Wedding Wednesday | Bridal Week Trends


Bridal week has come and gone and everyone is better for it. Lucky 2016 brides will have no shortage of inspiration and gowns galore that will make you say 'I do'! Here are some trends to keep an eye out for during your hunt for THE dress. 

CLASSICALLY NUDE

Grandma won't be mad about you going nude on your big day with this Reem Acra number. Shades of nude flatter almost every skin tone, and looks exceptionally elegant against a big white bouquet. For added 'wow's, adorn with 3D flowers or intricate applique . 

SHORT + SWEET SLEEVES

Here's to hoping short sleeves become a lasting bridal trend the way pockets have. They say "hey, I'm here to look elegant but I also want my shoulders to be slightly warmer". Sleeves are absolutely adorable and just give you another excuse to try out that stellar illusion neckline dress you've been creeping on.

THE PANTSUIT

I feel like we all owe Amal Clooney a big hug for this trend. 2016 will be a big year for the pantsuit and dress shunners alike! 

FLORAL PRINTS (BECAUSE IT'S GROUNDBREAKING)

This bride proves that you can go way left field with your gown choice and still maintain chic bridal status. If you're looking for a statement dress to wow your loved ones, set your sights on some new and amazing pieces by Houghton, Theia, and Naeem Khan. 

BIG BALLROOM SKIRTS

Southern belles rejoice! Ballroom gowns are back and they're more glamorous than you could imagine. 


Wedding Wednesday | Mix + Match Bridesmaids Dresses


Long gone are the days of hideous bridesmaid dresses! Today, brides are opting for stylish and re-wearable options for their ladies in waiting. One trend we can't get enough of is the mix + match bridesmaid ensemble. Now you can add more color, tones, and style to your wedding without hiring a personal stylist or breaking the bank, and your chic maids will be thankful they can choose a dress style or neckline that's most flattering on their personal shape.
