5 Fabrics for your Not-So-Typical Bridesmaid Dresses

We are born in a wedding-world where satin, silk and chiffon, matchy-matchy bridesmaid dresses reign. While some would choose the mismatched look using these fabrics, it is still refreshing and exciting to see some brides choose fabrics that are different from the usuals – something that would mirror more their character and individual tastes.
I have curated below 5 fabrics that are seldom chosen as material for bridesmaid dresses. I’m sure your girls would love any of these lovely dresses, long after you exchanged I-Dos!

1.  Knitted Fabric – cardigans are not only cute on the flower girls, they will also look gorg on your girls!

4.  Cotton Fabric – cotton is a usual choice for a sundress, but for a bridesmaid dress? Not so. Dare to break the norm, and see that using cotton as a bridesmaid dress actually works!
