Well, there’s no better way of making sure you pick the perfect wedding dress than to check out some of the popular wedding dress styles for 2014. Many of the styles are absolutely gorgeous and you can pick one that best suits your preference, personality, and body shape. Based on the latest bridal from New York to Paris here are some of the top wedding dress styles for the year:
Ever since Kate Middleton donned a beautiful lace sleeved wedding gown, this wedding style has enraptured everyone and is here to stay in 2014, more popular than ever before. The only difference this time round is that lace sleeves are fashionable in various lengths, from full length and 3/4 sleeves to half sleeves and caps, which means there’s something for every bride. A number of stunning lace sleeve styles are available in the Pronovias and Demetrios range, especially embracing the new half or cap lace sleeve trend. Lace sleeves definitely give the wedding gown a graceful and noble finish, fit for royalty.
This fabulous bridal trend is an alternative to sleeves, but may also feature on necklines and hems. The translucent material, layers and sheer details add a lovely, illusionist touch to the wedding gown that will be sure to mesmerise. This dress by Provonias is an excellent example of this enchanting style, where the sheer, ruched arm overlays compliment the gown perfectly, coming together at the back to form an elegant train.
Inspired by the glamorous Great Gatsby and decadent Art Deco styles, beautiful vintage-style beadwork on wedding dresses continue to create an alluring and opulent wedding look for 2014. This trend includes ornate embroidery patterns, as well as floral and lattice motifs with delicate beading. Provonias wedding dresses incorporate a range of beaded designs, from simple neckline or upper bodice motifs to more dispersed beadwork designs that feature in the skirt. The Demetrios range also offers impressive dress styles with intricate beaded designs combined with amazing floral motifs and ruffled designs.
You don’t have to wear a full length dress on your wedding day if you don’t want to. Shorter length wedding dresses with hemlines are a very popular style this year, and are the perfect choice for a fun and chic wedding ceremony in the city. Flirty knee or thigh high dresses with frothy hemlines and skirt designs are very much on trend, such as the strapless short length wedding frocks by Kiss the Frog and Demetrios. The short length wedding dress style will be sure to wow.
That’s right, pink is the new white for wedding gowns in 2014, and brides will absolutely love the opportunity to don this pretty colour on their special day. It’s very feminine and totally cool. The pink hue will look lovely on any bride and matches any type of skin tone. An example of this beautiful wedding style is the elegant pink wedding gown by Kiss the Frog. Other than a full pink wedding stress, you may opt for a stylish gown with a touch of pink on the ruffles, such as the one from Eddy K.
Bigger is better this year with stylishly large frothy wedding gowns making a grand statement in 2014. Everyone will have to make way for the bride. Voluminous gowns and wide skirts with ruffled tiers feature in the bridal collections by Demetrios, Provonias, Eddy K and Ellis. The bride will certainly be the centre of attention on her wedding day wearing this dramatic, spectacular style.

With sleek styles, you may choose an elaborate design, or opt for a simple, minimalist design, which is also very fashionable for 2014.
