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!

“Sparkle or no sparkle?” It’s one of the questions you’ll likely have to answer during your wedding dress shopping adventure. For some brides, the answer is easy (“Bring on the beading!” or “No sequins for me!”), while for others it’ll take a little more consideration. Fortunately, David’s Bridal offers both ends of the spectrum, exemplified by two of our favorite styles from their new collection. The romantic ballgown on the left features lace appliques, a corset bodice, and layers and layers of tulle, while the gown on the right is all-out glam and completely sequined top to bottom. Which style do you prefer for your wedding day? Let us know in the comments and view the rest of the new David’s Bridal wedding dresses here.

We saw all types of gown silhouettes during bridal market, but most prominent, perhaps, were super-fitted trumpet and mermaid wedding dresses. Whether they were covered in sparkle or completely unadorned, they gave off a real Hollywood glamour girl vibe and truly show off a bride’s curves.
