The Mermaid style, also known as the fit and flare or trumpet, is becoming more and more popular in the wedding dress circle. However, this silhouette can be difficult for some brides to pull off. It has a body-hugging shape silhouette with skirt that flares out either at the knee or just below it. Do not attempt this look if you have a wider hip or waist, the wedding gown will not fit properly.

The Empire style wedding dress flatters most all body types. It is especially popular for brides who want to camouflage the tummy area and bring attention to the chest and shoulders. The high, raised waist creates a long line, ideal for the petite or taller bride. The skirt may be slightly flowing, straight, or as wide as an A-line.

The Sheath style is for the bride who isn’t afraid to show off her body! This body-hugging silhouette is sculpted very close the body, and can be quite exquisite given the right wedding gown fit. Avoid this style if you are uncomfortable with the size of your hips.

The Ball Gown wedding dress is the most dramatic of all bridal silhouettes. It features a small waist (dropped or natural) and a very full skirt with petticoat. Most flattering to women of at least average height with hourglass or full figures—as it will hide a larger bottom and emphasize your waist and shoulders. This Ball wedding dress skirt is not recommended for the petite bride, as it would be overwhelming.

The A-line wedding dress or wedding gown literally comes from the letter “A” and its shape—a narrow bodice and outer edges of a wide sleek skirt. Available in a variety of fabrics, the A-line/Princess cut may or may not have a seam at the waist, which may be higher or lower than the natural waistline. Most body types, including petites and full figures will find this silhouette flattering.

This year color trends will be from every end of the color spectrum. Because vintage is in, we will start to see more vintage, earthy and sun-washed colors; on the other hand, brides are still favoring the bright colors paired with black. Brides are taking chances by using anti-traditional wedding colors and combining black and fuchsia, coral, deep red, violet purple, emerald green, Clementine orange, and canaries yellow. Another new trend we will start to see is shades of gray. Brides are using gray as the new brown and matching it up with pastel colors such as pink and blue or hues or green and navy for their wedding gowns and wedding dresses.

This year we will see a lot of new trends that were popular in the 1920s, 30s and 40s. Due to hard economic times, these new trends will not only help brides save money, but also bring out the couple’s personality and love towards each other. Weddings are beginning to take a step back into time when a wedding was to declare two people’s love for one another, not to have a huge extravagant party. Simple and creative is in, so it will be exciting to see what 2011 weddings will bring o the table, beautiful wedding dresses and wedding gowns.
