2012 Trend: Feminine Wedding Dresses

To start 2012, I gave my predictions on what the top 10 wedding trends of 2012 will be… to start here is #10: Feminine Wedding Dresses.

Lace.  Ruffles.  Corsets.  Princess Chic.

The major wedding events of 2011 like the Royal Wedding, fictional Bella Swan’s wedding, Dylan Lauren, and Lauren Bush had a huge impact on the styles of 2012 wedding dresses.  At the Fall Bridal Market in NYC, designers emphasized very feminine details, tight waists, sexy necklines, high slits, flowing skirts, simple silk to detailed Chantilly lace, ruffles, and florals.

Here are some of my favorites that epitomize these trends:

Monique Lhuillier 2012 Collection

Lazaro 2012 Collection

Although the color theme trended to traditional white/ivory wedding dresses, Vera Wang’s 2012 Collection made a bold statement with these tan and black wedding dresses.

To add to all the feminine details, I’m loving these wedding accessories
