Weddings are definitely one of the most important occasions for any bride as well as the groom, and every bride to be wants to look her absolute best. Probably the most important piece of the puzzle is the wedding dress and choosing one can be really difficult as the trends in wedding dresses change from year to year and season to season.
So we have decided to try and make your decisions a little easier by providing you with ideas and some pictures on our top 10 wedding dress trends for 2010.
1. 50’s Glamour Wedding Dresses
Think Audrey Hepburn, think glamor. Dresses made from silk or satin decorated with belted waist lines, faux pearls, sequins, fitted sleeves and scoop necklines. It is easy to picture why 50’s style wedding dresses come across as glamorous. Today’s wedding dress designers are designing dresses that reflect the 1950’s, so a wedding dress from that era might be just what your looking for.
2. The Single (Bold) Shoulder Wedding Dress
From Michelle Obama to movie stars on the red carpet, the asymmetrical single shoulder trend has crossed over into the bridal world to add a new spin to the standard strapless gown. If you want to show off a beautiful neckline and slender arms then the single shoulder gown is a great option for your special day. This look is more for smaller bust girls and not recommended for broad shoulders.
3. Wedding Dresses with Standout Bows
Whether it is a droopy satin style or a well placed structured bow, the look is reminiscent of fairy tales. Big or small in the front or on the back, why not add a bow into your fairy tale of a wedding as you tie the knot.
4. Metallic Fabrics for Wedding Dresses
Designers are trying to capture the bright and full of fun atmosphere of a wedding with the use of metallic fabrics in beautiful ways. Shine your way done the wedding aisle embellished with metallic sashes, lace and flowers.
5. Wedding Outfits with Bits of Black
Gone are the days of the pure all white look. Delve into the slightly naughty nature of yourself by adding touches of black into your outfit by incorporating a black sash, black flowers, or maybe even some black beading on your dress.
6. Sexy Sleek Silhouettes
Sexy, figure-hugging wedding dress silhouettes will be hot for the next couple of seasons as designers have made it even better by beautifying them and making them a far more practical option. Walking with these gowns is no longer an art that needs to be mastered. So if you have that fit body that you have been spending months in the gym working on then why not show it off.
7. Ball Gown Style Wedding Dresses
The ball gown style is perfect for those brides envisioning a Cinderella wedding. The ball gown is a great style for most body shapes hiding the lower body whilst emphasizing the bust region. The ball gown is most appropriate for large, traditional weddings where the dress will be consistent with the formality of the event.
8. Mermaid Style Wedding Dress
Also taking it styling from the fifties, the mermaid silhouette contours to the body from the chest to the knee, then flares out to the hem. This is a very sexy look that highlights the curves of a woman’s body. For this reason, you must be confident and comfortable in your skin to pull off this dramatic style.
9. Tea Length Wedding Dress
Yet another trend which has roots back to the fifties, the tea length wedding dress is for a more relaxed less traditional wedding. Tea length’s are a must choice if you are wanting to show off a gorgeous pair of really expensive shoes like your new Jimmy Choo’s as the length of the dress ends in the middle between the knee and the ankle.
10. Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses
Our last trend for 2010 is not actually for your wedding dress but in fact for your bridesmaid dresses. Choose only a color, then let your bridesmaids find an off-the-rack dress that they like. Not only does this take some pressure off of you, but it also ensures that women are choosing a dress they like and they’ll be likely to actually wear again. However make sure they run their choices by you first, after all it is your big day.
