And the bride wore...a Jumpsuit???

Yes, you did read that title correctly. According to the editor-in-chief of Brides magazine, one of the most highly anticipated trends of 2014 isn't a wedding dress, but is indeed a wedding jumpsuit. This unconventional wedding day look is reportedly popular among brides who are walking down the aisle for the second (or whatever number) time and those hosting destination weddings. J. Crew seems to be able to claim responsibility, at least partially, for this daring new trend after they debuted a white lacy jumpsuit with a plunging v-neck and a back adorned with bows.

However, don't fear if you are a bride who was planning on a more traditional look there are plenty of other trends that you can check out:

  • Subtle pinks and blush colored gowns will be everywhere

  • Vintage looks inspired by the recent remake of the "Great Gatsby" including:

    • dramatic veils

    • cap sleeved gowns

    • feathers, in the veil, bouquet, gown, anywhere and everywhere

  • Lace, lace, and did I mention lace?

  • Spectacular low-backed gowns

  • Decorative elements like jewels, sheer illusion necklines, intricate beadwork

  • Silhouette style gowns in sleek fabrics

  • Shades of blue

  • Hints of metallics, think delicate gold threading

  • Shorter dresses, with everything from tea-length all the way to what could only be called wedding mini-dresses were all over the runways at the hottest designers shows

  • Rosette finishes and floral designs sewn into the gown

  • Cover ups and jackets from embellished to feathers and furs

This year's trends show a serious turn toward gowns that range from romantic to whimsical to jumpsuits. If there is one thing we can count on from this year's new styles, it's that there is something to make every blushing bride happy.
