6 Wedding Dress Trends for Summer 2014

23 Jun

Today we take a look at some of the best wedding dress trends for this season. We will showcase our favorites along with what to expect coming down the isle.

1. Lace Sleeves: A timeless trend. Kate Middleton let us know that this look isn’t going anywhere. We may have old photos of our mother or grandmother walking the isle in white lace sleeves. And now check out this trend with a modern appeal.

2. Open Back: The modern bride will be a bit more daring with the amount of skin that is revealed.

3. Hints of Color: A modern bride may not always be looking for a pure white gown. Hints of color can be expressive and also add a fun summer flare.

4. Ruffles: Many brides are attracted to the dramatic feel of the volume that ruffles create.  Many textures and fabrics can be used to create this look.

5.  Fitted: While many brides enjoy the drama of volume, a modern bride may be looking for a fitted look, revealing each of her curves.

6. Bohemian: Finally, the summer wedding favorite. This is the true modern bride combining her special day with her edgy style. Specific to summer gowns, a flowy and somewhat structureless gown is popular. This can include layers of sheer fabric, giving a beach wedding feel. A bohemian style may also be reflected in accessories, should the bride choose a gown with more structure.
