While planning a wedding, one of the most important aspects of the entire event is the dress. Described below are the wedding dress designs that have been hitting the runway (and aisle) this spring and summer. From peplums to dazzling beads to keyhole backs, these trends are expected to continue into the remainder of 2013.
One trend brides may want to consider is a short skirt. The smaller length allows for more freedom of movement, and diminishes the fuss of trains. Lengths can vary from tea length to a style that rises high above the knee. Styles contrast between flowing skirts to a tighter and more fitted form to a tulle pouf that gathers away from the body.
Dramatic backs are a beautiful way to add more flair to a dress. Examples may include cut-outs, tulle paneling, elaborate lace, draping, or keyhole backs. Keyhole backs are especially effective when edged with lace. These portrait backs are thought to be a very romantic, and sweet way to bring attention to a delicate design. As a bride, all eyes are on you for the majority of your wedding. You are being looked at from all angles, so why not add a sexy, but modest flair when you turn around?
By applying appliqués to a dress, a plain gown can turn into an elegant item. This material is often pieces of fabric or embroidery that are sewn onto the dress to create a design, picture, or certain pattern. Floral appliqués are found to be the most popular. Appliqués can be found in most crafting stores, and can be ordered online in large amounts.
