Wedding Dress Trends: Plunging Necklines

A popular wedding dress trend for 2013 and 2014 are dresses with straps and sleeves.  Along with this reemerging trend are plunging necklines! Designers are creating dresses with sleeves that are elegant and modest yet show a hint of skin with the neckline.

When looking for a dress with a plunging neckline make sure to consider how “plunging” you want your neckline to be.  If you are busty on top, a shorter V-neckline will look classier.

My favorite dresses with plunging necklines are inspired by the 1920’s and have a vintage flair.

Wedding Dresses Fall 2013: Long Sleeves

A trend that has been gaining popularity since the recent Royal Wedding is long sleeved wedding gowns.  This Fall it is no surprise that so many designers have made dresses with sleeves.  In my opinion if you are having a Fall or Winter wedding, you have to take a second look at a gown with sleeves.  Not only does it make sense for keeping you warm but they typically offer a little more modesty than other gowns.

For Fall 2013, many of these gowns have illusion necklines and lace detailing on the sleeves.  This shows the perfect hint of skin to feel your most beautiful without feeling like you are showing too much.

This year is all about the back of the dress! You will see long sleeved simplistic gowns with more detail on the back of the dress than the front!

Keep in mind that just because a dress has sleeves it is not always a modest dress. I love the combination of a long sleeved gown with a plunging neckline like the dresses below.  Gorgeous!
