Exploring Wedding Dress and Gown Trends
The best opportunity for any bride to show her unique sense of style is with her wedding dress. The days of "cookie cutter" gowns are no more and variety is in! In addition, one of the newest trends is to have a wedding dress that can actually be worn for other occasions after the big day is over. This change in thinking reflects not only budgetary concerns, but is also a reflection of the trend toward more simplistic wedding dresses. Although the changes in wedding dress design are partially because of changing fashion trends, it is also because a growing number of women are waiting until they are older to get married or are on their second wedding. In both instances, the brides tend to look for dresses that are a bit more down to earth.
Dress Trends for the Winter and Summer Wedding
When we think about wedding dresses, we normally think of a wedding on a beautiful summer day with a gorgeous white dress to match. But, there is a growing trend towards having winter weddings instead. This is particularly true for second-time brides.
Popular choices for winter wedding dresses include those that are colored with deep reds as well as dresses with a good deal of black. Fur collars and faux fur coats are another popular option. If you are interested in adding a touch of luxury or doing things a little out of the ordinary, then these ideas may be perfect for you.
Summer Wedding Gown Trends
Even for summer weddings, the addition of substantial amounts of colored fabrics can add a classic touch to the traditional white or cream-colored dress.
With weddings becoming more sophisticated all the time, choosing and maintaining a theme for all aspects of the wedding is vital for most brides. The dress is the centerpiece of the theme, so the choice of colors and accessories is very important. Popular seasonal colors for wedding dresses include lilac, pink, blue and yellow. Some brides will go with a dress that has either the bodice or the skirt in "their" color and have the rest of the dress a traditional cream or white.
Unique Wedding Gown and Dress Trends
The important thing to remember is that your wedding dress is an expression and extension of your personality. Today's dresses are all different - with each bride adding her own stamp of originality. Individually designed dresses are the way of the future - a made-to-measure dress will fit perfectly and be exactly what you want on your Big Day, not to mention being completely unique!
So, whether you go with a red-bodiced and white-skirted dress or a deep purple gown, you will be showing the world what makes you you.
