   By SheSpeaksTeam  May 21, 2014


Whether you’re attending a wedding or just love looking at pretty dresses, get ready to swoon - because we’re covering the Fall Bridal Trends of 2014. The strapless look of the Brides of the aughts has given way to the Year of Romance in a return to chivalry just in time to enter our Bridal Trends Giveaway & win a $100 Pottery Barn Gift Card!


Her Serene Highness, Grace of Monaco Mary Queen of Scots Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge
designed by Helen Rose designed by Monique Lhuillier designed by Sarah Burton

The first trend on our list, Long Lace Sleeves, may be inspired by 3 Royal Brides, namely Grace Kelly (whose fashions will soon be appearing on the big screen in the biopic Grace of Monaco with Nicole Kidman in the title role), Mary Queen of Scots (whose costuming has been burning up the tv screen in the CW's REIGN, and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.

Ersa Atelier Winnie Couture Monique Lhuillier

The next trend is The Blushing Bride as all manner of 'think pink' dresses continue in popularity - every shade from fuchsia to peony to powder is available as evidenced by celebrity brides Jessica Biel, Reese Witherspoon, and Kaley Cuoco.  

Vera Wang Monique Lhuillier Oscar de la Renta

The last trend is Sculptural Fabrics and shapes, with the return of duchesse satin that creates a tailored look in contrast to the Boho, unstructured feeling of recent years.  

Pronovias Rosa Clara Theia

I like the long lace sleeve trend. I'm not a fan of strapless dresses - I like just about any other neckline

I like the lace look on the Winnie Couture and Monique Lhuillier dresses. I like the classic regal looks for wedding dresses.

Monique Lhuillier's dress looks beautiful! My sister is getting married next June 2015 and I can totally picture her in something like that. :)

I like the sculptural fabrics; that Vera Wang dress is fabulous. Also, Pottery Barn is the best place for a bridal registry. Thanks for sharing all these gorgeous dress photos!!

I really love a dramatic back, like an open lace back or intricate detailing with some sort of lace and beading. The overall shape can go between mermaid or A-line. Here are some examples...
