A Guide to Choosing the Right Satin Wedding Dress

When it comes to wedding dress fabrics, satin has a long-standing tradition in the wedding industry, dating back centuries. Today, satin remains a popular choice among brides for its timeless elegance and classic beauty. If you’re looking for a satin wedding dress, you’re in luck – there are many beautiful options to choose from at True Society.   

Satin is one of the most versatile materials, and because it has a lot of body, it is an excellent option for more structured gowns. It’s a supportive fabric that works with every body type and is an excellent choice for ruched, draped and ballgown styles. It’s also relatively wrinkle-resistant and durable, making it ideal for a busy wedding day. 

Often used in bridal gowns, satin has a beautiful lustrous sheen that catches the light and flatters the figure! It is known for its smooth finish and soft drape and has many different varieties.  

How to Choose a Satin Wedding Dress?

Below are a few considerations to keep in mind when shopping for a satin wedding gown: 

  • Think about the type of wedding dress silhouette and style you want—A-line, fit-and-flare or ballgown? Strapless or with sleeves? If you’re not sure which style is right for you, ask your True Crew bridal stylist for advice and try on a few different options. 
  • Decide if you would like to have an all-satin wedding dress or if you want a combination of other fabrics, such as lace appliques or a tulle skirt. 
  • Consider how heavy or lightweight you would like your satin wedding dress to feel. For a heavier gown, opt for Baronet satin, Duchess satin or Crepe Back satin. If you want something lightweight, find a dress made from Charmeuse satin or Messaline satin, or opt for something in the middle, such as Dove satin. 

Satin Wedding Dress Styles 

The versatility of satin makes it adaptable to a wide range of wedding dress styles and silhouettes, so there are plenty of alternatives to select from when looking for your dream dress.
