Spring 2010 Trend: Nature-Inspired Wedding Dresses
If you’re planning to get married early next year, take a cue from mother nature and the spring 2010 collections of European bridal designers. Flowers of all species, feathers, and leaves are the latest wedding dress trend, with interesting applications as embroidery, appliques, or prints. There are so many ways of using the nature-inspired trend on a wedding dress, I don’t even know where to begin! Consider implementing one of these details to your spring 2010 wedding dress.
This lovely retro silhouette is made more feminine by the embroidered flowers on the hem and bust. For a more subtle look, try a wedding dress with a large embroidered floral detail on the skirt or the bust.
Consider dropping the all-white wedding dress and using a silk fabric with floral prints. This lovely strapless dress by Aimee Montenapoleon features layers of printed taffeta and tulle. If you want white to be the dominant color while retaining the effect of the floral prints, ask your dressmaker to place a sheer chiffon overlay on top of the printed fabric.
By doing so, you achieve a dreamy, romantic effect with the slightest touch of color.
A hoop skirt looks mighty uncomfortable but I like how skirt is dotted with silk rosettes. You can easily do this on a full-figured ball-gown skirt.
You can also have silk flowers sewn onto one strap of a sleeveless or spaghetti-strapped dress.
