Taffeta is by no means one of the top wedding gown fabrics. That distinction goes to lace, chiffon, satin, tulle, and organza. So you will find very few brides wearing the fabric on the big day. It’s also not a popular choice of the bridesmaids and the mother of the bride. But having said this, it’s a gorgeous fabric that looks extremely stunning, even when you make a wedding gown out of it.
Taffeta As A Wedding Dress
There are so many gorgeous designs made with taffeta that I simply cannot take my eyes off them. Many designers, such as David’s Bridal, Justin Alexander, Stella York, Martina Liana, Enaura, Amaré Couture, and Kleinfeld among others have come out with their taffeta designs for weddings. The designers clearly think highly of this fabric. I agree. It’s one of my top choices too.

The Taffeta Fabric
Taffeta is a crisp, smooth, and plain woven fabric, which is made from cuprammonium rayons or silk. In Persian, the word means “twisted woven”. The fabric is used to make ball bridal dresses and also for stitching corsets. It is sometimes referred to simply as the “luxury fabric”. It is feminine and elegant. The texture makes it look attractive, and it is comfortable to wear the fabric as well, making taffeta a great choice for the brides.
