The Wedding Gowns Trends for 2012

Floral patterns, embedded with crystal, long or short, this year’s wedding gowns are romantic and chic. This summer, the embroidered flowers are worn sparingly to provide a countryside picnic atmosphere or, on the contrary, abundantly for a total look of garden party. No matter which of the two options is chosen, they appear on all the wedding gowns displayed on the runways, except for those models where geometrical patterns set the tone.

For small or big breasts equally, the strapless dress will certainly turn the bride into a princess, provided she keeps her shoulders back and steps gracefully. This year, it is the hottest trend and it comes in various forms: While most of them are long, playing on ruffles and shades of colors on the lower part, with Valentino, the strapless wedding dress comes in a tulip shape, revealing a lot of the woman’s silhouette.


Vaporous, transparent and bearing a pastel color, the swirling veil is set in a tiara with Elie Saab, sewn on the shoulders or hips with Maxime Simoens. The latter fashion designer recommends for the spring-summer weddings of 2012 geometrical patterns set by embroidered fabric straps. The dress can go down to the ankles or it can stop right where the straps finish their elegant game.

Graphic cuts, excessive bulk, cosmic accessories, these are the features trying to tempt adventurous young girls into an atypical modern marriage. While the traditional type of women can go for lace dresses adorned by large floral details or they can choose to decorate a classical white dress by means of a wide strap on which an exquisite model of brooch lies, with Iris Van Herpen the whole outfit looks like a dragonfly and Jean Paul Gaultier brings a science-fiction touch with the cone shaped vale set on a graphical golden dress.
