For any bride-to-be, that true “Cinderella” moment is when she walks out of the dressing room in the wedding dress that’s meant to be hers. To help match brides with their dream dress, Alfred Angelo, the world’s largest and longest-running family-owned bridal manufacturer, lists what’s now and WOW in this countdown of the top 5 bridal trends.
Sheer and Sparkly Backs
Brides are standing with their backs to their congregations for quite some time, so why not make the back of their dress just as much of a show-stopper as the front? Sheer, sparkly and sexy backs add drama and glamour to an already gorgeous wedding dress.
An illusion neckline adds a bit of modesty and elegance to the dress, and shows the bride is fashion-forward. Top off the look with some gorgeous make-up. Sheer details at the neckline shows off the bride’s clavicle and draws the eyes up toward her face.
For brides who wish to be unique, but not stray too far from looking “bridal,” wedding dresses in silver and gold tones are all the rage. They’re gorgeous on all skin tones, and create a chic, regal look.
Gowns in pink hues are perfect for the bride who wants to make a statement. Pink wedding dresses were a huge hit on the runways of Bridal Fashion Week. Celebrity fashionistas such as Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Biel and Kaley Cuoco added a huge exclamation point to this color trend when they all donned pink on their wedding day.
It’s time to start channeling 1950s Christian Dior. Brides are gravitating toward fit-and-flare ball gowns with wide stripes and mixed fabrics, giving the vibe of a 1950s Dior-clad starlet. The look is simple yet elegant, modern with vintage femininity.
