Hello everyone! I am having the hardest time selecting the fabric of my dress. I know the silhouette, but can’t decide whether to go with satin, chiffon, taffeta? Below are the three dresses that I have narrowed it down to. These are not pictures of me in them. They all look great on (I’ve tried them all) and all of my family and friends are equally split. Also, They all work for my venue. Dress#1 is moonlight bridal t450. I will add a crystal sash Dress#2 is La Sposa Madiera and Dress #3 La Sposa Laurel. I will remove the bow and add crystal sash.

@Missteaandcrumpets: My favorite is #3, but I would do it without the bow!

I like number one best, but that may be because a real person is wearing it! I’m not a fan of the side gathering on 2, or the ruching on 3 🙂

Definitely #3 without the bow!

I love number 1!
2: I like the ruching on this one, but I don’t like the layer underneath that looks like it’s a different fabric… it looks mismatched, or like the skirt got caught up and the slip is showing.
3: I really, really don’t like that style of ruching… makes me think of a mummy. And the flat ruffles with unfinished-looking edges at the bottom just make it look like a mummy that got caught on something and is starting to unravel…
No offense to any brides who may own or love either of those dresses.. but those were my honest first thoughts. 🙁

@Missteaandcrumpets: I don’t like the stiff feel of taffeta and I like more structured tailoring so I don’t love how limp chiffon appears so I would go with satin.
I definitely love #1 with the sash! isn’t that satin? it looks lush! WINNER!!!

LOOOVVVEEEE #3! Even WITH the bow.
But I also like what @Missteaandcrumpets suggested!

The Moonlight with a sash is sort of like my Paloma Blanca. It may help you seeing it on a real person with your decision. Obviously I’m biased and voted for satin! 🙂

I like the third dress without the bow, definitely. I like the softer fabric and flow, and I also dislike pick-ups!
