The Biggest Bridal Fashion Trends For 2014

They say that the most important dress a woman will ever buy in her life is her wedding dress. It’s not surprising then that many brides-to-be spend a lot of time and attention in finding the most alluring dress for their big day. Aside from considering factors such as budget, suitability to the type of wedding or venue, and gown designer, the season’s top bridal fashion trends also influence and inspire the choices of most brides.

And if you’re set to exchange your “I Do’s” this 2014, and would like to be in the know of the hottest wedding dress trends for this year, then you’ve come to the right place. We’ve put together some of the most mesmerising and enduring bridal fashion trends to help you in your wedding dress-search. Have a look at 2014’s bridal style du jour below:

Trend 1: A Play of Colour

Why wear white when you can always look glamorous in any colour? This is perhaps what the world’s top designers such as Vera Wang and Austin Scarlett were trying to convey as they played with colours on their runway pieces. From bold and blushing pinks, powder blue accents to ethereal bronze and gold, colour is certainly in this year. This is perfect for the unconventional bride who’s keen to stand out and who dares to wear colour on her big day.

Trend 2: Short and Sophisticated

Traditionally, wedding gowns are designed to be long and flowing. However, for 2014, brides who want to keep it casual yet classy can buck this style and go for sophisticated, short wedding dresses instead. From knee-length dresses, midi shifts, to calf-length styles, brides can look exquisitely sweet or seductive whenever they choose to.

Trend 3: Vintage is in Vogue

Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby was released early May 2013, but its fashion influence continues to be felt in 2014. Vintage styles, such as intricate beadings and trimmings, boleros and cover ups, delicately embroidered sleeves and necklines, gloves and ruffles are still in vogue this year. Pair it up with a marcel wave ‘do and some fabulous bridal accessories, and you’re sure to be the most stunning vintage-loving bride ever! While vintage-style dresses often appear to be costly, you can actually find affordable and cheap wedding dresses online that don’t compromise style and quality.

Trend 4: Lovely in Lace

Feel like royalty on your wedding day by wearing Duchess Kate Middleton’s popular look: the romantic lace wedding dress. The timeless, lace wedding dress trend remains popular as the biggest personalities in fashion and leading bridal shops still can’t seem to resist the Kate Middleton effect. Lace wedding dresses can convey a traditional or modern look, depending on where and how the material is embellished.

Trend 5: Fabulous Floral

Everybody knows that lovely flowers and bouquets are a must in weddings. But the floral motif trend shows that flowers need not just be held or placed on tables, you can also wear it by sewing rosettes and other floral details on your dress. You can take inspiration from Badgley Mischka and Marchesa’s designs. Remember not to go overboard, though, else look like an enormous rose bush.

On your wedding day, make sure you dress your best by embracing any of these bridal fashion trends. Choose a wedding dress that fits your personality and captivate your groom—and the rest of your guests—as you walk down the aisle in style.
