My dress is a Silk/Cotton Faille blend.  It’s a Priscilla of Boston.  I haven’t worn it yet but it’s in my closet:)  I was worried that the fabric wasn’t like luxurious enough, or a little casual even.  But when I tried it on, I loved it and the fabric has a nice sheen to it and I don’t feel casual at all in it.  I’d say if it felt light to you, I wouldn’t worry about it at all.  I mean if it feels heavy you’d probably be able to tell right away.  I also worried about cotton wrinkling easily, but after doing research and talking to brides that wore my same dress, that wasn’t an issue at all.

Here’s a couple pics of mine.  Good luck!  Show pics if/once you find one!:)

My bridesmaids will be wearing silk cotton blends and the material is really nice. It’s light, kind of shimmery although not too silky. If you’re having an outdoor wedding I think it’d be perfect but it could work indoors too!

The J Crew Lucinda ballgown that I will be wearig is a silk-cotton blend, and it is to die for. It looks and feels amazing. I think you’ll really like it 🙂

I think it looks beautiful, fresh, natural, and elegant. I have been disappointed with the cheap-y sheen of what should be some high-quality taffeta or silk dresses. so I will have to check this out.
