Come fall wedding dresses will be all about the details. From color, sheer skirts and feathery accents to illusion bodices and floral details, brides will be wearing intricate works of art.
But even amid such finery, emphasizing femininity will continue to be key for designers and brides, said Mia Antalics, owner of Garnish, a bridal boutique in Ruxton Station.
"Sex appeal is part of bridal," said Antalics. "A woman doesn't get to wear gowns like this every day. She can show curves that she wouldn't regularly wear. I'm open to all of it … from the plunging fronts or backs to the close silhouettes of the crepe fabric and colors, I love it."
