Years ago, bows used to be popular, whether you were wearing them on your head or on your clothing. They were one of the biggest trends of 2011. Seven years later, bows are back in style. They either compliment the back of the gown as an accessory or the front of the dress as an accent bow. Bows are more commonly seen on the back of the wedding dress to bring attention to a long dress tail as the bride is walks down the aisle. With bows, you can use them with a simple look, such as small delicate bows, or you can really get noticed with large decadent bows. A statement bow will get noticed and may spark many fashion-related conversations at your wedding.
