We're back and guest blogging with our friends at Wonderland Bridal to give you what all brides want to know as they say hello to their big wedding year!
As we welcome a new year, we also welcome new wedding trends and we're sitting down with the women who know best, Patti & Alicyn at Wonderland Bridal! Not only do they get to dress brides everyday, but they also have the opportunity to connect with some of the most prominent wedding gurus in the industry.
Let’s start with what we know best, wedding dresses! Here are some insights on what you can expect next year in the ever-changing world of wedding trends.
Off-the-Shoulder dresses will continue to turn heads in 2017, while deep plunging necklines will be the sexy talk of the town. What we’re really seeing is an abundance of dresses with sleeves. Yes ladies, sleeves! We know this is something a lot of you brides are happy about, so we are welcoming the year with more long sleeve dresses than you have ever seen before in Wonderland. Don’t think you can rock long sleeves in the South Florida heat? Capped sleeves and embellished sleeves are quite popular as well. We have dresses in any style and for any time of the year. *All styles can be found in Wonderland starting Spring 2017.
White is out! Now more than ever, we are seeing brides sway from the traditional white or even ivory colored dresses to champagne, grey, blush and colored wedding dresses.
It’s time to bring in the big guns, because this is the year for big bold accessories. Every bridal show we attended, we couldn’t help but notice the amount of hair accessories and earrings taking over the runways. Flower crowns and hair jewelry will also be making their way into 2017 weddings as well.
Gone are the days of the stuffy bridesmaid dresses. 2017 brides want their girls to look and feel flawless as they stand next to her on her wedding day. Two piece dresses are big in the bridal world, but who says the bride is the only one who can have all the fun? Anything goes with a two piece bridesmaid dress. Long skirts, short skirts, midi skirts, cami tops, long sleeves, and crop tops, you can do it all.
Mismatching bridesmaid dresses are here to stay. Designers are well aware of the demand of mismatching (but not so mis-matchy) bridesmaid dresses. In Wonderland, we’re here to assist you in your overall vision of your wedding theme and accompanying dresses.
Back detail is something brides are paying more attention to this year. This is a great way to make a simple dress pop with cutouts, pretty fabrics, bows and unusual cuts.
The 2017 bride is getting edgier and edgier with mixed metallics, belts, silk and the color black.
This year, it’s all about the Maid of Honor having her moment. We’re seeing the MOH in a single printed dress or full sequin, while the rest of the bridesmaids match in something different.
