Gorgeous Gown Trends This Season

a post by GetMarried.com

We love speaking with Kleinfeld’s fabulous Fashion Director, Randy Fenoli. He meets with almost 15,000 brides a year in Kleinfeld’s 35,000 square foot luxurious flagship store in Manhattan. He is dedicated to helping brides find their perfect dress. Randy fills us in on all the hot gown styles this season!

Q: Tell us about the 50's inspired trend in gowns.
R: A lot of designers this season have definitely been influenced by fashion from the 1950’s which started with the “New Look” introduced by Christian Dior. Strapless boned bodices, natural waists, and full ballgown skirts are back in bridal fashion! Designers are using lighter fabrics like silk taffeta, organza, and even tulle. They really look like something Grace Kelly would have worn. And what bride doesn’t want to look like Grace Kelly on her wedding day!

Q: Three-dimensional texture is big this season. What do we need to know about this trend?
R: Whether it’s three-dimensional embroidery, shredded fabrics, or layers upon layers of ruffles, brides today love this light and airy textural look that gives interest and movement to their gown.

Q: The destination wedding gown is also popular. What kind of gowns can we expect to see in this category?
R: With airfares so cheap, couples are choosing exotic locations to say I do! A destination wedding can be held anywhere… from a beach in the Caribbean to an intimate gathering in a vineyard or a formal setting overlooking the Grand Canyon. Today, destination gowns are not just your simple chiffon sheath. One of my brides was proposed to in Arizona so she decided to have her ceremony on the cliffs overlooking the majestic Grand Canyon. Even though it’s an outdoor setting and the bride is 41 years old, it’s still her first wedding and she’s wearing that big beaded ball gown she’s always dreamed of!

Q: Tell us more about the one-shoulder looks.
R: First spotted on supermodels like Kate Moss, the one-shoulder dress quickly spread to the red carpet at the Academy Awards, and then to the runways of the bridal fashion shows. Who can forget the First Lady Michelle O’Bama dancing with the President in her one-shouldered gown at the inauguration ball?! It is a very hot trend now.

Q: And last – the BLING trend!
R: Every bride wants to shine on her wedding day, and designers are answering the call with gowns encrusted with jewels, rhinestones, and tons of sparkling Swarovski crystals! Some brides are wearing headpieces with bling as well.
