What trends have you noticed for wedding dresses in 2012?
Since Delica Bridal is a fashion forward bridal boutique you will always find the latest fashions straight off the New York Bridal fashion runways in our store!

Here are some of our top three bridal fashion trends for Spring 2012:
Neckline Options!
Brides are looking to cover up skin that is typically exposed, with sheer, gentle fabrics. The illusion necklines are up and coming and unique from past collections. This look can appear conservative but at the same time, revealing (and super sexy!)

Two-tiered Skirts!
The past couple of years we have seen a lot of bridal skirts with three dimensional florals BUT this year it’s all about two-tiered skirts. These skirts focus on the hemline and are very flattering, as the top tier hides wider hips.

White and Ivory are the traditional colors worn by brides ever since Queen Victoria wore a white gown in 1840! However, designers are looking to add a little color to spice things up. In the past collections, we have seen touches of silvers, lilacs and greens in bridal gowns. This season, we are seeing that gowns look fabulous in other colors besides white…especially BLUSH!

    What are some tips to help brides starting the search for the perfect wedding dress?
    Don’t come in on your first visit with too many critics. We often see brides come in with a huge entourage making it hard for the bride because of too many opinions. Although it’s a lot of fun to involve the people that matter most with helping you find that special gown, it will be a lot easier for you to come with one or two people; These people should be the ones that give you their honest opinion and truly know your style and wedding inspiration. Our tip is to bring the entourage when your actual gown arrives in store, after you have already committed to it!

    If you have a budget that you don’t want to go over, let your consultant know. This helps ensure you don’t fall in love with a gown that is out of your budget and leaves you disappointed. We have beautiful gowns in our store that range from $1000-$6500.00, allowing fabulous options for everyone! Our tip is to be honest and don’t be shy to express your true budget. We do our best to accommodate all brides.

    Before you ask your closest gals to stand up for you in your wedding, it’s a great idea to inform them about the financial costs involved. The average bridesmaid dress in Canada ranges between $225.00 and $400.00. The financial commitment can become quite large with a dress, shoes, hair and makeup! Your girls will appreciate it more knowing the costs beforehand, then finding out after you chosen their bridesmaid dress! Our tip is to involve your bridesmaids in picking their gowns to make sure everyone is happy with the look and the cost.
