Wedding Trends For 2012

New York Fashion Week has come and gone but the bridal fashion trends are not. With Oscar de la Renta's blues and Vera Wang's reds, there were a lot of unique styles. So what exactly are the wedding fashion trends for 2012-2013? Let's break it down for you...

Lace has ALWAYS played a factor in the wedding trend, and this year it is definitely remaining prominant. From the smaller details to covering entire gowns, this simple fashion statement makes bridal gowns as gorgeous as usual.

*something blue
Oscar de la Renta blew (no pun intended) everyone away with his newest bridal collection that had lots of blues. From bridal gowns to flower girls, his collection certainly put the "blue" in something blue.

*dark and light
Vera Wang shocked everyone last year when she debuted her black wedding gowns. But now it seems Vera was ahead of the game. Alfred Angelo, Romona Keveza and Carolina Herrera all added black details to their wedding  gown collections this year.

There are different ways that one can accessorize her wedding gown. Bows are in this season for doing just that. From big front and center bows to the smaller, less obscure bows, they are all the rage for this year's accessory. Designers Monique Lhuillier and Oscar de la Renta both decked out their gowns with bows for this year's season. If girly is what you want for your big day, then bows are your go to choice!

Bling is always in when it comes to wedding gowns. Whether it is understated or full on bedazzled, Monique Lhuillier, Rivini and Temperley’s new designer gowns are hard to not look away from, with lots of embellishment and sparkle! Rivini's collection, inspired by a painting of a ballerina, include  detailed bead work and fluid silhouettes.

Vera Wang has stepped up her game this season, going from daring black to bold red. The color, a symbol of good fortune and joy in Chinese culture, is often worn by brides for their big day. "It’s a celebration of love", explained Vera. But Vera is not the only designer to dip into the bold colors. Oscar de la Renta and Romona Keveza's bridal gowns consist of reds as well.  

Ball gowns are always in style and this season the layers are in full force with big skirts, plenty of tulle, and a lot of volume. The poofier-the better!

Bridesmaids dresses are going purple-noticebly in the lilac hue. With flirty, short gowns flowing in multiple shades of purple, bridesmaids are sure to stand out this season!
