Richmond Wedding Gown Trends
By Kate Linde, Kate Linde Bridal

Beautiful, fashion-savvy brides in Richmond have much to celebrate this year. They are looking forward to walking down the aisle in style thanks to some of the hottest wedding gown trends to hit the RVA in years!

Long Live Glitz and Glamour!

Many of today’s favorite gowns pay homage to an era when weddings were formal, lavish affairs. Accents include shimmering crystals and glistening brooches. Beading work is intricate and luminous. Silhouettes are made sexier with flattering ruching and dare-to-bare-it-all, plunging necklines. The perfect diamond or rhinestone-studded tiara pulls the ensemble together to create a look that’s ready for a dramatic entrance and a night of pure romance.

Ruffle Me!

Fun and flirty textures are still getting their fair share of attention and longing glances, especially in the form of ultra-popular ruffles! Layers and layers of feathery fabrics create interesting gowns that range from shorter, casual numbers reminiscent of a 20’s flapper dress to exquisite gowns with long ruffled trains. Many brides who choose the style reflect it throughout their wedding décor, including ruffles on their invitations, linens and even on their cake!


The strapless ball gown is timeless and ever popular, but it has competition this year. Revealing “V’s” send both the front and back of some sexy gowns plunging. High, sheer necks, sometimes with beading or feather accents are simultaneously modest and alluring. Skinny straps, pretty little cap sleeves and feminine gathers hugging just one shoulder are all alternative options for brides of every style.

Return to White

Pops of color, including high contrast hues like black and dark red are still popular, as are gowns in every shade of ivory, champagne and cream. However, today’s bride is beginning to flock back to bright white, making the traditional choice the bold one and capturing attention as the unmistakable star of the show.

Richmond brides enjoy a range of possibilities when it comes to selecting a wedding gown. Traditional, contemporary and cosmopolitan – our women of the world have a world of beauty at their fingertips. What style of gown catches your eye? What will you wear down the aisle?
