I made my dress using shantung. It is a fairly stiff silk, so yes it does tend to wrinkle. It can be ironed but when you are wearing it you’ll get wrinkles.

What kind of organza? silk? That’s a much lighter fabric, usually it’s kind of like tulle, but like most silks it is surprisingly strong. It’s a good fabric, but I used it as an underlining so I’m not sure how wrinkly it is.
