Lace “Sleevelets” win out over Bare arms: The royally-inspired cover-up look first popularized by Kate Middleton two years ago is still going strong. We’re loving both billowy and skintight versions. Lace Cutouts on sheer sleeves are beautiful and fresh.
Ballerina-Beauty: If you’re a romantic at heart, this Tulle and Lace Combo we see could be perfect for you! In 2013 Raleigh Wedding Boutiques are showing Designers such as Vera Wang, Christos and Kenneth Pool, who have, “ethereal, billowing clouds of tulle anchored by vines of lace.”
Looser Fitting Gowns with Peplum: 2012 was the year of tight, form fitting gowns. This year the designs shown in Raleigh have mellowed out a bit. Peplums give the illusion of smaller waists and add curves to boyish shapes. Overall the looser style with Peplum is more forgiving and figure-flattering on a variety of body types.
Short: There are dozens of SHORT Wedding Dresses available in Raleigh! We love the look!
Shopping Tip! Remember that your gown is pretty much made JUST FOR YOUR WEDDING. You might not find the perfect Dress in Raleigh, and be able to take it home! Because of that, you don’t want to put off the purchase until the last minute! Begin shopping six to nine months before your wedding.
It takes about four months for a manufacturer to make a dress and another two months to complete the alterations. Very elaborate gowns will take longer. Short on time? Many shops do rush orders for an additional fee, but your choices will likely be limited. They also may have a sale section with samples you can buy off the rack. If you’re lucky, you can get one that needs just minor alterations.
