In the past couple of seasons we’ve seen almost every colour imaginable on the bridal runways from pale pink and mint green to black—yes black—but one of the most approachable ways to try this trend is with a shade that’s slightly darker than the traditional pure white. For Fall 2012, many designers showed deep ivory gowns, and we’re absolutely in love with this warm and wearable hue. Here are 10 of our favourite dark ivory bridal dresses.
Who says you can’t wear sleeves on your wedding day? Granted, the strapless has always been a popular pick amongst brides, but we definitely won’t say no to a little cover-up. And, ever since the Duchess of Cambridge walked down the aisle in long, lace sleeves, designers have been racing to create gowns with the beautiful element in mind. From cap sleeves to covered arms to subtle lace, the sleeved dress has definitely been reinvented for 2012.
