Trending in wedding dresses for 2011 are ruffles. Ruffles haven't been in fashion since the 80's and 90's, and today's ruffles are different in many ways.
Today's wedding dresses are figure flattering, sculptured and have more defined beading and details and less foo foo. Compare today's dresses to the 80's and 90's confections at the end of the post.

Divine design, this dress is so regal and amazing! By Eve of Milady
The details on this one are just jaw dropping. Eve Muscio is the designer, I love her designs and her dresses keep getting better and better.
Essence by Bonny Bridals, #8008, Loving this dress! Its sexy and sweet at the same time and styled for today's bride. This dress reminds me of old Hollywood glamor. HOT!
Lots and lots of ruffles by Precious Formals. From their couture collection, Posh Brides. This dress was previewed in London where it got rave reviews. It definitely reminds me of a English countryside wedding.
Now lets go back in time to the 80's and 90's where San Martin bridals ruled supreme with their organza filament ruffles and big butt bows. See the difference?
