This season unique wedding gowns are better than ever! Who would have known that long sleeves would be the #1 wedding gown trend? Maybe it was Kate Middleton, with her gown design by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen's fashion house, who changed the minds of brides to start new trends!
The top ten wedding gown trends are as follows:
1. Long Sleeves -
Covering up has never been so couture. Sleeves in every fabric- from sheer lace to structured silk they are undoubtedly the most refined look of the season.
2. Feathers -
Fanciful Feathers are big on texture and light as air, even in the form of a voluminous ball gown! You never have to walk down the isle again!
3. Peplum Skirts -
The top silhouette this season is the peplum skirt. This lady like ruffle gives the illusion of curvy hips, narrow waist and so much more! What bride wouldn't want that? There is so much to love about it.
4. Tiaras -
Kate Middleton isn't the only bride that is rocking a tiara this spring! This beautiful accessory can make any dress feel like a princess gown.
5. Silver Embroidery -
Forget the sequins and crystals. This season, shimmer made its mark in the form of metallic thread!!! Whats not to love? It popped up as delicate embroidery and sheer lace appliques on every silhouette.
6. Blush -
Honeysuckle may be Pantone's color this year, but it's all about the blush on the bridal runways! Pretty shades of this subtle pink from ballet slipper to bubble gum. Think pink!
7. Straps -
Strapless necklines not for you? Thats okay! Brides all over the world are rocking gowns with straps this spring! Offering a sophisticated look, also lots of additional support. Straps have definitely secured their way onto the bridal scene this year.
8. Bows -
It dosn't matter how you wear your bows! No matter how you tie them - structured, oversized or floppy - bows are a favorite at the moment!
9. Spirals -
Traditional with a twist, dramatic cascading swirls give even the most basic silhouette a modern spin! I personally love this! Its definitely huge!
Romantic blooms will always be a designer favorite, but this season whats loved is the way nature's most whimsical embellishment - butterflies - landed on wedding gowns just in time for spring!
So brides, when you go shopping for YOUR wedding gown what specific things are you looking for? Sheer lace sleeves, straps or just want to add a tiara to make you feel like a beautiful princess?
