Oh my goodness, there are so many. I'm going to say the 1920s and 1930s, then the 1940s and 1950s.

I find the 80s very entertaining. MC Hammer pants anyone? :-)

This stumps me! I'm so surprised. I like elements from so many. Thinking...

At my wedding I wore a 1930s gown for the ceremony and a 1950s prom dress for the reception--those are my two favorites (although the 1930s gown was originally a nightgown, so...).

Victorian. I was born for lace and the ornate. No corsets though please.

I'm going to say ditto what Little Willow wrote.

It's the 1920s for me. I have a tuxedo from that era, and it's much more awesome (and more comfortable) than my modern one.

Of course, that's boys. For women's fashion, I think the 50s is probably better.

They all have their perks and downfalls. I'd have to go with the funky 80's. Bright and funky and fabulous. Good stuff.
