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!

Remember Tibby (Amber Tamblyn) from “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants?” Well, she tied the knot to actor David Cross Oct. 6 wearing a non-traditional mustard-colored dress. Tamblyn arrived in a canoe for her nuptials, barefoot, and adorned with yellow flowers in hair as well as in her bouquet. Of, course all her costars from “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” were in attendance, including newlyweds Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. What do you think of Tamblyn’s dress? Would you wear a non-white, ivory or cream dress? Tell us in the comments below or for more inspiration, check out our wedding dress photo gallery.
For all you celebrity wedding watchers out there, by now, we’re sure you’ve seen the photos from Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves’s laid-back Texas wedding, specifically the shots of Camila’s gorgeous handmade wedding gown. The design, created by a family friend based in Brazil, featured a bateau neckline and long sleeves all in beaded lace. The style really hits on two major trends that we saw at last season’s bridal market: illusion necklines and sleeves! And Camila certainly proves that you can wear sleeves any time of year, not just the cold weather months.
If, by chance, you don’t have the same connections as Camila, you can still find several more readily-available wedding gowns that have a similar Old World, feminine vibe. These styles are hot-off-the-runway from the most recent bridal market:
