Looking for a wedding dress for your spring wedding? You’re in luck. At the most recent bridal market, there were many dress trends that were just made for spring garden weddings. Here are a few of our favorites:
Floral Motifs: Floral patterns can be showcased on a wedding gown in a variety of ways – embroidery (as shown on the Claire Pettibone gown above), printed fabric, and 3D appliques are the most common.
Lace: This is an obvious one – lace is the ideal fabric for a spring wedding. It’s so feminine and classic, and is available in so many silhouettes, from ballgowns to sheaths, like this Wtoo Brides gown.
Blush: We love that pink is becoming such a popular hue for wedding gowns (hello, Jessica Biel!) – and it’s never more appropriate than in the springtime. Worried that a pink wedding dress won’t allow you to stand out the way a white one would? Let this jaw-dropping Ines di Santo gown prove you wrong!
Tea Length: If you’re getting married outside, there’s no need to get your hem dirty – choose a tea-length dress for a vintage vibe, and to show off your shoes! We adore this David’s Bridal style, as it features another springtime favorite – dotted fabric!

Only the best-dressed stars were on the red carpet at the 2013 Oscars, and we know you want to steal their looks, but who? Jennifer Lawrence continued to follow the pink wedding gown trend in her Dior Haute couture dress, while many others like Amanda Seyfried and Sandra Bullock decided to adorn themselves in lace and beading with Alexander McQueen and Elie Saab gowns, respectively. Don’t forget the sequins on Naomi Watts and Nicole Kidman’s gowns or how Charlize Theron rocked the peplum, which is one of our top 10 wedding dress trends this year. Wow, what a fashionable night to remember.
