Wedding Gowns and Wedding Fashion Show at The Great Bridal ExpoWedding fashion trends come and go — there are classics and there is the cutting edge of fashion, and there’s everything in between.  Here are a few of the top trends we’re seeing for 2012 weddings!

Royal Influence
The wedding of Prince William and Kate in 2011 is expected to affect wedding fashion trends for many years to come. The most notable trend will arise from the simple and elegant dress that Kate Middleton wore for the wedding. Details for a royal wedding inspired by Kate dress include long lace sleeves, an applique bodice and a Victorian-style semi-bustle. Tuxedos with long tails for men and hats for wedding guests are expected to make a comeback.

Destination Wedding Dresses
Destination weddings generally require a wedding gown that is slightly more casual than a formal wedding dress. Inspired by such surrounding as tropical splendor or mountain meadows, destination bridal fashion reflects the spirit of the bride and her environment. Camille La Vie features destination wedding dresses that are livable, moveable and flowing. When shopping for destination wedding dresses look for simple Grecian-draped chiffons, hand-crocheted necklines, bare shoulders and shorter lengths.

In addition to destination wedding gowns and princess styles, here are the 10 bridal wedding fashion trends for bridal gowns:

1. Strapless Sweetheart Necklines
2. Tiered Layers of Voluminous Organza
3. Floating Lace
4. Sunburst Pleating
5. Cascading Tulle
6. Floral Sashes
7. Crystal Embellishments
8. Draped Bodices
9. Illusion Necklines
10. Cathedral Length Veils

Wedding Trends for Grooms
Dressing to the style of the event and coordinating with the bride’s gown are an important consideration for the groom when choosing attire for his wedding. According to the style experts at the Men’s Wearhouse, “if the bride is wearing a formal gown, then the groom should wear a tuxedo.”

Current trends for men’s formal wear include the classic black tuxedo with a vintage flair a-la-Madmen, white on white suits, notch or peak lapels and two-button jackets.
