Keep it simple
Some designs have been simple in shape and look such as Valentino. Traditional designs have such as traditional A-line that gowns have been modified to give them a modern twist. Soft silk material has helped create this soft, feminine simple look.
Trouser suits have always been presented as an alternative for bridal wear and again they make their appearance. There have been wide-legged trousers (by Antonio Grimaldi) and cigarette pant trouser suits (by Viktor and Rolf) appearing on the catwalk.
Choosing your outfit is one piece of the puzzle and it requires careful planning to make sure the venue, your accessories, the decoration, and the whole setting all complement the overall look you wish to achieve.
Designs from the likes of Chanel and Dior showcased bridal outfits with full skirts and column gowns, focussing on the bride’s physique, creating a romantic and feminine look.
Brides looking to add glamour only need look at designer Ziad Nakad to see top to bottom marabou or hemlines adorned with feather rosettes by Ralph Russo. Also, Fendi and Zuhair Murad have shown floral and botanical patterns as new emergents in bridal fashion.
Dress to match
Your venue is important when choosing your dress so that the setting lets you stand out or fit in just as much as you wish. For example, if you are looking for a wedding hotel venue in Gloucestershire and choose somewhere such as http://www.thespeechhouse.co.uk, you will want to make sure that you and your bridesmaids are complemented by your surroundings rather than clashing with it.
Nudes have made an appearance as a shade for bridesmaids, as in the mushroom tea dress by Christian Dior. Shades can be chosen to complement different skin tones. Inky blue is another trending colour and Elie Saab has a wonderful teal coloured design perfect for summer. A darker toned design like navy would work well for winter, like that by Chanel.
