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.
If you are unsure about sleeves and want to show a little shoulder, look at this off the shoulder dress with three quarter length sleeves.
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!

If you want a wedding dress that stands out from the crowd, you may want to consider a colored wedding dress. Wedding dress designers are creating gowns in all different colors from deep red to muted blush tones. The new hot color for 2013 is gold!! Gold is a huge color in fashion right now and is showing up on bridal runways everywhere.
Depending on how bold you want to be on your wedding day will reflect in the shade and amount of gold on your gown. If you want a subtle touch of gold you can choose to add a gold sash.
Or choose a dress in a soft shade of gold. This gives a similar look to an ivory gown with a little more shine and richness.
Choosing a classic silhouette, like the ball gown below, in a gold color mixes the traditional silhouette with the modern color palette.
If you are a modern bride, then why not reflect that with a gold dress that pulls out all the punches. These dresses use crystal embellishments to add even more sparkle to the gold wedding gowns.
You can even choose a gown with gold sequins to be completely unique. I truly love this idea for the right wedding…think New Years wedding!?!
