New York International Bridal Week just took place this past weekend. It is the premiere bridal trade show attracting the very best and brightest. As we know, a lot of wedding design trends start with fashion so we rounded up some of the latest looks coming for spring!
Jennifer Rovansek, owner of Bride Beautiful of Atlanta, just got back from market buying gowns for their 2017 brides. “Upcoming trends include beaded mermaids, lace ballgowns and sexy crepe gowns to pull off that European look that is so popular right now. One of our favorite upcoming trends is the use of different variations of lace, layered on top of each other to create a unique pattern and vintage feel. We cannot wait for these new gowns to come in!” she said.
“Our designers were clearly inspired by romance of epic proportions for the Spring 2017 season!” said Jacqueline Westney, owner of Wedding Angels Bridal Boutique. “We saw crepe featured in every fashion show, paired with exquisite beadwork or timeless lace for the ultimate sophisticated look. Silhouettes to flatter a woman’s figure were covered in beadwork to die for! Hayley Paige used cosmic-inspired star shaped sequins on several of her gowns. Removable trains of organza or lace made their fashion debut for this season, a convertible feature giving brides the option to wow their guests with cathedral length trains for the ceremony and remove them at the reception. By far the most exceptional emerging trend was the sheer, unlined side cutouts on gown bodices. We were wowed at every turn as we discovered all this season had to offer! We can’t wait to invite brides into our boutique as these gowns begin to arrive. Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram!”
Silhouettes that are flowy and lightweight. Simplistic and elegant designs match the mood for a sunset beach wedding.
Whimsical and romantic gowns, with lace applique or floral embellishments. Think secret garden meets princess.
Classic silhouettes are updated with a modern twist, such as peplum or cutouts.
