Top 2017 Wedding Trends, to Look Fabulous on Your Special Day

It’s that big moment when the door opens and your husband-to-be’s heart skips a beat when he sees you walking down the aisle.
Every bride wants that ‘WOW moment’ and there are so many different styles out there to choose from! As always, be true to yourself – it’s your big day so be comfortable and confident in what you are wearing.

With a little bit of help from our friends at Raffaele Ciuca, we are showing you the 7 big trends to look out for in 2017.

All about the sleeves

 Oh, so many options! Sleeves have definitely been a big trend ever since Kate married William in that swoonworthy gown! But we are seeing lots of different interpretations of “sleeves”. A gown with sleeves can be a great option for someone that doesn’t want to show off too much arm – little caps or off the shoulder options with embellishments can give you a bit of coverage while remaining cool if you are going for a summer wedding. Or if you are having a fall or winter wedding you may prefer to go for long sleeves which can have beautiful lace work and detailing. The fabric, length, and style of the sleeves will certainly vary from dress to dress, so you’ll have plenty of options to choose from.

Chic Capes or detachable skirts

These looks have been big on the catwalk, and now they have made their way into the line-up for wedding gowns too. They will look stunning for  all of your photography, and then if you are going to hit the dance floor during the reception you can detach the skirt or cape to give you more movement and freedom.

Bling bling

Not just your engagement ring has to sparkle on your wedding day! Beautiful beading and embellishments are definitely a big trend – whether just on the bodice or throughout the whole gown, it can definitely make you feel like a princess for the day.

Lace

Because who can argue with tradition. Whether you go for a vintage gown or a stunning new design, you can never go wrong with lace. There are new twists on lace detailing as well as gorgeous designs that through you back to another time. A classic look which will never go out of fashion.

Go big

Ruffles galore. Make a statement with a big gown. Stunning in your photos and a big hit on the dancefloor.

Figure-hugging

Show off your curves in a figure-hugging number. Designs come in sleek satin or beautiful lace and beading. There are heaps of options and you can show off all your assets!

Backless

Wow people from the front and the back! From plunging to open & cut-out, there are lots of designs that focus on the back of your dress. With so many options you can find the right fit for you that can make a statement but keep you comfortable too.

So there you have it – so many options for you to consider!
