Fall 2010 Bridal Gown Trend Report

Last spring I did a post featuring the upcoming fall bridal collections that had just debuted.  Now, I've gone through the photos again, actually made some sense of them, and a few clear trends really popped out at me!  Take a look...

Edwardian Silhouette
It's essentially a high waisted fishtail skirt paired with a fitted corset top whose waistline hits right below the bustline.  This style looks fab on brides who are on the taller side
Clockwise from top left:  Vera Wang, Reem Acra, Ines di Santo, Judd Waddell, Monique Lhuillier, Anne Barge, Monique Lhuillier, Reem Acra

Empire Waist
Comfy, feminine, and can look great on any shape if it's cut correctly.  Josephine would be proud
Clockwise from top left: Priscilla of Boston, Claire Pettibone, Douglas Hannant, Adele Wechsler, Melissa Sweet, Douglas Hannant


Lace sleeves/neckline
For years brides have been complaining at the lack of options outside the strapless realm... well, here are some lovely Grace Kelly-style options

Moody Colors
These dark, romantic styles may not be for everyone, but they're still so fun!
Clockwise from top: Vera Wang, Tara Keely, Blush by Jim Hjelm, Ramona Keveza, Modern Trousseau, Badgely Mischka, Oscar de la Renta, Melissa Sweet


Just a few weeks ago I reported that rosettes are in for maids dresses.  Well they are even more popular in bridal gowns- they were everywhere!

Textured Skirts
All sorts of couture-style texture was happening on the runways this season

Tulle A-Lines
Channel your inner ballerina and choose a tulle a-line gown because they're everywhere (along with a-lines in all other fabrics too!)
Clockwise from top left: Ulla Maija, Kenneth Pool, Christos, Amsale, Junko Yoshioka, Reem Accra


Light, Airy Fabrics
Light, airy fabrics like silk organza, net, and chiffon were all over the place too.  So pretty and so comfy!
