Vintage is Modern

The modern look in wedding gowns definitely hearkens back to the glamorous days of lace and beads, layers of fabrics, and grandma's gown. But, unlike in grandma's day; today's designers are steering away from white and ivory as the only color choices. Shades of pink, from palest blush to cotton candy, are very popular. Also popular are silver, bronze, and gold. Even very traditional brides are choosing champagne and diamond white almost as often as traditional white.

If you're looking for lace, be sure to get "hands on" with several designer's lines. The best silks are soft and supple, not stiff and scratchy. Layering lace with tulle and satin are very popular for 2008. Bows, big and small, are everywhere, too!
