    I love satin. The smooth and structured feel and look of it. It is a very rich looking fabric.

    My dress is organza, silk, and satin, and I love all three. But if I had to pick one it would be organza. I love the frothy look of it.

    I love the whimsical appeal of organza – and it’s what I ended up choosing.

    My favorite is silky satin, but I don’t see it up there, unless it has a fancier name?

    I wanted a silky satin dress so bad- one made it into my top 2. But I ended up going with satin, I decided I liked the dress better overall.

    My dress is french tulle, its soft and flowy but has some body to it, love it.

    I also really liked tulle dresses and almost ordered this one:

     

    I didn’t like chiffon as its usually used for Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and I disliked the weight of satin gowns. I never found a lace dress I really liked however I’ve seen some WB that are just gorgeous.

    I love organza. My dress had a light, airy, and comfortable quality to it. For me, satin made me feel too shiny and heavy. In organza, I felt like a beautiful bride.

    Dotted Swiss!! I was absolutely obsessed with finding a dress with dotted swiss, but I had no luck. I wanted the Christos Maribel SO BAD, but couldn’t afford it in a million years.

    I also really like chiffon and English net.

    i have a taffeta gown, so naturally i voted for silk charmeuse.  lol.  satin in general is my favorite, and the way silk charmeuse drapes just makes me swoon…it IS a specific type of satin, after all.  if i could have found the gown i wanted in silk charmeuse, i would have been all over that like breakfast on DS’s face, lol.  as it is, i do LIKE taffeta (nice and crisp and shimmery and rustles a little when you walk!), even if it isn’t my favorite, and the dress is damn near perfect otherwise
