Top Fashion Wedding Dresses of 2013 Spring/Summer Part 1
Posted April 8, 2013on:
This year we don’t want a wedding dress that’s overly sexy, but we also don’t want to be “frumpy.” In general, we are sick of the strapless dress trend, but we were willing to overlook it for a few outstanding dresses. And we love something that pops—we want an unexpected design element, color or intricate back to create a wow factor when walk down the aisle.
1. Asymmetric Lace from Anna Maier
When we posted the back of this asymmetric lace Anna Maier dress on Facebook, your response was a unanimous “Stunning!” One fashionable reader commented that the dress would look great with evening gloves.
2. Lace and Buttons from Cocoe Voci
There’s no doubt that our readers love an elegant back on a wedding dress, especially this one from Cocoe Voci. The combination of short sleeves, a long row of buttons and overall lace made this one of your all-time favorite dresses, in 2012 and beyond.
3. Ornate Ball Gown from Eve of Milady
This Eve of Milady ball gown juxtaposes a classic, simple tulle skirt with an ornately beaded bodice. One Facebook commenter even said her 10-year old daughter has asked for this dress for her future wedding.
4. LUXE LACE CAPE FROM MANUEL MOTA
We asked on Facebook what jewelry you would pair with this Manuel Mota dress, and our commenters agreed to keep the jewelry simple. The design of the cape-like sleeves and all-over lace are enough glamour to stand on their own.
5. Dramatic Petals from Kenneth Pool
We asked on Facebook what your favorite element of this Kenneth Pool dress is. It seems it was hard for you to choose between the dramatic skirt, beaded bodice and illusion straps, but with coaxing the majority of our commenters pointed to the straps.
6. Scalloped Lace from Reem Acra
The back of this Reem Acra dress was described by our Facebook commenters as both “elegant” and “breathtaking”. We completely agree!
7. Floral Illusion Sleeves from Monique Lhuillier
8. Royal Style from Dennis Basso
9. Champagne and Lace from Lazaro
Though our Facebook audience told us this year they want sleeves on their wedding dresses, they still fell in love with this strapless champagne gown from Lazaro. Even traditional brides said they’d wear this light color in place of a white dress.
10. Beaded Drama from Manuel Mota
The response on Facebook to this Manuel Mota wedding dress was two-fold this year: First, our commenters agreed that this all-over beaded dress is stunning. But they also agreed that this dress goes beyond a wedding dress and could be worn for any formal occasion.
