We’ve seen brides opting for non-white dresses (picture pale pinks, creams and metallics) for years now, but a trend that’s just emerging? Bridal blues. Expert tip: stick to a blue underlay or subtle blue threading so as to not overdo the look.
A new take on princess
A classic ball gown will always have a special place in our hearts, but for the bride who’s looking for something a little less dramatic while maintaining a classic shape, we love an A-line skirt. Nips at the waist, never goes out of style, flattering on every body type…check, check, check. Expert tip: want the princess look for your ceremony but also want the freedom to dance at your reception? Add a layer or two of crinoline under your a-line skirt for drama and remove when it’s time to hit the dance floor.
Dramatic backs are nothing new in bridal (two of our celeb favories: Portia de Rossi and Chrissy Teigen) but these styles take back interest to a new level. Super deep plunging backs, illusion mesh, beaded and lace details make these some of the most swoon-worthy styles we’ve seen for the coming season. Expert tip: Invest in appropriate undergarments so you’re not worried about any wardrobe malfunctions.
So, which bridal trends from this season’s bridal fashion week are your favorite?
