We are fools for blush, pink and nude tones. And we can’t even begin to tell you how happy we are to see this trend is here to stay. Pink and nude are such feminine and romantic colors and together with all the beautiful, ethereal bridal fabrics and detailing, they can create some of the most ravishing dresses in bridal wear.

3. Wedding Dresses that Show off the Legs 

This is not your average bridal look. For brides looking for the ultimate modern wedding dress, this trend might just be it. A bold statement for sure,  wedding dresses that show off your legs are sexy and can be quite practical. Plus you have a wide range of wedding looks to choose from: from mini to tea-length or asymmetric and slits for those looking to combine the traditional look with modern elements. And if you’re looking for a truly unique wedding style, why not try a short jumpsuit?

4. Cascading Ruffles for a Sophisticated Bridal Look

There’s nothing better than ruffles to add a touch of sophistication, drama, and femininity and it’s really easy to see why they’ve been a constant trend in bridal wear lately. Cascading ruffles on a wedding dress will always look ethereal! In fact, ruffles can make such a fashion-forward statement that they are an accessory themselves. Go with minimalist, discrete jewelry, and accessories when wearing such a dress and make the most of one of fashion’s most romantic trends. You will feel like a modern-day princess.

If you’re looking for a regal, fashion-forward bridal gown, don’t pass on the high neck. It may come off as a classic bit, but it’s elegance at its finest and you have a wide selection of all kinds of silhouettes and materials to choose from. Make sure you add statement earrings and a nice up-do to your look for an ultra feminine and powerful look.
