Monique, Monique, Monique… | Manolo for the Brides

Monique, Monique, Monique…


In the “just because it’s costly and has a designer tag doesn’t means it’s necessarily nice” category of gowns, we have this satin, chiffon, silk, and tulle number from Monique Lhuillier. Here’s a thought: When your key wedding gown embellishments outnumber your key wedding guests, you have a problem.

    Scarily enough, she looks pregnant in that gown.

    I don’t know – if you took all the embellishments off of the bodice, it might be really pretty.

    And pregnant brides need dresses too – there’s a challenge for you, Never! Pretty pregnancy bridal wear!

    Am I the only one that thought she was covered in facial tissue?

    Her dress like it has contracted a virulent skin infection.

    No, see, the fun thing is, at the reception each guest gets to snip off a tulle circle and wrap their own Jordan Almond favor.

    That dress…. I saw it flipping throuhg a magazine today and promptly pointed it out to my future mother-in-law as an atrocious dress.

    They say that rain on your wedding day is good luck, but you wouldn’t want it to rain with these dresses on!

    I love those toilet paper wedding gowns, Rob D.!

    And Kourtney, I’m on the case!

    I must be running a fever, because I truly like this dress. It wouldn’t be my first choice; but the 5-year-old in me is saying “Fluffy is good! Fluffy is pretty! She looks like Queen Frostine from ‘Candy Land’!”

    Come to think of it, it may be in part because the model wearing it is so lovely. Were it in pink, on a pouty quinceanera princess, I would have the dry heaves.

    It would make a really great quince dress, I think it is very cute. Sure it is a little poufy for a bride today, but it isn’t actually that unattractive

    Jenny, I agree with you. I’m the type of person who likes to wear solid colors with interesting textures. That said, I would wear it without the shrug.

    The shrug is the dress killer. I think it’s shape through the shoulders and that added bit of poufiness just overdoes it all. Without that, it could be really fun on the right body type, although I am SO SICK of strapless dresses. They make every bride of the past 5 years look like she’s wearing the same gown!
