I have found a very customer friendly company called....The Ribbon Company! They stock a huge range of all different types, textures and widths and will very happily post you out samples so you can try before you buy. Perfect if you are trying to pull a whole look together or match the colours of the flowers etc and also perfect as colour swatches that you can take to other meetings.
I ordered some of the cross grain which has a really good structure but think I am a big of softie satin girl at heart. Ribbon Company are kindly helping me decide by sending me more samples next week.
