In bridal gowns, what goes around comes around. Some of the most popular contemporary styles are based on dresses of days gone by.
The universally flattering A-line dress is showing up more and more. This silhouette was popularized by television housewives in the 1950’s. Current updates include strapless bodices, lacy overlays and flowing trains.
A wide ribbon at the waist can add a bit of color.
The ball gown style is a hit with brides who have always wanted to be Cinderella, or perhaps Scarlet O’Hara. This dramatic dress is worn with a crinoline, allowing it to pouf out before falling stylishly to the floor. Update the look with either a sweetheart or portrait neckline.
Bridal fashions today combine the best of cutting edge contemporary and romantically nostalgic.
