A bride’s wedding day is a major fashion opportunity. But before she can pick her gown, she needs first to identify her bridal style. Some brides want to look haute chic with a couture silhouette and bold details, while others prefer to be understated in a clean, sleek style. Deciding to look romantic, sexy, classic or untraditional is the first step in finding the perfect dress.
For a sexier look, a bride should try a deep neckline that shows off her décolletage. This year, bridal style is about being bold and making a statement. A sexy neckline is perfect for a modern bride who wants to show off some skin.
Flowers are not only for the bride’s bouquet. They will be in full bloom this spring, as they jump off the season’s most romantic wedding dresses. The 3-D details add beautiful texture, unlike the typical embroidered blossoms. These feminine flowers add whimsy to even the most understated silhouettes.
Oversized bows are coming back from the 80s, but they are more chic than ever before. Don’t think billowing bows on poufy sleeves – bows are elegant additions to the most sophisticated silhouettes. A bold bow can highlight a bride’s waist or a plunging back, or simply add extra femininity to any wedding dress.
If the plunging neckline is a little too fiery for the bride, an off-the-shoulder style might be a better fit. We’ve seen the trend all over ready-to-wear runways and now it’s taking over bridal fashion. Bare shoulders look beautiful on simple and ornate gowns.
Playing with color is a great option for the unorthodox bride. Pantone’s colors of the year, rose quartz and serenity, are white’s runners-up and we couldn’t be happier! A blushing bride can take a chance in the soft shade of pink or be her own “something blue” as she walks down the aisle.
