Tie the Knot in Style: Introducing David's Bridal Spring 2012 Collection

CONSHOHOCKEN, PA, October 13, 2011 - The tried and true tradition of brides in all white and bridesmaids in color is being turned upside down. David's Bridal, the leading bridal and special occasion authority, is ahead of this trend with the launch of their new Spring 2012 Collection - featuring colored bridal gowns, white bridesmaid dresses and must-have head-to-toe accessories. David's Bridal continues to embrace both the classics and new styles in this collection, all designed to complement every bride's individual personality, body type and budget.

Bold, Beautiful Bridal Gowns
This season, old traditions meet new trends with updates on color, details and classic silhouettes. From soft-colored embellishments to fully colored gowns, color is all the rage with select gowns available in subtle shades of champagne, platinum tones and organza prints. Ball gowns feature modern twists including pickup skirts and pleated tiers as well as cascading ruffles and dramatic high-low hemlines. Subtle details like exquisite beading, delicate layered lace, grosgrain ribbons, floral prints and 3D flowers are also seen throughout the entire collection. Regardless of the style or silhouette, David's Bridal has the perfect dress for every bride with designs from the Oleg Cassini, Galina Signature, Galina, DB Studio, David's Bridal Plus, and David's Bridal Collections.

Brides looking for a classic elegance and opulent style will fall in love with the Oleg Cassini Collection. With its exquisitely embellished bodices and skirts, soft satin and delicate lace fabrics, this line is perfect for the bride who wants to look and feel like a princess on her big day. For the trend-seeking bride wanting that straight-off-the-runway style, the Galina Signature Collection features sophisticated and glamorous styles featuring charmeuse and airy sheer fabrics. The Galina Collection is ideal for the contemporary urban bride and highlights textured novelty fabrications in beautiful silhouettes that are both non-traditional and stunning.

For the traditional and romantic bride, The David's Bridal Collection features modern satin and taffeta gowns, boasting head-turning details such as beaded lace appliqués, organza ruffles and beautiful embellishments. The DB Studio Collection, perfect for the bride looking for a more informal look, includes a variety of long and short designer-inspired styles made with soft fabrics such as chiffon, charmeuse and jersey. Available in select stores and online at davidsbridal.com, the collection features intricate detailing including crystals, pearls, feathers, bows, 3D floral and tiered skirts and serves as a great second dress option. With plus-sizes available across all brands, every bride can find her dream dress at David's Bridal.

Coverage is extremely important this season and the collections deliver on the most updated options. Whether it is an illusion lace neckline, cap sleeve or one shoulder silhouette, David's Bridal offers modern coverage details that are a refreshing alternative to their strapless counterparts.

Elegant Bridal Party & Special Occasion Styles
The Royal Wedding may be in the past, but the fashion trends are here to stay with white bridesmaid dresses inspired by the one Pippa Middleton wore, becoming a must-have of the season. Color is still prevalent with playful water color printed gowns and the newest shades for spring - Begonia, Coral Reef, and Freesia as well as rich hues in shades of Regency and Malibu.

Soft printed organza dresses feature elegant silhouettes ranging from voluminous ball gowns to fit-and-flare stunners. It's all about comfort with chic short dresses with soft details like draping, pleating and ruffles made of crinkle chiffon, gossamer organza and stretch satin fabrics. Perfect for dancing, ball gowns feature structured fabrics sculpted with pleating and pick-ups. No matter her style, David's Bridal has the perfect dress suited for any bridesmaid.

Flower girls will look darling in bubble hems, tiers, pick-up ball gowns and tea-length dresses. Styles in soft flowing organza and princess tulle are perfect to wear again for First Communions or other special occasions. Select styles are designed as mini versions of bridal gowns. Brides can coordinate flower girls with the rest of the wedding party with select styles available in forty different colors.

Mothers of the Bride and Groom will shine in styles featuring one-shoulder necklines and tiered fabrics in both long and short silhouettes. Neutral colors like champagne, mocha, bronze and taupe are seen throughout the collection in addition to soft purples, navy and silvers. This season, jacket dresses are updated with new details including ruffles, lace and 3D floral appliques.

In addition to an array of bridal party offerings, David's Bridal is the ideal destination to find a party dress for an upcoming special event. Featuring one-shoulder necklines, 3D floral details, ruched silhouettes and cascading corkscrew skirts, the new styles in the collection are ideal options for the engagement party, bridal shower and the rehearsal dinner.

Dazzling Finishing Touches
Whether her style is more modern or traditional, brides-to-be can find head-to-toe accessories perfect for herself and her entire bridal party. From runway-inspired shoes to Victorian gloves and trendy handbags, David's Bridal has everything needed for a glamorous finishing touch.

The bride and her bridal party can add pops of color and sparkle to their overall look with accenting shoes, sashes, handbags and headpieces. Bold crystal earrings and bracelets similar to styles seen on the red carpet are a must-have for the entire wedding party. No longer just for the bride-to-be, headpieces are hot this season for the wedding day and beyond. Metal headbands, fascinators embellished with feathers, fabric flowers embellished with Russian tulle, crystals and pearls add a touch of Royal elegance to any look. Exude old Hollywood glamour in opera length gloves with details like bows, lace and crochet and fingerless styles.

For a touch personalization, bridal party members can don mix media sashes in Mercury silver, Watermelon and Plum while the bride sports a black horsehair and feather sash or a wide beaded sash in ivory or Mercury. Pretty platforms with accenting bling and bows in eye-catching floral prints are perfect ways to accent any bride or bridesmaids look.
