I hope you’re all having a good week… I’ve just started worrying a lot about things lately. The recent one is to do with my dress. It’s made of taffeta and I’m starting to stress about the fact that my dress is going to be totally wrinkled after I’ve sat down during the ceremony 🙁 We’re not going to have time to take photos of us until after the ceremony and I’m worried I’ll be a mess!! Anyone have experience with taffeta dresses? How bad does the material crease and is there a solution?? Arghh…
I hope I’m just being a bit paranoid!!!
P.S. It all feels so ridiculous because I chose the dress because of the material (it just looked so lush and I loved the glow it had) but now it’s the cause of my worries!!

@froydis: Don’t stress. Mine is silk and I think it will crease like hell, but I don’t care as I love it. I wouldn’t worry, I tried on a taffeta dress and found it so dreamy. The fact that you love it is what matters.

@CatyLady: Thanks. You’re right, I love the dress and that’s what should matter! I guess in the worst case scenario, I could ask the photographer to do a photoshop job…

@froydis: I just think other peoples dress’ must crease but you never look at their photos and think ooh that’s creased. I started worrying about things, like small things the closer I got to the date.

Taffeta creases a lot less than many bridal gown fabrics, so stop worrying! It will be fine. 🙂

I think you might have a little problem with this with the guest’s cameras, but the professional’s camera should use lighting/exposures that minimize the flaws. At least that’s what I’m hoping with my taffeta dress. 🙂

My taffeta dress has a slight natural “crinkle” to it anyway, so I doubt any real wrinkles or creases will show! I wouldn’t worry about it – nobody notices these things but us brides 🙂

I think Taffeta is one the least likely to wrinkle out of all the bridal fabrics. The added bonus is that unlike many of the silks and other materians Taffeta maintains its shape ie if you’re pulled in all tight at the beginning of the night the taffeta won’t stretch in tight spots and you’ll still be tight by the end (with the eception of a lace up back gown that will obviously give a little)

I agree taffeta doesn’t wrinkle as much as other fabrics and something I really liked when I bought my taffeta dress was its ability to hold its shape. You will probably not be worrying about little things like this with the excitement on the day, and a good photographer can adjust some small flaws. I’m sure it will look great!

My gown was made of taffeta and I didn’t notice any wrinkles in our pictures!

Sorry for not getting back to you until now. I’ve been putting my mind off wedding related stuff as I think over-thinking everything is the source of my worries!!
Thank you so much for your comments and putting my mind at rest. I really hope all us ladies (taffeta or not) will be crease-free and beautiful on our wedding days 🙂
