Trend Alert: Spanish-Style Ruffles!

While layered skirts have been popular for a few seasons now, I feel like full on flemenco-styles are showing up all over the place.  We have every reason to be excited because these styles are so fun and feminine and were literally made to be danced and twirled in.  Another reason this style is so great is they are super flattering!  The key is to choose the best bodice style and skirt fullness level for your body type.  Petite brides are easily overwhelmed with too much fabric, so choose a style with a narrower silhouette.  Plus sized girls can choose a fuller style in order to balance out a larger torso. There are so many styles to choose from, so I went through and picked out some of the highlights to share with you!  ¡Me encanta!

If your going to do flamenco-style, you might as well get your gown directly from Spain!
Gown by Aire Barcelona; style "Bolonia"

Lightweight organza creates volume while remaining comfortable.
Gown by Demetrios; style "B156"

This gown is great for curvy brides because the dropped waist shows off curves, while the full skirt hides bigger hips.
Gown by Galina Signature; style "SWG354"

Another gorgeous gown directly from España.
Gown by La Sposa; style "Licena"

Perfect for petite brides, this sweet style is frilly without being overwhelming.
Gown by Vera Wang; style "Fairy Dust"

Gown by Essense of Australia; style "D1101"

Even princess brides have ruffled options!  You will definitely turn heads in this show-stopping gown.
Gown by Rosa Clara; style "River" (another Spanish designer)

It's pretty obvious where the inspiration for this lovely number comes from!
Gown by Blue by Enzoani; style "Barcelona"

Gown by Lazaro; style "LZ3050"

Another great option for plus-sized brides, and it's a great price too!

The epitome of luxurious fabric, silk satin and flamenco ruffles creates a winning combination.
