    taffeta is such a limiting fabric; i fell in love with cotton silk, just ended up going with chiffon bc of my all-lace dress.  good luck!

    I think cotton silk would be less shiny.  I absolutely love my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, which were silk taffeta, but they were a bit shiny.

    I didn’t like taffeta when I was trying on wedding dresses.  It felt…. crunchy or something.  Kind of itchy too.  I would vote for the cotton silk if you’re not choosing a style that needs a lot of struture in the fabric.

    Cotton silk is so much prettier in my oppinion and it is what my girls are going to be in!

    I love Dessy dresses and out of the two you like I prefer D458. As for material I think taffeta would shine more. I tried on a tafetta wedding dress and did have a bit of shine to it. As for wrinkling the cotton/silk may do more but I don’t know, that’s just a guess.

    Are these the actual dresses you’re using, or are you having them custom made?  I purchased my bridesmaids dresses from this line (d447) and used the silk dupioni.
