Bridal Gown Trends for 2013

With the winter snow beginning to thaw, spring is in the air, and with that, the highly anticipated start to wedding season! For months, newly engaged brides have been planning their weddings down to the smallest detail, especially, (the most important in our opinion) the wedding dress.

Having been selling bridal fabrics for over 80 years, we see bridal trends come to life as brides flow in and out of our store to pick the fabrics for their custom dresses.  Working with these brides inspired this blog.  Read about all of the 2013 bridal trends and see the fabrics at Supreme that have been most popular among our amazing and beautiful brides.

1. Colors: Blush and Grey

We love to see this break from the traditional white and ivory colored dresses (which is actually a newer trend – from the last 100 or so years) and incorporating hints of color into their dresses.  By far the two most popular colors this year are blush and grey.  However, we have gotten a few brides who are very experimental with their color choices and are incorporating marigold yellows or kelly greens into their dresses.blush 1

2. Old Hollywood/Screen Sirens

3. Bare Backs/ Portrait Backs

There is nothing sexier than a portrait back or back detail – it really makes the dress a 360 degree piece.  Too often people forget that the back of a garment can be just as interesting or even more interesting than the front.

4. Lace Nouveau

We saved our most favorite trend for last: lace.  Lace is having a strong comeback in bridal wear.  Supreme Novelty fabrics has a room completely dedicated to lace – its hard not to fall in love with it when you spend as much time with it as we do. From chantilly to lyon lace, SNF has it all.  Build the wedding dress of your dreams with us, and one or two amazing bridal designers.
