Even though Christmas is officially past, in the bridal world every day right now is like Christmas as our fave wedding dress designers release their gowns for the upcoming season! Yes, we know we don’t actually get to have them all but just seeing extraordinary new wedding gowns kinda makes our day (and yes, we might need a hobby).
Anyway, today we were perusing Bonny Bridal’s Spring 2013 collection, and noticed some standout gowns that are spot-on for some of 2013′s hottest wedding dress trends, and we thought we’d share. Here’s the rundown of the dresses pictured here, from left:
- The Retro Inspired Lace Illusion Wedding Dress. Actually, lace and illusion are technically two separate trends, but this Bonny 305 combines them to perfection in a modern fit and flare shape. The back is equally fabulous, with an open deep-v, which is another up-and-coming trend we’re seeing brides coveting for 2013 and beyond.
- Modern Color. What we love about this Bonny 300 – available in White/Platinum, Ivory/Platinum, Champagne/Platinum, Antique/Platinum (phew!) – is that it takes the option of subtle color and puts it in a ball gown that’s totally traditional in so many ways. It’s an amazing choice for brides who want to be modern but not super-trendy. Love.
- Sexy Drama. Okay, so this may not be officially a trend, but there’s lots of talk in the bridal industry about sexy dresses and dramatic architectural detail, and this Bonny 311 has both. This is for the bride who is confident and wants to stand out, balancing dramatic details with clean classic lines and a sexy curve-conscious fit.
- The V-Neck With Straps. While the phrase “v-neck” seems decidedly un-sexy and kind of un-bridal, the truth is we’re seeing tons of gorgeous v-neck dresses as brides seek an alternative to the traditional strapless sweetheart. We love this Bonny 308 because it maintains a delicate feel while creating a pretty v-neck effect with skinny spaghetti straps. It’s a thoroughly modern princess look, and we’re obsessed.
