Turn Your Aisle Into a Runway With the 6 Hottest Bridal Trends

Apr 18 2014 - 7:25am

Let's face it, by the end of Bridal Fashion Week, one white dress can easily look like the next. And after you've seen 20 of them coming and going, it's easy to lose focus.

Thank goodness designers like Reem Acra [1], Monique Lhuillier [2], Oscar de la Renta [3], and Carolina Herrera [4] have shaken things up this season with a new batch of runway trends and noteworthy details [5]. Whether it's a deeply plunging neckline, hint-of-color hue, or pretty minibows, if you want something new, these designers have your something new!

Hint of Hue

After a few seasons of shockingly saturated [12] colors on the bridal runway, designers are giving us a breath of fresh air with just a hint of hue. Blink and you'd miss the pale robin's egg blue or blush on Monique Lhuillier [13] and Marchesa [14]'s runways — but why would you blink when dresses this beautiful are floating by?

Brush Off Your Shoulder

Romantic brides will appreciated the seductively slung straps shown at Oscar de la Renta [19] and Jenny Pakcham's shows. Even if you're not a romantic at heart, if you've got the décolletage, flaunt it!

The White-Glove Treatment

Gloves? Stuffy? Not for this crew. Studded, leather, and embellished designs shown at Naeem Khan [26] and Vera Wang [27] are not your mother's dainty designs.

Taking the Plunge

In seasons past, it may have been about the sexy back, but for this go around, the view is 180. Labels like Reem Acra, Naeem Khan [34], and Carolina Herrera [35] took the plunge for Spring — and where Reem, Naeem, and Carolina go we are sure brave brides will follow.

Little Bow Peep

You could argue that bowed wedding [42] gowns fall short of qualifying for "novel," but what's wrong with embracing old traditions? Delicate, miniloops nipped the waist and punctuated some of the freshest looks from Carolina Herrera [43] and Monique Lhuillier [44].

Going to Great (Sleeve) Lengths

Call it the Kate Effect, but sleeves are here to stay. But just because Middleton wore long sleeves, doesn't mean brides can't have a bit more fun with them. For Spring, Marchesa [49] and Carolina Herrera [50] rolled up their sleeves to three-quarter and cropped lengths.
