The beaded wedding gown trend has seen it's ups and downs. When done right a beaded bodice can look classy and sophisticated.

How adorable is this short wedding dress by Jenny Packham! It's feminine, chic, and has a touch of retro with a bit of a modern look to it. Along with the short wedding gown trend it also has the illusion neckline, which makes the dress feel complete. It's a lovely little dress that is sweet for the ceremony or just for the reception as a 2nd dress.

Whether you love to follow fashion trends straight from the runway or just love the bold look of the 2012 wedding gown trends, remember to find the look that suits you and fits your personality. Don't go for a look just because it's trendy or because it's what Michelle Williams wore to the Oscars. Also, don't feel disappointed if your favorite wedding gown trend doesn't look the way you wanted it to, try on as many dresses as you want until you know it's the one. You should love your gown because it's what feels good and not because someone said it's the latest in wedding gown trends, but I do hope you love these gowns as much as I do!
