2014 Trends in Wedding Dress: What Brides Will Be Wearing

by Avid Thinker January 29, 2014

Each bride-to-be has a different idea of what she wants to wear on her big day. Some like to be like Cinderella and put on a ball gown and tiara, while others long for simplicity. Whichever is the case, one of the best sources for ideas on what their dress should look like are wedding dress trends.

Here are some trends worth noting:

Less is more

Gone are the days of lavish attention to beads and other embellishments. Designers have opted for a more sleek and modern look for brides by promoting the “less is more” philosophy.

Criss-cross backs

Thanks to the open-back trend that was big in the fall of 2013, designers have ridden on the popularity, but this time adding a new dimension: the shape of the X. Criss-crosses can be done in lace or embellished with crystals.

Ankle-length hemlines

For brides who are afraid of tripping over in a long wedding dress, one with a shorter hemline is a welcome sight.

Lace sleeves

Thanks to the dress worn by Kate Middleton on her wedding day, the appearance of delicate lace sleeves will continue to be a trend for some time.

Ombré

Ombré basically means two-toned. Brides who love a pop of colour on their wedding dress, but couldn't decide on which ones will delight in this choice.

Above-the-knee dresses

One of the biggest weddings trends 2014 is definitely the shorter hemline. This kind of dress is suited for the bride who loves to move around, and expects to do a lot of dancing at the reception. Rather than carry a train around and constantly think about tripping over in a floor-length dress, a shorter alternative is a welcome thought.

So, if you're about to get married, taking a look at wedding dress trends can definitely help you narrow down your choices or give you ideas on what your wedding day outfit should look like.
