Here are 5 of the latest Bridal trends for 2011/2012:
1. Royal Wedding inspired.
After Will and Kate tied the knot in April 2011, designers have been designing their interpretation of a “Royal” inspired wedding gown. To get this look, try dresses with fuller skirts/trains and smaller waist. Also try longer sleeves with simple details.
2. Blush Colored Dress.
A new and rising trend for wedding dresses is to add some color and romance. Gwen Stefani definitely took the risk with her hot pink-dipped bridal gown for her wedding that was fun and still classic at the same time.
Many designers are offering their bridal collections in taupe and a blush
pink. To achieve this look, try to stick with a simple fabric such as taffeta or silk. The color alone will have the shock factor and you don’t want crazy designs or bows to make your dress look too busy.
3. Subtle prints.
Another interesting trend in bridal gowns is having slight detail or subtle print to your wedding dress. It’s a unique way for a bride to be traditional yet show off some style within her gown. If you decide to go with this style, pick out bridesmaid dresses that would compliment the design on your gown with color.
4. Illusion /Lace Sleeve.
This type of dress is really fashion-forward and not shy. The design gives an illusion that your arms, back, or neck is covered up for a romantic and classic but sexy bridal look. Since these dresses usually have a lot of detail, limit the amount of jewelry you wear in order to keep the focus on you the bride.
5. Fabric Feathers/Floral design.
If you’re really looking for a dramatic dress, this style is for you. Organza/Tulle feathers and pop-up floral designs really give your dress character and make a statement of its own also. Most of the fabrics used for these dresses are light but may actually be a little heavier than a classic wedding dress. Since this style also is very couture, feel free to add a black sash or bright colored shoes, but don’t over-do your make-up or hair.
Most of all, you want to feel Beautiful and Comfortable in any dress you choose! Bring images when you check out a bridal gown shop and talk to a Consultant about what style you like and what forms could best accentuate your body type. And have fun!
