SALUTE TO TAFFETA

 
The taffeta bridal gown is a great tradition and still one of the most widely used fabrics for bridal wear. If you've already been doing the salon hop you know its also trendy for bridesmaids and flower girls.  There's no mistaking taffeta:  It has that rustling and screeching sound when it moves and a polished, shiny look and feel.  It's been used for centuries mostly in special occasion wear and is known for its opulent luster.  Trendy once more mostly for full-skirted silhouettes, taffeta is the perfect option if you're wanting to add some elegance and romanticism mixed in with that good old tradition on your wedding day . . . .

Tafetta seems to suit gowns with a bit of 'structure' to them, am I right? Looks very elegant and polished.

I have to be honest, this is my least favorite material in wedding dresses.

Hey you should do a post on wedding dresses from other cultures (i.e. Indian)!
