My gown was tafeta, and I don’t think it looks shiny in my pics ๐Ÿ™‚ Rock it Girl!

My whole wedding was outside, so I don’t have many of pics inside, but here is one!

I like taffeta, it’s comfy and in ivory it looks so creamy. It’s not as shiny as satin, which for that reason I can’t wear it. Admittedly it was ever so slightly shiny but that was because it was under quite a few artificial lights so it didn’t worry me.

@katiedee: I do think it’s artificial lighting as when I saw the dress I tried, on pre-owned site on brides outside it didn’t look shiny at all. Bees who’ve posted their dresses on this thread don’t like shiny either.

I went with taffeta too because I hated how the satin looked so shiny and dull in the pictures I look while wedding shopping.

I love my dress!

Mine is taffeta and I think it has the most beautiful sheen. Not shiny, but it just kind of glows. Can’t wait to wear it! I also think lighting makes a big difference.

@katiedee:  You look gorgeous in that dress!!! I wouldn’t doubt it for a minute. Your photographer will know how to work the lighting to banish the shinies. I think the flash on the point and shoot cameras is just so intense, it’s a little much. I have some pics like that too.

You look gorgeous and I love the flower details!
