What’s Hot for Spring 2012?

Written by    Last updated: October 10, 2011

The newest wedding dress styles and details for 2012 include pastels, a combination of lengths and fantasy necklines! These designs appeared on dozens of runways, marking their official debut on the wedding scene.

Short: We love these shorter dresses by Tobi Hannah. Last season, three-dimensional skirts were in, this season designers are focusing on shorter hemlines, creating skirts with tiers that flatter all shapes!

Different length combinations, especially dresses that are short at the front and long at the back, are very popular for 2012 and give you the best of both worlds! Carol Hannah’s dresses are also layered with a sweet-heart neckline, adding to the overall drama and romance of the gown.

Matthew Williamson’s one-shouldered gowns and dresses with sleeves are flattering to most body types and a great way to hide wider shoulders. Feminine, romantic and sexy!

Pastels: For BHLDN’s Spring/ Summer 2012 collection, off-shades of white and pastels featured heavily. These subtle shades of colour, like the silver seen here, are chic and offer something to brides who are looking for something a little different.

Fantasy necklines are big this season as seen here with Reem Acra’s 2012 Spring Collection. A sheer layer of fabric covers the skin, so you get a strapless look with some added coverage – two looks for the price of one! This style is soft, elegant and perfect for brides who don’t want to feel over-exposed or too covered up.
