Heavy, yes! Satin is a heavy fabric, my dress was quite heavy. There was also a lot of fabric to it. . . 

Shiny – not necessarily. I think some satins are shiny – but I also think other fabrics can be shiny as well.

But you can look at my pictures from my pro preview if you’d like to see how my satin gown photographed: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/hitched-september-29th-photo-preview-pic-heavy

My dress is satin.  When I was trying on dresses I didn’t find it any heaiver than dresses with embelished skirts.  Actually, the heaviest dress I tried on was a lace dress.

It is shiny- but in a good way.  Cheaper satins fabics tend to be shinnier.

Pic from my last fitting:

My dress was SO heavy. I was so happy to get it off at the end of the day, lol. But it wasn’t unbearable or anything.

The shiny is my favorite part about satin. And mine is not so heavy that it’s unbearable.

I don’t have a dress to share, but wanted to say that satin is not always shiny!  There’s such a thing as “dull satin.”  🙂

Mine was heavy, but not unbearably so.  In fact, that’s how I knew it was “the one”, because I didn’t care about how much more heavier it was.

My dress was heavy but on the day of I didn’t even notice. With the right fit and a corset I didn’t feel uncomfortable at all. As for shiny I haven’t seen a single photo with any shine.

I don’t remember my dress being any more heavy than some of the other dresses I tried on. Depending on the light it can be shiny but if you have a good photographer they’ll make sure you’re not lighting up like a Christmas tree.

This is my dress in crappy lighting (and crappy camera) at my dress fitting.
