2010 bridal trends – embellishments, florals and feathers

29 Jan

2010 brides are following the trends of 2009, but with more feminine details.

Expect to see pops of black on the gown – like this Vera Wang. Actually, many dresses in Vera Wang’s 2010 collection had a bit of black, typically as a sash or gloves.

The most popular 2010 wedding dress embellishments include:

  • floral appliques or a floral belt
  • feather trim
  • a single large bow
  • metallic details
  • asymmetrical neckline

Anything goes in 2010, with the exception of the basic strapless. A mix of details, folds or layers make dresses seem more artistic and anything but boring.

Brides will be wearing dresses that range from the traditional (floor length, with or without a train) to the mini-dress. Made popular in the last 3 years, short and mini wedding dresses are going to continue to be seen in 2010 – anything from retro-style dresses to super-sleek. If you choose a short or mini dress, make certain to invest in show-stopper shoes.

For bridesmaids and wedding accent colors, pink is super-popular in 2010, in hues ranging from blush to bubblegum, from dusty rose to fuchsia. Bridesmaids can also be seen in lavender, green and blue – popular colors from 2009.

Another top color for 2010 is orange – but brides beware. Orange looks good with a select few skintones, and can make the bride and her maids look a bit ill if the color is wrong.

I found this fabulous, vintage-style bridesmaid dress

25 Nov

This dress is so awesome – the sheer fabric, bow-top shoulders, tulle-peeking-out-of-the skirt and fabulous vintage-y color. How lovely would it be with golden pumps or cowboy boots. I want to see a line of bridesmaids sporting this dress with their hair down in loose curls. Or, a bride wearing this beauty to her rehearsal dinner.

Find it at Target on December 20th – part of the Rodarte for Target collection.
