Spring 2014 Bridal Wear Report

Delicate Shoulders

Transparent, embellished shoulder design adds ethereal detail to both simple and more heavily detailed gowns.  Patterns are often vine-inspired, and embellished with a combination of beading and embroidery


Gowns that sparkle and shine are romantic, and give life to the term "silver lining" .  The effect is seen both in fabric, and as an overall sparkle effect with beading and pailettes.  


Non-tradtiional short skirts are becoming increasingly popular.  As traditional bridal designers embrace this silhouette, the options are not only fun and sexy, but increasingly sophisticated.  Tea-length to above-the-knee feels fresh and youthful.  


High and straight transparent necklines are elegant, without being too conservative.  See-through fabrics are sexy and mysterious, adding a touch of edge to traditional (and not-so traditional) gowns.
