The 2017 Bridal Trend Edit


August 23, 2016

With the wedding dress shopping season getting under way we get you inspired with our roundup of some of the hottest bridal trends emerging for the 2017 bride.

Trend #1: Off The Shoulder

We've seen this gorgeous girly trend lots on the high street and now it's catching on in the bridal world. There’s something really glamorous and red carpet-esque about baring your shoulders and it can be quite a daring look for some brides. We love a bride who takes a risk though! Dress by Watters

Trend #2: 3D Florals

This beauty of a botanical trend shows no signs of stopping and we're absolutely in love with it. This pale green and floral embellished creation by Jenny Packham is super gorgeous and definitely on our lust list.

Trend #3: Cut Outs

Fashion influences bridal again with the ultra modern and super elegant way to reveal a little more flesh on your big day. Cutouts have been big news on the high street for a while and it’s one of those trends that doesn’t transfer easily to bridal. Proceed with caution and choose something that shows just a hint of skin. We’re loving this wedding dress by Suzanne Neville as the perfect example of how to do it well.

Trend #4: High Low Hem

This can go as high or low as you like but this is definitely one for the shoe lovers. Wedding dress by Riki Dalal

Trend #5: Separates

One of our favourite trends for next season this encapsulates femininity and modernity - definitely one for the cool bride. It was done before in the 90s but this is a trend we think is here to stay. Perhaps you love the top of one dress and the bottom of the other? Well this is the perfect solution! Try this beaut example of separates done exceptionally well by our fave Needle & Thread

Trend #6: Colour

From the subtle gold and blush tones of last season we see colours go bolder with light blues and silvers too. All we could say when we saw this wedding dress by Chantelle Lauren was ‘wow’. If you’re anything like us you probably can’t believe how a blue wedding dress can look this good! This trend is not for the faint-hearted but we say go for it.
