Non-Traditional Wedding Dress Textures

Non-Traditional Wedding Dress Textures

While many brides love a more traditional vibe, there are lots of women who want to explore a less traditional vibe for their wedding day! And here at House of Bridal, we’re SO here for that. Nowadays, brides are getting more experimental with their looks. Even if they’re sticking with a white gown, they’re opting for dresses with interesting fabrics and intricate detailing. Here are a few of our fave non-traditional wedding dress textures to try out for your wedding day:






Different crepes have different textures, weights, and drapes. Thick crepes are smooth and elastic, while thin crepes are gauzy and crinkly. A wedding dress, an evening gown, and romantic accessories often feature crepe fabric, regardless of its weight or texture. Crepe wedding dresses create a graceful silhouette with their long silhouettes. 

If you want it to be more elaborate, pair it with illusions, lace, and shimmer. 

A crepe gown is one of the most flattering fabrics when worn with undergarments that support your curves flawlessly! 

This crepe Martin Thornburg gown with its fit and flare silhouette is a fantastic choice for brides wanting to try out crepe textures! It boasts a gorgeous v-neckline with cold shoulder straps and a butterfly back with illusion insets.





If you’re looking for a glamorous wedding gown, then you should absolutely consider one with glitter tulle! We love sparkly dresses, and this non-traditional fabric will definitely make you feel like a queen on your wedding day! This gown from Sophia Tolli features a modern square neckline and beautiful beaded lace and glitter tulle. The fit and flare silhouette will hug your curves beautifully!





Because of its incredible drape, lightweight, plain weave organza produces dresses and skirts that have volume. There's more to organza than its pretty appearance - it's super strong too! Silk is traditionally used. There are synthetic and natural versions of organza fabrics. These stiff, sheeny fabrics are perfect for wedding gowns and evening gowns. There are a lot of designers who use printed organza to pair with other fabrics, such as taffeta or satin. This Paloma Blanca ball gown is made of organza, tulle, and lace and features a beautiful off the shoulder, plunging neckline that we adore!






Unique embellishments and intricate details really make a gown stand out, and this gorgeous Martin Thornburg dress threaded with metallic is so stunning! This fit and flare gown is sleeveless and covered in gorgeous clear sequin, with a deep plunging neckline.
