Wedding gowns are another part of a traditional event, but there are so many styles to choose from. Here are some of the top trends from the latest bridal collections of Priscilla of Boston, Vera Wang, and Amsale. Be sure to click on the links to take a look at my beautiful findings.
1. Mermaid dresses
If you have a flair for the dramatic, this dress might be for you. A fitted and flared dress also known as mermaid dress, is good at accentuating the curves of a body while at the same time flaring out at the bottom so that the woman wearing it looks like royalty. Priscilla of Boston has a strapless ivory fitted and flared gown for $2500-$3000 that can be custom fit. If this doesn’t convince you enough that mermaid dresses are in, check out Vera Wang’s new bridal collection where this asymmetrically draped strapless gown and one shoulder gown are only a few examples of the trend.
A time-tested trend, the empire waist dress would make a bride look youthful and elegant. This under $2,000 strapless dress from Priscilla of Boston is a modern version of an empire waist dress, while this ivory dress from Amsale looks a little more classic. Both dresses, however, are strapless with floral bust details. Perhaps that is another trend in itself. Even though strapless gowns can border on casual, the full-length of the gowns balances it out.
The best type of dress to wear for a Spring wedding is a tea-length dress, which is a dress whose hem falls anywhere from the knees to the calves. Although tea dresses can be worn casually, wedding designers have picked up that with the right accessories, they can be wedding appropriate. And this vintage style would outline the bride’s silhouette very well.
I happen to have my eye on this dress from Priscilla of Boston. The intricate Ivory creation has lace layered over a satin bodice, has a full skirt and falls under $2000.
Priscilla of Boston seems to have an affinity for this type of dress. Here is a square-neckline tea-length dress under $2,000 that is made casual by its pleated satin bands and playful by its full skirt. This can be worn by the whimsical, fun-loving bride.
When it really comes down to it, it’s your wedding, so choose the style of dress that best suits you.
