For the bridal season of 2013, wedding dress designers have presented some of the most feminine and sophisticated collections of the past few years. Even when continuing trends from past seasons, such as the elegant peplum, designers revamped everything through new textures and fabrics. Wedding dresses in 2013 feature details that catch the eye: floral lace embroidery, beautiful pastels and see-through designs, sensual cutouts and romantic design elements.
The trends in bridal wear this year dictate in favor of the illusion and portrait back wedding dress, with delicate tulle, lace embroidery or jewelry details.

The gowns feature around the waist jewelry, bows of all sizes, colors and fabrics, or sophisticated peplums.
