Sheath dresses although I love some of the Jenny Packham dresses I have seen on bees.

Disney dresses, dresses with pickups, and mermaids (I dont understand why every body type tries to wear them!), and satin dresses

However, I have seen all of the above types of dresses on people on WB and they have looked great especially the mermaid style dresses.

Super shiny fabric! And empire waists.

I hate trumpet or mermaid style. Don’t know why, just think they look awfully unflattering on everyone.

There are a lot of styles or specific elements that I don’t care for, but the only time I ‘hate’ a dress is when a bride looks uncomfortable in it.   Even if I would otherwise think it’s a beautiful dress, I’m not going to like it if the bride seems uneasy in it because it’s too small, or she can’t walk, or she’s afraid it’ll fall down, or any other reason.

@gelaine22:  Yes they are not my faves for wedding dresses because they hide all your curves!  My dress has pickup though, so I’m committing an even worse faux pas! 😀

Crumb catchers! 

Not sure if its the actual look that I don’t like, or the visual I get of wedding cake crumbling into a brides bosom :/

@gelaine22:  You are getting married on my birthday!

 

Oh and I forgot that I am not a fan of wedding dresses that have tiers (like tiered ruffles). or 1-shoulders (symmetry freak).

There are definitely elements that I really dislike–satin in most instances, pickups, sheer pieces, halter tops (except that Jim Hjelm one), straight across necklines, LOTS of things going on, etc.

There was a bride at the shop the same time I was picking out my dress, and she tried on this awful, bright white satin, halter top, pickup skirt dress and her family was like, “OHMYGOD THAT IS AMAZINNNNGGGGG,” and I really, really wanted to tell her NO. She looked horrid and uncomfortable/unhappy in it, like she’d walked straight out of the 90s (her hair and makeup didn’t help,).

Pickups.  My least favorite aspect of a dress.  I even thought I’d like some dresses with pickups but once on, nope no way.  Also, I don’t like cheap tafetta.  It’s shiny and has its own soundtrack as you move.

Bad 90s prom cut dresses (strapless, straight across, with that skirt with an off-center panel)

Empire waists

Mullet dresses!
