The magic of a winter wedding infuses a crisp note of love into the air on your wedding day and walking down the aisle in the perfect dress adds to the glow of a dream come true. Selecting your fairy tale gown may seem daunting with the thousands of choices available; learning about wedding dress trends will assist in your bridal journey. Read on for a look at notable trends for Winter 2012 wedding dresses.


The romance of lace abounds across wedding gowns in 2012, appropriate for daytime or evening ceremonies. The epitome of femininity, look for overlays of delicate lace atop white satin gowns featuring details such as see-through backs and partially-covered-shoulders. Lace, for eras a classic wedding dress accoutrement, lends a sense of dreamy star-crossed love to your wedding day choose from Chantilly, Spanish, Venetian, duchesse, beaded lace, guipure or corded laces.


Float down the aisle in your dress with accents made of the softest feathers. Create a show stopping look for your wedding gown by incorporating the stunning yet subtle texture of feathers. Use feathers around the neckline and decolletage to create a flattering accent effect or tiered cascade in waterfall layers upon the skirt portion of the dress. Popular types of feather to consider for your wedding dress include ostrich or marabou.

Vintage Glamour

Harken back to the days of Old-Hollywood by adding a touch of classic glamour to your wedding day with a vintage-inspired gown. Vintage-style wedding gowns often feature a floor-length dress style featuring an A-line or form-fitting mermaid or sheath silhouette, deep V-necks, corsets, ruched bodices and embellished with crystals or pearls. Enchanting and elegant ballroom gowns and princess-style skirts are making a huge hit in the realm of vintage glamour weddings.

Long Sleeves

Since Kate Middleton wed Prince William, a royal romance has developed with the popularity of long lacy sleeves for wedding dresses, although sleeveless still reigns as number one. Kate, now the Duchess of Cambridge wore a long-sleeved wedding gown to her wedding, and since then an increase in the trend of long-sleeved wedding dresses has occurred. Long lace sleeves make a perfect choice for winter weddings not just for practicality but for a show of grace and sophistication.


Will our love affair with bows ever cease? Bows add the perfect touch of a girlishness quality to almost any wedding dress and can be worn in a variety of ways. Look for simple small tuxedo bows resting comfortably at the waistline of elegant wedding gowns. In contrast, make a dramatic statement with a single large bow tied at the nape of the neck draping along the back or self-confidently showcased upon a single shoulder or at an angular disposition upon the waist. Bow materials may include satin, organza, silk or grosgrain ribbon.
