I couldn’t find the color blue I had in mind until I found Alfred Sung Dupioni seaside. I absolutely love it. However after looking at a few real BM photos of other colors in the same fabric I wondered if it looked a little too shiny, almost like a foil. It looks like it photographs beautifully in the sunlight, but creates a trashy prom dress glare with a flash. Maybe certain colors would look better than others. I am not considering the peau de soie fabric as I am having a summer wedding and am worried about it showing sweat. I also heard the Peau de soie wrinkels more easily. I am open to other brands but haven’t found anything else yet. Chiffon may be a better option but can’t find anything so far.
Also, what should I consider for dresses to go with my own dress? My dress is strapless lace with a satin waist wrap (Alfred Angelo 2236). Our wedding will be in New Zealand by the water, with photos on the beach.
LOVE this (Dupioni in seaside)
This is both Dupioni seaside and fusion, it looks like fusion may may look more shiny than the lighter color?
