There are a lot of things to consider when purchasing your wedding gown. After all, this will likely be the biggest, and most important, clothing expenditure you will ever make. All of those considerations – cut, color, length, and style – begins with one thing. The fabric.
The fabric of your gown can depend on a number of things including the theme of the wedding, location, and more. If you are getting married somewhere warm like Las Vegas, wedding dress fabric should be thin and airy. A bride looking for a movie star look like the Audrey Hepburn classic Sabrina might opt for Damask.
