Unique Wedding Gowns For This Summer

Wedding fever is in the air and this summer you will see some very unique wedding gowns. Ball gowns are bigger than ever, ruffles are more intricate, colors range from blushy pinks to pale greys, and form-fitting dresses look sexier than ever. Every year wedding trends seem to change and give us something better but I think 2012 marks the beginning of the BEST wedding trends to ever hit the runway.  Choosing the right gown will be even harder as all of these styles have something to offer. The three top summer wedding trends for 2012 feature different colored wedding gowns, larger ballgowns and leg-flaunting slits.

This summer unique wedding gowns have color

Adding colored sashes to white and ivory gowns has been popular for a few years now but wedding gowns in completely different colors are starting to make a big splash.   More and more brides are choosing different colored unique wedding gowns.  Style icon Sarah Jessica Parker chose black on her wedding day and many other celebs are following in her footsteps.  Reese Witherspoon and Portia Derossi were seen in blush colored gowns. Lisa Ling and Dita Von Teese were seen in brighter colored gowns in red and blue.  It has been common for second time brides to wear different colored wedding gowns but now many first time brides actually want a colored wedding dress because it adds character and personality.  So, don’t be afraid of breaking traditional norms and go for more color instead.

Unique wedding gowns are bigger and better this summer Unique wedding gowns are hitting the runway and the new trend we will see this summer is bigger ball gowns. They are back in style and are perfect for those romantic brides who always dreamed of wearing a Cinderella gown but still want something modern.  For those of you who think bigger ball gowns only mean more fabric and less comfort you are wrong.  These larger gowns are still lightweight regardless of their size because of the fabrics they are made out of such as organza and tulle. These larger ball gowns contain layers and layers of tulle and organza. The outcome? Fairy tale inspired wedding dresses that are lightweight and whimsical.

Unique wedding gowns have leg-flaunting slits this summer

As wedding gowns become more modern and stylish we are seeing traits from the red carpet evening gowns.  One such trend is the high cut, leg-flaunting side or front slit.  Better warn grandma because this trend is now seen in wedding dresses and is more daring than ever.  Angelina Jolie may have started this thigh-high leg-flaunting trend with her Versace dress she wore at the Oscars, but she is not the only celeb appreciating this high-slit. Kim Kardashian, Poppy Delevigne and Rachel McAdams have all rocked this sexy leg-flaunting slit and more celebs are catching on. Wedding designers such as Monique Lhuillier and Ines Di Santo have released their 2012 collection which features thigh-high slits. These slits are perfect and it still leaves much to the imagination. Even better it can be worn by any shape and size giving more women a chance to flaunt this daring look.  These unique wedding gowns are stylish and flattering so get ready to make a tough choice!
