Satin Wedding Dress

Satin is a type of weave made using filament fibres such as silk, nylon and polyester to create a fabric with a smooth, lustrous sheen that photographs well in any light. Satin has seen a resurgence in popularity in recent years - we have over 1,000 dresses incorporating satin to browse on Wedding Style Collective.

It is a relatively heavy, rich fabric that is also comfortable, which makes it an ideal choice for brides hosting a winter wedding; this special Ronald Joyce satin ball gown with a ruched bodice and off-the-shoulder neckline kills two love birds with one stone, ensuring you stay warm while your guests’ jaws drop.

Or how about a satin wedding dress with sleeves? The rich satin featured on this figure-hugging Kenneth Winston gown is offset by embroidery, lace and organza for a more decorative finish.

Slinky dress silhouettes in satin can be unforgiving, so brides looking for a figure-flattering option could consider A-line, natural waist and fit-n-flare styles. The structured satin skirt on this beautiful Kenneth Winston gown from the ‘Ella Rosa’ collection is offset with a natural waist and an intricately beaded back - a flattering option for any shape.

That said, brides keen to show off a slender figure can find the perfect balance of sleek simplicity and glamorous detailing in this full-length satin mermaid gown by Enzoani.
