I agree that the silk satin organza would more produce the soft romantic feel, so if you’re going for that then I think it will be lovely. The dress is A-MAAZING and you probably would be fine with either. I have to admit to being partial to the original top though. It’s beautiful… But in fairness I’m especially partial to lace with netting. (That’s what I have for my dress. This is YOUR dress.)

Based on your measurements, you probably don’t have to worry too much about unforgiving fabric. That said, the most important thing is that you feel confident/comfortable wearing the dress.

Ooooo I love that skirt!  I tried on a similar dress with the same skirt when I was dress shopping (Lazaro 3213) and that skirt feels like a cloud! 

I like the dress as is, but if you don’t like lace then silk satin organza is pretty too!

@rayray17:  Ok good 🙂 

The satin would give it a total different look and feel, but nonetheless beautiful. It’s weird because I’m not a fan of lace normally but this one just speaks volumes to me!

@rayray17:  Duchess satin is thick, soft and very forgiving. Thinner, cheaper satin is what shows “everything.” My daughter loved a Matthew Christopher gown made entirely of duchess satin, but was very concerned about the satin showing every wrinkle, so we really put the sample dress to the test. We did everything we could to wrinkle and crumple it but everytime it bounched back and looked smooth again. And it didn’t cling to her body, so nothing showed that she didn’t want to show!

Her very favorite satin on any of the 140 dresses that she tried on (yes, 140!) was actually the skirt of a Lazaro. She said that it was the softest and most luxurious fabric she had ever worn. So if Lazaro uses that same fabric for your dress you may be for a real treat.

As much as I love the top of your dress as it is, IMO satin would be the better second choice for the top. I’m trying to envision how organza would even be applied. Would it be rusched?

@rayray17:  It was the skirt on this Lazaro that she said was made of the most luxurious satin she had ever worn. Unfortunately, the description on the web page only says satin and I can’t remember if the bridal shop owner said it was Duchess satin http://www.jlmcouture.com/Lazaro/Bridal/Additional/Style-3105

 

This is the Matthew Christopher dress that she loved and we tried to wrinkle but it just bounced back. That bridal shop owner did say it was Duchess satin:

The silk satin organza that you posted looks gorgeous! Either way, I think that you’ll have a really beautiful dress.
