Here are 4 of the hottest trends for the 2014 wedding dress:
Vintage Wedding Dress:
Many brides opt for vintage styling rather than actual vintage gowns… When buying a vintage dress this could mean either an old dress that has been passed down by a relative or close friend; or stored for many years and then put up for sale by a private re-seller or vintage shop. Or, a Vintage styled dress. These two types of Vintage gown are very different as a second hand or pre-owned gown may need work on it, depending on how it has been stored, or may need altering, as no woman is the same size or shape. The best option would be a Vintage inspired gown, there are many to choose from and many stores are offering vintage inspired gowns as they are feminine, easy to wear for most body shapes and have a timeless allure.
Embroidered Lace Gown:
Lace embroidered dresses have been popular for an age, they are THE most traditional style of gown and were made even more popular in 2011 with the Royal Wedding, with many brides wanting to emulate the royal style. They remain at the top of fashion styles for weddings if you want to be a traditional bride and have an ageless quality.
Short and Sexy Wedding Dresses:
In recent years the shorter wedding dress has gained an ever increasing following, many brides are opting for a figure hugging dress and flaunting their figures in this sexy styled wedding gown. The short wedding dress suits any height bride and most body types and as such is one of the easiest types of wedding dresses to wear. They are also the most practical. Most brides have a large gown for the ceremony and another shorter one for the evening; why not just buy the shorter one? The short, sexy gown is practical, can be packed away more easily for the destination wedding and much easier to walk in making it a very high ranking contender for the 2013 popularity rankings.
Bold Colored Gowns:
As with most areas of fashion, Wedding dresses follow the media, and many a pop star and film icon have been spotted in non-traditional gowns for their weddings, sporting very bold colors and sexier styles. Or maybe this is not your first wedding? Many bides who are not getting married for the first time choose other colors for their gowns as they have already worn the traditional style and color and want a complete change for their next wedding. A bold colored wedding dress is a very modern and very memorable statement to make.
