Get ready to fall hopelessly in love with this season’s penchant for fabulous 3D blooms. This incredible intricate floral embellishment trend promises to set your gown apart from the rest, and leave your guests in awe as you take to the aisle. We love how this Needle & Thread Rosette gown works this trend. Plus, with the brand’s signature free-spirited, bohemian style, it’s perfect for the boho bride. We spoke to Needle & Thread’s Creative Director about the trend.
It’s All About the Back
Want to surprise your wedding guests as you walk down the aisle? Opt for a fabulously detailed or statement back. There’s nothing quite so show-stopping as a wow-factor back, and it’ll look amazing in your wedding photos too. We love the sleek style of these fabulous Caroline Castigliano bridal separates (Inspiration Top & Celyn Skirt). The look as a whole is still demure but flaunts a back design that will wow your guests. Caroline Castigliano describes the look further below.
If you’re a bride-to-be searching for something a little alternative in the wedding dress toronto department, you’ll love this season’s trend for bold, colourful floral prints. Whether you opt for an all-over design, or just a hint of a print we promise you’ll leave your guests breathless with delighted surprise. Phillipa Lepley’s Toulouse gown is everything when it comes to a floral wedding dress toronto. We spoke to the designer herself about 2017’s trend for bold, show-stopping florals.
Bows are big and they’re back this 2017. The traditional motif has returned in style for the new bridal season; think everything from big structured beauties to small, neat bow details that help tie a look together. Plus, they’re not just for the girly-bride anymore either! We love this Truly by Zac Posen for David’s Bridal gown with its structured bow back detail. Its fabulous, sleek mermaid silhouette, button details and sexy sweetheart neckline mean it’s quite the jaw-dropper! We spoke to Lori Conley, the Divisional Merchandise Manager for Bridal and Flower Girl at David’s Bridal about the design…
Capes and Toppers
This 2017 it’s all about the cape or bridal topper. Think Solange Knowles on her wedding day: that beautiful flowing cape with her chic, minimal wedding day jumpsuit. This trend is just perfect for the contemporary, fashion-forward bride who doesn’t want to follow tradition. We just adore the Leonids gown from Lusan Mandongus’ latest bridal line, and it’s an ideal example of how the cape can work wonders on your wedding day. We spoke to the brand more about the Leonid gown’s cape detail…
Coloured wedding gowns are proving to be most popular this SS17 and beyond. No longer are brides left to decide between just ivory and white. Now you can choose between everything from sumptuous blue, to powder pink and decadent gold. More often than not, these colourful wedding gowns flaunt beautiful detail too alongside their innovative hue. Think fabulous embellishment, intricate embroidery and much, much more. We absolutely love this blue bridal offering from Suzanne Neville. The designer’s ‘Rembrandt’ gown is a complete show-stopper.
If you’re a bride-to-be who likes a bit of bling, you’ll be delighted to hear that heavy embellishment is a top trend for 2017. With designers adorning everything from necklines to hemlines – not to mention gowns with fabulous embellishment all over – this is definitely the trend for you! Ian Stuart’s Glitterbomb gown is the perfect example. We love his beautifully placed jewel-embellishment that sits magnificently among the folds of material at the gown’s sweetheart neckline and waist. We spoke to the designer himself about the trend…
If texture is your thing, then drop everything and fall in love with Charlotte Casadéjus’ fabulously feathered Margot wedding dress toronto (stocked at Luella’s Bridal). Feathers are a great way to bring that touch of pure glamour to a gown, as well as beautiful movement as you take to the aisle or twirl around the dance floor. We spoke to Charlotte about her use of feathers and why she chose them to adorn this gown.
The hi-low hemline is the perfect bridal trend for the indecisive bride. If you’re struggling to decide between a short or long hemline, this fabulous shape will prove the ideal compromise (and it’s a great way to show off a pair of beautiful bridal shoes too)! This Cristallini gown (style SKA641) is the ideal example of how this trend works so well. We love how the ripples of fabric and lace overlay work to give a unique edge to the A-line silhouette. We spoke to the label’s Creative Director, Roxana Ostroveanu, further about this trend.
A higher neckline has made a return this 2017, not only in mainstream fashion trends but in bridal as well. A higher neckline is often the ideal way to balance out a statement back or an open back that shows a lot of skin. It also works extremely well with a more vintage vibe or a wedding dress toronto with long illusion sleeves. The Cressida gown by Eliza Jane Howell makes an incredible statement with its high neck, glittering illusion neckline over a sweetheart strapless look and long, shimmering sleeves. Below, the designer talks to us further about this particular look.
Long sleeves, and particularly long illusion sleeves with lace detailing, are causing a stir this 2017. Perfect for pairing with a mermaid silhouette and often, highly embellished designs, long-sleeves are back with a bang. We love this gown (Akane) by Immaculada Garcia. With the dress’ illusion, net-like sleeves, fabulous button details and jewel neckline, the sleeves and layers of material give a lovely ethereal vibe to the gown. We spoke to Immaculada Garcia about this love for longer sleeves.
The Bardot neckline has been extremely popular this 2017, both for everyday wardrobes and also the big day look. This is a great neckline for brides-to-be who don’t want to go completely strapless, but do what to show off that little bit of skin around the neck and hint at the décolletage. Naomi Neoh’s Ivy gown from her Summer’s Eve collection demonstrates this trend beautifully.
The Overskirt (wedding dress toronto)
The glamour that comes with this season’s overskirt trend is indisputable. With the added volume of the often tulle overskirt a more simple gown can instantly become a show-stopper and totally aisle-worthy. The overskirt trend is also another great one for more indecisive brides or for those who want two different looks for their big day but can only afford one gown. Wear the overskirt down the aisle and wow your wedding guests, and then detach it later for the reception and dance the night away in a more sculpted, fitted silhouette. Stephanie Allin’s Annabel gown is the perfect example of how fabulous the overskirt trend can be.
Plunging Necklines (wedding dress toronto)
We love the plunging necklines that have emerged this season. Perfect for the sassy bride, the neckline effortlessly elongates the bridal silhouette and is a great way to add a slightly sexier edge to your wedding day look. This Mikaella bridal gown, with its side slit, feminine shape and plunging neckline is quite the beauty, and we love how an illusion panel works with the neckline for that seductive, peek-a-boo twist. We spoke to Marty Bernsteinm the Founder and Designer of Mikaella Bridal about Style 2107 and the collection…
Sheer Panels (wedding dress toronto)
If you’re a bride-to-be searching for a sexier approach to a wedding dress toronto, then you’ll love this season’s sheer panels, inserts and illusion necklines and backs. Sheer panels of fabric are a great way to show off a hint of skin without displaying too much, and we adore how many designers have taken the sheer material and incorporated trailing lace embroidery across it for an ethereal approach. Ruth Milliam’s Alice and Maia gowns are great examples of how the sheer illusion trend works so well.
Tiered Skirts (wedding dress toronto)
Want to wow your guests as you walk down the aisle on the big day? Choose a tiered skirt! Be it A-line and dramatic, or a simple, more fluid shape a tiered, layered skirt can instantly bring a more playful edge to a wedding gown. We love the flirty style of this bohemian creation (Brynn) by Katya Katya Shehurina. Those tiers are just begging to be thrown around the dance floor!
Unique Lace (wedding dress toronto)
Lace will forever be a favourite with brides and designers, and we love this season’s trend for unique lace detailing. Brands take a more contemporary, fresh approach to the traditional bridal fabric and let unique, intricate designs take centre stage. Style 709 by Demetros proves how show-stopping this lace effect can be, with its detailed lace pattern and almost baroque nature.
