One of the major trends the bridal gown industry is moving toward is the soft, sleek, goddess-like silhouette. You are going to be seeing much less unnecessary fabric and beading and a lot more simplicity and understated elegance. For spring bridal dresses, this is especially appropriate, as spring connotes a “light and airy" feel. Here are a few key trends for spring bridal gowns:
Bridal dresses that are one-shoulder, or off the shoulder, are extremely popular. The one-shoulder trend is perfect for brides who do not want to go strapless, (it seems at least 90% of all the brides we see opt for a strapless dress!), but who love that strapless dresses are flattering to the upper body. With a one-shoulder dress, you can have the best of both worlds. Also, it is a classic look that is always in style.
Another trend for spring bridal dresses is the short dress. Depending on how formal your venue is, short wedding dresses can be chic, elegant, and a bit more unique than floor-length gowns. Some brides actually look better in short skirted wedding gowns than in longer ones; it just depends on your style and body type. Just make sure that to choose a design that flatters you.
Lastly, bridal fashion is moving away from the huge ball gowns. You do want to feel like a princess, but remember: this isn’t prom. Also, less fabric can be more flattering, more elegant, and definitely more in style.
