Big 'n Poofy or Simple and Slim?


What do you guys think is more in style right now when it comes to wedding dresses? Something with a full skirt or something tighter on the body?

I had a tight strapless bodice but full skirt. When I saw some more fitted styles after the wedding I almost wished I'd tried one of those because I wonder how long the huge full skirt will last. But I loved my dress and I'm just so glad the styles are more classic now. Imagine how those poor 1980s or 90s brides must feel looking back!!

Depends on your body shape

When I went shopping for my wedding dress, I had very specific styles in mind and I was almost determined to buy a dress of a certain style. However, just for pure fun, I tried on dress of different styles and shape. I eneded up buying something that I never though I'd buy (a strapless dress).

If you want something in style, just start by flipping through wedding magazines or ask the store for some of the most popular styles. As for poofy vs slim, I really think it depends on your body shape. I tried on a mermaid style dress, very slim and long, but I am short and a bit chubbyish, so I looked horrible in the dress even though it looked great on the model. My strapless dress was fairly simple and it gathered up on one side, that style made my boobs looked big (teeheheeh) and my waist looked slim. (I used to think strapless dresses looked terrible b/c all the actresses who wore them looked so gross and skinny. I guess the problem wasn't with the dresses!!)

Anyway, don't be afraid to try different dresses on. It's a once in a life time experience and you may be surprised what you end up walking down the aisle wearing. Besides, dress shopping is a tedious tasks, so you'll need a good laugh at yourself once in awhile. :) (At the insistent of my girls, I tried on this giant oversized doily. We all got a good laugh out of it, including the 20 other ppl in the store.)

tea length

I'm getting married in October outdoors so I think I'm going to go for a simple tea length dress. The event is casual to the max, so I think it will be perfect. I'll be trying on some dresses while I'm in OH for Christmas so I can be sure tea length is really what I want.

tea length?

Interesting term. I've never heard of that. What is tea length?

A tea length dress falls above the floor but below your knee ... mid-calf. Kind of like a 1950s sock-hop length dress! ;-)
