This season designers are reinterpreting bridal looks in new, vintage-inspired, and completely unexpected ways. As the Bridal Fashion Week started unfolding, the runways saw gorgeous Fall Collections from designers like Oscar de la Renta, Lela Rose, Monique Lhuillier, Carolina Herrera, Elie Saab and Reem Acra, just to name a few of my favorites.
While white is still a favorite, it is no longer a must when it comes to a wedding dress. Off-White, ivory, cream, champagne are the familiar choices, but with pink, gold and light blue coming strongly from behind, there's more than just the right color when finding the perfect wedding dress.
2. Black Accents
A surprising trend! This high-contrast detail is an easy way to add interest to any white dress. From black ribbons, gloves, belts, hairpieces, and other accessories, the sky is the limit on how brides can accessorize by incorporating this unexpected style.
3. Oversized bows
Turn an ordinary wedding dress into something out of the ordinary with an extra large bow and add chic simplicity with mass appeal.
Now you can stay comfy on your wedding day without missing the mark, and even wear those pants that you love so much. Pantsuits, jumpsuits, and even elegantly tailored pants adorned with giant bows were all over the runways.
Veils are getting an update with ingenious styling tricks. Embellished with a sparkly brooch and wrapped around the neck like a necklace, worn across the shoulders like a modern shawl, or attached to the back of your dress in a flowing display are new ways of wearing veils.
6. 3D Florals
Use flowers to get graphic in the sweetest way possible. Three-dimensional embellishments add texture to a plain white dress, and ensure a clean yet unforgettable style.
Gloves are a classic, yet rarely used accessory in association with a wedding gown. Try a classic satin pair, or modernize it with a dainty wrist-length style.
8. Extreme Sleeves
Softly ruffled cap sleeves, long sleeves, wide sleeves and cut-out shoulders bring a feminine (and flattering) flair, and add movement while blowing gently in the wind.
9. Capes and Capelets
Short, cropped, or full length, they not only look good, but also add that extra “something” that transforms an ordinary dress into a distinctive gown. And for the bride who’s always cold, it’s got you “covered”.
10. Victorian Elegance
The fashion of the Victorian era marks femininity at its finest with flounces, ruffles, and intricate lacework and it is brought back in modern ways by designers like Luisa Beccaria, Vera Wang and Galia Lahav.
11. Non-Traditional Jewelry
And last but not least, throw the traditional out the window and go for a bold shoulder necklace that can complete your bridal look in more ways than one.
