I LOVE: 

  1. Ruching
  2. Interesting details (whether that be ruffles, flowers, beading, corset, lace)
  3. A-line 
  4. Sweetheart neckline

I DISLIKE: 

  1. Mermaid style gowns-Why pick a dress that you can’t walk or sit down in?
  2. Sheer bodice-I just don’t think the wedding dress should look like it is lingerie.

I have way more things that I like about wedding dresses than I dislike.

Subtle beading

Visible boning
Pickups
Lace

love  -pickups, dropped waist ball gowns  and details

Hate- mermaid gowns, taffeta, and tulle skirts.

Interestingly enough, my dress is dropped waist ballgown with organza skirt and lots of beaded details, so 2 out of 3 isn’t bad, ha ha.

I Love: 

1) Gowns with flowy movement (like chiffon) or that allow striding and dancing (like “not” mermaids haha),

2) Lace

3) Chiffon

 
I do not like:

1) shiny satin, or matte satin for that matter

2) pickups

3) much ruching or horizontal fabric placement

@bretonvirgniia:  Ha ha, I despise taffeta or tulle skirts, the main thing anytime I walked into a bridal shop was “I hate taffeta and I hate tulle skirts, so don’t show me anything with those, I prefer ballgowns with dropped waist but am open to trying the other styles.”

I looooooove:

1. Tulle ballgowns!!!!

2. Fabric details!

3. Buttons!

I dislike:

1. Sashes, some dresses really do look better without but it depends.

2. Mermaids that look too stiff or like a mop.

3. Sweetheart/scoop necklines, they don’t look good on everyone, they just don’t, especially if your girls aren’t the perkiest pair or your shoulders are relatively square/boxy, especially floppy boobs and square shoulders at the same time because then it’s like… omg look!…shoulders!….and someone fill out her dress!!!!

Yes, I’m flat chested and have squarish shoulders so f the sweetheart neckline…just f it! But some of you rock that sweetheart!

Love – Sweetheart necklines, open back, ivory/champagne

Dislike – black/red/blue detailing, blush and ballgown

Looks like some may not like my dress due to the bling…I’ll admit though, I hated the dress at first and refused to try it on.

@bretonvirgniia:  LOL I didn’t know how else to differentiate because some of her dresses are ok and some are W.T.F.-inspiring. I’m often yelling at the girls on SYTTD.

And oh how I would have loved a button closure dress, so classy and just adds something to the back of a dress.  Corsets are overdone and lingerie-esque but sweet jebus when my consultant started lacing me up I said yes to the dress instantly.  Hello FIGURE.  So I’ll keep my veil on most of the night in hopes the corset isn’t photographed a ton and people believe I just naturally look that amazing (hahahah! yeah right…)

@mstellah:  You look amazing in your dress and the veil makes me squeeee!  I agree with the colored detailing – not my style.
