Wedding Dress Trends 2012

  • Lace

Whether you go for lace inserts or a complete covering in lace, lace embellished wedding dresses are hot right now.  This is a favourite look of mine.

  • Asymmetrical Seams

Asymmetrical seams have been around and hugely popular for a couple of years, and there’s still plenty more of that style to come – mostly because it’s highly flattering to many brides.

  • Ruffles

Ruffles are something brides tend to love or hate – they’re slightly over-the-top, definitely unminimilistic and tend to swing between either being a hot trend or likened to a toilet-roll doll (remember those?).  There are some stunning ruffled gowns out there, and for the bride who wants to create impact, ruffles may be well worth a look.

  • Flower Patterns

Flower detailing is everywhere at the moment, and there really is nothing more pretty or more feminine, whether you go for a skirt smothered in foliage, or just for some small detailing.

  • Beading

Eye-catching sparkly beading on strategic areas of your wedding gown adds je ne sais quoi to what otherwise might be a fairly plain gown, and it’s very popular right now with designers.

  • Sleeves

Non-sleeveless gowns are currently having their moment in the sun – around ten years ago, any non-sleeveless designs looked distinctly lonely amongst the plethora of sleeveless wedding gowns, and any bride with untoned arms had to suck it up.  But sleeves and straps are back with a vengence, so if you want the variety that different styles of sleeves & straps provide, or don’t want the pain of endless push-ups, rejoice!

  • Greek style

If you’re blessed with a fast metabolism or the determination and will to spend hours in the gym, these gowns will probably look amazing on you – made from soft, slinky, flowing fabrics, they are super-sexy.

  • Ball Gowns

Super fashionable for the last couple of years, ballgowns are still hot stuff, and if you always fantasised about being a Disney princess style bride as a little girl, you can safely do so without being accused of not being up to date.
