It is becoming more and more popular to get away and have your big day on an exotic beach somewhere with all your family and friends there to watch. When choosing a location to have your wedding you have to think about all aspects as the change in climate can affect the theme you want. Its difficult to shop for a bridal gown and bridesmaid dresses in this country when you are having your day overseas as a lot of bridal shops within the UK tend to cater for the english weather which means the dresses are very layered which may not be the most suitable design for hot temperatures.

This is why when having your wedding abroad its a great idea to create your own style of dresses by choosing the fabrics you want which are also suitable for the weather conditions. Here at calico laine we have a wide range of Bridal Fabrics that are the perfect choice for beach weddings and will keep you cool throughout the day. Some of our lighter Bridal Fabrics include satin, chiffon and lace which are very lightweight and flowing fabrics that also work well as an overlay so you can still have layers within your dress just less bulky perfect for the warm weather.

Our chiffon and lace Bridal Fabrics are best to be placed over other light fabrics like satin to create a stunning feminine look with a beautiful flow and drape. These materials are available in a wide variety of colours including traditional white and ivory bridal colours as well as pretty summery shades such as pink, lilac and turquoise that are the perfect tones for a beach wedding. Our lighter satin Bridal Fabrics are also available in a wide variety of colours as well as different designs such as satin back crepe, satin back dupion and silky satin fabrics which are the best for creating that summery wedding look on your big day. Putting a lighter weight satin with a chiffon or lace over the top to create a more gathered look gives that perfect bridesmaid style for your summer wedding.
