When it comes to ball gown wedding dresses, we like to think the bigger the better. And a few Swarovski crystals don't hurt, either. Maggie Sottero's tulle-skirted ball gown, which was featured in Brides' August issue, has both volume and sparkle, making it an optimum choice for brides with a taste for glamorous, princess-y style. Sottero's dramatic design even features a lace-up corset back for the full effect of a once-upon-a-time gown.
