What are your thoughts on veering away from the traditional wedding dress?

The first link went to a dual picture dress, and I have to say I wouldn't wear either of them anywhere. The Vera Wang dresses are pretty, some I like some eh. I think a wedding dress is something personal and you should go with what you like, you will know it when you try it on.

My son recently got engaged and his fiancee asked me to go with to pick her dress. She went looking for a "fairy tale" dress, and found she didn't like any of them. She did find her dress that day, and it just seemed to be THE ONE when she put it on. Like I said, you'll know when you put it on.

I agree with ladyinpublic; it is really up to the individual bride to figure out what she likes the look of on herself, and also...what she won't be embarassed to look at in pictures until death or divorce do us part.

I don't care for either of the dresses in the dual photo.

My personal taste runs toward the more classic style, with simple lines and a kind of subtle elegance. But I enjoy looking at all types of wedding dresses, whether they are my style or not.
