Nothing speaks more to convention in the design of a wedding gown than structure. Certain fabrics have become synonymous with this type of gown, providing form yet still able to be manipulated with precision to the desired design.
Duchess satin and satin-polyester blends are the most well-known of structured fabrics and are ideal for A-lines, full or gathered skirts, mermaid shapes or a structured bustier. Some of my brides seek more volume, so I recommend they choose taffeta (which looks lavish in off-white) or organza.
One of my favorite fabrics for structured looks is tulle, which is no longer relegated to the underpinnings of a gown. Tulle is charming and beautiful, expressing a sense of youth and femininity; it is not ideal, however, for dancing or moving about. -XO, Vera
Blush and Bashful
Meagan and David chose a blush-toned palette for their vintage-inspired wedding in Wisconsin. The bride selected a number of romantic details, including ivory and pale pink flowers for the bouquets and centerpieces, bridesmaid dresses in flowing chiffon and a white tiered wedding cake with a lace-like pattern that mimicked her Vera Wang wedding dress. Get inspired by their beautiful wedding at Project Wedding.
