Tune in to GET MARRIED on Saturday, January 16, 2010 as The Wedding Guys give tips on the latest craze – RUFFLES FOR WEDDINGS! Check your local cable listings for an airtime near you!
For some of us who remember the old Ruffles Potato Chip commercial, ‘Ruffles Have Ridges’, we love to see the reinvented use of the ruffle in not just wedding gowns but also in wedding decor. For brides who are planning their wedding – ruffles are one of the hottest trends and bigger than ever. Initially it was the romantic flare of the gown by adding ruffles to the skirt or a one-shoulder bodice or a way to incorporate the jacket into a frilly bolero jacket for that strapless gown. This very flirty and feminine silhouette has now inspired other aspects of the wedding from the invitation, cake and yes even chair-back covers.
At first like with many detailed aspects of the wedding a bride will want to have them everywhere. However like any good thing, too much is a bad thing. So our advice is to look at your overall wedding vision and see how you can introduce the ruffle aspect into your design but as on a gown a ruffle is best used as an enhancement not a blanket treatment. Look at each stage of the wedding and develop one area that will be strengthened by the use of ruffles, if ruffles are ‘you’ as like other things, they are not for everyone.
