The latest wedding dress trends

The latest wedding dress trends Credit: – What wedding dress styles, colours and embellishments are popular at the moment?

"Short wedding dresses are becoming a massive trend. You don’t have to wear the traditional tea-length design, you could opt for a high front and low back like Gwen Stefani’s Vera Wang gown or something like Lilly Allen’s vintage mini Dior dress. If that’s not for you, then how about ruffles? It can create extra detailing or you could go big with a ruffle mermaid skirt.

"Off-the-shoulder gowns are super flattering and very popular among most designers. Square necklines have also made a return thanks to Bridgerton setting a new trend.

"To create a statement, why not try trousers or a jumpsuit? Those of you who would rather stay with a full-length dress, try adding some detachable puffy sleeves as boho styles are on the rise. If you have a short gown, you can add on a detachable skirt with a train.

"Fashionable colours include a nude base with ivory lace detailing or a traditional off white.

"Plain gowns can be accessorised with a cape or shawl that has some beaded detailing on it. Alternatively, you can’t go wrong with a sash around the waist or accessories such as headbands, which can be paired with statement earrings. Remember the most important thing is that you feel comfortable in what you’re wearing."
