This may sound like a dumb question, but I tried on wedding dresses for the first time yesterday, and the dress I fell in love with is made out of taffeta, and my mom was taking pics of the dresses - the dress looks really shiny in pics - and I don't know if this is just because of her camera. Has anyone else had a dress made out of this material and how did the professional pics come out? I don't want it to look cheap.

I was surprised when we went to look for bridesmaids dresses that my girls picked out iridescent taffeta. It's a little weird b/c it is so shiny. A lot of the colors it comes in I think look weird, but white would be fine. I wanted light green dresses for the BMs, but ended up going with dark pink b/c of the material. Post a pic of the dress so we can see how it looks.

My dress is taffeta, but I haven't gotten married yet and I don't have the dress yet. The dress I tried in the store was a bronze color and it had more of a matte look to it and sort of iridescent, but I ordered it in white. I'll let you know once it comes in. I've seen white taffeta and it didn't look shiny, but it may depend on the dress too, I hope its not shiny!

My favorite Maggie Sottero is Taffeta. I ended up not getting it because I found something else that I loved even cheaper, but I do recall how light weight it was... the second time I tried it on, I realized the material almost felt like a shower curtain...if you ran your finger across it, it made a noise.

 

I still loved the dress and how it looked, but thought it felt odd... There was another taffeta that you could get it in, empress or something like that, but I wasn't able to see that fabric in person and I believe it was more expensive.

 

There is a sheen to the dress, but maybe a photographer can chime in...

I actually ended up buying a different dress off of e-bay, but I LOVE this dress.. I was a size 12 at the time I tried it on and with the corset, felt/looked like a 6..

is it bad that I still think about this dress after getting a different one? lol

sorry for the hijack!

Angela, I did the same thing, and thats why I ended up going back and buying the MS dress I wanted, so I have to sell my ebay one.

 

I don't mind some sheen in my pics, I just don't want it to be extremely shiny!!!

 

here's mine, but I ordered it in white, its rhapsody taffeta
