Wedding Gown Trends
Royal-inspired vintage styles: Victorian-era influences are making high necklines, lace, and embroidery current ways to externalize the inward romance you feel.
Bare shoulders: Strapless and sleeveless gowns show off your shoulders. So do halter, off-the-shoulder, and drop-sleeve styles.
Embellishments: Lace, embroidery, and floral appliqués remain eternal favorites. Huge statement bows emphasizing your waistline also slenderize your figure visually. Beading adds ornate patterns and shimmering accents.
Hemline variations: Short wedding dresses include traditional cocktail length, which ends above your knees. Straight, simple styles may suit petite brides’ small frames better than long, voluminous gowns. Search for body-hugging sheaths and minimal A-line silhouettes. Or make a flirty impression in an A-line cut with a fuller princess skirt. Asymmetrical hemlines that go from short in the front to long in the back are striking possibilities.
Fabrics: Sheer, flowy chiffon and light, airy tulle look beautiful on happy brides.
Alternative colors: Pastel shades competing with classic white and ivory include always-feminine gentle pinks and equally soft sky blues. Details that contrast with classic wedding white, ivory, and champagne are going bolder. Consider black lace appliques, embroidery, trim, sashes, and bows.
Popular Bridesmaid Dress Elements
Necklines: Low-cut creations accentuate the décolletage area. Or try illusion necklines with sheer materials like tulle, chiffon, or lace that allow glimpses of cleavage.
Straps and sleeves: Dresses that feature one- or two-shouldered straps with or without draped sleeves evoke ethereal Greek styling. Fashionable long sleeves in delicate lace or thin, billowy fabrics like chiffon set romantic moods.
Decorations: Sequined materials enhance bridal party dresses with sparkly disco flares. Beading adds grandeur to various areas like necklines, waists, and hips. Wide sashes emphasize waistlines elegantly. For a little extra pizazz, look for those accents in contrasting colors with bows, flowers, beading, or brooches.
Lengths: Long floor-length evening gowns summon gentle and feminine impressions. Mini and knee-length dresses flatter slender women with long legs.
Fabrics: Lacy dresses express tender gracefulness. Select softly flowing chiffon for an innocent yet romantic touch. Translucent materials form light and airy visions. And radiant fabrics help bridesmaids look glamorous.
Colors: Get creative with limitless color choices and combinations. Mix or match pastel snow and cream shades, bright hues, shimmering metallics, or dark casts. Feminine pinks level skin tones visually, drawing out velvety smooth complexions while minimizing fine lines. Water-inspired tints like turquoise suit mermaid silhouettes beautifully. Black bridesmaid dresses offset traditional white wedding gowns elegantly. Deep green alternatives to severe black look sophisticated yet fresh, arousing harmony and peace.
Veils: Want a traditional finishing touch? Wear a sheer, delicate wedding veil from short blusher to extravagant cathedral lengths.
Headpieces: Top off your bridal or attendant gown with an exquisite rhinestone, pearl, or crystal tiara, headband, comb, barrette, or hairpins. Other enchanting headpieces feature flowers or feathers.
Fancy wraps: Soft chiffon, lace, and tulle capes cover arms with graceful lines that replace conventional veils often. Wraps also protect bare shoulders from sunrays during outdoor ceremonies.
Gloves: Modern women are wearing dainty gloves as stylish bridal accessories. Short versions that expose your fingers make your ring exchange more luxurious. Sheer lace, transparent tulle, and three-dimensional embroidery are romantically elegant alternatives to opaque options. Most brides choose white or ivory gloves to match their wedding dresses. But delicate tints like pink and neutrals like beige are becoming popular.
Jewelry: Add bling or contrasting colors with dazzling fashion jewelry to adorn ears, necks, wrists, fingers, or ankles.
Shoes: Wedding footwear ranges from basic white flats to rhinestone-encrusted pumps to glitter-covered stilettos.
