PANTS

We love this modern day take on the wedding dress! With an aura of authority, it's time to show everyone who's going to wear the pants in your marriage.

giant bows

If you’re like me and adore bows, this trend is perfect for you. Gone are NOT the days of Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper, since giant bows are expected to be among this season’s popular wedding dress trends.

short dresses

Who says wedding dresses have to have long trains? If you’re planning on having a summer wedding, you’re in luck - short dresses are in, and this this may be the perfect opportunity to avoid overheating during your ceremony.

pearls

Although always prevalent in wedding culture, pearls have stolen the spotlight in this year's BFW show. From Monique Lhuillier to Houghton, almost every designer this year has featured pearls in their styles in some way (fun fact: pearls graced all 21 of Naeem Khan's runway looks!). Whether it be used for sleeves, accessories, or embellishments, expect to see a lot of pearls next spring.

gloves

Dress like you're ready to party it up with Marilyn Monroe and Queen Elizabeth with this olden day classic! Gloves are expected to make a comeback this season, whether it be in the classic white, untraditional black (a departure from weddings' white sanctuary and a budding trend to look out for) or mesh.

Following another spring and summertime trend, bare shoulder styles have now made its way to the wedding industry. Stay cool on your big day while showing off your shoulders with this spring and summer favorite!

capes + capelets

Not all heroes wear capes... but those who do are brides ready to become the heroine of the household. Channel your inner superhero with an elegant cape or capelet draped over your shoulders to top off your wedding look!
