I was watching a new episode of the Castle TV show last night and they have Becket in this truly awful wedding dress. It just made me want to vomit. Anyone else have the same reaction?

It felt like two dresses were combined between a sheath and a ballgown. The poof at the hips was off setting because it was out of place to me and the color of the poof and the main gown were different! Also the beading on the sleeves seemed odd.

For reference:

That looks like a Barbie gown or Disney princess gown (which would look lovely on a toy or on a cartoon figure), made life-size.

Zac Posen now has a "for David's Bridal" line:

http://www.refinery29.com/2014/02/61...bridal#slide-1

I wonder if big name collabs like this is the reason for PoB being closed.

haha! I do think that they look nice. I am not sure that it will be quality though. And for the price point you can easily get a nicer brand bridal gown.

Therein lies the key with DB. You're paying a lot, for cheapy replicas of Vera/Zac/etc. designs when for that price point, you could get something nicer from an actual brand.

Exactly! Even if you can't get it brand new, you can always look on the pre-owned sites.

Through size 26? Good gravy. Zac Posen never has designed to make a plus-size woman look good, and he still isn't. Not even a plus MODEL would look good in a strapless fitted mermaid gown. Straps and body-skimming fabrics, ladies. That's how to look awesome as a 26.

Huffington Post had some risque' wedding dresses on their website. I don't know how to link in but they were terrible. Who in gods name would wear something like that?
