Bridal Spring 2014 Runway Styles
From Oscar de la Renta to Romona Keveza, designers are bringing silver touches into their dresses in a variety of ways. Many styles often use elements such as embroidery, beading, and sequins.
The style adds a touch of glamor to gowns. It’s a look that will be perfect for many types of brides, but is particularly perfect for the Gatsby-inspired vintage weddings. The silver accents add an opulence that goes hand-in-hand with the 1920s theme.
