Grecian Styles Are a Great Bridal Trend

Grecian style gowns have been popular for years, but they’re set to be a huge trend for 2014 and 2015 brides. They are easy to wear, flattering, and come in many different varieties, meaning there’s a Grecian for every bride.

The basic element of the Grecian silhouette is a full length dress with an empire waist. Most styles feature a ruched bodice and straight skirt, but there are exceptions to the rule. The most common fabric for Grecian gowns is chiffon, as it offers an ethereal look that is perfect for the Greek goddess style.

Grecian wedding dresses were a big trend at New York Bridal Week last month. Designers love this silhouette, giving it embellishments like belts, straps, and flowing trains.

It’s also a perfect choice if you want to let your accessories shine. The simplicity of the silhouette is beautiful while allowing the other aspects of your attire to get the attention they deserve.

Wearing a Jacket with Your Wedding Gown

A jacket can provide modesty, warmth, and comfort as part of your wedding attire. However, you can’t just choose any old white cardigan for your wedding day. A bridal jacket is something special. Here are some tips for finding one that suits your wedding gown.

  • Use the same designer: The first step should be checking if the dress designer offers jackets. This can be the best way to ensure that the fabric matches exactly.
  • Add a splash of color: A jacket is a good way to add a little pop of color to your wedding style. Whether you opt for a bold color or a pastel, having a non-white bolero can be a perfect choice.
  • Try on different styles: Much like finding your wedding dress, finding a wedding jacket will require trying things on. Make sure you have your gown on, as something that looks good over a tank top won’t look right over your beaded bodice.
  • Decide on sleeve length: If you are expecting you’ll be cold, think about full sleeves. If you just want to cover your shoulders, try a cap-sleeved style. The length of sleeves you need will be determined by whether you want the jacket as an accessory or for a functional purpose.

Whatever type of jacket you want to wear for your wedding, come by our Salt Lake City bridal salon to check out the different choices you have available to you. We’ll help you find the perfect style for your big day.

Fabric

When it comes to choosing fabric for a summer wedding dress, you have to go for one made from light fabrics. Your options include light satins, silk, and chiffon. Lace is another material you can work with, especially if you want to add a romantic touch to your wedding dress. Paired with a silky chiffon skirt, you can create an illusion of a flowy dress that will be beautiful to look at with your every step.

Style

For a summer wedding, you can follow the current trend by wearing a short, tea-length dress. Look for one made out of a soft lace material and adorned with a satin belt on the waist. Pair it with a colorful heels and your sure to achieve a beautiful vintage look on your wedding.

If you are having an evening outdoor wedding, you can wear a fashionable wrap or bolero to keep yourself from freezing. This is a good option rather than wearing something uncomfortable like full sleeves during a summer wedding. When you’re at your reception, you can simply remove the bolero so you can show off your gorgeous shoulders!

There is typically a lot of pressure and stress that comes with choosing the perfect gown to wear on your wedding day. Here are the perfect dresses to consider for your Utah spring wedding:

Short Skirts

With the weather heating up, many brides opt for a non-traditional short dress. Tea-length and above-the-knee dresses are fun, flirty, and perfect for a wedding held during the warmer season.

Modest, Marvelous, and On Trend: Sleeved Wedding Gowns

Finding a dress that combines the modesty you want with a fantastic, on-trend style might not be easy. However, one of the big bridal trends for 2013 and 2014 is sleeves, and many of these styles are perfect for your needs.

The trend really gained steam when Kate Middleton wore a sleeved Alexander McQueen style on her wedding day. Her dress is still a great inspiration for many bridal designers. Her famous dress combined an illusion neckline and lace sleeves for a timeless look.

There are many variations on her dress, including shorter sleeved versions, and off-the-shoulder adaptations. Both of these are great for brides who want the style but don’t feel comfortable in full neck-to-wrist sleeves.

You aren’t limited to lace styles, though. There are also many other designers who are using sleeves to give an elegant style with the hint of long princess perfect gloves. These, too, can be found in a variety of lengths and necklines.
