Your wedding gown is the centerpiece of your wedding. All eyes will be on you and the gown, and your choice will influence the colors and style of the bridal party attire, the types of flowers you choose, your wedding cake and your other decor. Of course, it will also be immortalized in your photos forever, so it’s important to make the right choice.
This season, there are many trends in wedding dresses that can make you a beautiful bride with an unforgettable wedding. Here are some of the top trends in wedding dresses for 2013 for you to consider:
Wedding gowns are getting away from the prim, covered-up looks of the past. Today’s wedding gowns are a little bit sexy, and they’re not afraid to show off your figure. One of this season’s top trends is the bare back — either from a plunging backline or from a cut out. The result is a sexy view of the bride as she walks down the aisle.
The strapless gown is starting to fade into the background as the strap rises again. This season’s hottest gowns have sexy asymmetric necklines with an off-the-shoulder strap. Once reserved for evening gowns, asymmetric necklines are giving a whole new look to wedding gowns.
This season’s gowns are getting lower in the back and higher in the front. The hemlines are getting shorter, resulting in gowns that have tea-length or even mini-skirts. It makes for a much easier dress to dance in during the reception!
Ruffled hemlines may seem like something that went out of favor in the 80s, but this season’s wedding gowns update that look to create something sophisticated and gorgeous. Sculpted ruffles advance far beyond the hemline and can take up the entire body of the skirt, creating dramatic and abundant swirls.
Long sheer sleeves are hot right now, and they add a touch of old-world elegance to a gown. Lacy, sheer sleeves look romantic and feminine, and they are great for a formal wedding or one with a garden theme.
Of course, any dress you choose should reflect your personal style. Choose one of these trends and you’ll get a dress that’s memorable and a great reflection of who you are.
