Brides magazine has published the latest wedding dress trends for 2012. These pieces of information will turn out useful for all brides to be, regardless of the season in which they will walk down the aisle, so make sure you read the entire article.
Illusion necklines represent the most recurrent trend of the year, judging by the numerous fashion designers who adopted them in their bridal collections. Critics have described it as an “illusion” because this element of the dress is usually made out of sheer, delicate material that is embellished with various designs. The neckline is transparent enough to see some skin without being, however, vulgar.
The majority of the wedding dresses that have been created this year are unique because they have two tiers. This design is perfect for brides who want to camouflage wider hips because the top tier is not tight fitting.
Most wedding dresses in 2012 will be embellished with horsehair trim. This doesn’t mean that the dress will be made out of horsehair; it is a synthetic material that is often used on the underskirts of gowns to create a crisper hemline. Last year’s collections included many dresses that were turned inside-out. The trend is continued this year by exposing the underlay fabrication as a visible hemline treatment, looped sash or bodice detail. Horsehair trims are great for brides to be who want to add volume to their skirts without carrying a heavy dress.
If you prefer romantic dresses, you should probably opt for a wedding gown that has lace sleeves. This trend was inspired by Kate Middleton’s wedding dress in 2011 and will definitely confer a royal look to the one who wears it. If you like lace you can opt for a model that is almost entirely made out of this fabric; either way, you will find many similar dresses in designers’ shops.
The color of the wedding dress has been subject to modifications, as well. White dresses have long been replaced by ivory or nude shades, but this trend becomes even more visible in 2012. If you want to be a fashionable bride, you will choose a soft pink or a blush dress for your wedding day.
