Fashion-forward brides take heart — this is your year. Although brides can expect to see many of last year’s styles and silhouettes in gowns for 2010, there is a certain amount of newness in details, color and fabrications. Fashion is the driving force behind this unexpected newness and brides who want to make a statement will not be disappointed.
Higher hemlines or the new “mini” wedding gown is the newest possibility for brides. Perfect for the fashion-minded bride, these gowns have a ’50s throw back feel and feature a perfectly tapered, fitted waistline. Most popular is the sleeveless, strapless style with a fitted bodice and waist of silk satin highlighted by a full tulle skirt that hits above the knee. This is the perfect wedding gown for one of bridal fashion’s newest and hottest trends — multiple wedding gowns. Whether it is a destination wedding or the bride decides to select a second gown for dancing at the reception, this is an important trend that is gaining attention in New York and Los Angeles. Some brides have been known to change their wedding gown four and five times. Bobbie Lopez, owner of All Brides Beautiful in Hudson, has had two clients just this year alone purchase multiple wedding gowns. Generally, the bride will choose a more traditional style for the service and then opt for a second and third gown for the reception and following.
Colorful details are a big trend in bridal fashion this year.The most important colors are green, lavender, pink, silver blue and yes, black. Black is very strong this year. Black sashes, black veils and even black flowers. Colorful appliqués and two-toned wedding gowns against white or off white skirts are also fun options.
Feathers and bows will again be important details.This year, though, it is all about placement. Feathers, bows, beading and rosettes are strategically placed to draw attention to a particular area. Ruffles, tiers and layering of fabrics continue for this season too. Texture by way of layering fabrics gives a gown added dimension with a couture look and feel. A functional yet practical detail that seems to be making its way into bridal fashion is the introduction of pockets. Dubbed “practical pockets,” deep pockets in a gown are perfect for that little compact or lip gloss every bride wishes she had at her fingertips.
Fabrics tend to be light and airy this year. Lighter-weight fabrics create lots of airy volume and allow for a more comfortable gown, especially in warmer weather. Perfect for the bride who dreams of a beautiful ball gown for her wedding. One thing is for sure — the ball gown is back and the drama is on the lower half. Equally important is the ruching and draping of fabrics. This continues to be a strong trend for 2010.
Choosing a wedding gown is always a special time for a bride and this year, despite the overlapping of trends from last season, there are still a lot of choices for 2010. Brides today have an opportunity to really make a statement about who they are by selecting a dress that is a unique reflection of their personality.
