Wedding Dress Trends: Illusion Necklines

Posted by Jeffra on Oct 31, 2011

‘Translucent is the new white’ was how Reem Acra summed up her design aesthetic for her new collection, but she could have been speaking for almost any designer.

This year illusion necklines and illusion backs were more popular than ever.  The use of tulle was used on its own or embellished with beading or appliques and seen on the most modest to the sexiest gown.

And while lace is its own trend for 2012 (see lace trends) it was also an alternative to tulle as use as an illusion fabric.

Below are some of our favorite wedding gowns with illusion necklines or backs.
