2014 Wedding Dress Predictions
With 2014 in full swing, designers are releasing their latest wedding dress predictions that are expected to dominate the bridal season. Smoking hot predictions include:
Lace – Making a comeback from the Will and Kate’s Royal Wedding in 2011, lace sleeves are expected to dominate wedding dress trends. Varying in style and length, lace sleeves add a dainty, romantic look to dress designs. This year’s dresses are expected to feature clean lines and are much sleeker than last year’s over-the-top vintage-inspired designs. This season will embrace a timeless look. For brides looking to incorporate bold pops of color, this season’s standard ivory and white designs will feature colorful dramatic embroidery overlay, incorporating black, red, gold or silver.
Details – The attention to gown’s backside details will be dramatic. With a vintage appeal, designers are highlighting jeweled embellishments, adding dramatic keyholes, using lace fill-ins and even adding architectural pleating to the back of wedding dresses. Designers are also incorporating delicate pearl strands, loosely draping them to accentuate soft, feminine backside curvatures. Cap lace sleeves also look stunning from the front and behind, adding a barely-there romantic touch to wedding gowns.
Statements – With a lot of sparkle and over the top bling, 2014 will ring in colorful wedding dress accents, such as three-dimensional floral designs and all-over delicate embroidery. The combination of clustered pearls and crystals that delicately cascade down into tasteful décolletage will leave wedding goers in awe.
Knee-Length – Instead of traditional floor length gowns in wedding boutiques, brides can choose from knee-length options. Highlighting stylish details, these knee-length gowns are nothing short of stunning. Featuring lace and bateau necklines, these styles incorporate floral patterns and embrace the elegance of 1950s gowns. Consider channeling the embodiment of Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn by taking a twirl down memory lane. These teacup-style gowns are perfect for destination weddings and are budget-friendly, serving dual purpose at special occasion parties, receptions and ceremonies.
Gold – Forgoing the traditional all white design, gold pearl overlay is making a dramatic comeback in 2014. With a fine touch of detail, dresses will still feel traditional and feature clean lines.
Fabrics – With beading details, designers are focusing on using a variety of fabrics this season, including silk, satin, Chantilly lace, chiffon, embroidered lace and tulle.
