The 2011 wedding dress trends are out and the collections are full of exciting new directions and wonderful ideas. All the best designers have put together their best dresses they have created and showed them on the bridal fashion show.
One of the first trends that were easily noticeable was flower fantasy. Blooms, blossoms, and buds could be found on the dresses being worn by the models up and down the runway. Dresses with skirts covered in roses, delicate silk petals, and giant flowers made this trend very apparent and a great hit with the audience and brides. Designers such as Monique Lhuillier, Claire Pettidone, and Rivini were prime examples who truly caught the theme of the flower fantasy.
For any bride that is a sucker for romantics, this next trend it right up your alley. The new romantic trend was filled with tulle, chiffon, organza, light taffeta, and lace, options were endless and will make any bride feel like a princess walking down the aisle. Reem Acra, Walter & Walter, and Elizabeth Fillmore have prime time examples that will make any bride rethink their wedding dress to the romantic style.
Big ball gowns are back, or as the trend say: SUPERSIZE IT. Delicate fabrics are used to create these dresses to be light and airy, which are then balanced out by either the defining waist line and/or a highlight focused towards the shoulders. Designers who truly understood the idea of big, bold ball gowns were Platinum’s, Pnina Tornai, Ines di Santo, Claire Pettibone, and Kenneth Pool.
Our third trend is one you do not see very often, but it becoming more popular. Got leg is all about the knee-length, minis, and super-mini options available for brides. Priscilla of Boston even went as far as a romper under a sheer, full overskirt. Jenny Packham is able to give sophisticated options and show that sometimes less is really more.
Finally, the last trend is known as Mrs. Clean. This new trend is all about the shape, textures, and refined details. If big and bold is not your style, Mrs. Clean is the option you are looking for. This trend offers simple and elegance, yet something extra to make your dress pop. Sharp neck lines and cut outs can be seen by designer Angel Sanchez. Douglas Hannant and Amsale are also designers who showed perfectly tailored dresses and 60’s inspired retro bell shaped options.
These are just a few of the trends and designers of 2011, find a trend that fits yourself and your wedding day will be just as you dreamed.
