@Janaic88:  Have you seen the SYTTD episode where there are women that actually ask for dresses in which guests could see “crack” … as in butt crack.

@mchitt329:  Oh don’t get me wrong!! I actually really like corset back dresses…it’s the sheer bodice corset back dresses that make me puke a lil in my mouth. The combo of the bra-esque top, with the sheer, with the corset is just a bit too slutty in my opinion!

@bretonvirgniia:  Agreed!  I don’t dislike corsets, I’m wearing one – but gah keep it classy ladies.

@mstellah:  stunning! I left “bling” off of my list ’cause sometimes it’s fab and other times it is godawful. Yours is fab.

Ooooh…  I like:

  • Lace on tulle
  • Poofiness without drowning in it
  • Sweetheart necklines

I don’t like:

  • Buttons that go all the way down the train…  they are obviously not there for a purpose, just look silly to me…
  • See-through bodices – I mistakenly tried one on and was horrified!
  • Plain dresses without any details.

@musician32992:  

You should look at Justin Alexander 8557.

It’s ALL lace and was a main contender for me, but I didn’t feel like full lace matched my theme.

I LOVE

  1. lace
  2. princess seams
  3. soft sweatheart necklines

I HATE

  1. haltar tops, a lot… they seem so casual to me no matter how formal the dress
  2. see-through elements
  3. visible seaming (as in the fabric is so thin that you can see the seam allowance underneath

@mrsSonthebeach:  Oooh, I forgot about halters.  I love sleeves and straps, but not halters!  They are kinda casual, and also you can’t wear a necklace as easily with them, which would make me sad!

@musician32992:  I JUST realized your wedding date. By the time it comes around maybe it will be cheaper? They usually keep dresses around for quite awhile. I believe it’s under $1500, I know pronovias can get expensive, I love them too!

Oh I forgot an important dislike: when a fitted dress has a shift in fabrication od some kind of banding at the flare out point. I’m talking about way beyond a dropped waist. It looks like two dresses were cut up and pasted together. Like:

 

or this

And I don’t like lots of color, especially red. I do think that colored petticoats can be pretty or soft color appliques, but I don’t like serious color on a white-spectrum dress.
