Top 10 Hottest Wedding Dresses for Summer 2013 Part I

Top 6: Cascading Peplum

Last season’s structured fit has mellowed out a bit, giving way to a looser style that is more forgiving and figure-flattering on a variety of body types. However, the payoff is still the same: Peplums whittle the waist and give boyish shapes curve appeal.


Top 7: Illusion Neckline

This season, designers like Pnina Tornai, Ines Di Santo, Marchesa, Reem Acra and more treated us to a disappearing act. Buttons, jewels and lace detailing appeared to magically float down models’ backs and around their shoulders. This feminine look is a great option for brides marrying in spring or summer seeking lightweight coverage.

Top 8: Golden Girls

Last season, red ruled the runways. This time around, gold was the hue of choice, a perfect option for second weddings or unconventional brides. Romona Keveza’s entire collection was dedicated to Bond girls (Skyfall, the hotly-anticipated 23rd James Bond Flick, is scheduled to hit theaters next month). Theia, Reem Acra, Anna Maier-Ulla Maijer and Lazaro also gave their gowns the Midas touch.


Top 9: Bold Florals

The newest bouquet of gown styles is less garden variety and more fantastical, with floral appliqués as big as your fist and gathered silhouettes that resemble strewn petals, like those shown at Marchesa. What better way to bring an enchanted garden theme to life? Take baby steps with a floral-embellished veil or a few well-placed buds.


Top 10: Unadulterated Whimsy

Every bride wants to feel like a goddess on her wedding day. If Bohemian-chic fits your M.O., gowns with butterflies, metallic embroidery, scattered leaves and ombré effects will strike your fancy. Whether you chose to go barefoot like Claire Pettibone’s models is optional.
