2014 Bridal Trends Home

As the husband-wife team behind L’Fay Bridal, each year we attend New York International Bridal Week and each year is nothing short of extraordinary.

There were juxtapositions, chic silhouettes, breathtaking fabrics, and touches of drama abound. While "oohing" and "ahhing" over the spring 2014 bridal-market runway shows, we took note of nine emerging trends for the coming year.

Peplum
- If you thought the Peplum look was just a fad think again. The slimming silhouette is flattering for all body types. Peplum dresses have taken on more flowing and whimsical structures including exaggerated layers, and structured ruffles falling from the waist to the hips, and the use of multiple fabrics including tulle.



Lace – Lace will never grow old. The timeless elegance of lace will remain a constant but in 2014 expect to see the lace more in sleeves and necklines for a sweet twist.


Short/T-length hemlines - If you want to ditch the traditional long gown and show more leg, you will have no trouble finding a short, above the knee or ankle length hemline dress. Not convinced short is best for the “I Do’s”? Consider a short gown for the reception or send-off dress.


Color - Think pink. Think Ombre. And well, even think black. Color is far from off limits in 2014. If you are a bold bride, don’t be afraid to explore the new bridal rainbow.


Gold/embellishments – We have to conclude The Great Gatsby influences this trend. Expect gowns embroidered in gold, with beaded cap sleeves and pearl and crystal embellishment. The more “bling” the better.


Interesting necklines - Strapless is a thing of the past. These days it seems that lace illusion necklines, halters, and even some turtlenecks are making a play for the top spot. A bit more modest but the sheer fabrics and laces keep that little bit of sexy some brides desire.


Minimalist – Quite opposite the “Great Gatsby” look, sleek modern looks with very little beading or embellishment, are abundant. Without embellishments the gown becomes all about rich fabrics and clean lines proving "less is more" works.


Open backs – Extremely low or crisscross backs are pushing bridal boundaries. Elegant and sexy these gowns have a lot to offer despite being made of less.


2014 is full of fancy and fun. No matter the bride there is a PERFECT dress for you. Be sure you do your research before shopping, find a bridal store you trust, and schedule an appointment to get quality one-on-one attention.
