I would go with taffeta so you wouldn’t overwhelm with the bling.

My dress is matte satin, so it has the heft without the shine.

Personally, I would go with the satin. I don’t know if it would be an option or not, but you could have the gown made in satin with a taffeta overlay.

Personally i’d go with the taffeta as I find the shine of satin too much.

I think if the dress were in satin it wouldn’t “poof” as much and the fabric will lay flatter as it is heavier.  I vote for taffeta.

I would go with taffeta. It is so light, but you can still get the sturdiness without the heft and shininess of satin.

I’m not a taffeta fan.  Love satin.  But I’m not sure, satin may be too heavy for this type of dress.

What Kitty Kat said.  I love satin myself, but this dress looks like it wants to be more taffeta like in lightness!

I like the airiness of the taffeta. I think the satin might be too much with all the detailing

My dress had pickups and rouches and is made of satin and it is amazing. I love the luxury of satin and the beautiful sheen to it. I think it’s more of a personal choice because we all have different taste. I don’t like taffeta for the same reason you mentioned above. Plus it’s loud and sounds like paper rubbing against paper when you walk. I vote for satin, you dress will look amazing either way though.

Taffeta feels and ‘scrunches’ like a comforter, I find it bulky and it sometimes feels cheap …hehehehe….just my opinion.  Satin has always felt more  luxurious to me.
