I have a choice in fabric for custom BM dresses but don’t know what to choose. Which is better, cotton silk or tafetta? Would one get really wrinkley easily? Would one look a lot dressier than the other? I want whichever is least shiny. Please help me because I have to tell her right away and have no access to fabrics.

taffeta is such a limiting fabric; i fell in love with cotton silk, just ended up going with chiffon bc of my all-lace dress. good luck!

I think cotton silk would be less shiny. I absolutely love my BM dresses, which were silk taffeta, but they were a bit shiny.

I didn’t like taffeta when I was trying on wedding dresses. It felt…. crunchy or something. Kind of itchy too. I would vote for the cotton silk if you’re not choosing a style that needs a lot of struture in the fabric.

Cotton silk is so much prettier in my oppinion and it is what my girls are going to be in!

I love Dessy dresses and out of the two you like I prefer D458. As for material I think taffeta would shine more. I tried on a tafetta wedding dress and did have a bit of shine to it. As for wrinkling the cotton/silk may do more but I don’t know, that’s just a guess.

Are these the actual dresses you’re using, or are you having them custom made? I purchased my bridesmaids dresses from this line (d447) and used the silk dupioni.
