A Guide to 2012 Wedding Dresses
If you are getting wed next spring then this fall is the time of
year to start choosing your wedding dress. The latest styles have
just arrived at all the wedding boutiques and you can get your
hands on the hottest trends quite literally as they come in through
So what are the key wedding dress trends for 2011?
Unsurprisingly after that "big" wedding last April (I think you all
know which one I`m talking about) certainly inspired a leaning
towards simple but classic, understated gowns and the gorgeously
delicate lace sleeves and there is a great range of takes on this
modern classic. After all. What bride wouldn't want to emulate the
stunning Kate Middleton as she walked down the aisle.
But for those of us who like something a little less mainstream,
there is a wonderful range of quirky but flattering silhouettes,
details and even colors which are making an appearance for the most
fashionable of 2012 brides.
Polka dots are set to be big in the coming season. Not garish at
all, very subtle in different textures and tones of ivory and
white. Great for any of you Bette Paige wannabe`s, but they are
also a fantastic way to take a step away from the traditional
gowns. Nature inspired, embroidered detailing is also very big for
2012, with beautifully contrasting deeps navy`s and blacks creating
a stunning impact against ivory or white satins and silks.
Illusion necklines are also featuring heavily in 2012`s key
trends. By illusion necklines, we mean they give the illusion of
being strapless, when actually there is beautifully delicate lace
or gauzes which give the skin a sexy subtlety by veiling it in an
intriguing manner. Gauzes aren`t just around the necklines either.
Many of the coming year`s skirts feature sheer, asymmetric skirts
which create an enchanting look and will happily show off a
spectacular pair of shoes. Just remember. Wear gauzy on either the
legs or the neckline, but never both at the same time. Sexy is
subtle, especially on your wedding day.
Two tiered skirts have also made a big impact this season. They
create a very sexy silhouette and are a great way of camouflaging
hips which are a bit too wide. Multiple layered skirts can be gauzy
or tailored and are a beautiful way to create a bit of shape which
makes the most of your assets.
And let`s not forget the colors which are officially on the
runways since the usually conservative Reese Witherspoon got
married in a beautiful blush wedding gown. This season you will
find gorgeous dresses in subtle blushes, lilacs and apricots as
well as vibrant blues and greens which will certainly make you
stand out from the crowd, exactly as you should on your wedding
There are so many gorgeous, innovative and subtlety sexy gowns
available this fall that it really is the perfect time to be a
bride. There are plenty of dresses which will give your guests a
wedding they will remember, guaranteeing heaps of anniversary cards
for many years to come.
