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!

Ines Di Santo is perhaps best known for her beaded, glamorous wedding gowns (the grand ballgown pictured at left is a prime example of her signature style). This season, she highlighted several sparkly creations, but we were also delighted to see some more ethereal, romantic styles in the mix, like the gown at right. How gorgeous would that dress be at a spring garden wedding – the long cape is such a unique (yet lovely!) coverage option. Which of these two gowns do you prefer? Let us know in the comments and be sure to check out all of the new Ines Di Santo wedding dresses here.

And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for: It’s time for our wedding dress trend finals!

Vote for your Favorite Wedding Dress Trend: Lace

Posted by Kim on May 08, 2012

Yesterday, we asked you to pick your favorite sleeve style. Seems like most of you prefer just a hint of coverage, in the form of cap sleeves.

This morning, we’re talking lace – the most feminine and romantic of fabrications. At bridal market this season, we saw designers use lace in entirely new and unique ways. So now we’re wondering which of these new lace styles are you most psyched about?
