Summer 2013 wedding gown trends


Spotted on the runway

It’s all about the bling

This season saw everything from beautifully encrusted sleeves and ornate bodices to beading all over in alluring splendour. Patterns include slinky sheaths and scalloped edges inspired by twenties fashion. Get your sparkle on!


Romantic chantilly lace was the fabric of choice this season. Vera Wang, Christos and Kenneth showcased billowing clouds of tulle fastened by vines of lace, giving the gowns an almost ethereal look. For the romantic at heart, look no further.

Flattering peplum

Figure flattering on a variety of body types and embellished at the waist with ruffles, beading, and tiers. Peplums are becoming increasingly popular as they create the illusion of a slimmer waistline. Styles that show off your waist.

A floral wonder

Huge floral appliqués and gathered silhouettes resembling strewn petals brought the captivating garden theme to life.


Vintage inspired and utterly alluring. Think butterflies, metallic embroidery and scattered leaves with refined silhouettes giving way to rows of ruffles.

Your dream wedding dress awaits you!
