5 Wedding Dress Trends From the Spring/Summer 2014 Runway Collections

When the trees start to bud and the flowers start to bloom you know it’s time to start thinking about Spring & Summer weddings. This week at New York’s Spring/Summer Bridal Market, designers sent their latest delicate creations down the runways. Looking through all the collections online or through lookbooks, some specific details kept emerging. I’ve compiled a list of the 5 strong trends that are making an impact on this season’s dresses. Be ready to swoon, or if you’ve already had a wedding…perhaps re-new your vows?

1. Lace Sleeves:

Delicate lace used for many of these dresses ranged from Chantilly, Venise, Guipure or Schiffli. We can thank the designers’ homage to Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge for this romantic trend that looks to be with us for awhile to come.

2. Detailed Backs:

Designers created open-back keyholes, architectural pleating and modern trains to keep the eye on you, not only as you enter the room but as you dance and twirl during your first dance or exit throwing your bouqet over your shoulder! C’est Magnifique!

3. Eye-catching Embellishments:

It’s about the sparkle, the intricate details from beading, sequins, lace or 3-dimensional flowers that are blooming and popping up all throughout the collections this season.

4. Luxe Layering:

Sheer tulle and organza wraps were floating all over the runways this season. Reem Acra embroidered lovely messages of love in silver thread on her delicate wraps that once on were barely there like a whisper.

5. Above-the-knee Dresses:

This coming season, above-the-knee dresses are making a comeback.  With a throw-back glamorous feel, they offer a fresh new option to that of a floor length gown. With the subtle addition of lace, Swarovski beaded necklines or innovative wraps of tulle they still make a spectacular impact.

There are so many wonderful and magical dresses out there that you will definitely find the one that speaks to you. In the next blog I will show you some lovely options for jewels that will compliment these dresses.  xoxo
