Every bride wants to look beautiful on her wedding day, and whether she’s going for a classic and traditional look or a fresh and unique style, she wants to feel special.

Every year, top designers reinvent the wedding dress to offer a range of styles, and some exciting new trends are on the horizon for 2014. With wedding season looming, let’s take a look at some of the hottest styles of the year.

Colors…Other Than White or Ivory?

The biggest trend in bridal fashion is using fabric in colors other than white. Designers like Vera Wang showcased both bold and soft colors in recent collections, and many brides are turning to more colorful gowns to suit their personality, skin tone, and unique style.

Proving to be the most popular colors are those with lighter tones such as blush pink and dove gray, but some brides are choosing darker colors for the walk down the aisle.

Lace & More Lace

A classic bridal gown feature, lace is always in style, but particularly in 2014. With its glamorous, timeless, vintage feel, lace can take a simple dress to the next level. Check out some examples from this year’s gorgeous trend here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/15/lace-wedding-gowns_n_4952120.html?utm_hp_ref=mostpopular

Florals

Embellishments are a subtle way to add interest to classic styles, and floral is in for this wedding season. Even just a few floral details can make a dress look and feel special. Try a floral waist accent with a touch of sparkle to draw the eye to the smallest part of your torso while upping the bling factor.

Slimmer Styles

Though many brides still elect to have the big ballroom-style skirt, others are shifting toward slimmer styles that are easier to move and dance in. These styles are sleek, sophisticated, and sexy. A bonus? Less fabric means a lower price tag. Slimmer styles are also great for less formal or more intimate ceremonies.

Budget Dresses

Weddings are expensive and budget-conscious brides aren’t looking to spend thousands of dollars on a designer gown. In response, a number of budget-friendly yet gorgeous styles are appearing on the market. Some designers have taken to creating cheaper lines for discount bridal retailers. A bride on a budget can still look her best!
