LOVE: 

1. sweetheart neckline

2. A full skirt of some sort, be it mermaid, fit & flare, A-line..whatever! Just something with a little oomph since you don’t normally get to do that!

3. One shoulder. I know some will say it’s going out of style but (not to sound all emo) I have loved it since before it was popular and I still think it looks awesome when done right. I also really love the look of blinged out straps and sleeves that are starting to come around. I had looked for a “brooch-y” strap for my own dress but they weren’t as big a year ago. 

 

DISLIKE: 

1. Tons of pick ups

2. as a PP said, the corset-looking ones that have a see-through bodice

3. Too much going on, as in ruffles and sparkles and flowers and satin and lace and beading….all in one dress. Just a little overwhelming

These are all just my opinion, though. Put any of these things on the right person and it can look fabulous!

@MASPA:  I hate taffeta as well, and then I found my dress… and the top is taffeta. I was REALLY worried when going to try it on, but since the rest of the dress is so soft and flowy, I can deal with the top. Haha.

I LOVE :

Soft and floaty tulle skirts

– Lace (chantilly lace, not the re-embroidered type)

– Illusion necklines

 

I DISLIKE :

– Mermaid style (looks very restricting to me)

– Shiny fabrics like satin (usually just looks heavy and stiff)

– Silver or gold colored embellishments (a.k.a. bling?)

LOVE:

1.) Lace, especially lace with sleeves.

2.) A-line skirts and natural waists. It just seems like the most flattering and the most ‘natural’ for a wedding gown. I don’t know if that makes any sense, lol.

3.)Modest dresses. They can be absolutely stunning, and at the end of the day, you’re at a wedding, not a red carpet.

HATE:

1.) Mermaid. They’re uncomfortable to walk/ sit in, and I’m pretty sure that they’ll look dated. Mermaid styles also sometimes look oddly disproportionate to me.

2.)Bling. I’m sure there are plenty of ladies who disagree with me. I just think it can so easily become gaudy/tacky. Just my personal taste.

3.)Overly revealing dresses: Why do you want to flaunt every single asset that you have to all your guests, especially if you’re getting married in a church? That’s just not respectful IMO.
