my friend has a cotton sateen dress from DB and her complaint was that it wrinkled easily

@marikja: I think they may be too informal. They wrinkle super easily, and they are very summery. While they might be cute for a springtime wedding, I don’t think they are formal enough for a tuxedo. Why not try chiffon? It’s a very comfortable and lighweight fabric, and it flatters everybody!

Where do you live?  I got J. Crew bridesmaid dresses for $30 at a warehouse clearance sale.  They’re silk teffeta and were originally $250.  If you live near an outlet or distribution center, it’s worth a call to see when they are having a warehouse sale.

I had one Bridesmaid or Best Man who LOVED the cotton sateen when looking online, but hated it in person.  I would definitely see it in person before purchasing (and I agree, it wrinkles too easily).

Target even had some cute Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses awhile back that were very affordable.

I agree – the cotton sateen is very informal – more like a summer dress. The mateiral reminded me of something I’d wear to a picnic.  So my girls veto-ed it right away after seeing it in person.  Try charmeuse or chiffon for a more formal church wedding.

I think it’s better suited to a casual or outdoor wedding & would look out of place with men in tuxes.
