    My dress is made in taffeta.  I paid more money to have it changed to satin.  I can’t stand the crinkle noises and shininess.

    I loved the taffeta of my dress for it’s sturdiness, yet lightness.  My second choice gown was chiffon, and that is glorious fabric too!

    My dress is lace and tulle.  I felt that satin was too clingy and the taffeta gowns I tried were too stiff.

    i hate taffeta with a passion.  i wouldn’t touch it with a ten foot pole.  i’m sure it’s fine for other people but i really dislike it.

    I was stuck on fabrics for a very long time but the dress I fell in love with only came in taffeta so I had to go with it, plus I dnt think it would have had the same effect if it were any other material.

     

    Thats not anyone I know in the pic. It is just one I found of a bride with the same dress

    I adored duchess satin and ended up with silky taffeta and really am not in love with it but I got it for a great price and well for 300 who gives a hoot (casablanca 1831)

    Mine is silk satin.  My seamstress actually commented that she was really impressed by the quality of the material, yay!  🙂

    Mine’s cotton, although it’s not a typical dress to start with.

    Silk Chiffon. It’s so floaty – I love the lightness of it.
