Wedding dress trends for 2012The old saying, “the trend is your friend,” can be applied to pretty much anything in life, including wedding dress fashion.  And understanding the hot wedding dress trends that emerge from year to year can help ensure that you wear a dress that looks hot and trendy instead of tired and dated.

The bottom line is that whether you’re a bride-to-be or the mother of the bride, knowing what’s hot and what’s not can really go a long way toward creating a trendy, stunning look to die for. As such, for today’s post I thought I’d share with you a fabulous video from the Today Show that focuses on this very subject!

The video is narrated by Randy Fenoli, host of Say Yes to the Dress and Randy to the Rescue.  If you’ve ever seen either one of these shows, you know that Randy really knows what he’s talking about!

In the video Randy reviews and models the 4 hottest dress styles that will rock the summer of 2012. And I’m sure you will agree that these dresses are quite stunning and will probably be trendy for at least a couple of years going forward. Don’t believe me? Watch the video and decide for yourself!

The 4 wedding dress trends discussed in the video are:

  1. The raw edge style: This low-cut sleeveless dress has elegant 3-dimensional elements, along with a layered mini-skirt.  It gets its name from the fact that its folded edges are not hemmed – they are ‘raw.’
  2. The heavily accessorized retro style (1950s / 1960s): This fabulously breezy silk style features jeweled straps, and is great for beach, vineyard, or other outdoor destination wedding locations.
  3. The pastel style: Colors are increasingly trendy right now in the fashion world, and this trend has now hit the wedding dress industry.  As the name implies, this style of dress is not pure white, but rather features light pastel colors like peach, light pink or baby blue.
  4. The lace & sash style: This look became popular thanks to Kate Middleton’s dress at last year’s Royal Wedding.  This style of dress features lace from the neck to the bosom and down the sleeves, and an extremely elegant sash in the back.

So, if you’re on the verge of getting married, please watch the video above and get inspired! Methinks you’ll be happy that you did.

And as they say in Hollywood, that’s a wrap, folks! I truly hope you enjoyed this tutorial on the hottest summer wedding dress trends for 2012.  And although these trends are labeled as being for summer, don’t be afraid to wear styles such as these in the spring and autumn seasons too. Because in the final analysis, I think all 4 styles are lovely and would serve any blushing bride extremely well no matter what the time of year.  What do you think?
