It's ok if you think they're horrendous or something laugh out loud, this isn't a fan thread. Personally, I'm happy to see her working and fulfilling a dream she's had for a long time. But I'm about ready for her to take a break and get married already. giggling

I don't think I've ever been to a wedding with a flower crown bride. I prefer a beautiful veil.

I wouldn't say they are horrendous, but they just don't look high-end or expensive to me. I also think they look overdone with some of the design elements. I am more of a simple design fan so these would just never be something I would wear. And I probably couldn't because I don't think they are suited for some body types including my own.

I don't think her line with Maggie was supposed to be high end. She's been describing in the media as an affordable option for brides who aren't able to go all out and spend lots of money. I'm curious how much they cost.

I don't like all of Des's designs, but some I think are beautiful. The open back is kind of her signature and looks great on her and is very hard for a woman with large natural breasts to wear.

I actually love a simple flower crown for a wedding instead of a veil, but the big ones are not cute. I have seen flower crowns at fun outdoor weddings. The first one I saw was at an outdoor wedding in June in Austin, TX. I think it was a much cooler, literally temperature wise, to the veil on your neck all night. My first wedding I had a long veil and midway through the reception ditched it as it was so hot, I felt like I was suffocating.

They do seem to favour certain body types, I would not look good in one either.

Haha, since it's been brought up, saying I'm not a fan of the flower crowns is an understatement. They are horrible. Lol

As far as the dresses go, they confuse me. Initially I was happy to see what appeared to be a more conservative and mature dress line with higher necks and longer sleeves etc...but then I saw the backs and those are definitely not conservative and mature. So I'm confused by them. Hopefully she will find a client for them somewhere. It is nice to see a lower price point though. Wedding dresses are so overpriced these days.

A dress can be inexpensive but still look high-end. My old roommate got her dress for under $1000 but it looks like it costs at least 4 times that. It's all about fabric quality and choice. IMO, these look a little cheap and not something I'd want to wear.

Maggie Sottero is a mid-cost line so I guess Des' style would have to meld with that.  If I remember correctly you could get a gown in the 1-2K range with the majority in between that range. 
I liked the photo above.

Fair enough. It's hard to gauge quality in photos, but from what I've seen I think they're pretty. A few aren't my style though.

Des has said repeatedly that her theme was really ethereal and I see that in her dresses. They don't seem to be too expensive and they don't look it either. It seems like she was going for the soft look that really flows with movement. I think her dresses are pretty. I'm sick of the typical ball gowns and even though I've loved strapless forever and have always thought I would want that, I'm sick of that too.

In one of the latest pictures with Des in the middle of four models, I would gladly wear the dresses on either ends. On the one on the right, it's an open back, but not really considering there's a light fabric covering the back with really pretty details. I think they'd be perfect for a country wedding or even if the wedding is being held at a winery.

Of course there are some I don't like though, but that's with everything in regards to clothing.

I wouldn't do the flower crown, although that is very in right now. Ashley Tisdale looked beautiful with hers.

I'm happy for Des, she has quietly gone about her business, making her dreams as a designer come true. Some of them I like, some not as much. I love the open back dresses, if you can get away with it. I don't find them immature at all; I think that look is rather sophisticated and a little more conservative. I am sick of the trendy strapless, boob shelf dresses like Cat wore, and favor a more timeless dress like Ashley wore. I'm also not a fan of the key hole type dress that Des wore for (I think) her engagement party, but I'm old and a more conservative dresser. I think the flower crowns are appropriate if you're going for that boho style, but favor a traditional veil myself. Des will be a beautiful bride, I'm sure. I'm looking forward to seeing what she wears.

Ashley's dress is my all time fave of them all! I look forward to seeing what Des wears too.
