A wedding comes with so many decisions that have to be made. One such decision is the style of bridesmaid dress that you are looking for – and with so many styles, shades and fabric choices to consider, this can be a tough choice. Traditional bridesmaids’ dresses are made from materials such as light and airy chiffon or detailed lace. A more modern and popular material choice on the bridesmaid dress market is satin. Satin material offers a sleeker and more glamorous look to your bridal party, which is perfect for a classic and elegant wedding theme.  

What is satin? 

Satin is a smooth, glossy material that is weaved from synthetic fibres. The material is often compared to silk but is available at a more affordable price point. Satin bridesmaids' dresses can come in a number of different designs and shades to fit any wedding theme. 

Why choose a satin bridesmaid dress? 

Satin dresses are comfortable for your bridesmaids to wear and have that special look for your big day. They look amazing in your wedding day photos, and they are easy for your bridesmaids to move around in through the day and on the dance floor at night. While satin can be a more affordable option, it does not compromise the look of the fabric.  

Let’s take a look at some of ChicSew's favourite satin dresses on the market.  


The ChicSew Champagne Satin Bridesmaid Dresses 

Retail price £109.99

If you want an elegant gown, these champagne satin bridesmaids' dresses are a great option. The pleated bodice adds delicate detail to the sage green satin pattern, while the higher neck is both beautiful and dignified. The leg split and gorgeous backless design give this high neck gown a modern and seductive twist, highlighting your bridesmaids' beauty. The mermaid silhouette emphasises the curves of your bridesmaid, before falling to the ground beautifully.  


Show Me Your Mumu Satin Halter Maxi Dress 

Retail price around £157.63

The Show Me Your Mumu Satin Halter Dress is a great satin dress option for those looking for a more effortlessly classy design. Available in ten different shades, this smooth, shiny satin dress drapes across the body in an almost water-like fashion. The dress comes in a range of different sizes from XXS to XXL. The halter dress would pair brilliantly with statement earrings and is available in the same material as many of the other Show Me Your Mumu Dresses for a mix and match style option.  


The ChicSew Rose Gold Satin Bridesmaid Dresses 

Retail price £109.99 

These rose gold satin bridesmaids' dresses are a terrific choice for a lower, V-neck neckline that gracefully highlights the bust. Two small spaghetti straps support the dress, which eventually combines into a cross V-neck design. The pleated material above the chest adds structure to the dress and it skims over the hips, emphasising but without clinging to them. This gown is ideal for the summer months. For a classic look, add in a delicate choker to accentuate the cleavage.   


David's Bridal Off-Shoulder Satin A-Line Tall Bridesmaid Dress 

Retail price £144.39

If you have some bridesmaids that are tall, finding a floor-length gown can be difficult. These off-shoulder, floor-length, A-line gowns from David’s Bridal come with an extra length option. Available in seven different shades, the dress sits perfectly across the décolletage and is available in a wide range of sizes. The glamorous design is perfect for a black-tie wedding and looks stunning with a statement necklace. 


The ChicSew Emerald Satin Bridesmaid Dresses 

Retail price £109.99

Emerald satin bridesmaids' dresses are a great choice for long-sleeved bridesmaid gowns that do not appear dated or old-fashioned. The high split adds to the design's current feel, while the off-the-shoulder style is a seductive take on a long sleeve that covers the rest of the arms. Long sleeves are also an option if you're planning an outdoor wedding in the spring or autumn when the weather may be a little colder. 


The ChicSew Burnt Orange Satin Bridesmaid Dresses 

Retail price £109.99 

These burnt orange satin bridesmaids' dresses are a new version of a traditional bridesmaid dress with its sleek, clean, and minimalist satin style. The thin straps, midi length, and minimal embellishments are gorgeous, yet won’t detract from the bride on her wedding day. The dress has a side zipper for easy wear, and the small cowl neck is modest and delicate. This style is ideal for an outdoor wedding in the sun.  


David's Bridal Spaghetti Strap Satin A-Line Bridesmaid Dress 

Retail price £144.39

For a satin bridesmaid dress in a classic design, this David’s Bridal A-Line Dress has it all. Available in more than 30 different shades, the beautiful satin material flows perfectly in this A-line silhouette.
