Spring/Summer 2010 Bridal Gown Trends

July 29, 2009

If your wedding is spring or summer 2010, then it is time to start shopping for your gown.  Many styles from last season are overlapping into this seasons looks.  Some designers made small changes to the already popular designs and others incorporated new techniques.  Check out the top 10 looks seen on the runways:


1.       Mini wedding gowns

 Higher hemlines have been popular for a few seasons now, but the trend has finally made its way to Bridal.  This super chic look is perfect for the fashion forward bride, who isn’t into wearing a traditional style dress.  Many mini gowns have a 50’s throwback feel.  If you are wearing a traditional gown for your ceremony, you can opt for a mini gown for the reception.  These are also perfect for your rehearsal dinner or other events leading up to the wedding.

2.      Feathers

Feathers were seen all over the runways.  Some gowns were covered and others had strategically placed feathers for a soft airy look.

3.      Texture

Gowns that have texture rather than beading and lace will be popular for 2010.  Beading and lace are still in style, but having texture by layering different fabrics is the new technique.  This added dimension has a couture feel. 

4.      Splashes of color

Accent colors were seen this season on the runway.  Black really makes a statement.  Black flowers, black sashes, and black beading were big.  Black veils were a stunning touch as well. 

Carolina Herrera

5.      One-shoulder gowns

Asymmetry was seen last season and will continue to be popular.  The one shoulder gown was a staple in many of the designer’s collections.

6.      Rosettes

Beautiful rosettes make any gown romantic.  From having an over-sized dramatic flower too rosettes made into the fabric of the gown, these were all over the runways. 

7.      Ruffles and tiers

Ruffles and tiers were seen last season, but the trend will continue on.  This season’s ruffles and tiers are starting lower on the gown, which adds movement rather than adding bulk to the wrong places. 

Monique Lhuillier

8.      Beaded belts and  sashes

Beading has always been popular for bridal gowns, but now having beading that is concentrated in one spot is what’s hot. The beading is more antique looking and less bright and shiny.    

9.      Bows

We saw oversized bows to tiny bows down the train.  Bows were seen everywhere.  Choose a bow that is strategically placed where you want to draw attention.  Like a toned back.


10.  Peplums

This is when there is a layer of fabric that hits at the mid-thigh, which creates dimension and curves.  This is perfect for the bride who wants to create the illusion of curves to a boyish figure.

Remember, that if you find a dress with a great fit, but it is too simple for your taste, you can easily dress it up.  Do you want rosettes? Buy silk flowers separately and add them yourself or have your seamstress attach them.  Create your own beaded sash with silk ribbon and a beautiful beaded trim.  If you love feathers but can not find a dress with them on it, then put feathers in your hair or bouquet.   There are plenty of ways to achieve one of these runways looks without paying couture gown prices.  Good luck, and enjoy creating the perfect gown unique for you.
