David’s BridalThis spring, David’s Bridal is celebrating weddings with fresh, modern colors and cutting edge silhouettes through three unique bridal themes: Garden Delights; Destination: Romance; and Black & White.

With the number of destination weddings on the rise, let’s concentrate on the Desintation: Romance theme. Here are some tips straight from David’s Bridal about silhouettes, colors and fabrics in wedding attire for spring.

Silhouettes – The sunny and warm atmosphere of a Palm Springs poolside is the inspiration for this season’s destination wedding trend. A glamorous waterside wedding can even be achieved at a local venue, evoking the same tropical feeling. Representing a more playful style, gown skirts are short and flirty, reminiscent of the ‘50s and ‘60s. Long and sleek gowns with an informal twist — such as a strapless Goddess A-line style that features a stunning crystal brooch (Style T9389; $399) or a flattering halter gown designed in a uniquely rich burnout fabric (Style EK9343; $499) — showcase a touch of city chic. A coordinated bridal party can be achieved with relaxed, sexy dresses or short and sweet styles.

Colors – This trend boasts two distinctly different color schemes. Fresh, modern hues, including Watermelon, Azalea, Honeydew, and Pool, make for a bright, energetic look that pops. This look is best captured in a halter clip-dot chiffon short dress with charmeuse trim and ruffle skirt (Style F12892; $135). Neutral colors, such as Canary, Chocolate and Honey, provide a contemporary, monochromatic feel, channelling the hues that are key this season.

Fabrics – Shimmering satin and silky charmeuse styles are prevalent, allowing brides to combine a modern feel with an exotic look. Allover lace gowns complement brides of any figure, while textured fabrics such as crinkle chiffon provide a dramatic touch.
Accessories – With an emphasis on short or tea-length gowns for brides and bridal parties, stylish shoes play an important role. Choose colorcoordinated styles or pair metallic shoes with sleek, shiny jewelry, for a stunning look. Veils are long and narrow to highlight the lustrous fabrics, and hair adornments — such as headbands, combs and romantic flowers — lend themselves to less traditional settings.

Whether looking for a style that is classic, glam, sweet, or sophisticated, David’s Bridal offers today’s bride endless opportunities to create the wedding of her dreams with gowns ranging in size from 0–26W, with select styles in 28W and 30W, and prices from $299–$1,200.
