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.
