When talking about personalized fabric for your wedding ribbons there are some things to consider. You may want the ribbons to match the fabric of your wedding dress or you may want them to be different but elegant. The most common ribbon fabrics are: satin, organza, mesh, grosgrain, wired sheer and polyester. For a wedding dress that has satin in it, I would go with satin wedding ribbon.  Except the mesh wedding ribbon all of the other fabric can be personalized by printing your names and your wedding day.
