You gotta go and see the dresses in person or ask for color swatches and fabric swatches to be mailed to you, because fabric choices are a matter of personal preference

Can you post pics of the dresses in question?

I agree, I would have swatches mailed to you so you can make your mind up. It’s hard to judge it unless you can see and feel it. Good luck!

@liebigce:  After looking at the pics on the links, I agree.  The wild plum does not have a sheen and it does look casual.  The spiced wine has a sheen and looks more formal.  I think the taffeta dress looks better for an elegant reception.  Why are you worried abut the spiced wine not being purple enough?  Are you trying to match something exactly?  Maybe your flowers, decorations etc. can be different shades of purple so you can be sure to have a purple look instead of a wine look.

I don’t think the cotton silk faille is too casual — I think it comes down to accessories, you could make it feel more elegant to your maids with the right shoes, hair, jewelry.

Taffeta is definitely more dressy, but also more fussy in some ways and not as easy to wear again (if that is a concern) b/c of the shine. Just my opinion though, I do love taffeta, but it’s less versatile.
