Personality all the way. I saw that pink Pnina dress that you’re talking about, and obviously it stuck in my mind, but I remember thinking, god that’s totally awesome! I hope that when I’m older I feel the same way.

I think beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Something that I may think looks amazing may make someone else barf.

So with that said, no, I don’t think certain dresses are made for certain bodies or ages.

I think its more about the personality. I have always thought certain body types would only look good in some dresses but SYTTD has really opened my eyes that any body shape could look good in different types of dresses. It depends on how the woman carries herself. I think no matter how old a bride is, it’s her wedding and she deserves the dress she has been dreaming of. Anyone deserves to look and feel bridal on their wedding day, regardless of their age or shape.

Honestly, I feel like a woman can be the bride she wants at all ages. Dreams of being a princess don’t stop after 30, 40, or any age. If your face lights up when you try on a dress, then that is your dress. I understand your opinion though, it wouldn’t feel right for me, but isn’t a woman’s wedding day the one day she can do what feels right for her? And the hell to anyone else LOL!

omg I know the episode you are talking about with the pnina!

I think dresses are designed with specific figures in mind- do you remember the episode with the really overweight girl insisted on being in the pnina mermaid and it looked terrible and all her family hated it…but she still bought it?  She still looked excellent in the A-lines she tried on, she just really wanted that specific mermaid!!   Regardless some figures look great in just about any ol’ dress.   I think the age factor is more of a mental aspect.  It seems weird to see an older woman in a ballgown because we just never see it.  I think if a woman waited a really long time to get married and she still feels all young and princessy then more power too her! I don’t really like it when older women are specifically trying to look younger by dressing like a little girl though…that kind of creeps me out.  I think we all had that friend in middle school who’s mom tried to ask us where we bought our skirts- it was weird then and it’s not super comfortable now =/

I think it depends on personality. People watching may think it’s ridiculous, while the people close to you may love it. I usually tell my friends my honest opinion about their fashion choices for big events. I’m not mean about it, but I would rather them know. But I don’t think I can make a big category like, “Big people shouldn’t wear mermaids”. I don’t know every big person in the world, and many of them I’m sure rock mermaids.

@MrsNeutrino: I thought she looked great! You could tell she really loved it.

My Mom talked me out of a dress that she thought was “over the top”. However, it wasn’t, it just wasn’t really traditional.  A few months after the wedding Darling Husband said, I loved your dress, but I’m surprised you wore something so traditional and not something that had a little more pizazz like you.

So I really wished I didn’t let anyone influence me. So no, I would hope no one would tell me what they thought and would just be happy that I loved it.

@kperry3:

I feel like it is appropriate because the bride says so!!! LOL, I’m kidding. I don’t believe a bride can literally do what she wants to do just because it is her day. However, when it comes to the dress…I’m going to say YES to the dress! That one thing is aaaaaaall bride. It is not about making your guess comfortable, it is not about being convienient (sp?) for your family, it is the one thing where you shouldn’t have to consider anyone else or society at large.(Except if you are not paying, then those are budgetary issues)

@MrsNeutrino:

ahaha! My fi sits with me (sometimes for only about 5 minutes) when I’m watching say yes to the dress and usually just tears the girls apart.  It terrifies me sometimes but luckily I’ve never seen a dress like mine on the show <whew>
