Popular Wedding Dress Trends Influencing 2012 and 2013 Brides
Color: No longer as brides are we bound to the traditional, virginal white palettes. More often are we seeing a little more of the bride’s flare. From their bridesmaids, to their groom and his groomsmen, and now to their dress, brides are incorporating color all the way through. With Crimson being the most popular pick, tradition has gone out the window and bold and beautiful has taken its place! Portrait Backs: With a more modest approach, portrait backs draw attention with delicate embroideries, lace frames, sheer panels of tulle, and peekaboo keyholes that take us back. This trend softened the focus on bare skin and put an emphasis that we are not just a one- dimensional bride! Peplums: Borrowing a popular silhouette from the couture runways, peplums add a new dimension of style using both structured and softly draped shapes at the hips. However, bride’s have no fear to this added volume! Peplums waist-defining attributes are both great and flattering for both boyish and curvy figures! Lace: This isn’t your grandmother’s dollies! This graphic, floral fabric is re-worked into sexy silhouettes with a dash of tradition making it look fresher than ever. And last but not least. . . Transformers: With more brides wanting a second dress for their reception, designers are answering with convertible styles that use removable skirts, trains, and capes to create a party dress that keeps that wedding look, but allows brides to get down and dirty! Whatever route you decide to take, just remember be unique, and always incorporate your style!
