Vintage Lace Wedding DressYet another Pnina Tornai creation that doesn’t disappoint! This beautiful Chantilly lace gown features Pnina’s signature illusion bodice and a tiered skirt. Price: $11,500

Feather Detail Wedding Gown KleinfeldAnother trend for 2012 is feathers. This Sophia Moncelli for Kleinfeld gown features ostrich feathers on a trumpeted skirt. Price: $5,300

Gatsby Inspired Wedding GownHere’s another vintage bridal gown with a Valentino-like feel. This silk charmeuse tank dress with a low back is by Pnina Tornai and features rhinestone accents on the waist. Price: $10,000

Satin trumpet wedding dress This champagne colored Judd Waddell gown features a trumpet skirt with a beautiful lace bodice and rhinestone belt. Price: $3,300

Adding Color to your Wedding DressA great way to incorporate your wedding colors into your attire is to add a colorful sash. This Edgaro Bonilla wedding dress features a crumb-catcher bodice and is accented with a dark teal ribbon. (I especially love the shape of this dress without the ribbon!) Price: $4,200

Raw Edge Skirt Wedding GownIn 2012, look for volumized and structured skirts, like this Rivini dress’ raw edge skirt detail dress.

Romantic Flowered Wedding DressI absolutely love this wedding dress by Dennis Basso, featuring hand-embroidered rosettes. Price: $4,800

Modern Edgy Sheath Wedding DressThis modern strapless sheath dress by Carol Hannah features raw edge seams. Price: $2,800

Organza Ballgown Wedding Dress When people think “wedding dress”, they typically envision a white ballgown. This fun, flirty organza ballgown by Alita Graham is the quintessential wedding dress. Price: $2,500

Bridal Suit Lesbian Wedding Outfit I must say that I was so happy to see this come down the runway! This beautiful women’s tuxedo by Douglas Hannant features a plunging neckline and is fabulous for more mature brides, Lesbian brides, or brides who just aren’t fond of dresses!

Bling Wedding GownIf you’re a girl who loves her bling, then you’ll love this dress! This Kleinfeld mermaid-style gown features an embroidered dropped waist and a starburst rhinestone pattern. Price: $4,200

Pink Blush Mermaid Wedding DressIt’s a little hard to tell from the photo, but this gorgeous Dennis Basso mermaid gown is a blush pink color, which is a lovely alternative to white or ivory and still keeps that romantic feel. Price: $2,800

Kleinfeld Pnina Corset GownThis gown is certainly for the more daring bride and probably wouldn’t be church-approved. ;) This Pnina Tornai gown features an ivory beaded illusion bodice. Price: $11,500

Kleinfeld Pnina Tornai Wedding DressYet another Pnina Tornai gown. This was the show-stopper! The dress is called “Mother of Perla” and is a lace ballgown with a tiered skirt. Price: $32,500


So, let’s recap the dress trends for 2012:

  • Lace is making a HUGE comeback (thanks to Kate Middleton, I’m sure!)
  • Bling is here to stay!
  • Skirts with volume, texture and structure rule the runway.
  • Blush Pink is the new white.
  • Stapless has some stiff competition – look for more dresses with straps and sleeves.
