2012 brides are lucky brides because they are so pampered by our fashion designers with all kinds of unique wedding dresses. The surprise comes from the fact that many of the styles promoted nowadays are based on old-fashion inspiration. Moreover, some of them are inspired by the real ancient style! It’s the case of our wonderful wedding gown designs that we’re showing below.
The style we picked for today is the Grecian style. This type of look was very popular in ancient Greece and then fashion designers discovered it again in 1810. Now it seems that it has made another great comeback. This type of dress is not very formal or at least not as pompous and elaborated as the traditional ball gown wedding dress. The Grecian goddess look is not based on corsets fluffy skirts, multiple layers and rich embroideries. The contrary, things look simpler and cleaner than this.
Nevertheless, there are a few gorgeous elements of design that makes this type of wear so seductive and one of a kind. The most practiced silhouette in ancient Greece was the column dress. Brides of that time used to wear fluid dresses made with fabric wrappings and high waists. Their gowns also featured straps and a V or round neck. Besides this, perhaps the most impressive specific element of this cultural type of wear is the belt. The bride’s waist was always accented and emphasized by a special accessory. Nowadays we can see empire waist Greek style wedding dresses beautified with stones, belts, sashes, flower fascinators and bows.
This type of emphasis adds more sophistication and brilliance to the simple fluid skirt. The dress is typically full-floor length with a feminine simple line. The bodice and the skirt can feature drapes or it can be simply flowing. The important thing to keep in mind is that these dresses are always made of lightweight fabrics.
Even those that feature various layers are soft and delicate. The volume added to these types of dresses is not heavy or thick, but diaphanous. These types of dresses are very comfortable and this is why so many modern brides are interested in wearing one at their own wedding. They are the ideal selection for a destination wedding.
If you are a simple bride and you’re planning a cozy beach wedding, opt for a column Grecian goddess dress. This style is similar to the sack dress in cut, except for the fact that there is more fullness gathered along the shoulders. The neckline usually features a cowl or a soft and delightful fold. The shoulder can also be accented with rhinestone clasps or other stones. The cinched waists and the vertical folds along the skirt add a beautiful flounce to the bride.
The modern bride can only blush at the sight of a colorful wedding dress. 2012 weddings are more colored than ever before. This trend managed to convince more and more brides every year! We too are drawn to this style and we are even more fascinated by the gorgeous silhouettes released by our talented designers. For today’s post we picked a few of our favorite looks from Lazaro’s latest bridal collection released for this fall. This new bridal line is distinctive and very, very refined.
The fabrics are lightweight, the colors are even softer and the details very delicate. We enjoy very much the idea of wearing a wedding dress with color at the wedding day. And we know that many brides of today are willing to respond positively to this trend. Lazaro has some of the cutest designs for 2012 brides who are planning a fall wedding ceremony. If you want to escape the gloomy autumnal look you can choose a colorful dress. Don’t worry, the style we’re proposing you is not flashy or strident.
The contrary, it is very soft and refined. The hues available in this collection are warm and pastel: blushes, peaches, golds, ivories, champagne creams, grays and silvers, teals and violets. The first gown is our favorite model from this line. The white embroidered top looks classy and fancy, while the diaphanous tiered skirt made of tulle adds the perfect modern touch to it. This model comes with an unusual pastel tinged pattern at the base of the tiers and this is why it is such a special dress for a contemporary bride.
The tiered skirt in soft layers makes a fashionable contrast on the elegant white bodice. The simplicity and etherealness of this outfit are our favorite qualities. Although we’re talking about a ball gown wedding dress, we have to note that this silhouette is very comfortable and easy to wear. The blue and purple tinges added to the tiered skirt are clever color inserts in a white wedding dress, don’t you think? We are sure that the offbeat bride will find this style funky enough for their big day. The next model we’re happy to recommend is based on a blushing peach color.
This nuance is even more expressive and feminine. Pastel color palettes are the trendiest ones in weddings these days. And we personally love the idea of incorporating color in an ethereal tiered wedding dress. This way of inserting a soft nuance in a soft wedding dress is brilliant. These dresses are sublime and elegant, despite the fact that they are not traditional or classically white. We think that even the conventional bride can fall in love with a wedding dress like this one.
Not all brides have a big budget that allows them to purchase a designer dress or a brand new model. The reasons for buying a pre-worn gown for the big day are even more diversified. For instance, there are many women who think that it wouldn’t be right to spend a fortune on a dress that they will only wear once. This is why the idea of renting or buying a used model seems more appropriate. If you are not one of those romantic brides who dream of preserving their gown in their closet as a precious wedding souvenir, perhaps this idea will also fit you.
Those who want to start a wedding dress tradition in their family may have stronger reasons to buy a new gown and keep it until their daughter’s wedding. The idea of wearing a used wedding gown is definitely an affordable alternative for those who are really on a limited budget. It’s not difficult to find a dress that still looks great now that there are so many efficient methods of preservation. Besides this, brides wear their dress at the wedding and then take it off in a perfect condition. If nothing happens during the ceremony and reception to damage the dress, then you can even sell it or rent it to another bride.
It’s mandatory though to check for damages like holes or stains. If the dress requires alterations make sure the price is convenient. It wouldn’t be wise to spend your money on a used wedding dress that also needs secondary modification to fit your figure. These are extra cash that you don’t have to pay when you’re following this option. Pre-worn wedding dresses can be found in specialized shops that sell old, vintage or used outfits. There are many bridal boutiques out there that are based on this philosophy. They usually pick the most beautiful and clean gowns worn by brides and sell them at attractive process.
There are many other cases when certain brides choose to donate their dresses to a center or specialized store. You can look for a beautiful second wedding dress in thrift stores or consignment shops. If you have something similar in your area, don’t hesitate to enter for a couple of minutes. These types of consignments are usually very pretentious about the cloths they sell and this is why they won’t accept any wedding dresses unless they’re in pristine condition. Try to not fall in love with a gown that it’s harder to repair. Stick to those models that look impeccable and fit your figure well. This will save you from spending extra money on alteration. You can also look for online auctions, rentals and among friends and relatives.
Due to the fact that the women are week for beautiful dresses, the choice of their wedding gown is always personal. The majority of brides decide to go shopping with no style in mind. This allows them to fall in love with a gown at first sight and pick it for their wedding. Those who believe in love at first sight will surely find this way of shopping ideal. But there is one risk: you may fall for different models without having the slightest idea of how to classify them and make the final choice based on a wiser selection.
There are many ways to pick a wedding dress by. You can do it by style or design, by color or by length, by formality or by fabric. It’s essential to do your homework before going shopping in order to know which silhouettes are the most flattering for your body shape. It would be wiser to pick your wedding gown by shape or design. But as we said before, there are many aesthetical factors that come between a bride and her wish of choosing according to a set of rules or recommendation.
This is why she can fall in love with the back of a dress, with a unique pattern or embroidery, with the color of the dress or with the texture. Let’s talk more about fabric. Among the most popular materials available for bridal dresses we mention the following: cotton, crepe, charmeuse, lace, organza, silk, satin, linen, shantung and velvet. There are many other beautiful fabrics and textures to consider for your dress, but these are the most popular. We should focus today on organza.
This type of fabric is one of the most feminine and delicate because of its lightweight texture. Sheer, ethereal and flowy, organza is used in general in beach and casual wedding dresses. This charming fabric is very similar to silk, due to the fact that many forms of organza are made with silk filaments. Organza is fluid, wearable and translucent. It provides the bride with a sense of luxury, elegance and refinement. The Chinese organza is one of the loveliest types and it is completely made from silk.
There are also sturdier choices like French and Italian organza fabrics which contain both silk and nylon filaments and sometimes fibers of polyester. Traditionally, this material is made out of yarn. Semi and fully synthetic organza fabrics are the most affordable to consider for a wedding dress. Crisp, plain and sheer, this thin fabric is easy to work with and sculpt for bridal dresses, evening gowns, skirts and shirts, undergarments, window curtains and handkerchiefs. Its malleability makes it ideal for summer time wedding as it is even more transparent than cotton.
