If you’re tying the knot sometime soon, I’m sure you’re already on the lookout for bridal trends to incorporate to your wedding, be it for the décor, the theme, or your dress. Speaking of wedding dresses, I think we’ve all had at least a vague picture of the dress we dreamt of getting married in and as a fashion enthusiast, it can be difficult to zero in on which one of these imaginary dresses to wear to your big day. To help you out, here are some of the biggest and hottest bridal trends you should know.
- Short sleeves – short sleeved wedding dresses are making a huge hit amongst brides this spring and we’re betting this trend is going to make its way to summer as well. Short sleeved dresses add a touch of ladylike innocence to a bridal dress. It’s great for those who do not want to go all out on looking sexy for their big day.
- Tasteful tiers – if you need a bit of volume on the lower part of your dress but you’re afraid opting for a poofy ball gown is a little too much or a bit overused, you can achieve the look by adding tiers instead.
- Low plunging necklines – last season’s brides opted for the modest, conservative side and this season’s brides are going the opposite direction. You can opt for cutout details, sheer panels, or other ways to show a bit more skin but one of the most popular ways to get it done is to go for a deep V neckline. Keep the rest of your outfit modest to avoid the risk of looking racy.
- Wedding suit – gone are the days when the groom had all the fun looking sharp in a suit. Today, more and more brides are opting for a sleeker, edgier wedding look by opting to wear a bridal suit. A bridal suit can be as plain or as ornate as you like. Most bridal suits are tailored to look a little more ladylike and feminine compared to the usual suit.
- Lots of layers – soft and airy fabrics layered together make for a dreamy, ethereal look and if that is what you are going for in your bridal look then a lot of layers on your dress would do you lots of good. Keep in mind that layers aren’t always found on the skirt. You can layer with a cape, with overlay or underlay, or anywhere else.
