1. LACE, LACE, LACE
Classic and timeless, this material is traditional and beautiful. Perfect for a casual or formal wedding at any location during any season. Easily found on all styles of dresses, a bride can choose to go full-force with head to toe lace or just add accents in the skirt or bust. Or simply through accessories like veils, headpieces and shoes.
Perfect for the modern bride at heart! Add a gorgeous Grecian flare or architectural element to your dress. The au-current one-should style is a great way to include personal style without sacrificing traditional elements and also a great alternative for brides who do not want to go completely bare-shouldered.

3. BURSTS OF COLOUR
For the non-traditional bride or the girl who just wants to have fun! Red was all over the runways, but we also love black, light pink and touches of baby blue. Mint was also one of the hottest colours for spring 2013. It’s retro, cool and one of our favourite new colour trends as seen below. There is no reason why you have to play by the all-white rules – 2013 is all about colour!
4. BEAUTIFUL BACK DETAILS
Every bride wants to have at least one sexy element in their wedding dress. If your back is one of your best features, play it up! Try a picture frame back detail or low cut back design to add just a touch of sex appeal. You’ll leave them gasping even as you exit the room.

5. HIGH-NECK. HIGH STYLE
For years, strapless has been the best thing since sliced bread for most brides! Fear-not ladies who loathe a strapless gown, the high neck is a main feature in the designs of the future. And it’s simply stunning! Feast your eyes on amazing lace details, strategic cut outs and sheer panels on next years gorgeous designs. This trend is one of our favourites!
