    Do you have a picture? I’m not sure that I know what tiers on a dress look like.

    I have had a picture in my room as far back as I can remember of a tiered dress from a 1950’s collection from Chanel. It is very similar to a Pricilla of Boston dress that I loved. While I couldn’t afford the POB dress, I bought something just as classic and dramatic in keeping with the style of the 1950’s Chanel that I have always loved.

    First, remember that only people who are getting married even know what styles of wedding dresses are popular. Unless you or your sister/daughter/best-friend are getting married, you don’t care about wedding dresses!

    Second, EVERYTHING will be dated to a certain decade no matter how hard you try for it not to be. Your wedding pictures will look a little dated, that’s just how things go. Everybody’s yearbook pictures, wedding pictures, etc., look dated. (And it’s not just the dress either, it’s the tuxes, hairstyles, cakes, etc.)

    I have pretty much always loved tiered dresses.  I bought a tiered, circa 1952 prom dress explicitly because, “I want to get this out of my system now or I’m going to end up buying a tiered wedding dress.”  I guess 17-year-old me thought a tiered wedding dress wasn’t right for herself?  I still do love the look of tiered dresses, but they are getting a bit tired.  Hopefully the trend will die down a bit and they’ll just be another pretty alternative silhouette.

    So, when I got married the first time, which was 10 years ago, I hardly ever say a mermaid/trumpet silhouette dress…they just weren’t “in,” and any of the dresses that had that kind of silhouette looked like an 80’s throwback. If you wanted a slimmer line, you had to get a sheath (which is what I got, FWIW).

    Now? The mermaid/trumpet/fit-and-flare dress is everywhere!! It’s SO popular, especially with the tiers and ruffles at the bottom. I have to admit, I’m not really a fan of the tiers/ruffles with a mermaid silhouette. I don’t mind them as much on a fuller skirt, but even then, it’s just not my style, but I’ve seen plenty of brides on here who look stunning in that style.

    I don’t like tiers, almost as much as I don’t like pickups!

    I think tiers are lovely, even if my dress doesn’t have any.  I would encourage a friend to get whatever dress they are comfortable in and like how it looks, regardless of how trendy/not in style it is.  You’re getting married in the decade you get married in.  Looking back at your wedding photos will let you realize how far you’ve come and how long you’ve been together if there is something to date it by.

    I tried on a dress that I loved with tiers and it looked like quite a classic dress so I wouldn’t worry about it dating.
