Bridal Trends for Spring/Summer 2012




Combination of the two

Feather Hair Combs

Crystals and Pearls are classic bridal jewelry and keep consistently returning every season, but for Spring/Summer 2012, feathers have joined these classics as a hot new trend. 


For spring/summer 2012, the gowns were whimsical, girly, classy, and incredibly detailed. Perfect for any little girl's dream spring wedding.


Rosa Clara is a wedding gown designer based out of Barcelona, Spain and has provided a little explanation about their vision for their Spring/Summer 2012 bridal collection titled,
"Rosa Clara"

Rosa Clara has described their silhouette trends as both "Volume" & "Minimal".

Here are some of the gowns from the "Rosa Clara" S/S 2012 collection.


 Ecru silky tulle gown with appliqued rebrode lace

Ivory lace & silk organza
Ivory silk organza

Natural cotton satin and rebrode lace body, organza skirt


Natural tulle & rebrode lace

 Natural tulle & rebrode lace

 Natural tulle & rebrode lace dress

Ecru lace gown with beadwork and tulle detail

Women want to flaunt their figure & look their best on their big day. Fitted waistlines with incredibly flared skirts seems to be the silhouette of the season. Whether the skirt flares at the hips or the calves, this shape definitely is in.

I found both of these general silhouettes in many other designers' collections. Such as...

Vera Wang S/S 2012

Monique Lhuillier S/S 2012

Alvina Venta S/S 2012


White, ivory, cream, eggshell, ecru, the list of wedding whites goes on and on. In western culture, the white wedding gown is a classic. 
Like many seasons of the past, white and all of its variations are still being heavily used in the collections this season, yet designers are displaying other colors in their collections that we don't often associate with wedding gowns. It seems as though colored gowns are becoming a bigger trend this season.

Monique Lhuillier S/S 2012


Monique Lhuillier S/S 2012

  Celadon        Vera Wang S/S 2012        Charcoal

Degrade floral laser-cut organza                          Swirling organza & French tulle

Tulle and lace are light, airy, & classic. Silk, silky tulle, silk organza, and organza seemed to be favored by many of the bridal designers for S/S 2012.

Lace overlay and applique, as well as intricate beadwork was an incredible detail that this season's designers added heavily to their creations.

Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier, Melissa Sweet, Lazaro, Carolina Herrera, the list of well known bridal designers goes on and on, but Vera Wang is still the queen of bridal and, along with Monique Lhuillier seemed to leave the biggest impression this season.
