Wedding Dress Trends for 2011


What's hot for 2011?

 Here's a hint: It's all in the details.

The Trend: Supersize Flower Skirts
Three-dimensional floral details originally debuted a few seasons ago. They started small—a few petals here, an organza flower there—but my, how they've grown! This season, enormous flowers sprouted from skirts on backgrounds of organza, or literally became the skirts. Lush, plush, and so very, very romantic.

The Trend: Corset Bodices
Since they create a flattering, cinched-in hourglass silhouette, built-in corsets are a mainstay of many a wedding gown style. This season, some designers used the boning or sturdy seaming that help corsets do their thing as a prominent, visible design element. The result is a lingerie-inspired, undeniably sexy option for brides who want to revel in their feminity, and show off their curves.

The Trend: Head-to-Toe Dimension
Several designers piled on the appliqués, lace, beading, 3-D flowers and embroidery (sometimes all at the same time) for brides who are not looking for "something simple" thank you very much. When a gown with just a dash of sparkle or embellishment just isn't "special" enough, these lavishly decorated, tactile creations may be the answer.

The Trend: Dots
From point d'esprit lace to Swiss-dot cotton, spotted fabrics can make wedding gowns feel sweet, ladylike, and sometimes, a little bit country.

The Trend: Pearls
A strand of pearls is a classic bridal accessory, and this season, the soft, luminous gems made several appearances: we spotted them on a micro minidress, an ethereal, Grecian-inspired gown's sash, and heaped on the bodice of a glamorous, red-carpet wedding gown.

The Trend: Sequins
You might think that sequins are reserved for over-the-top prom and pageant gowns. We thought that, too. But by using ivory or pastel-colored sequins, bridal designers were able to make wedding gowns glisten in a subdued way, which marked a major departure from the heavy crystal beading we've seen in the past.

The Trend: Shimmer Tulle
Light and airy tulle ballgowns have ruled the runway for several seasons; with a little hint of glitter woven into the fabric, the look is part Cinderella, part Snow Queen.

The Trend: Tonal Beading
If you like a shimmery, richly detailed look, but think chunky, silvery crystal beading is too much (or downright gaudy), a few designers presented the perfect solution: wedding gowns embellished with ivory, white, or opalescent beading that blends in with the color of the wedding gown.
