2. Illusion Dresses

Since the introduction of illusion dresses to the bridal world, the illusion trend has become a staple in many wedding gowns. Be it a romantic illusion neckline or a sensual full illusion dress, this trend allows brides to bare as little or as much as they want while ensuring that their modesty is being kept.

3. Nude Underlay

Wedding dresses with a nude underlay are perfect options for brides who find illusion dresses a little risque but love that barely-there look. The nude underlay gives off the impression of a translucent gown without requiring any or much skin bared. It also makes the outer layer, usually an intricate lace fabric, pop, giving the gown a more 3D look.

4. Sexy Backs

Rather than baring your décolletage, why not flaunt your toned back instead? Gowns with a sexy back, be it a low back or one peppered with intricate lace details, offer an element of surprise and romance, and a hint of sexy and playfulness to your outfit.

5. Two-Piece

Two-piece wedding dresses are chic, fun, versatile and full of personality. Be it a midriff-baring crop top and skirt combination or one that covers the length of your torso to meet the waistband of the skirt, two-piece numbers give off a laidback, whimsical vibe that are perfect for casual and intimate weddings.

6. Long Sleeves

Sleeved wedding dresses are steadily gaining popularity over the years ever since Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, donned an elegant lace sleeved wedding gown for her wedding. Gowns with illusion sleeves are a great way to maintain modesty and show a hint of skin without sacrificing style.

7. Fit and Flare Dresses

Fit and flare dresses are a great middle ground between a figure-skimming mermaid or trumpet gown and a bigger A-line or ballgown silhouette. As its name suggests, this trending gown silhouette is fitted at the waist like a mermaid or trumpet gown but starts to flare out slightly at the hips.

Whimsical, romantic and very wedding-appropriate, gowns in soft shades like blush and lilac make great alternatives to the traditional white wedding gown. These delicate hues are perfect for brides who are searching for coloured gowns that carry just a hint of colour for that bridal look instead of an evening one.
