Three stunning options for two of 2014's biggest trends
While the world of ready-to-wear trends is one of constant innovation and change, the evolution of bridal trends is subtler, more respectful of tradition. But at the fall 2014 bridal shows, designers sent a number of show-stopping and eye-catching gowns down the runway, challenging the bridal status quo and taking things up a notch. From Vera Wang's all-pink collection to an exciting array of dramatic backs and appliqued skirts, 2014 is proving to be a fantastic time for the fashionista who's ready to walk down her own runway. We turned to bridal boutiques for three takes on two of 2014's biggest trends-texture and soft, blushy hues.Textured Gowns
