We recently came back from the bridal market, where wedding dress stores go to buy our dresses for the next season. We love the new looks for Spring 2013 and wanted to report that bling is still in for next year!
One thing we saw a lot of was more belts and sashes. These are a great way to dress up a more simple gown or to customize it for your perfect look. You can get belts and sashes in a variety of widths, fabrics and finishes. Keep in mind that big rhinestones=$$, so expect to get these starting at $200. The sky's the limit from there!
Here are some that we love:
Another trend we've seen is designers showing their gowns with statement necklaces. These can be multi-pearl strands, chunky metal or bling. Here's an example we adore, shown by Lazaro:
For something more subtle that still makes a big impact, check out this bauble-covered cake the latest Martha Stewart Weddings:
So brides, even though you're seeing lots of lace and vintage trends, don't dispair–we've ordered lots of beautiful sparkly gowns for Spring 2013!
