Brides and grooms definitely want to look their best on their wedding day. Christine Bellport shows us some of the hot trends in wedding wear.
From Chocolate tuxes to gems in your bridal bouquet, the trends are quickly changing and we found a bridal shop in Fitchburg that's keeping up with the times.
Something that is always in style -- one stop shopping. For that, we went to Moments to Cherish Bridals and Tuxedos.
The big look for brides this year -- gathered or tiered fabric like on this gown that flatters just about every figure.
"We are seeing more of the beaded lacework than the embroidery that was so popular a few years ago."
And this gown not only has that beaded lacework, but the halter style that is very big again in 2008.
Working in color is also back this year like this light pink detail on the bodice.
We are seeing big bows on the gowns as well, this one is in Chocolate.
The chocolate colored tux is also -very- in style.
As for bridesmaids -- it is all about bold colors including apple green, coral and turquoise.
And there are details for the men's tuxes to match, of course.
Tiaras or combs are being kept fairly simple, with the width being that of maybe a smaller headband, but with a lot of sparkle.
The sparkle can even be found in the bridal bouquet in oh-8.
Over in Europe, brides are wearing full colored gowns. Kim predicts that will make its way to us in one to two years. By the way, she says if you plan to order your gown, leave a minimum of 6 months time to do so.
