Oh fall... How I love you. Not only does the PSL make a comeback, but sweaters for chilly nights and fur-lined leggings are a must. Oh, and Bridal Markets are open!
For those who do not know what Bridal Market is let me try to explain. It's like puppies, rainbows, and falling in love for bridal shop owners. And honestly, that doesn't even do it justice. This is the time of year when salons and designers come together to showcase their newest collections and plus size wedding dresses. We chat fabrics, colors, designs, and then get our favorites to bring home for you, the beautiful bride, to try! Did I mention getting new gowns is like Christmas? Twice a year? Oh, and don't forget the travel to Chicago, Dallas, New York, LA, etc.
But enough about how awesome that is. What I really love about Bridal Market is getting a sneak peak into what the newest trends will be for the following year. And taking this awesome information and sharing it with my awesome #curvybrides! So here is the Top Five Wedding Trends of 2017 you should be watching, paying attention to, and hopefully incorporating into your perfect #curvygown!
That's right. COLOR. Ivory & white are so last year. This year it is all about bringing fun hues, shades, and unconventional color to your plus size wedding dress. Whether you're looking for a pop or something more subtle color is a great way to highlight your complexion, time of year the wedding takes place, or even your own unique personality.
No. I am not kidding. Capes are seriously a thing. No I am not talking Batman or Superman crazy capes. I am talking about sophisticated, elegant, and stunning capes which make the perfect accessory for any plus size wedding dress. Lace or chiffon, short or cathedral length these babies can complete your look and give your guests something to talk about!
THIS IS MY MOST FAVORITE THING EVER. For those who don't understand I have an unexplainable infatuation with anything floral so to see this wedding trend come full circle makes my heart incredibly happy. Don't worry! Florals done tastefully will have no similarity to your grandmother's couch cushions. Just check out this beautiful babe below!
4. Off The Shoulder
Such a classic look. Off the shoulder gowns create a gorgeous neckline and can cover "problem areas" which saves time at the gym! But seriously, this is one of my favorite trends I cannot wait to see implemented in our stock pieces.
5. Airy Skirts
Light-as-air dresses make for one happy bride at the end of the night. Who said gowns have to weigh a million pounds anyway? Effortless fabrics such as tulle and organza give breathability like never before.
Color, floral, capes, off the shoulder, and airy skirts are my favorite trends to keep an eye out for looking into 2017! Whether you're looking for a rustic, elegant, industrial, urban or modern wedding these trends can take your dress game to the next level. Want to know something even better?
