Top 10 2011 Wedding Dress Trends


Dynamic shapes, insatiable fabrics, and over the top embellishments mark the top 2011 wedding dresses. It’s hard to believe that wedding dress designers are able to reinvent the classic wedding gown year after year, but they do so with success.

  1. Short and Sweet: One of the trends this year is the classic cocktail length wedding dress. This 2011 wedding style is perfect for the adventurous bride who can’t contain her sass.
  2. Tulle & Luscious Lace: You won’t escape the combination of tulle with delicate lace appliqués this year. Look for intricate lace details and designs close to the hem and on the train.
  3. Embellishments Galore: One of the top 2011 fashion trends includes embroidered floral and lace dress detailing, crystal beading, and rhinestones—oh my!
  4. Busy Belts: Wedding gown belts? Yes! Embellished belts? Yes! Keep an eye out for decadently bejeweled wedding belts.
  5. Ball Gowns: Billowy skirts are one of the hottest 2011 wedding dress trends that include layer upon layer of tulle that would make any bride feel like a princess.
  6. Romance: For those romantics out there you’re in luck! This year you’ll find an abundance of organza, chiffon, tulle, lace, and last but not least taffeta. These super-light materials and fabrics will make you feel light as a feather as you make your way down the aisle on your big day.
  7. Big Bouquets: Wedding dress designers have put a magnifying glass to flower embellishments to bring them into full bloom. Also look for dresses adorned with flower petals along the shoulder straps and hem.
  8. Insatiable Sheer Neckline: Don’t be surprised to find sheer fabrics accompanying that sweetheart, v-neck, or one-shouldered neckline you’ve been dreaming about.
  9. Two Piece: The classic wedding gown now comes in two pieces! Stylish separates is a wedding dress trend that you won’t want to escape from. This is a fantastic option for the bride who wants to change into something more comfortable for the reception.
  10. Sultry Spirals: Beautifully bulky spirals have taken ruffles to a new level.
