If you are looking at bridesmaid dress fabrics, then there’s a good chance that you have picked out your bridesmaid dress colors. Congratulations - That’s half the challenge! When picking out your bridesmaid dresses, it’s really important to keep your wedding theme, location, and date in mind. If your wedding is scheduled for December, you’ll want to choose a bridesmaid dress fabric and style that will keep your girls warm. Or if you’ve planned a destination wedding by the sea, you’ll want to choose a bridesmaid dress fabric that is light and airy. To help you pick out the perfect bridesmaid dresses for your special day, we have picked out our favorite bridesmaid dress fabrics and styles depending on the type of wedding you are planning!

So maybe you’re planning a July wedding in the heart of South Georgia or your dream of a sandy destination wedding is finally coming true. Your bridesmaids will need bridal party gowns that will allow them to breathe comfortably, stay cool, and look stunning. When it comes to choosing bridesmaid dress fabrics for your warm wedding, we suggest lightweight fabrics such as chiffon and lace. Chiffon bridesmaid dresses are perfect for your warm weddings because the fabric is light as air and will look truly beautiful flowing in the summer breeze. We love this full length chiffon bridesmaid dress with a v-neckline for your warm, summer wedding; plus, it comes in a variety of bright colors (Alfred Sung Style D739)! Lace bridesmaid dresses are also really popular because they are breezy and elegant. We offer a strapless classic lace bridesmaid dress with a removable matching full length chiffon overskirt. We love this bridesmaid dress style because the overskirt is elegant and airy when walking down the aisle, but the skirt can be quickly removed to dance freely at the reception (Dessy Collection Style 2954). When picking out bridesmaid dresses for your warm wedding, make sure your bridesmaids are feeling hot but just in the confident kind of way!

If there’s nothing more romantic to you than a blanket of snow, make sure you prepare for the cold by ensuring your bridesmaid dress styles and fabrics will keep your best friends warm for your winter wedding. For chilly weddings, we love bridesmaid dress fabrics like silk and velvet because these fabrics insulate body heat while allowing your bridesmaids to move freely and feel beautiful. For winter bridesmaid dress style inspiration, we love this full length sleeveless silk shantung dress with a keyhole back and this full-length velvet A-line dress (After Six Bridesmaid Dress 6771 and Dessy Bridesmaid Skirt S2999). Both of these dresses will look absolutely beautiful paired with a faux fur capelet to stay warm!
If you are planning a Spring or Fall wedding, you definitely have more freedom to choose bridesmaid dress fabrics and styles for your preference and less for practicality. If you are planning a late fall wedding or an early spring wedding, we just suggest something like silk shawls in case it is colder than expected!
While this is your wedding and it should look exactly the way you want it to look, we suggest keeping your bridesmaid’s confidence and comfort in mind when choosing your bridesmaid dresses! Your best friends will greatly appreciate it when you consider the wedding location and time of year when choosing your bridesmaid dress fabric and style.
