We asked Wedding Ideas magazine Editor, Jade Pearson, to reveal the biggest bridal dress trends for 2014…
High necks have been super-popular this year, and they’re set to become even bigger in 2014. In particular, sheer and lace high necks, à la Audrey Hepburn, will continue to sell out fast. But some designers are going to mix it up, creating high halternecks, which are perfect for destination weddings – chic without being too heavy.
[L-R: Romantica of Devon, True Bride, Alfred Angelo]
We’ll finally see a shift from the plain, lace, vintage trends of late with sparkly embellishments coming through. Although lace will still be popular, it will be amped up with a crystal belt, or the bodice will be adorned with crystals. This will have a dazzling effect under the sun abroad.
[L-R: Ellis Bridals, Mori Lee]
If you’re dreading the thought of dragging a long train behind you as you greet your groom on the beach, fear not! Short dresses are set to fly off the shelves in 2014. From cute tea-length designs to above-the-knee styles, it seems all the designers have featured short hemlines in their new collections. Cute and cool.
From shimmering silks to lightweight chiffons, designers have added floaty layers on top of their skirts to create a magical image of their brides gliding down the aisle. Oh-so-elegant and perfect for overseas weddings.
[L-R: Sophia Tolli, Victoria Jane, Agnes Bridal]
Brides themselves are creating new trends for 2014. Breaking tradition, many brides will change into shorter, fun dresses for the evening, after a long day in a heavier full-length design. It means they can party ‘til dawn without any trouble. Ideal.
Pink flamingos, white sandy beaches, and turquoise waters – these images often...
