Glamorous Wedding Dresses

 Wedding Dress by: Rapsimo

The continuing trend for bridal gowns is to place focus on the bride's individuality and style...

The strapless corset remains popular with many designers, in particular the sleeveless evening gown styles that look simply glamorous. Sleeveless wedding dresses also provide the bride a light, summery look and add elegance to an evening wedding.  

Sheer fabrics (chiffons, organzas, and satin-faced organzas) can give dresses a light breezy look, perfect for the garden or beach wedding. 

Overall, narrower, more sophisticated silhouettes are gaining more popularity, as they help make the body appear slimmer.

A-line dresses (also known as princess line) are also popular as they provide graceful lines that are very slimming on most figures.  A-line dresses are the most figure flattering silhouette as they feature vertical seams that flow from the shoulders down to flared skirt, creating an 'A' shape.

Empire dresses (which feature a high waistline directly under the bust with the skirt starting just below the cropped bodice) remain a very strong choice because of the way they add height to the bride by shifting the focus of the eye upwards, which is great for petite brides. 

Embroidery is replacing the traditional lace, creating a lighter, artistically designed look. Trims such as beads and pearls are creating a big impact, with strategic placement on special areas of the gown to enhance the brides best features.  

Girls that love glamour delight in the careful hand-embroidered detail of satin ball gowns. Pearls and delicate designs are repeated in subtle ways throughout the wedding...in hair accessories or skillful patterns on the wedding cake. Silver threading against white fabric establishes an opulent style that warrants grand chandeliers, candlelight and an aisle of white fragrant gardenias.

Modern brides are exercising their right to bring out their unique personality. Today's brides are using inventive techniques to incorporate colour into their wedding dress and accessories - either all over or as an accent. Colours that are soft and sophisticated like blue hues are incorporated into bodice trims, giving way to sheer gathered trains producing a flowing waterfall of fabric. Colour hues are subtly complimented in the centerpieces, linens and cake.

Gwen Stefani did it and so can you. Gwen walked down the aisle in a stunning pale pink gown. Whether the wedding dress is casual or couture, pink is a winner with many of today's top bridal designers. Pink is an ideal choice for a spring or summer wedding. Pink is not only an excellent choice for brides paler skin tones, it also flatters blondes and brunettes.

Another emerging trend amongst celebrities is to change from their traditional wedding dress worn at the ceremony into a more slinky contemporary dress for the reception - one wedding dress is never enough is it girls!
