Bridal Runway Report

The looks we are loving this season

THE TREND: Let the gown also be your accessory. Flowing or structured, we’re loving the look of a chic cape.

“Capes add a touch of grace and elegance to a gown.” –Christina Plumlee, The Bridal Salon at Neiman Marcus

cutouts

THE TREND: Silhouettes are getting a bit more risqué with the look of strategically placed slits and sheer insets.

off-the-shoulder-wedding-dresses

THE TREND: Dare to bare your décolletage in this fashion-forward neckline.

“Off-the-shoulder styles are popular in ready to wear, so it makes sense that these designer touches are all the rage in wedding gowns.” –Marsha Ballard French, StarDust Celebrations
