Wedding Wednesday: How to create your personal bridal style...

Are you planning your 2012 nuptials? Check out the top 5 trends for 2012 courtesy of Weddingbells....

Sexy Structure. According to Fang, most brides are still loving strapless styles, which means an impeccable fit is paramount—there’s nothing worse than a bride hiking up her gown all day. To that end, White on White’s latest gowns have more built-in (hidden!) structure to ensure you are lifted and cinched in all the right places.

2. 3-D Beading.
Brides can’t get enough elaborate, dramatic beading, says Fang. At White on White, ribbons, rosettes, pearls and crystals are all incorporated by hand. The “Valentina” gown with its blinged-out bodice (see photo above) is a perfect example of this hot trend.

3. Luxurious Lace.
Thanks in part to Kate Middleton’s lovely lace wedding dress, this traditional bridal fabric is having a major moment. Indeed, Fang has noticed more brides asking for lace accents. Speaking of which, a little bit of lace on the bodice of your dress is a great way to incorporate this trend if you don’t want to embrace it wholeheartedly (à la Kate’s full-length sleeves).

4. Two-in-one Looks.
Want to switch up your outfit for the reception? You’re not alone. Fang says more and more brides are asking for gowns with removable trains and straps, as well as dresses with matching boleros and jackets. This is a budget-friendly trend if ever I saw one—why buy two dresses when you could have one that does double duty?

5. Tulle Accents.
Tulle is the ultimate girly fabric, and it’s big for 2012—literally! Look for ballgowns with massive layered skirts and fluffy ruffles galore, says Fang.
