Chiffon or Velvet Bridesmaid Dresses for Winter?
Summer weddings sure are stunning but there are some drawbacks to consider, like the sweltering heat that could cause a mess on your makeup and hair. And oh the unpleasant smell and patch of sweat under your satin gown! With a winter wedding, you’ll love the cool air and get stunning snowy wedding phots, holiday-themed wedding décor and more. Your guests are more likely to be there for your big day if you decide to opt for a winter wedding venue. In the summertime, many people may have booked holidays or have other weddings to attend. Getting married at a colder time of the year can guarantee your nearest and dearest are there to witness your beautiful ceremony.
One of the two most common fabrics for bridesmaids dresses are chiffon and velvet. Chiffon is the ultimate bridesmaid dress material as it is both thin but sturdy, delicate but bold. Chiffon is usually very sheer which gives it that whimsical, draped look. Velvet is a beautiful choice for adding glamour and character to a dress. Velvet is a heavier fabric that has a soft, felt finish. It has a plain underside and adds warmth and drama to a dress. Thus, it’s very obvious that velvet is a more suitable choice of fabric for winter wedding.
Go bold with a velvet wedding gown with your girls in velvet bridesmaids dresses. Velvet definitely adds warm and cozy vibes to your winter wedding with a romantic vintage feel!
