Every bride wants to look beautiful on her wedding day, and the dress she chooses is a big part of this. One beautiful trend that you can wear for your wedding day is a dress with beaded embellishments. This can be worn as part of any silhouette, making it a trend that any bride can use.
The overall effect of a dress with beaded accents is a detailed style that looks fabulous. A fully beaded bodice, like on this fit and flare dress from Simone Carvalli, is sure to grab the attention of the groom and all the guests. It requires next to no accessories for a stunning style, too.

Another part of this trend is the use of pearls. Pearl beading can give a gown a soft sheen with a hint of color and plenty of elegance. This was seen on many runways at New York Bridal Week, and is perfect for a vintage look. The natural color of the pearls gives a delicate and feminine embellishment to a style.
Beaded embellishments don’t need to be over the top. Small beaded details are also gorgeous. Many designers are combining this with lace for a great effect.

If you’re looking for a dress that is elegant, flattering, and easy to wear, a Grecian style might be right for you. It’s also a popular gown for designers, with the style featuring on many New York Bridal Week runways last month.

The Grecian style is characterized by an ethereal, flowing skirt paired with a ruched or pleated bodice. Most feature an empire waist, often with decoration to form a belt effect. Chiffon is a favorite fabric for Grecian gowns, but they are available in other light fabrics.
One of the beautiful things about Grecian styles is that they offer a lot of flexibility. Designers offer Grecian styles with sleeveless, one-shoulder, and strapped bodices. This means you can find a Grecian silhouette that meets all of your needs, whatever they are.
While the style is noted for its uncomplicated nature, it still offers the chance to sparkle with embellishments. Many Grecian styles offer delicate crystal details that are nothing short of stunning.
Whether you want a Grecian gown for the ability to accessorize easily or for the figure-flattering shape, you’ll need to find a bridal salon that offers plenty of selection. To find out what we offer, make an appointment at our Ontario bridal salon today!

Standing next to you on your big day, your bridesmaids will be a big part of your overall wedding style. Choosing the perfect dress for them is almost as important as finding the right gown for you. A summer wedding gives you the opportunity to take advantage of a variety of bridesmaid trends. Here are a few of our favorites.
High-Low Hems

This is shaping up to be a huge bridal trend for 2015, and is already a great trend for your maids. It is a perfect summer gown, allowing your maids to show off a bit of leg while still having a beautiful flowing style. This Bari Jay crinkle chiffon dress is an excellent choice for this style.
Draped Chiffon

For a soft summer style, look for a flowing chiffon style. Draped looks like this Enzoani gown offer the flexibility of a detachable cape sleeve, meaning your maids can have a slight change to the look for the evening.
Belted Grecian

If your maids have different body shapes, a belted Grecian style can be very flattering. It offers a detailed look that still shows the lightness required for a comfortable summer style. The beaded belt style of this Scala gown would be perfect for any summer wedding.

One of the biggest trends that we saw at New York Bridal Week last month was the dramatic back. Designers have been developing this style over the past few years, but it’s looking like 2014 and 2015 will be all about how you look from behind.
Illusion backs
Like the illusion neckline, the illusion back uses lace or another sheer fabric to give a nearly-nude look with fuller coverage. For these styles, a deep plunging back is paired with a pattern that seems cast directly on your back. This is also an excellent way to wear the lace trend that will also be popular in the coming seasons.
Another way designers are adding interest to the back of a gown is through a bit of sparkling bling. Crystals and diamante touches can beautifully reflect the light. The delicate line of this Sottero and Midgley gown is accented with a line of sparkling Swarovski crystals forming a racer back cut.

Plunging cuts
For the bride who is ready to show a bit of skin, the sexy and seductive style of the season is the deep plunging cut. These gowns feature a backless or nearly backless style that really make a statement.
