"Getting married in 2012? Here are some hot wedding dress trends to keep in mind when you start shopping"..

Monique Lhuillier "Lina" Spring 2012 collection

1. Polka Dots!

Who would have thought that what appeared in many ready-to-wear lines (Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs etc) would have taken off into the direction of bridal gowns! A fun and unexpected twist.

2. Two-Tiered Skirts

With the addition of multiple layered skirts, designers have added extra dimension, and flair to the hip area. What a fantastic way to create an incredible silhouette. A perfect cut to give the illusion of curves or to camouflage too much curve...we love this trend for both reasons.

Marchesa Fall 2012 Collection

3. Colour

Who said you have to wear white on your wedding day? Break from tradition and follow the designers down their colourful path. Anything goes this year, from light silver, to lettuce green and even black.

Vera Wang, Spring 2012 - gorgeous!

4. Embroidered Florals

From Oscar de la Renta's "lilies of the valley" to Caroline Herrera's "anemones" bridal gowns are taking their inspiration from nature with embroidered floral patterns throughout the entire dress.

"Florence", Watters Collection

5. Sheer / See-Through Skirts

Go ahead! Show some leg. That's what many designers are hoping brides will do with their 2012 sheer skirted bridal gowns. Now you can really show off those wedding shoes!

6. Feathers

Feathers are ethereal. Whether you have a few feathers on your neckline or you have a full on feather skirt, the result will be angelic!

Pronovias "Eneida", Manuel Mota Collection

7. Separates

Modern, elegant and oh so retro..the maxi skirt is here for 2012 and we definitely love this very chic take on bridal fashion.

8. Illusion Necklines

We can thank Kate Middleton for this trend. It's suddenly extremely cool to cover up. A dainty fabric over the décolletage is super sexy and super hot. A great new alternative to the strapless gown, non?
