Wedding Dress Styles & Trends for Summer 2014

Jul 08, 2014
Top 5 Summer Wedding Dress Trends

Summer is in full-swing here at King Jewelers and we’re dying to share our favorite wedding dress styles and trends for summer 2014.

1. Flowing Silhouettes

Summer wedding dress styles tend to be much more streamlined than winter dresses. While there were a few (gorgeous) dresses with full skirts, the majority of gowns were in the mermaid or a-line style. With so many beach weddings occurring this summer, it’s no wonder a more comfortable, casual shape has gained popularity. This beautiful Theia creation ups the glamor of a simple sheath wedding dress with head-to-toe sequins.

2. Dramatic Embellishment

Summer 2014 has brought us opulent gowns decorated in sequins, beading, and three-dimensional flowers. If the runways are any indication, extravagance will equal excellence in 2014 summer weddings.  We love loading up on bling, but this Rivini dress with a large amount of embellishment in a concentrated area was one of our favorites.

3. Emphasis on the Back

More and more emphasis is being placed on the back of the wedding dress as time goes on. Sheer panels, shimmering appliqué, romantic lace, or dramatic buttons- the possibilities are endless and stunning. This Pallas Couture sheath gown with sheer inserts, buttons up the back, and sculpted lace cap sleeves is equally gorgeous from the front and the back!

4. Short Skirts

With the summer heat wave in full force, it was inevitable that some brides would start gravitating towards gowns with shorter wedding dress hemlines. Designers answered the demand in their summer lines, showcasing everything from knee-length elegance to well-above-the-knee drama. This Monique Lhuillier creation offsets the short skirt with delicate lace half sleeves. Speaking of lace sleeves…

5. Lace Sleeves

Kate Middleton’s lace sleeved wedding gown started a trend that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Nearly every designer showcases lace sleeves on at least one dress in their Spring/Summer collections. The romantic look adds a hint of vintage flair to any gown, with the added bonus of not getting you too overheated in the summer months. We’re partial to this off-the-shoulder Berta Bridal creation with a dramatic button up back.
