    I really like the flatter material of the Alfred Sung, and was looking at them myself.  But some of the “real bride” photos on Weddington Way scared me away as they seemed a lot shinier.  And my Mother-In-Law was telling me that dupioni can wrinkle easily (FH’s cousin’s baby’s christening… the baby had dupioni booties! lol).  I would LOVE to see some more “in the wild” photos of the Alfred Sung dresses…

    I think it depends on the kind of wedding you’re having.  The satin would work if you’re having a more formal wedding IMO; the matte silk would look great with either but would go especially well with a more casual wedding.  My two cents.

    Why don’t you just order some swatches?

    my BMs wore Alfred Sung in black.  Dupioni is slightly thicker than peau de soie.  Three girls below are in dupioni and one is in peau de soie (due to an ordering mishap).  Both are so similar that you can barely tell.  Friend on the far right is in peau de soie.  My little sister rewore her Bridesmaid or Best Man dress to the presidential inaugural ball.

    $136 is an awesome price for the dress.

    Everytime I see that shiny fabric, I think cheap prom gown.  That’s the truth.  Like the other selection better.  At least it will be able to be cut and worn again as a party dress without looking like you are 17.

    I like the satin- more formal, more elegant.
