VELVET VS. SILK

BACK TO GOWN

Most of our gowns are available in a lightweight crushed velvet or satin silk. The main differences are outlined below.

CRUSHED VELVET

  • has a nice flow
  • looks ancient and magical due to depth and shine
  • looks like it belongs in a castle
  • is easy to clean and  take care of
  • doesn’t crinkle
  • is a bit heavier than silk, but is a thin high quality dress velvet and is not too hot for summer weddings

SATIN SILK

  • looks young and fresh
  • is very light and cool
  • has an innocent and pure look
  • would fit well into a beautiful flower garden
  • will crinkle a little bit if stored folded or if you sit down
  • has to be dry-cleaned by a qualified cleaner, it's harder to remove spots and stains during the wedding
