When it comes to shopping for bridal party dresses, there are so many fabric choices to take into consideration. Should you go for traditional fabrics like lightweight chiffon and intricate lace? Or maybe you’re searching for something that feels a little more glamorous and glossy? If you happen to fall into the latter category, satin bridal party dresses should definitely be on your radar.

What Is Satin?

Satin is a type of weave made from non-natural fibers. It's typically smooth with a lustrous or glossy finish.

Boasting a similar luminous sheen as pure silk, but often at a fraction of the cost, satin has long been a popular choice for bridal party dresses–and it’s easy to see why. This smooth fabric comes in many variations that range from heavyweight duchess satin to lightweight satin-charmeuse, making it a versatile option for all types of weddings and seasons. What’s more, a satin weave works well for an abundance of silhouettes from slinky ‘90s-inspired slip dresses to formal ball gowns. Plus, thanks to its luster and almost velvet-like appearance, satin always photographs beautifully. 

Ahead, the best satin bridal party dresses for every style, season, and budget.
