So it may be a good idea to find out who are the top wedding dress designers in the world at this time. Many of them are coming up with classical or bohemian designs, using lace, luxurious silk and other materials. There are also designers who are throwing out structure and going for new trends, such as capes, jackets, metallic colors, cascading ruffles, bows, and others.

The kind of dress you want for your wedding is entirely your choice. You can go traditional and appear classic and timeless. Or you can experiment and opt for a new trend to stand out from the crowd. You can wear white, which has been the most popular color, or even select a colored wedding gown. If you ask me, I would always opt for white, but that is purely my personal decision. Nothing wrong with either approach!
