Okay, let me start by being really honest – my dress budget? it’s tiny. Like… $400 including alterations kind of tiny. And I’m hoping to go lower than that. *hoping*
I tried on dresses today, for the first time. [Maybe I’ll post pictures another time; right now I’m too emotionally spent from 6 1/2 hours of dress shopping with my mom – 3 shops, and no, we don’t usually get along well, and no, I didn’t really find anything I loved.]
At David’s Bridal, the first place we went, there seemed to be two types of fabric. Both were listed as Polyster inside the dresses, but according to their website, the two are “Faile” and “Satin”. Satin, I’ve heard of. It’s soft, it’s thick, it feels like I expected dresses to feel. Faile though… the stuff reminds me of a picnic table cloth, minus the weird fuzzy underside that sticks to everything.
So my question is, what’s the deal with this faile stuff? Is it as cheapy as I’m assuming? Or just different from what I expected?
Has anyone bought a dress in it? I loved the shillouette of two of the dresses I tried on, but couldn’t get over feeling that they were cheap because of the material. Will it wrinkle like crazy? Or photograph weird? I’m hesistant, even though one dress was in my price range (on sale in store only), if I can find someone (like my GRANDMA) to do alterations for free, haha.
Okay, pics of the two dresses in question (not on me, sorry; later, I promise):
