Picks on Paper - Fall 2012 Wedding Dress Trends Wednesday, October 26, 2011 ~ 9:34 a.m.

Since Bridal Market, you may or may not have noticed that there have been oodles and oodles of new wedding dresses popping up everywhere lately, which has made it nearly impossible for me not to do a blog post on them at some point! After sifting through dozens and dozens of gorgeous wedding gowns from the Spring and Fall 2012 collections, I noticed five major themes that were most prominent - Sheer and lace sleeves, feather details, dramatic (and sometimes even gothic) colored gowns in shades of blush and black, sleek and modern sheath dresses dripping in beading and full, two tiered skirts, all make appearances in the new 2012 collections. While I do enjoy some of these trends a little more than others (I'm still not sure that I would ever wear a black wedding dress, myself), it really is amazing to see the creativity that exists within this industry! Whether you're looking for an edgy, modern, glamorous, traditional, romantic, quirky, whimsical or classic look for your day, one thing is for sure...these dresses are nothing like your mama's old poofy white gown!

With so many amazing gowns, I was bound to come across a few that I just couldn't pass up, even if they didn't fit into one of my chosen five themes! So before I get into my official "Picks," I want to share some of my favorite wedding dresses from the new 2012 Spring and Fall collections.
