Wedding Gowns- The Best of the 2014 Fall Collections
categories: bridal fashions, Trends

Vera Wang’s ALL pink bridal collection (yes, she only presented wedding gowns in 4 shades of pink) has forever changed the wedding world. She has single- handedly given brides permission, free reign even, to wear color. Not surprising from the designer who debuted black wedding gowns a few collections ago. Notice that Vera includes design elements that were popular on all the runways this year: one-shoulder design, architectural details, bows, mermaid silhouettes, 3 dimensional flowers, draped skirts, stripes, etc. but the color is what will stay with you long after you read this post…

The genius in this all pink collection is that Vera Wang has made the case for ant bride who is nervous about the color vs. white issue. Gowns in full-color actually show the details better than white gowns do!

OK, it’s not like every other designer fell short on the runways, because they really didn’t, but we can’t get Vera Wang’s collection out of our heads…so for the rest of the designers that presented, here’s what stood out:

The 1920’s/Great Gatsby influence was noticeable in Jenny Packham and Naeem Khan’s 2014 Bridal Collections:

Pronovias (carried at Schaffer’s Bridal) is always gorgeous and the detailing in their 2014 collection doesn’t disappoint- the Spanish design house always creates with an air of sophistication and this year’s collection is no exception. We love the unique ruffles that add dimension and interest on the bottom 2 gowns:

Theia made their mark with peachy-blush tones, texture, and even some ombre:

Romona Keveza’s ballroom style gowns (carried at Destiny’s Bride) are beautiful in color! Blush, Wedgewood Blue, and sparkly Nude:

Ines di Santo (carried at Mariee Gallery) presented a line that was appealing to edgier brides- the textural and architectural details are so interesting:

Monique Lhuillier (carried at Destiny’s Bride), who comes in a close second for our favorite from the Fall runway, embraced a romantic vintage vibe in her “Secret Garden-inspired world”. She didn’t go all pink like Vera Wang but she did make a statement with texture, color, and shape.

We love the ruffled tulle skirts (the color on the first is described as “smoke with a touch of lavender”)- gorgeous!

For the bride who wants something less “done up”, these sheath goddess gowns are pretty special too!

You’ll notice with many of the Fall 2014 collections that the shoulders are getting a lot of attention, much like backs were last year; Monique Lhuillier’s embroidered dresses are exquisite:

Not to be outdone, short dresses were seen in many bridal collections but Monique Lhuiller’s are among our favorite:

There you have it, the best of the best for Fall 2014! We can’t wait to see these gowns on REAL brides next Fall… in the meantime, we’re dreaming in PINK!
