3D FLORAL

Florals are a spring staple due to their seasonal allure and feminine appeal. This spring, designers took a more realistic approach by making the flowers come to life 3-dimensionally!  This unexpected texture provides a truly stimulating experience for both the bride and her guests.

CORSETS

This particular trend is extremely flattering for the female figure. It flattens the mid-section while enhancing the hips and chest. Corsets also provide a romantic and sensual allure reminiscent of the glamorous yet repressed Victorian era.

LACE SLEEVES

Lace is an essential bridal element due to its romantic appeal; however it is up to the designers to create fresh ways to evolve it for modern brides.  Adding a lace sleeve provides tasteful elegance that appears conservative while still remaining sexy.

RUFFLE SKIRTS

Bring in the drama! Ruffle skirts add luxurious texture, volume and movement for the bride who wants all eyes on her.

GOLD

Soft touches of gold are extravagant and luxe.  The subtle sheen is a perfect way for a bride to explore color while remaining true to her traditional roots.

SUBTLE PEPLUM

Bridal silhouettes are often timeless but fashionistas crave that extra edge. This trend adds that level of fashion she lusts for without being too extreme. It is also great for those brides who want to mask their troublesome mid-section!
