With the new year fast approaching, we believe its time to start looking out for a way to make your wedding as trendy as possible if you are a 2017 bride. Away with the old and in with the new; thats the mantra we are working with today. Our aim is to ensure that your wedding becomes the yardstick for other brides to measure whats hot and whats not. On that not, we present to you whats pipping hot in the world of wedding trends for 2017.
Off-the-shoulder Wedding Dresses: From all indications, women are currently loving the shoulder baring sort of fashion these days. The strapless wedding gown now has some major competition from the off-the-shoulder silhouette, which also happens to be one of the most prominent spring runway trends.
The Caped Wedding Dress: another trend that is fast becoming a regular is the caped look. Asides the fact that it gives you an air of royalty or even a super-hero feel, wink, capes have appeared here and there over the past couple of seasons, the runway-, street style- they are officially having their moment in the bridal world. From Lela Rose’s adorable collared, button-down top to Naeem Khan‘s lace-trimmed, high-low poncho to many long billowing cloak-trains, capes are everywhere for spring 2017.
Long Sleeves: Seems Kate Middleton saw into the future. With peekaboo lace and shimmery illusion details, the new long sleeves are anything but uptight.
Floral Detailing: Floral details are a wedding dress staple, but designers took flowers to a new level for fall 2017 with the most exquisite, so-pretty-you’ll-want-to-cry 3D embellishments.
Plunging Necklines: While the sexy, open back trend isn’t going anywhere, this season, a massively plunging neckline jumps into the mix. From a relatively discreet illusion-covered slash to a down-to-the-pelvis V-neck plunge, cleavage is a “thing” for bridal in 2017. Start stocking up on Hollywood tape and breast petals right now, ladies.
Lace It Down:Lace is always a bridal mainstay, but for spring 2017, there seems to be a profusion of it. We can’t help but look to a certain music festival in the California desert since we’re noticing a bit more of that laid-back old-school silhouettes we’re used to seeing in the material.
Spectacular Veils: The two classic elements stayed strong on the bridal runways, but with the sort of drama and glamour that would make for the perfect “flowing in the wind” Instagram and Snapchat moments. Veils were accented with embroidery, lace, beading and, in certain cases, Swarovski crystals; romantic trains ranged from a shorter church length to a Royal Wedding-esque cathedral style. Reem Acra went extra creative by offering a metallic embroidered back train that converts into a veil.
