Love illusion necklines.

Haaaaaaaate belts/beaded sashes. Can’t WAIT for that trend to die. My sister wanted to add a sash to her bridesmaid dress, and it was the one thing in the whole wedding planning process that I put my foot down for.

Love lace, spaghetti straps, and lace up backs 

Hate ruching, feathers, and sheer bodices (looks too much like lingerie imo)

Love :-  illusion necklines and backs, plain classic fabrics, different  neck styles  like halter or high cut, many but not all ball gowns.  

Hate:- See-though corset bodices ,  blingy belts  (especially on all-lace dresses) , hugely plunging  necklines, skintight mermaids designed only to display.

Love –> lace / long sleeves / pearl beading / low cut backs or illusion backs / a long train / stretchy materials / tulle / bows 

Dislike –> sashes / shiny materials / pick ups / see through bone showing corsets / 3/4 sleeves / empire waists / hoops under skirts / pleats 

Hate –> yellow tone ivories. (Makes me think the dress hung in a room full of smokers for years) /  Anything asymmetrical / extreme plunging necklines (too much cleavage) unless you’re an A cup, it just looks too raunchy / those plastic beads that reflect rainbow colors

Love: illusion necklines/backs/sleeves, 3D appliqués, flowy soft tulle

hate: pickups, sweetheart necklines, corsets on me just because they remind me of a sweet sixteen dress and I look younger than my age so that doesn’t help me at all
