Bridal Gown Trends by Mark Ingram of Mark Ingram Atelier

  1. Lace: “Tattoo,” or embroidered, lace on sheer tulle offers brides a great way to cover up while still being sexy. This Carolina Herrera style is one of my favorites.

  2. Retro: Old Hollywood glamour styles like this one from Australian designer Johanna Johnson are so popular with brides right now. These slinky styles give brides their red carpet moment.

  3. Color: My brides are beginning to embrace color. They love the very bold and dramatic red gowns by Vera Wang.

  4. Sleeves: Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, brought back the sleeve to bridal gowns. Monique Lhuiller shows how it can be modern and sexy. I love the slit for the leg!

  5. Ball gowns: Ball gowns are back! But now they are made with layers of airy fabrics that have a light, transparent feeling like this gorgeous Marchesa.
