Don’t be afraid of taffeta, especially if it is silk taffeta.  It’s very light and airy.

Here is my gown. It is 100-percent silk taffeta.

Mine wasn’t silk taffeta, but it is taffeta (the polyester/nylon kind) and I still think I looked ok on our wedding day.

@sherryberry:  Thanks! Can you post a pic of your dress? It’s likely that it won’t look shiny in your pro pics.  Satin can also be very shiny, depending on what type of satin it is.  I’m sure you will be fine.

@Brielle:  Thanks!

@sherryberry:  I think your dress is lovely! Pro photos always look better, so I don’t think you’ll have the shine problem. πŸ™‚

@sherryberry:  I would not stress out over those pics, especially the bottom one, which appears that it was shot with a cell-phone camera/flash into a mirror. That’s a whole lot of reflection going on there.  You pro pics likely will turn out beautifully.

Mine is polyester tafetta. I had to dig though my pictures, but these were the “Shiniest” I could find.

 

I was dancing. WHAT of IT? πŸ˜‰

My dress has a Taffeta shine to it, it is why I bought it. I am having a summer wedding and wanted a dramatic, yet light dress to enjoy my summer day in! I love the fabric of taffeta. <3 

Here are some of my pictures:
