I just received an update from Sally Lowrenson Conant of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists on some trends for wedding gowns coming out of the New York Bridal Market 2010. It seems flowers are quite the trend...flowers on everything. There are giant flat ones appliquéd to gowns. There are masses of three-dimensional ones sewn all over the the wedding gown. There are even veils with three-dimensional flowers.
There seems to be fewer pearls but lots of "diamonds" with flashes of color such as large (flowered, of course) cumber buns on a relatively plain gown. Designers are still using lots of lace. And tulle is back - in giant ball gowns with huge trains.
Here are some links to other wedding gown web sites where you can see for yourself -
All of these trends make for interesting challenges for wedding gown specialists in handling your wedding gown cleaning and preservation. But just how wedding gown cleaning techniques are affected will depend on the fabric, dyes and methods of attaching the flowers. Make sure your wedding gown is cleaned and preserved by someone qualified and experienced in wedding gown cleaning. Check with us for quality wedding gown cleaning in Birmingham, Alabama.
