Christmas is the perfect time of year to pop the question with people up and down the country celebrating the holidays as newly engaged couples. As soon as New Year hits, brides will be keen to start planning their upcoming nuptials. Here at Calico Laine, we can help with the planning with our beautiful range of Wedding Fabrics. Whether you decide to make your own wedding gown or pay a tailor to make bridesmaid gowns; we have Bridal Fabric for you.
In bridal boutiques, wedding dresses can be fairly costly. Many couples are on a budget when it comes to their wedding. One way to keep in budget and reduce costs is to have your wedding dress made. At Fabric-World we have a range of satins and crepe fabrics which are perfect for creating bridal gowns.
Duchess satin is the ideal Bridal Fabric if you are looking to create a ball gown wedding dress or a dress with structure instead of drape. Duchess satin has a beautiful aesthetic with a sheen rather than a shine; giving it a high end look. Available in white, ivory, cream, champagne and gold there are plenty of shades to choose from. Chiffon can be used as an overlay over duchess satin, to create texture, on a bodice or to add sleeves to a dress.
Another way to save money when it comes to weddings is to have bridesmaid dresses made, instead of buying them in a bridal shop. One of the most popular Wedding Fabrics for this is satin back crepe. This fabric comes in a large selection of colours and drapes beautifully. It is a reversible fabric giving you the choice of having a matt or shiny finish. This is similar to our Satin Back Dupion Fabric which is also reversible. This satin however is made to look like a silk dupion but at £7.99 per metre, it is half the cost.
