Destination Wedding Dresses: 5 Fabrics That Won'T Wrinkle Like Crazy

Blog

If you've decided to be a bit more adventurous and exciting with the destination of your wedding, you are going to have to take more care in choosing your wedding gown. Wedding dresses of any shape, size and fabric simply won't do. Instead, you'll need to choose a gown that is suitable for the location where you will be, and you need to opt for a fabric that is going to travel well. Luckily, a lightweight, wrinkle-free fabric (or one with a slight chance of small wrinkles) is easier than you think. You just need to know what to look for. Here are five options that will ensure you have the perfect material for your destination wedding dress, but you'll still look just as glamorous as your stunning locale:

1. Chiffon

Chiffon is a lightweight, transparent, sheer (no sheen) and delicate fabric that can be made from rayon or silk. It has a lustrous-soft finish and is usually layered due to the transparency. Even layered, it is light and airy, which is exactly what you need to be wearing while saying your vows as the waves crash in on the beach.

2. Embroidered Tulle

Tulle is a popular type of fabric that is usually made from rayon, nylon or silk. However, some don't like standard tulle because of its roughness. Luckily, embroidered tulle, or usually silk tulle, is much softer and easier going. It is still lightweight and can hold its shape so that you are ready for photos or the wedding itself as soon as you step off the plane.

3. Charmeuse

Charmeuse is a very lightweight fabric that is ultra-soft and shine-rich. In fact, it almost feels like satin when you touch it. However, you won't have to worry about the wrinkles that satin is prone to. Plus, while you're on the edge of the ocean or sea, your skin will be able to breathe and the charmeuse fabric will flow exquisitely in the breeze.

4. Lace

If you're aiming for as much of a traditional look as possible, then you may want to choose lace as your fabric. It offers an old-fashioned spirit and charm while also being whimsical in design, making it perfect for overseas and destination weddings. You can make it appear as formal or as casual as you would like, depending on your preferences and the exact setting.

5. Crepe

This is a lightweight, thin and soft fabric that is already a bit wrinkled. Well, it isn't really wrinkled, but its design consists of a crinkled surface. Therefore, due to its design, wrinkles really aren't something that you have to worry about. Don't worry about its lack of elegance, because even though it is thin and crinkly, it is a sturdy synthetic that appears beautifully sensuous.

Although those big, puffy gowns may be pretty, they aren't going to work well with your destination wedding. Not only will they get in the way as you are walking down the aisle, but they are much more likely to wrinkle — so badly, in fact, that you may not be able to get the wrinkles out in time. The aforementioned fabrics will work perfectly for you and your gown and will only require minimal steaming (if any at all) upon arrival.

Exploring The Wedding Planning Process

Hello, I am Ryan Vaughn. When I was growing up, I always dreamed of meeting the right girl and having a fairytale wedding. I thought out the tuxedo I would wear, dances we would complete and even the shape, size and flavor of the cake I wanted. Luckily, when I did meet the girl of my dreams, she had just as elaborate wedding desires. We set up a dream wedding with years of careful planning. Taking our time allowed us to get great deals on a venue, wedding supplies and clothing for our entire party. I would like to share the techniques we used to plan our wedding to help everyone achieve the event of their dreams. Thanks.
