The satin (not to be confused with sateen) fabric is known for its shimmer/ shininess, which typically gives a luxurious feeling to one’s outfit. This leaves little wonder as to why satin is one of the top fabric choices for weddings and other formal wear.

If your dream look involves a satin dress, check out the below considerations to ensure that execution is to the tee! We have also included our top finds for satin wedding gowns to help with inspiration as you shop for your dream bridal dress.

Quality of the fabric

The quality of the satin fabric is essential to your wedding gown's overall look and feel. Satin's softness and subtle sheen make the fabric luxurious. When gown shopping, choose a high-quality satin that drapes well on your body and feels nice on the skin. Avoid scratchy or stiff fabrics, as these tend to be uncomfortable, especially if you plan to wear the gown for several hours.

Style of the gown

Silhouettes will look different on different body types, so choosing a style that suits your figure is important. A-line and ballgown styles tend to flatter most body types, while fitted styles may work better for certain body figures. In choosing your gown, consider the sleeve length, neckline, and skirt style that work well with your figure and match your personal style.

Accessories to complement the gown

Using accessories in your wedding outfit can help you achieve a stunning bridal look. Jewelry can elevate the gown's overall appearance and a veil or hair accessory can add that extra touch of elegance. When choosing accessories to use with your satin bridal gown, consider the colour and style of your accessories so they complement your vision!

Caring for your satin wedding gown

Dry cleaning is a better option for satin fabrics with a silk weave. Satin made with synthetic fibers can be washed by hand or in the washing machine (gentle cycle). To smooth out any wrinkles, try using a steaming machine (as opposed to a normal iron). Steaming, when done properly, will give you better heat control and avoid any iron-related issues (e.g., burning or creasing). Always remember to steam inside out first and gently steam the outside of the item afterward.
