While I won’t lie and say I think all styles look good on everybody, I will say that most of my dress opinions are totally dependant on the bride and the dress I’m a big believer in dresses working with your silhouette, as the bridal experts say. So it has nothing to do with a number on a scale and ruffles are beautiful on a LOT of gals!
So ya..just depends on the dress and the bride. Everything I’ve seen in this thread looks oddly flattering on everybody LOL.

@BillysBride2011: <= This exactly. I tried on an Allure ruffled gown in a size 8 (which is four sizes too small) and loved it! It didn’t make me look any bigger anywhere. I just wanted something that I thought was a little more formal.
Colour or bling depends on your preference. I’m all for the sparkle, so I think a blingy belt would be nice. Or, perhaps some beaded detail just under the bust.

@steene222: It looks like that skirt is asymmetrical right? If so, I’d lean more towards a nice sparkly brooch rather than a sash. I think it would work better with the asymmetry.
I agree that your photos would be great in a bridal blog or something! You two look like a great couple.

@abax: Your dress is gorgeous! What designer/style number is it, if you don’t mind?

It needs to be altered a lot (pulled tighter in the stomach and bust, and shortened) but here’s mine!

You ladies look beautiful… I wore a ruffled Bonny Unforgettable dress no pettiskirt and although it was a bit heavy, I felt great and comfortable in it all night.

@saffy: This dress is beautiful. I so so wanted to be able to get it, but my store didn’t carry a size I could try on, and I just couldn’t risk buying it without trying it on first. Talk about regrets!
Looks amazing on you!
