Chicago Bridal Market-New Trends To Fall In Love With!
We just got back from our buying trip in Chicago and cannot wait until our new styles arrive and we can show you what are the newest trend in weddings right now! Attending the high end fashion show in Chicago always makes us drool with envy as we see amazing fabrics and over the top trends. And this is a trend report of what you'll be seeing in weddings and at Amelishan bridal this summer and fall!
Volume- Wedding dresses are as full and voluminous as ever and the look is all about romance! Skirts and fabrics that pull in the waist and make us think of the Victorian days when woman were ultra feminine! The newest fabrics are light so the overall dress isn't too heavy to wear all day and the bead work is as detailed as ever.
Belts-We are seeing belts and accents on bridal and bridesmaids but expect them to be stronger and trendier then ever going into the late 2011 and early 2012 season! There are more choices than ever to take a bridal gown and add your own touch to truly make it one of a kind. Think colored belts (black), beaded, and belts with amazing silk flower accents. Belts also accent waists and make them look tinier, and who doesn't love that?!
Layers- Skirts coming into this season are going to look amazing walking down the aisle and on the dance floor as designers play with different fabrics and layering them. We saw layers of lace, organza, and tulle. Truly the look of elegance and girlishness! You'll also see designers play with feathers, bead work, and flowers within the layers to create even more volume.
Detail- We saw amazing detail, especially at Allure Bridals and Mori Lee. Lace dresses have floral accents (see below) that are both romantic and fashion forward. They take a traditional gown and take it to the next level of fashion! Bead work is a bit more vintage inspired and relates to what we are currently seeing in ready wear this season.
Maids are better than ever! We saw cocktail inspired silk t-length gowns and great colors that no bridesmaid can complain about. In fact I purchased a 'bridesmaid" dress in black to wear to all the weddings I have this summer. They are truly gorgeous! Rosettes are huge for maids too, as well as unique necklines and great draping.
We can't wait to start receiving our new purchases and seeing your reaction to the new trends in weddings! Call any time with questions regarding your wedding planning- we love what we do!!
