    I have to say that I’m more a fan of the taffeta rather than the satin.

    IMO satin can be a difficult fabric to wear if the fit of the dress is not perfect whereas the taffeta tends to be more forgiving.

    Definitely love the style of those dresses tho!

    Not a big satin fan so I voted for the taffeta which is my dress material as well 😉

    I personally love the taffeta.  I love the way it looks, it is my favorite “bridal” material, and I love the way you feel in it.

    Taffeta would be better for a summer wedding, so that is my vote!

    I love them both, but I have seen the second one a lot. If I was choosing the dress, I would choose the satin one; however, if you sweat a lot, you should choose the second one. I don’t sweat a lot, so the first one would work for me.

    I voted for tafetta. I’m wearing a tafetta in my August wedding!  I felt that the lighter fabric was perfect for hot weather.

    Satin looks more formal – taffeta is better for summer.

    Taffeta is going to be way better for you in August, in regards to temperature. Satin looks beautiful, but boy will you be sweating bullets wearing it!
