    Oooh, I love the last one! I have pretty elaborate tastes, too. I think I toned it down a (bit?) for the wedding, though!

    I love some elaborate gowns, SO does not at all.

    I will probably not be getting one…

    I also like elaborate ballgowns…but in a completely different way than you.  I don’t care for crystals and rhinestones.  To me, rich fabrics and draping make ballgowns elaborate and gorgeous.

    Interesting how we picture completely different things from the same phrase.

    Woah, all the dresses you posted have way too much going on for my tastes. I prefer simpler styles, especially on ballgowns.

    My wedding dress will be pretty elaborate in my opinion.  I thought I wanted something simpler, but everytime I tried something like that on, it just looked really boring on me.

    Allure C186

    I also tried on the Allure C170, but in the end, it was just a bit too much for me.

    I love all of these dresses. When else in your life could you pull off such an elaborate dres!?

    Here is the dress I chose. I think it’s pretty elaborate. I will be substantially altering the lace top blouse part, though.

    @EffieTrinket:  I love your dress! I’m also wearing a ball gown with lace sleeves. I knew all along I would not go strapless for my wedding.

    @MzJynxie: I love big ballgowns but I don’t like any of those. Like

    @BooRadley: I prefer them to be more about lush fabrics than throwing every embellishment going on a big skirt and fitted bodice.

    @EffieTrinket: Your dress is stunning. Very Grace Kelly!

    My dress was a big-ish ballgown but all about the shape and fabric.
