Key Wedding Dress Trends to Look Out For in 2012

Choosing your wedding dress is something no bride should take lightly. With all eyes on you, and photos that last a life time, you need to look your best. Modern brides that are looking to mix tradition with fashion should take note of four key wedding dress trends this year:

1) Lace Capes and Cap Sleeves
2011 was all about the long lace sleeves in homage to Catherine Middleton at the Royal Wedding. In 2012 the sleeve has been replaced by a classy and flattering lace cape. This modest accessory is great for brides who would like a strapless dress, but are self conscious about their arms.

The trend for sleeves continues with small, cap sleeves. Reem Aarca showcased stunning cap sleeved wedding dresses at the spring 2012 Wedding Fashion Week. A dress with sleeves of this kind or a cape is hugely flattering.

The eyes are drawn upwards towards your face and elongate your body. This creates a flattering illusion of being taller and slimmer as it balances out the top and bottom halves of your body. Depending on the style, sleeves and capes will also mask bra straps if you need extra support.

2) Pastel Colours
While the tradition of white, ivory and cream dresses will never go out of fashion, it doesn't hurt to add an injection of colour. Seen on designers such as Vera Wang, soft pastel shades of candyfloss pink, lilac and even mint green are all over wedding dresses.

These dresses make a subtle statement and are perfect for young women looking to stand out on their big day. Many designers have also showcased dip-dyed dresses using a little less colour. This is a bold statement so is best suited to younger brides.

3) Embellished Bodices
In the style of dresses be Monique Lhuillier and Anne Bowen, embellished bodices are a huge wedding dress trend for 2012. Paired with a soft, plain skirt; these dresses really have the 'wow' factor. Bustier style wedding dresses are also popular. This sexy, lingerie style was featured heavily by Monique Lhuillier at Wedding Fashion Week.

Embellished bodices and bustier style wedding dresses are especially flattering for pear-shaped brides. The style will enhance your chest, clinch you in at the waist and skim your hips. This will create the illusion of killer curves.

4) Ruffles
If you have always dreamed of being a princess, there really is no better time than your wedding day. Oscar de le Renta showcased striking romantic ruffle skirts this spring, perfect for fairytale weddings.

Believe it or not, ruffle detailing is actually extremely flattering on every figure. You can hide or accentuate your curves with the dramatic skirt to create the perfect shape for your body.
