowns even have a combination of several of the above material types within one gown itself. Regardless of material in a bridal gown, most gowns will create a very special picture of any bride wearing any type of gown made with any type of material.
