Wedding Dress Trends for 2017
There’ll always be excitement over the type of wedding dress you’ll pick for your wedding day. With 2017 approaching and your wedding date, too, you will likely already have begun your ideal wedding dress hunt. Here are some of the wedding dress trends for 2017.
Like previous years, 2017 is bringing an endless array of options for brides to choose from. Opulent and over-the-top to minimal and sleek, this years brides will have plenty to browse. We’ve narrowed the trends down to our few top favorites, hoping to make the process a little bit easier.
Sleek Satin Gowns
The sleek satin style is one of those rare wedding dress trends that satisfies minimalists, yet we love its power. Gorgeous chic satin designs are easy to combine with exaggerated silhouettes thanks to the fabric’s clean, subtle sheen and give the gown an unimaginable power. Power to the brides who decide to pull this one off.
Art Nouveau Lace
For all of you brides who appreciate what we love to call “serious glamour”, this trend is on point; the next year’s cream of the crop is wedding gowns in a particularly embellished, intricate style combining floral flourishes and the curvilinear lines of the Art Nouveau wedding dress trends. Even though lace is a perennially popular pick for wedding gowns, these particular combinations are perfect for all brides looking for that wow factor.
Off the Shoulder
This universally flattering trend had a huge comeback in street style all throughout 2016, and we don’t see it going away in 2017, especially after what we’ve witnessed on 2017 runways. The interesting thing is that this street trend replicated itself onto the bridal catwalks, giving birth to some amazing bridal pieces.
All 2017 brides-to-be will have the opportunity to enjoy a variety of off-shoulder styles, depending on the type of wedding they are throwing – from old school elegant to bohemian-beachy, there is something for everyone and thats why we love this wedding dress trend for 2017.
If you’ve been following the bridal scene, you know how popular three-dimensional floral appliques have been for the past few seasons. Well, 2017 is also going to accept the appliqués with open arms as their popularity is still in a full bloom—and for good reason.
This gorgeous embellishment fits splendidly with dresses of any shape and style (meaning, brides of any size, shape and style may wear them), and provides visual interest on gowns. For the brides who aren’t that big on bling and sparkle, the floral appliqués will do all the work (although they do look exquisite when scattered with crystals).
While we have been caught by surprise with the past few seasons’ exploration of unusual bridal separates in the guise of pants and a jacket or a skirt and a top, 2017 adds a little more drama. The brides will have the option to wear full-length capes in a material to match their gowns… can you just imagine the gorgeousness of it? A layer can be an alternative to a traditional train or veil and it’s breathtaking in its own right. Paired with the right pair of ivory wedding shoes, a layered look is one of those edgy, can’t-take-my-eyes-off-of-you looks.
Yet another breathtaking bridal moment! In case you didn’t know, embroidery is originally a street style trend that’s obviously fit into the bridal scene perfectly. In fact, everyone is loving it so much that it had a showing at nearly every presentation.
Florals were definitely the motif of choice for a tonal look that feels more ethereal (and wedding-appropriate), and everyone was stunned. The good news? The trend is applicable to both ball gowns and more body-conscious styles.
I hope this has helped out in your quest for the perfect wedding dress. Happy wedding dress hunting!
