Fashion Forward: Wedding Gowns
Every bride wants to look like a princess on her special day, so if you're planning to take the plunge in 2008, you'll want to check out the latest styles for brides-to-be! The Nightteam's Diana Diaz takes us down the aisle in tonight's Fashion Forward.
WSVN -- Every bride knows she wants to look picture perfect before walking down the aisle, so what's new when it comes to wedding gowns?
Tatiana Byron: "The new trends that we're seeing for 2008: it's all flowy, it's all sexy, it's romantic fabrics and styles and shapes."
The folks from the Wedding Salon Luxury Bridal Trade Show, showed off their best at the Biltmore hotel in Coral Gables.
Like this dreamy two-tone gown in French lace with a low back. A brown satin sash fastened by an elegant broach brings out another big trend for brides: a splash of color!
Tatiana Byron: "Like sashes, belt, things of that nature, we're seeing yellows, we're seeing pinks, we're seeing blues, in some cases, we're seeing black and red."
You'll look like an angel in this Alvina Valento gown in antique ivory satin, covered in Swarovski crystals or try an empire-cut with a net floral design and low front and back. Add sparkly hair pins for extra glamour!
This silk charmeuse gown by Nicole Miller brings out the romance because it's flowy and feminine.
Tatiana Byron: "Everything is lighter, it's softer, silk, chiffon, a lot of the very beautiful fabrics that are very gentle on the body."
And of course no bride would be complete without her bouquet. The good news: you don't have to match your flowers to your dress.
Thomas Noel: "The idea behind the traditional bouquet is kind of passe now. Color is being brought in like we've never seen before."
Rich reds, oranges and greens make this dramatic bouquet just right for a fall ceremony.
Bling is still a big trend and this bouquet really sparkles with added crystals.
Or try something totally unique.
Thomas Noel: "That's called a pomodor. It's a little bit of a different shape. Instead of holding the bouquet above your hands. It actually falls underneath your hands almost like a little basket."
From beading, to broaches, crystals and splashes of color, it's all about adding your own personal touches on your big day! But, in the end, it all comes down to the bride and groom!
Thomas Noel: "Ultimately, trends are ever-changing, but it's all about the couple."
What's the most popular flower for a bridal bouquet? If you guessed roses you're right because they come in all different colors and are available year-round.
