Your dress is gorgeous, I love it!  I am not a taffeta fan whatsoever, but I think it looks great on you. Also, I would have guessed your dress was satin from those pictures.  If you love the dress, keep it!  Taffeta isn’t tacky – some people love it, some people don’t, just like some people love satin or chiffon and others don’t.  I think the flower strap and long train are gorgeous!

If you love the dress, then keep it. Selling your dress because people think the fabric is “tacky” is asinine. FTR, my dress is silk taffeta.

I think its really pretty, and I like the strap, makes it a bit different to the ususal strapless gowns.

Don’t pay attention to those who say taffeta is tacky.  It’s not.  Your dress is beautiful and the strap is gorgeous, don’t remove it.  I agree it has a lovely glow to it.  You’ll rock it on your wedding day.

Silk taffeta is less expensive than many other silk fabrics, that doesn’t make taffeta tacky. Go with what you love!

I have always said I wasnt a fan of taffeta (I NEVER use the word tacky though) but I didn’t like it cause of the sound it made but that dress looks GREAT on you and I couldnt tell it was tafetta looking at the pics. I have fallen for an organza and taffeta dress (I think its silk taffeta though) for my vow renewal so opinions change all the time!

It doesn’t look tacky to me!

I know it’s hard but try not to think about what other people say/think when it comes to wedding things (or life in general, really). Everyone has different opinions and what seems tacky to one person, is fine to another. If you take what other people think to heart you will end up driving yourself crazy!

my dress is taffeta and no one has said it looks tacky. If you are that worried about it and it will haunt your dreams, get a new dress. but honestly, it looks wonderful on you and I dont think you should worry.
