The new year is fast approaching, but if you've been wedding planning for awhile you've probably already been scouring the bridal magazines and webpages for wedding dress inspiration. We have too, and we've come up with seven beautiful bridal trends that are making their way into 2017.
1. Off the Shoulder
The off-the-shoulder wedding gown made its way into 2016 and is standing strong. Whether it's a long sleeve, draping tulle, or vintage lace, brides are loving the way the off-the-shoulder style highlights the delicate collarbone area and creates a semi non-traditional, but elegant look.
2. 3D Details
The spring and fall 2017 bridal catwalks were blooming with 3D details on wedding dresses, as well as on hair pieces and even the brides themselves. You can incorporate the look by adding 3D florals to your dress, like the cascading roses on the Rosalia dress seen above. For even more 3D goodness, scatter white rosettes and crystals throughout your hair.
3. High Necklines
Channel your inner Queen Victoria with a Victorian-inspired high-neckline wedding dress. Some of the necklines on the catwalk went as far as the bottom of the earlobes, creating an elongated neck and elegant lines.
4. Illusion/Sheer and Cut-outs
From illusion necklines and sheer fabrics to cut-out geometrical shapes, the buzz is all about transparency. Like the halter wedding dress pictured above, you can create texture with a lace illusion neckline and sheer overlay skirt.
5. Blush and Gold
Pink and gold is the new white. From the subtlest champagne to the boldest blush, brides are hopping on the color train. If you love the look of a soft pink or gold-hued dress, but don't want to go all the way with the color, consider a blush/gold ribbon sash to tie around your waist.
Now brides don't have to wait until the honeymoon to slip into something sexy. Corsets, lace insets, and slip-dress details were seen on 2017 wedding dresses, bringing the boudoir to the aisle.
7. Separates and Pant Suits
More and more brides are breaking away from the traditional one-piece wedding dress and creating their own look with separate tops and bottoms, convertible dresses, and pant suits. With something like the Jane style above, you can wear the tulle skirt during the ceremony, then detach to create a whole new look for the reception.
