A bride is seen from all angles on her wedding day, especially walking down the aisle. Designers have been adding elements of surprise with beautiful back details, from backs entirely covered in lace, to intricate beading, daringly deep v-backs, sexy keyholes, or elegant buttons running the length of the train. These details that place the focus on your back creates a sophistication that will make every exit as fashionable as your entrance.
Vintage wedding dresses will continue to be popular among brides, 2014 inspirations is going to be more 1920s chic. This era was all about sparkle and shimmer, and designers are taking these elements to make glamorous gowns These styles are sophisticated yet flirty, gorgeous dress designs with allover beading.

Many designers have stepped out of the traditional “white” box and now offer their gowns in stunning colors. The trick is to find a color that’s flattering to your skin tone, and not everyone looks great in white. Champagnes and blush pinks are top choices. Gold will find its way into wedding dresses in the form of not only rich colored fabrics but also beading and embroidery. Gowns in color are gaining more popularity, since many brides find that their skin tone works better in colored dresses than in white, which can wash out fair skinned brides.
Classic meets modern with the current lace designs. Gone are the days of your grandmother’s lace tablecloths, being replaced with intricate lace designs that feel fresh. Traditional lace will get a new spin in the upcoming seasons. We are seeing the classic Alencon and Chantilly lace used in cutting edge ways, but designers are also experimenting with stunning textured laces such as crocheted or graphic floral, as well as shimmery metallic designs. Lace gowns have a dramatic and sophisticated feel that is elegant enough for a black tie wedding, or can be rustic and laid-back for a backyard country wedding.
Sleeves are back and there is nothing frumpy or boring about this new trend! Every designer is incorporating a variety of straps and sleeves into their collections. From short capped ones to elbow-length and even wrist-length, brides will have a variety to choose from. Sleeves add glamor, whimsy, and old-fashioned Hollywood style to wedding gowns. Besides the fashion, there’s also a practical side to putting sleeves on gowns. Sophisticated cap sleeves will keep you from feeling overexposed, while three-quarter sleeves or full-length will have you covered. It also allows for more creativity and diversity in dress selections.
