2. Plunging Necklines – Are you brave enough to take the plunge? Low cut gowns are a popular option for the more daring brides-to-be. With a small bust, these gowns can look extremely classic and sophisticated. Although this isn’t a traditional option, plunging necklines can create a timeless elegance similar to the traditional gown.

6. The Tulle Overlay – The beauty of the tulle overlay is that you get two dresses in one! Many brides are buying a tight fitted elegant gown with detachable tulle. Create the perfect Princess look for your fairytale ceremony, then ditch the tulle and get ready to party in your evening dress.

7. Feathered – This trend definitely isn’t for everyone, but if you’re looking for something extravagant and memorable – then feathers is a must. A tight-fitted fishtail gown with a feather train has been a popular celebrity option, creating that daring yet elegant “A List” look.
