Hot Trends in Wedding Dress Fashion

Looking perfect for the perfect wedding day begins with choosing a dress. Whether the wedding is in a Paris chateau, at sunset on the San Francisco bay, or in an opulent garden venue in Sydney, everything starts with choosing a dress.

The hottest trend in wedding dress fashion is romance. Bridal shops are spilling over with princess ball gowns, mermaid-style trumpet gowns and draped Grecian-inspired gowns. Each of these silhouettes shouts old-fashioned romance as brides float down aisles across the world. Ball gowns, trumpet gowns and draped gowns get new life this season with the ousting of stiff and shiny fabrics and the welcoming of soft fabrics and lace. Ruffles on dresses from neck to hemline, of both the delicate and of the bold variety, add individuality to gowns. Ruching gathers and softly pleats fabrics through the bodice, flattering the figures of all brides. Floral touches abound on wedding dresses and range from dramatic cabbage roses to dainty flowers sprinkled throughout the gown’s body.

Old-fashioned and romantic silhouettes are punched up with modern color choices and accessories. Although the traditional choices are white and ivory, brides are now able to push the boundaries of tradition in the color of a wedding dress. The trendiest picks for all over color are blush pinks, slate grays and silvery grays. Short veils and the addition of satin sashes in any color of the rainbow put brides at the cutting edge of wedding dress fashion.

Brides will want to consider locale when choosing dresses for their big day. Fall or winter weddings in chilly climates offer brides another accessorizing opportunity with the addition of a bolero jacket or a shawl to keep their shoulders toasty warm. Brides needing a little more warmth can also choose gowns with sleeves. Off-the-shoulder styles with three-quarter length sleeves are trendy this season and offer more skin coverage than strapless or spaghetti strap styles. Spring and summer brides will want to consider rising temperatures and opt for gowns with less coverage so they can keep their cool. With warmer climates comes the possibility of a beach venue or a garden venue. Brides will want to think about length of gown trains and to consider the weight of gowns for outdoor venues such as these.

Whether a bride chooses the latest trends in wedding gowns or opts for a more traditional style, the way a bride feels in her dress sets the tone for her entire day. With many options offered by wedding gown designers this season, every bride can find her own vision of ethereal beauty for her special day.
