We’re just two full months into 2012 and yet the year for wedding gowns is already proving quite trendy. So far, the year looks to be shaping up as one of elegance, conservatism, volume, texture and color.
Designers, such as Vera Wang and Oscar de la Renta, featured various colored gown selections in their Spring 2012 wedding lines this year; however, blush pink seems to take top billing for popularity among this year’s modern bride.
Whereas in years’ past, the strapless gown seemed to dominate the runways and aisles of wedding culture, 2012 brides seem to be embracing long or cap sleeves and high or illusion necklines in their gowns of choice.
This year’s gowns will feature more seductive styling, such a high slits, front or back plunging V-neck lines or dramatic off-the-shoulder looks.
Sequins, beads, lace, and other sparkling embellishments appear destined to make a huge impact as the busy wedding seasons kick into high gear during the summer months of 2012.
Colored sashes are still a huge hit for dressing up even the most simplistic of wedding gowns this year. Available in many colors and adorned with everything from feathers or crystals, the most popular sash colors for this year are deep purple, blush pink, ivory, black, and champagne.
Regardless of your style or color preferences, the 2012 wedding gown trends look to equal the excitement of the brides — like YOU — that are loving every moment of their wedding planning!
