    Hi Kelley!


    I too appreciate a little bit of sheen in a bridesmaid dress.....though the softness of chiffon is very very pretty.  Twobirds Bridesmaid, the classic collection, is made of a polyester-jersey blend.


    The texture is almost in between a chiffon and a satin.   It has a nice flow and drape to it like a chiffon..but with a little more sheen.  You might like it

      We went with chiffon for a few reasons...


      1. it's more light and airy for destinations

      2. it is way more forgiving of the figure than satin

      3. I like it better hehe :)

      We will be going the chiffon route... Unless my BMs suddenly demand to be in short dresses, and then we will move to something more structured. They originally wanted short flowy chiffon dresses but my ceremony location is windy and the last thing I need to worry about is a bunch of girls trying to hide their panties from the congregation! So either long chiffon (preferred) or short and more tailored/heavy weight dresses.

      Hey @diannaloren,

      So I was considering the two birds dress as well but was concerned about it being too thin. It looks like it might be an unforgiving material. Do you or any other brides out there know how thick the fabric is?
      @NixSpade, I am considering going with one of those convertible dresses for my girls but am concerned about the material. Any insights on how the material feels?
