What do you think about this new sexy wedding dress trend?

July 5th, 2011

I’m not a fan. I think brides should be able to express themselves but I hate these new “sexy dresses”. With this new trend, dresses are cut down just above the woman’s nipples, usually backless down to the butt, sleeveless and strapless, high slits and some show tummy.

Ugh!!! I think you might look good if you are a profesional super model or a personal trainer for a living but the average person would not. Plus, whats the point of wearing white if you are going to be showing everything you got!

What do you think?
Add: It’s call the “sexy bride” trend. The gowns have all of these elements, low low low necklines, see through or entire tummy showing, slits with legs and backless with possible butt clevage all at once…..
I don’t mind the strapless and sleeveless trend myself. However, not everyone wants to wear that so I just wish there were more options.
Whoa…..some of you need to calm down. While I did express my dislike for this trend, I didn’t personally attack anybody in my question so I would apprecaite you not attacking me. Thank you.
Nonny Mouse……Whoa! I normally agree with the majority of your advice and think you are one of the best people here in this section. I seem to have hit a nerve with this one. Yes, I do like theme weddings. We have a difference of opinion there. All I did was ask a question about people’s opinion on a certain style of dress and shared my own. I did not personally attack anyone or anything like that. I don’t give people thumbs down just because I dont agree with them. I give people thumbs down when they answer a question without explaining their opinion, are rude, or jsut flat out wrong. I think everyone is entittled to their opinion, and it was opinions I was seeking with this question. I don’t think I have the right to tell anyone what kind of wedding they can have or can’t.

I feel like I have been very polite and well mannered on this website.
I thought so many of these answers were intresting and had valid points so I’m putting this up for vote. Thanks to all who voted.

    Some of them are okay, the low backs don’t bother me so much.

    What I HATE are the see-through dresses! Seriously, what’s the point!

  2. Kate says:

    it’s not my personal favorite style….

    I do hate that trend (also the trend where the dress look like they went through a shredder), I was even disappointed (when I went shopping last weekend) that most were strapless, I mean the LAST thing you need at your wedding is a pop out (especially if your bigger up top, like me). I don’t like the ones that show the stomach (like see through) or backless where you can see crack. I’m not saying you have to go completely covered showing no arms or anything but have SOME decorum and modesty especially on your wedding day.

  4. Bonnie D says:

    Got to agree. I like a classic look.

  5. Jay863 says:

    I’m not too fond of it. It’s your wedding day. You’re supposed to reveal your good to your husband and husband only. It’s a little indecent to show so much skin. A wedding is a sacred moment, and the bride should be beautiful but modest.

    i think if a girl works hard at taking care of her body, she should be able to wear something like that. its 2008, things change.

  7. Peek-a-Boo says:

    i think that is the kinda think ppl wud wear to a nightclub to get it on

    I think they are great
    looking good is part of confidence too
    you can look hot and still not look slutty
    as long as your heart is committed
    white was to show virginity and lets face reality
    very few virgins are walking down the aisle
    but by dressing tastefully hot you show your intented that you are a confident woman comfrotable with her own sexuality
    but now commited to them
    and that far more cooler than feigned purity

    I just don’t like wedding dresses that make brides look like trash. I mean, you are getting married! Do you think your new husband wants all of your wedding guests to see you dressed like that?

    Ugh. It’s gross.

  10. Naughty Angel 615 says:

    I agree with you. Your wedding day is a celebration of the couple’s love, romance, and beauty of making such an amazing commitment to one another, not for the bride to show off her body. Most weddings have grandparents and other older people there, and it’s not an appropriate place to be showing booty, stomach, or cleavage. Save that for the wedding night and honeymoon! I don’t have any issues with the strapless trend (like some people on here do) because if anything, shoulders and arms are the only thing you are really showing on your wedding day!

    I think its bit trashy, you want to be classy and leave something to the imagination. I am not into the sexy wedding dress trend.

  12. Bride, bridesmaid and MOH 2008! says:

    It seems to be “putting it all out there” a bit too much, if you ask me. We only get that one chance to be like a princess in a fairy tale, to be a real live, “old-fashioned”, lady. Why waste it wearing something that you would wear on stage in a strip club?

  13. Amy B says:

    Why can’t people learn that wearing white is not a symbol of purity?!?!?!

    It’s always been a symbol of wealth in weddings.

    Personally, if I had the body to pull it off, I’d consider some of the dresses. There’s nothing wrong with celebrating a woman’s femininity and beauty. But then, I’ve never felt that a person’s body was shameful and should be hidden behind a shroud like some people seem to.

    I hate the strapless, a-line dresses that all look alike, no matter who designed them. Some people are looking for something a little more unique. How does it affect any of you if a sexier dress is what they choose?

  14. Cupcake's Princess says:

    I think brides should be beautiful, not skanky. A wedding dress should have more cloth than a bathing suit. More cloth even than Grandma’s bathing suit…

  15. A Nonny Mouse says:

    Some how the ‘Hooker in White’ look doesn’t appeal to me…..but if a bride wants to look like she’s available for sampling, then so be it…after all if having theme weddings are the bride & groom’s chance to ‘ express themselves’, why can’t a bride express herself this way, reguardless of how trashy she looks…..just a thought.

    …and as all you theme people like to point out…it’s my wedding so what do you care…….oh, that only applies to stuff you like, and not stuff you don’t? Isn;t that a bit hypocritical?

    One can say it’s all a matter of taste…or what’s tacky to one isn’t tacky to another…why does that only apply to Theme weddings? If it applies to one, it applies to all…so you can’t stand up on your soap box and ponificate how it is your right to have any kind of wedding you want because you are expressing yourself and give thumbs down to critics, then turn around and say ‘but she can;t wear that ’cause it’s trashy IMO’…..well, who died and left you the Wedding Alpha & Omega……maybe sexy bride thinks your theme wedding is trashy…..just another thought….

  16. swthrt474 says:

    I guess the bride wants the whole wedding guest to get a turn on..lol

  17. PointsPrincess says:

    oh you guys need to calm down! who goes to the wedding and judges the bride’s dress?? shame on you. and if a woman is bold enough to wear something like that; chances are you wouldn’t be shocked; she probably wears stuff like that all the time. who cares?!

    you don’t like it, YOU don’t buy it then. its people like most of you who make free thinking brides re-think their dream dress.

    thankfully i didn’t consult YOU GUYS on my dress- a WHITE 1960’s mini dress with bell sleeves and lucite heels. yes, stripper shoes!!

    have fun with your ball gown and ringlets, conformists!!

  18. krinkn says:

    I think it is very tacky looking and generally very unflattering to the bride. Revealing all is rather boring for other people to look at…I really don’t want to see the bride’s appendectomy scar or be constantly reminded that she just bought breast implants.

    But some women dress like hookers in their every day clothes so why not look like a hooker while getting married LOL!

  19. CBT Princess says:

    I think all brides are beautiful – and different can be pretty. What I may not like may be someone’s dream look & just not ideal for a church wedding, but perfect for Vegas or some other setting. To each their own!

    I think a bride should wear what she feels beautiful in
