Dream Wedding Dresses - The Hottest New Trends
Hunting for the perfect wedding dress is an exciting experience for even the most reluctant shopper.
There are so many incredible designs to choose from that you are sure to find something to suit,
whatever your style. So what are the hottest new trends for the coming wedding season?
Films such as the Great Gatsby have had a huge impact on the fashion industry and wedding dresses
are no exception. Drop-waisted flapper dresses beautifully embellished with beads and crystals are a
perfect option for brides who do not want a full-length dress. The soft silhouette is romantic and
flattering and can be teamed with a longer flared skirt for a more traditional look. Royal weddings
are a modern fairytale and the dress Kate Middleton wore for her marriage to Prince William was a
stunning example of princess perfection. The Grace Kelly elegance of the shape combined with
extremely flattering lace sleeves will see this design remain popular this year. Vintage-style dresses
are a lovely way to celebrate the history of the history of the wedding dress, even if you are not
lucky enough to have a genuine heirloom gown.
Dresses created by some of fashion’s most respected designers are an incredibly popular choice. But
just why are designer wedding dresses so special? One reason is that they take inspiration from the
latest catwalk shows, resulting in attention-grabbing gowns that always look great. Hot trends for
the coming season include intricate corsetry, soft romantic ruffles and that red carpet classic, the
fishtail hem. These create strong silhouettes that are flattering to almost any shape, adding curves in
all the right places and ingeniously disguising any unwanted lumps. A bespoke designer gown will be
carefully measured and tailored to ensure it fits perfectly, helping you feel great on your special day.
If a traditional gown does not appeal, the good news is that there is more choice available than ever
before for the perfect wedding outfit. Bianca Jagger is famed for having one of the most iconic
wedding outfits in fashion history, although contrary to popular opinion it was actually a jacket and
long, narrow fitted skirt rather than a trouser suit. However, a suit, whether you chose trousers or a
skirt to wear with a jacket, is a contemporary and versatile look perfect for an intimate wedding.
Using luxurious materials such as silk or satin adds a romantic touch. Fifties-style prom dresses are
perfect for brides who want the freedom of a shorter dress. A halterneck or sweetheart neckline
looks pretty, whilst adding layers of petticoats under a full skirt creates a dramatic and flattering
silhouette. Using netting in a contrasting shade gives a bold, quirky twist. Many brides are opting for
coloured dresses, such as blossom pinks or pale blues for the summer, with rich reds and purples a
popular choice for exclusive wedding gowns.
The latest wedding dress trends have something to suit every bride, whatever her taste or style.
