Though the way it looks and feels is certainly an important consideration, that starts with choosing the ultimate wedding dress fabric. At When Freddie met Lilly, we realize just how important your wedding dress is to you, so read on below for a few tips on how to choose the best wedding dress fabric to make your big day even more perfect.

The Weight of the Wedding Dress Fabric

The first thing you want to consider is the climate and time of year you are tying the knot. If it’s in a tropical paradise and the weather is going to be hot, then you don’t want a fabric that will weigh you down and make you faint before you ever get to the altar. When Freddie met Lilly has the perfect wedding dress for the tropical climates in the Cressida Gown. With its lace beading and the way, it drapes on the shoulders, it will be the perfect complement to the bride on your big day.


There are different fabrics from lightweight to heavyweight to consider when shopping for the perfect wedding dress fabric. If you are looking for an airy almost ethereal look, then you will want to stick with chiffon or tulle. The Chanel Gown for example is made using soft baby tulle and comes with a waistband that flatters all figures. Many brides don’t realize that chiffon, when draped properly, can also be a great insulator for a winter wedding.


If you want something a little heavier, then organza is a nice compromise. It’s crisp, sheer and used by many wedding designers. You can also drape yourself in silk or charmeuse so that you feel like a princess on your big day. The Charlotte Bodice at When Freddie met Lilly is the perfect example of a dress that will have you feeling like the belle of the ball as you walk down the aisle to meet the man of your dreams.


If you are looking for a wool wedding dress, then you might have a problem. However, there are heavyweight fabrics out there for those chilly temps during a winter wedding. Satin and taffeta work well when it comes to having your wedding in the chiller climates during the winter.  So you will be warm and gorgeous at the same time.

What About the Texture?

The texture of the fabric you choose for your wedding dress is important as well. Lace has long been the go-to for brides to be everywhere. There are many options in lace to choose from at When Freddie met Lilly. So make sure that you come on down to our shop to browse around.

This is just a little of the information you might want to know when you are searching for the right wedding dress fabric to meet your needs. Come on over to When Freddie met Lilly in Brisbane today so that our designers can help you find the wedding dress of your dreams in a fabric that you are sure to love.
