@froydis: Don’t stress. Mine is silk and I think it will crease like hell, but I don’t care as I love it. I wouldn’t worry, I tried on a taffeta dress and found it so dreamy. The fact that you love it is what matters.

@froydis: I just think other peoples dress’ must crease but you never look at their photos and think ooh that’s creased. I started worrying about things, like small things the closer I got to the date.

Taffeta creases a lot less than many bridal gown fabrics, so stop worrying! It will be fine. πŸ™‚

I think you might have a little problem with this with the guest’s cameras, but the professional’s camera should use lighting/exposures that minimize the flaws.  At least that’s what I’m hoping with my taffeta dress. πŸ™‚

My taffeta dress has a slight natural “crinkle” to it anyway, so I doubt any real wrinkles or creases will show!  I wouldn’t worry about it – nobody notices these things but us brides πŸ™‚

I think Taffeta is one the least likely to wrinkle out of all the bridal fabrics. The added bonus is that unlike many of the silks and other materians Taffeta maintains its shape ie if you’re pulled in all tight at the beginning of the night the taffeta won’t stretch in tight spots and you’ll still be tight by the end (with the eception of a lace up back gown that will obviously give a little)

I agree taffeta doesn’t wrinkle as much as other fabrics and something I really liked when I bought my taffeta dress was its ability to hold its shape. You will probably not be worrying about little things like this with the excitement on the day, and a good photographer can adjust some small flaws. I’m sure it will look great!

My gown was made of taffeta and I didn’t notice any wrinkles in our pictures!
