    I am wondering what materials were used on some of your dresses. The one from Gianinar is the Maggie Sottero Sasha dress which is made of taffeta. Mine is being made of poly taffeta as opposed to silk taffeta (I didn't want to spend the extra $250 to upgrade). I hope that I am making the right decision! Any thoughts?? Help! I am starting to feel a little stress!
    i don't have any personal advice for you, but i am looking forward to hearing the answer to this question. that is the one reason i am a little hesitant about Duosheng, their fabric looks crazy and shiny. the dress i would really like is silk taffeta, and i really want to know if the poly taffeta is nice.

    can we see the photos of your dresses?

    good luck!

        Hey girls, my dress from Gianinarbridal was the poly taffeta since I couldn't see spending the extra money for silk taffeta either. I had NO problems with the material and thought it was beautiful. My dress is in this thread somewhere but I thought i'd post picts anyway so nobody has to search.

        I tried to use pictures that showed the dress in all different kinds of lighting so you can get an idea of what the material is like. Sometimes it's a bit shiny, sometimes not. I'm really happy I didn't spend the extra money because i'm not sure how the silk taffeta could have been better. My biggest concern was that it would be like davids bridal dresses and be really loud with a tent/sleeping bag texture but it wasn't at all. Hope this helps!

                Luciel and KJT both your dresses are gorgeous! I really want to use gianinar but they finally responded today and told me they can't make my dress in linen and lace like it is originally they can only make a version of it in satin and lace. Don't know what to do. Duosheng can make it in linen and lace but it'll cost close to $500, more than I wanted to spend on a TTD. Decisions, decisions!

                  this is very helpful! i hadn't thought of the noise factor of the dress. i think i am leaning towards gianinar now. i would like to see pics of the silk taffeta though..the poly still looks a little shiny, but i know taffeta is pretty shiny to begin with. thanks for posting!

                      Gianinar has been fantastic to deal with. The longest I have waited for a reply has been about 12 hours. Really great correspondence.
