Your wedding dress. One of the most important, and fun, details to pick out for your wedding day! When searching for that perfect wedding dress, you want to be able to visit shops that are centered on their client relationships and that offer a warm and welcoming atmosphere when trying on all the different options. It’s also important that they’re knowledgeable on the newest trends, designers and styles. We’re very happy to have our new friends at Lovely Bride share tips on the latest wedding trends in the below guest blog. We are so happy to have them in the Rochester market!
“Just like with ready-to-wear fashion, the bridal industry gathers twice a year at Bridal Market to see the latest and greatest offerings from all the bridal industry darlings. Happening in October and April, Bridal Market is, in essence, the fashion week of wedding-wear – and it’s just as fun as you think it would be! But, it’s also overwhelming – so many new trends and so little time or occasion to sport them! So, here at Lovely Bride, we are breaking it down to some of the top colors, silhouettes and styles that will be gracing the aisle at weddings in the months to come.
Let’s start with color, color and a little more color! Blush and pink gowns continue to be a major trend in bridal. And this season also saw the introduction of something blue! Light blue hues were evident in multiple collections, including this stunner from Carol Hannah.
We anticipate that we’ll see even more blue in April. There were also quite a few hand-painted fabrics in evidence. We think Claire La Faye did it best with her In Bloom gown.
Interesting textures are also a hot trend to look out for. Feathers, macramé and beading were all showcased. Designers went beyond lace to add interest to their creations. Hayley Paige showed this gorgeous number inspired by one of her own three bridal gowns with hand-cut flowers gracing the ball gown skirt.
It also continues to be all about the back in bridal! After all, you have to look amazing from behind as you walk down that aisle. Dramatic backs featuring illusions, lace and low cuts were shown everywhere. We couldn’t get enough of these fabulous numbers from Lea-Ann Belter and Ivy & Aster.
Lastly, for the adventure-seeking bride, there was a little wild, wild west on display at bridal market this year. Rustic ranch is another good way to describe the cowboy-inspired fashions featuring cotton lace, tiered skirts and a little bit of spunk.
