Wedding Dress Trends – Inspired by the Royal nuptials

In keeping with the royal wedding mania which swept most of us up last week (myself unexpectedly included), I’ve been trawling the web for wedding-related goodness.

These are some of this year’s wedding gown trends:

1. Gowns with black accents: super chic!

2. Modern lace

3. Feather detailing

4. Colourful gowns – a deviation from white and ivory, I love this blushing ballerina gown

5. Soft sleeves lend that gentleness and modesty to a wedding dress

6. The Kate – there will be thousands of brides looking to be princesses in gowns inspired by Kate Middleton’s. An ivory lace bodice with long sleeves and a long satin skirt all made for a simple and classic gown.
