There’s a new trend emerging for 2011. While the strapless gown shows no signs of diminishing in popularity, we’re seeing a rise in the number of gowns with not just lace boleros but full shrugs covering up the neck, sheer yokes and delicate and elaborate coverups. Whether you choose to wear them for the ceremony or through the whole, demure is back – and if you want to be a classic blushing bride, we think Alan Hannah’s Victoria Coat and Sassi Holford’s Georgie are perfect examples of the look.
Alan Hannah Victoria Coat
This deliciously decadent lace and ruffle coat looks amazing over a plain dress, long or short. It really has to be tried on to appreciate the shimmer and sparkle in the tiny crystals, and the fabulous ripple effect as you move.

Sassi Holford Georgie
Georgie is a beautifully elegant dress, featuring a silk sweetheart bodice and skirt with a sheer organza high-necked and cap sleeve overlay that covers the skirt. With a satin underbust ribbon detail, this is a lovely demure style for a classic bride who wants simple but not too simple.
