From wedding dress minis to wearing two-piece sets, here are the top five bridal dress trends on the year-end style list
It's the age of innovation, alright! And it's happening with weddings, too. After personalised invites and gift registries, bridal dresses are also seeing the flux. More brides today are breaking free from tradition and sporting new and offbeat styles. Here's taking a look at a few of them...
Mini and tea-length Who says you can't go short if it's not summer? The year-end bridal trends are spreading sexy vibes with minis, tea-length (mid-calf) and long-short hemlines. They're also ideal to grab attention towards your pretty bridal shoes. Moreover, they're apt if you want to heat up the dance floor on your big day.
Colour it up Yes, coloured gowns are 'in' too. If pink makes you a blushing bride, try peach, mauve and nudes. The dip-dyed trend, at the rim of the dress, is another option for all those who can't give in to colour completely.
One shoulder The asymmetrical trend is an apt way to show off your toned shoulders. You can personalise the strap — try a ruched one to match the bodice, heavy floral embroidery, glam it up with beads, let the strap crisscross over the bodice and shoulder, or try a satin ribbon one. This is as alluring as it is creative.
Two-pieceThe crop top trend has been ruling the ramp this year. And now, the exposed midriff has made its way onto bridal dressing, too. The two-piece look, which lends a cool quotient to the whole look, is a modern spin on the dress. If you want to stay warm, go with a chic white faux bolero. Illusion neckline Nothing reflects sensuality better than a barely there neckline. The look is flirty, frothy and fairy-like. And gowns with embroidery, delicate crystals, rhinestones, pearls and more on the neckline, were seen in most of the Fall 2014 Other style additions Lace sleeves: Lace sleeves went glam, thanks to royal bride Kate. They lend a touch of old-world charm.Wearing a cape: Works perfectly to help you survive the winter chill. Crisscross back: A spillover from the open-back fashion trend of Fall 2013, this one is bold and definitely sexy. You can do the 'X' in lace or crystals. Transformer: This is a long train or sheer skirt that can be detached to show a short dress underneath.collection.
