Skirting Tradition with Tiers & Ruffles
Are you craving a long, traditional skirt, but want to spice it up with a little flirtation and fun? Tiers and ruffles can add movement and panache without weighing you down by achieving the volume of a princess gown, but without all of the extra material. Tiers are best paired with ballgown or A-line silhouettes, while ruffles look best with a full skirt or mermaid silhouette. No matter what you do, make sure to take an extra twirl on the dance floor. You owe it to the dress … and to your photographer.
It’s all in the details is spot on for this new trend walking down the aisle. While an open back is always beautiful, we love the idea of a design element trailing down your spine and elongating your figure. From illusion lace to jewelry and accessories, the trickle-down effect adds a sexy touch to your bridal look.
