Wedding Fashion | Crop Top Wedding Gown

We love following the newest trends in wedding fashion and are delightfully surprised at the newest trend for next season – the crop top gown! We’ve seen models, actresses, and even bold fashionista’s in Colorado rocking the crop top. With the ability to show a peek-a-boo tiny amount of skin, or the toned abs you’ve been working on forever, crop top wedding gowns are this seasons next big thing!

Crop top gowns also make a great reception dress style if you wish to keep your ceremony gown more traditional. What do you think of this style?

This is my final post from Bridal Fashion Week from Spring 2011, and this is merely a collection of my favorites. I have always had a special place in my heart for the amazing Claire Pettibone – her dresses have such beautiful textures and draping, details and fit. With my background in fashion and apparel merchandising, I always pay close attention the way a dress fits each body. These dresses, from top to bottom, were designed by Claire Pettibone, Nicole Miller Bridal, Monique Lhuillier, Lazaro Bridal and Douglas Hannant.

Designers have gotten so intricate when it comes to designing the unique detail work on their gowns – this collection of gowns from 2011 Bridal Fashion Week impresses me. I was thinking about all the moving pieces to construction such a complex garment and the amount of time and the attention to detail! These gowns are truly heirlooms.

Thanks to pics by The Bride’s Guide from Martha Stewart Weddings, and the gowns from top to bottom are designed by Douglas Hannant BridalIan Stuart, Lazaro Bridal, Badgley Mischka and Liancarlo.
