2014 Wedding Trends Part 2

The top 2014 wedding gown trends are sure to get your inner fashionista’s pulse racing. While still remaining chic and elegant, wedding gowns for 2014 are taking a contemporary spin on the traditional wedding gown, which will spark your own unique style to emerge. Sleeves on wedding dresses are no longer a thing of past but a fashion-forward style trend of 2014 bridalwear. Once perceived as heavy and matronly, sleeves have evolved into a sleek and modern wedding dress style (thank you, Kate Middleton). Whether you are having a rustic backyard wedding or a grand soiree in a museum, there is a wedding gown with sleeves that can fit your style. And sleeves are always extremely flattering.


Practical and fashionable, wraps and capes, another 2014 trend, are sure to be the bridal accessory to elevate your bridal look to the next level (and will keep you warm while looking beautiful). A winter wonderland wedding is the perfect occasion for a fur cape. But wraps are not exclusively for a snowy wedding; a delicate lace scarf or a pearl caplet is a romantic enhancement to any gown.


If you are looking for drama, then the open-back wedding gown is the trend for you. The daring open back is ultra feminine and unquestionably sensual. Designers are paying extra attention not only to the front of the gowns but also to the back, ensuring both a fabulous entrance and exit!


Looking amazing on your wedding day is a trend that will never go out of style. There are truly some innovative and breathtaking designs emerging in wedding gowns for 2014. If you see a trend you love, but think it won’t work for you, my advice is at least to consider it. What other time in your life will you have the chance to try on fabulous gowns? You might be surprised that you fall in love with a gown or accessory you have never imagined yourself wearing.
