A bride may want to order a cover up for her wedding dress because she wants her arms covered for a religious wedding ceremony, she’s getting married in winter or a cold climate, or simply that the cover up in question is so fabulous she can’t get married without it!

Brides still shopping for their wedding-day look may find it hard to resist the jackets, boleros, shrugs and other cover ups making their way down the Spring 2013 Bridal Market runways. Styles range from fur and faux fur, in white as well as other colors, sheer jackets, “pop overs” that literally pop right over you head in lace or tulle, and organza boleros with three-dimensional detailing.

Here you can see three different cover up styles that editors saw on the runways:

Alfred Angelo designed a Venise lace jacket with white bridal buttons up the back. One can easily switch from the solemn ceremony setting to the party atmosphere of a wedding reception in a matter of seconds.

JLM Couture showed a fur bolero with crystal embellished tulle inserts, the perfect accessory for a winter wedding even if it’s not snowing outside.

Exclusive to David’s Bridal stores is this embroidered tulle pop-over with three covered buttons in the back. The metallic thread adds a bit of shimmer to a bride’s wedding-day look.

The Ball Gown is Back

Posted by Bridal Market on Oct 14, 2012

After a few seasons of seeing sexy silhouettes on the runway, designers have brought back the classic ball gown. Every designer featured a number of show stoppers with a voluminous skirt made from layers of soft tulle or stiff taffeta, which gives a ball gown a classic dome-like shape. Bodices were embellished with embroidery, beading, crystals, or left unadorned with fabric draped and pleated in elegant ways. Strapless necklines took a backseat to asymmetrical and illusion necklines made from tulle or lace, capped and long sheer sleeves, revealing that Kate Middleton’s Sarah Burton wedding gown still inspires designers and brides. Above are three of our favorite ball gowns from the Spring 2013 Bridal Market runway shows:

Dennis Basso, available exclusively at Kleinfeld in New York, layered tissue cut organza to create a light as air gown perfect for any black-tie setting. Brides looking for something a little more avant garde should slip into Marchesa’s Femke design. The three-dimensional floral design is made from silk gazar petals draped into blooming flowers over a strapless ball gown. For a mix of both classic and modern Vera Wang embellished this ball gown’s bodice with ribbon embroidery and paired it with a silk organza flange skirt.
