It may seem like trends don’t apply to wedding dresses, but just look at Mom’s wedding photos to see how much they do change. For a stylish but timeless look, know which trends to try -- and which to pass by
Love It: Pearls
This classic gemstone has always been a favourite jewelry option for brides, but now it's becoming a go-to trimming for dress designers too. Unlike glitzier crystals, pearl beads have a more subtle sheen, so they can be the perfect embellishment if you're looking for a wedding gown with more understated glamour.
Dress by Ines DiSanto.
Although the dresses are lovely, bear in mind that if you are getting married in a church, especially a Catholic church, the wedding is seen as a Holy unity, not a fashion show. Deep V necks, extreme pushup corsets and thigh-high slits are totally inappropriate for a church wedding. I know of several clergy that ask to see a picture of the dress before the wedding. If you want to avoid having to borrow Grandma's shawl and safety pinning everything, I suggest you keep it modest.
Okay...the person who wrote this article clearly did not do their research on some of the dresses, or at least one, because the "Pearl" Ines DiSanto dress is actually NOT pearls, it's Swarovski crystals...http://inesdisanto.com/collections/springsummer-2012/gowns/image/blair, which is funny because the write-up specifically discusses them versus crystals. It seems like this was hastily slapped together to me. Some photos of the trends aren't the best either, like the one for feathers. There had to be tons of more attractive options to showcase that detail. The one they used seems to me like a do NOT do.
