Hi bees, this is my first post!
I am getting married early next year and have been pinning lots of inspirations and ideas. I love duchesse satin (so classic!) and would love to see if you wore or will wear a satin dress! Did you have a traditional look overall or did you go with more modern accessories?
My friends worry that satin will make me look older (I’m 24) and bridal pictures will look old-fashioned…so I’d love some “current” pictures of brides wearing satin!
Thank you 🙂

Hi Bee, here is my satin dress I’m wearing to my November wedding. I will also be 24. Mine is not duchess, it’s a matte micado, which is a blended fabric, but looks like satin. I’ve also got a picture of one I tried on, which was a satin that I loved, but came up a little too yellow in natural light. Post some pictures when you try! I think satin dresses are gorgeous, and definitely don’t have to look old, or old fashioned. I’m planning fairly simple accessories with some rustic flowers and a plain long veil.

Mine is also mikado! I’m 25 but I don’t feel like it makes me look old at all. Go for the satin! It’s such a beautiful fabric and it makes you feel so classically bridal!

Satin can look extremely elegant and modern. The first one is my wedding dress, which is (some type) of Satin print. The second is just plain satin (One I tried on, but didn’t buy)
I will be adding either pearl or moonstone jewelry set and a tiara, because I want to feel extra on my wedding day. But how you accessorize is your style.
Enjoy shopping and keep your mind open.

you look great! The top of the dress has a more modern vibe so the design looks fresh. The dress I’ve been eyeing looks pretty cream even under outdoor daylight, which is also a concern for me. It’s all silk though so I guess it makes sense..it does look richer but also quite difficult to pair with accessories.
so pretty! Is it a two-piece? Your fabric looks quite light so it doesn’t look as “old” as heavier gowns. Also having a strapless neckline kind of helps 😉 I agree it feels a lot more bridal. Most fabrics are gorgeous, I actually adore tulle, and chiffon etc too, but they make me feel more like a pretty princess / bridesmaid-y.
That is an amazing print, really unique yet very much bridal. Pearls do go especially well with satin, super classy!
thanks for sharing, the dress looks great on you!

I was really surprised at how much I loved satin dresses when I was dress shopping! I always was drawn to lacy/detailed dresses in pictures but there were a couple satin gowns that really grabbed my attention. I did end up picking a dress with some lace on it, but here were two satin gowns that I loved:

There was one satin dress that I really liked and was a contender but I went with something else. I don’t think satin looks old at all! I’m 35 and felt very fresh in this dress. If you love it and feel great in it, do it!

Totally thought I was going to be a lace girl but fell in love with this one for my June wedding. I’ll be 27!

I went with satin dress, and it looked very elegant and timeless. I am 33 but the dress didn’t make me feel.old or anything, I think satin dresses are timeless and classy.

I love the look of satin dresses! Here is my dress I will wear. It is made of dove (matte) satin and cut in a relaxed trumpet style. If you are worried about looking a little old-fashioned, try on newer silhouettes and style them with more modern accessories. Good luck with dress shopping!

I wore a duchesse satin gown and went from a day to night/ceremony to reception look (sleeved jacket that I could remove)
I don’t think it dates, but I do think minimal/uncomplicated jewellery helps 🙂
