Every bride envisions a perfect wedding day. But this does not come without a lot of preparation and a lot of saved photos and inspiration from the internet. And while an organizer can arrange all of these, searching for the perfect wedding dress is the bride’s task.
Choosing a wedding dress can be a bit overwhelming especially if you’ve already started looking at various bridal sites online. But if you know your body type and you know what works for you then you don’t have to worry about a thing. Here are a few wedding dress styles that you should consider if you’re getting hitched this year.
The trends for 2017 involve baring a little more skin and going against tradition. There are also designs that go back to being minimalist and effortless, as well as those that add a modern spin to classic look.
Plunging necklines are still a huge trend and offer just the right amount of exposure. You can go for deep v-neck styles especially if you’re not the busty type. These also make you look sensual on your big day. Off-the-shoulder styles are also becoming common and can be seen in simple gowns as well as in the elaborate ones.
While a lot of brides have chosen simple gowns, they accentuate the dress by wearing stylish toppers such as capelets, bomber jackets, ponchos, and boleros. Accessories are also big this year with big, bold earrings and hair accessories as well as modern day tiaras being worn by a lot of brides.
Oversized bows are back as accents and can be seen as a back or waist detail, on belts, sleeves, and even attached to jewelry. When it comes to skirts, cascading ruffles, feathers, and fully tiered skirts are emerging trends. The shoulders have also been given much attention. You can see styles that have flutter sleeves as well as bishop sleeves. Long sleeves are still a classic and elegant design, especially when adorned with lace.
Feather accents are in style. These can be seen embellished on shoulders, capes, wrist cuffs, and necklines.
When it comes to colors, a lot of brides have chosen to break tradition and go for a different color other than white, off white, cream or ivory. Pantone’s colors of the year, rose quartz and serenity, have been seen in bridal gowns. These are soft colors that add a romantic feel to your dress. So if you’re not feeling great in white, turn to these colors.
There are a lot of wedding dress styles for every body type. You might also want to view the collection at Terani Couture and see the wedding dresses they have to offer. Just be sure that when you try on that dress, you feel good about it, you look good in it, and that you’re flattering the right areas of your body. After all, it is your big day.
