1840 was a LONG time ago, and while Queen Victoria really set a trend at her wedding by wearing an all white dress, designers are rolling out a whole new movement – Color! No longer are brides trying to prove their innocence with white, eggshell or ivory – they have something else to prove – that they are cutting-edge, fashionable and unique.

Let your fabulous personality show through with a fierce red gown, an artsy patterned dress or a naughty black ensemble…

Lace, Layers, Color – Oh My : Wedding Dress Trends to Love – Part I

Wedding dress styles are ever-changing, and that’s just one of the things that makes them so absolutely fabulous. Designers are always coming up with new ideas, new trends to stand out, and oh my, do they stand out! Especially on the recent bridal runways with lace, color, tear away skirts, layers and oh la la backs. Wedding dresses have never been better!

Let’s start a series. I’m going to call it ‘Oh My : Wedding Dress Trends’ and this is just Part I, so you’ll want to stay tuned.

Oh La La Backs

While your dress may look simple and innocent from the front, once you turn around you’ll show your other side – and it will be looking hawt!

While this level of sexiness can be controversial at weddings, remember, it’s your wedding! So, if you decide to wear a dress with so much back style, you have to rock it, you have to own it, and once you do….your confidence will hush up those who ‘disapprove’.

Dip low, cover your back in lace, play peek-a-boo, experiment with angles, bare it all….
