THE ART OF THE RUFFLE

Part of the joy of a wedding dress is wearing elements of design uncommon in every day life. The ruffle taken to this level is certainly a shining example . . .There are so many different kinds of ruffles, the most popular now can be anything ruched to intricately gathered skirts rolled into florals. As you've probably figured out ruffles can be worn head to toe on bodice, sleeve, skirt or train. And don't forget those finishing touches like shoes, purses, gloves, hats and veils layered in ruffles. Below are just a few treatments celebrating variations on the ruffle.

Hi Amy! These dresses are just dreamy! You know I love ruffles and tulle and all things feminine, and these are sweet enough to melt! The Taylor Swift dress is simply amazing, it's so full and lush ... and Elie Saab is always the king of creating magical gowns! Other favorites are Monique Lhuillier and Marchesa ... all so gorgeous! Thanks so much for your sweet comment on the Spade post, sweets! Have a wonderful week ;) ~xoSM

These are all gorgeous wedding gowns! I especially love the one Taylor Swift is wearing!

Ketubah Designer said...

Nice collection! Have you heard about Ketubah? As a Filipina it's interesting to learn that besides the perfect wedding ring, the couples needed to choose the right Ketubah Designs for their Jewish wedding ceremonial. This piece of document is like a contract that will be signed by the couples in front of the witnesses. This is like a bond of responsibilities, truthfulness and love for each other and their future children.

Placing ruffles on your dress can make it look more beautiful because you can add more volume. There are many different styles you can apply in order to make yours unique.
