Wedding Dress Trends
Last month, wedding dress designers flocked to New York to show off their Spring/Summer 2014 bridal collections at New York’s Bridal Week. Among the designers were Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier, and Marchesa. What they brought were bold, trendy new styles with every bride in mind. Bold, backless dresses and short skirts were among the most shocking, yet gorgeous designs. Peplum wedding dresses are also making a comeback this season. Capes and wraps are the new compliment to any wedding gown and, this season, are being shown short and long. Now more than ever, brides can show off their own personal style. 2013/2014 has shown that designers are not afraid to take risks with wedding dress design and every bride could be as daring or classic as they wish. Here are a few of the stunning dresses from New York Bridal Week:
On a Wedding Dress Budget?
Want an affordable way to wear the most current and beautiful fashions at your wedding? Try to catch the sample sales! David’s Bridal holds a sample sale in the fall and keep an eye out for Kleinfield’s sample sale (TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress). Another great way to save money on a wedding dress is to buy consignment. Wore it Once, Once Wed, Encore Bridal are all websites that link brides to already worn wedding dresses. With Once Wed, you can find some of the designers list above for up to 80% off the retail value. Encore Bridal has an easy to sort feature so that you can quickly and easily sort through the dresses that are in your price range, style you prefer, color, and much more! Wore it Once is a bit more challenging to find a particular dress that you love, but is still worth checking out! Now every bride can have bridal couture at their finger tips even if you are on a tight budget!
