Non-Traditional Wedding Dress Textures

Non-Traditional Wedding Dress Textures

Considering something a little less traditional for your wedding? Totally okay! We're here to give you permission! In the past, wedding dresses were always silk or satin and had an A-line shape. Many brides are wearing colors, sparkles, and fun textures these days! This is super cool because it's fashion-forward and a great way to surprise your guests. It adds interest to a gorgeous wedding gown when you wear a non-traditional texture. We at Mariella Creations in Connecticut have rounded up some of our favorite non-traditional wedding dress textures to choose from, whether you're going classic white or bold:




Because of its incredible drape, designers will incorporate organza into dresses and skirts with volume. Organza is super strong, despite its sheer appearance! It's traditionally made from silk. Nowadays, you can buy both natural and synthetic organza fabrics. Evening gowns and wedding dresses alike love this stiff material with a subtle sheen. Printed organza is great with other fabrics like taffeta and satin, and a lot of designers use it.






If you want to wear a gorgeous organza gown for your wedding, consider this stunning fit and flare from Love By Bridal Collective. It’s the epitome of chic romance! In matte Mikado, the whimsical detail adds texture to the minimalist gown, while body-contouring seams keep it fitted throughout the hips into a flare skirt trimmed in multilayered organza and tulle ruffles. Make a statement with a sleek bodice and an eye-catching skirt!




There are many different textures, weights, and draping styles available when it comes to crepes. Thin crepe is gauzy and crinkled, while thick crepe is smooth and elastic. Even though crepe fabric comes in different weights and textures, it is usually a luxurious choice for wedding dresses, evening gowns, and romantic accessories. A wedding dress made of crepe has a long and graceful silhouette. 


A clean, bright look is possible with it alone, but it can also be enhanced with illusions, lace, and shimmer - perfect for a non-traditional bride. When paired with proper undergarments that support your curves flawlessly, crepe gowns are one of the world's most flattering non-traditional fabrics! 



STYLE #4980



This crepe wedding gown from Paloma Blanca is one of our faves! It’s a sleeveless dress with a bateau neckline and v-shaped inserts under the arms made of nude Italian tulle. Plus, it features a stunning detachable bow on the back! 




Choose a gorgeous velvet gown for your wedding day if you want to make a statement! It became an all-season favorite for brides and bridesmaids with its luxurious, unique fabric in late 2019 and won't go anywhere anytime soon. Because it's figure-flattering and forgiving, this fabric is a great choice for brides! 






If you want your wedding dress to make a big impact, look no further than Casablanca Bridal. Designed to stand out, it's perfect for those who want to be noticed! There is a mesmerizing interest of texture created by the stretch lining and perfect placement of velvet appliques. With its one-shoulder neckline and beautiful triangle shape on the back, we love how timeless and chic it is. The fit and flare is transformed into a stunning A-line silhouette with a removable skirt, and you can also pair it with a cathedral length veil for an even more dramatic look! 




We can definitely see why feather wedding dresses are making a big impact in the bridal industry. A bride looking for a luxurious look for her wedding day will love these extravagant fabrics. Your nuptials will be the talk of the town with this eye-catching detail! Wedding dresses with feathers are truly unique, and you can find a variety of silhouettes and colors that will make yours even more special.

This gown by Casablanca Bridal is absolutely perfect for a non-traditional bride! Feathers flow from the train and matching veil of this gorgeous, unique gown. The fit and flare silhouette will hug your curves beautifully, and we adore the strapless sweetheart neckline. It’s another showstopper, for sure! 








Another wonderful non-traditional choice is a beautiful wedding gown that’s covered in unique lace embellishments like this one from Élysée. It features an incredible blend of baroque and floral lace to hug your body and sparkly hand-beading on the neckline. The double sculpted hem is positively to die for!
