As you know we're always trying to keep you informed on what's going on in the ever-changing world of weddings. When it comes to wedding gowns, Wonderland Bridal is the end all be all destination for the brides of South Florida. The beauty of having them as a client of ours is that we are constantly in communication with their owners, Patti & Alicyn, who are committed to providing the best experience and the best dresses for ANY bride lucky enough to land an appointment in their store.
Let's get down to business. What can you expect to see in the world of wedding gowns in 2017?
Off-the-Shoulder dresses will continue to turn heads this season, while deep plunging necklines will be the sexy talk of the town. Surprisingly enough, expect an abundance of dresses with sleeves. South Florida brides are welcoming long sleeves with open arms because of the different options available. Long sleeve dresses are open enough to let a light breeze in, while capped sleeves call for a flattering alternative to covering arms.
White wedding dresses are out. Now more than ever, brides are swaying away from the traditional white or even ivory colored dresses to champagne, grey, blush and colored wedding dresses. What is a wedding dress without stand out accessories to pair them with? Bridal accessories are very popular with spring brides to ensure that every dress is complemented with the perfect piece of jewelry or hair piece.
Since 40% of couples get married between March and June, spring wedding trends have been one of the most popular searches amongst brides lately. ‘Tis the season to take advantage of florals. With so many flowers in bloom during spring your options are nearly endless. Bold bouquets are making a strong appearance in the wedding scene because of a spike in “garden party” inspiration.
When you think of summer makeup, you may immediately think that light pastels are the best look for a bride, but not this year. This summer we're seeing brides in bright, but BOLD lip colors. Similar to our summer bouquets.
Gone are the days of “stuffy bridesmaid dresses”, brides are showing more confidence within themselves by choosing bridesmaid dresses that stand out and complement their best girls as they stand next to them on the alter. More and more brides are opting to mismatch their bridesmaid dresses with styles that flatter each individual body type, skin color and personality.
Wedding trends are ever-changing as seasons come and go. It’s important to pay attention to what’s out there, consult with your wedding planner and most importantly, stay true to your heart.
You will notice that we have quite the busy wedding schedule these days. Stay tuned for live social media posts as we feature how some of our favorite #SceneBrides have implemented these trends and more into their very own wedding weekends!
