Wedding Dress Trends - Top Wedding Dress Styles for the Modern Bride

Post by tinheart07 on Wed Jan 13, 2010 8:32 pm

Weddings are all about personal style. Reflecting the overall trend of breaking away from tradition and steadfast rules, modern brides are choosing wedding gowns that reflect their personality rather than that of their grandmother’s. The only rule for wedding dress style these days is to choose one that suits you, whether that means a golden wedding dresses, trouser suit or short wedding dresses. And even if you are more traditional and inclined towards the fairy princess in a white stretch satin wedding dresses, you need not worry about being perceived as old fashioned or “not with the times.” The modern “rule” for wedding dress style is to choose something that makes you feel comfortable and beautiful on your most special day.
The 21st Century Bride -
That said, although certain traditional dress styles are always popular, bridal fashion does follow mainstream fashion to some extent. So if you are looking for something a little more contemporary or “now,” consider turning to the catwalks for inspiration.
The currently popular 20s–and floral–style dresses can be easily incorporated into a wedding dress. Accessories, such as belts and chandelier earrings, can also transfer from the catwalks to comprise your wedding look. Try to avoid fashion that will date quickly, however, as you will want to display your wedding photographs for a long time. As a general rule, keep your wedding ensemble fashionably forward, not overly trendy.
Today’s Hot Wedding Dress Trends:
Add Some Color -
Using a wedding dress to bring out a colorful personality, modern brides are not afraid to add a splash of color to the traditional white wedding dresses.

Particularly popular shades are blue, pink, cappuccino and champagne. Believe it or not, black wedding dresses recently dazzled the runways for 2007.
