Aria by Dana Harel


Most wedding dresses feature internal corsets because they accentuate the bride’s waist and bust, providing structure to your gown. However, an exposed corset is rapidly taking hold of the bridal world, with sheer fabric accenting the bodice this trend adds a sultry edge. Corset wedding dresses are a popular choice for the modern bride seeking a contemporary, yet romantic look!


Classic Lace

Classic lace enchants with its traditional, vintage appeal. For the bride dreaming of floating down the aisle in a timeless look, a classic lace wedding dress draws inspiration from another era’s fashion, creating romantic altar attire that you will love in every decade just as much as you did on the day you said, “I do!”


Unique Appliques

Hope by Valentini Spose


Unique appliqués are certainly making their mark in this year’s bridal trends, creating looks that stray away from tradition and feel straight out of a fairytale. We’re seeing this trend take many forms, from floating vine-like lace appliqués as shown in the Valentini Spose gown above, to fluttering butterflies, polka-dot pearls, and more.



Giselle by Flora


Fashion minimalism moves over as statement-making, avant-garde styling takes center stage! Glimmering wedding dresses capture the glamorous bride’s heart and ensure all her guests know that the life of the party has arrived. This shimmering texture can be created using glitter, rhinestone embellishments, sequins, or all of the above!


Asymmetrical Accents

Art meets fashion with asymmetrical accents. Asymmetric wedding dresses make their own rules, creating balance in new and unexpected ways. From one-shoulder sleeves to carefully placed adornments and fabric structuring, as shown in the various paneling details on the Anne Barge Couture wedding gown’s bodice above.
