Wedding dress shopping is no longer just about the princess gown or the fishtail fit. Today’s trends have brought a whole range of new designs into the mix. Today, we’re revealing just a few of these trends and giving you a sneak peak of what was revealed at New York Bridal Week…

TWO-PIECE DESIGNS

The modern two-piece design, comprising of a pretty top and full skirt, is just one of the trends we’ve fallen in love with. Just as beautiful as any gown, the two-piece look allows you to adopt something a little different while still looking the part. What’s more, you’ll be able to wear the top over and over again!

BODY-CON STYLE

Take your look to the next level with a sexy, stylish wedding gown that shows off all your curves. Ideal for the confident bride, you can take this look even further with sheer, embroidered panels if you’re feeling extra daring. Just take a look at some of Berta Bridal’s new designs for inspiration!

OFF THE SHOULDER GOWNS

For something super-trendy, why not choose a dress with sleeves that sit off the shoulder. Dresses in this style have been seen all over the catwalks at New York Bridal Week, with some also featuring detailed sleeves or a sleeved cape.

PASTEL SHADES

Pretty pastel gowns have been available for a while now, but it’s over the next year or so that they’re really going to be adopted by brides. On the New York catwalks, golden and blush colours were used by Jenny Packham while other designers, such as Chicago Bridal Market, embraced the ombré trend. Blue was another popular choice of colour too.

FLORAL DETAILS

Combine a gorgeous gown with a beautiful floral design and you’ve got yourself something really special. 3D wedding designs, inspired by nature, have recently come into fashion with more and more designers showing off their floral-inspired designs on the New York catwalk.  Or follow the hot botanical trend and opt for a floral printed gown like the one below from the new Romona Keveza Luxe Collection.

If you’re looking for a dress that’s feminine and beautiful, you need the bow gown in your life! We were so excited to see huge bows worked into the design of a number of gowns. Carolina Herrera had some gorgeous examples of this look.

THE ANDROGYNOUS BRIDE

High-end fashion meets beautiful bride with the uber-cool androgynous look. Think trousers instead of a dress or a 3-piece lace jumpsuit with full skirt. Ines Di Santo was just one of the designers exhibiting this trend on the catwalks.
