Bridal Trends of Spring 2017

We’re finally shoveling our way out of the dreaded winter season, which means wedding season is upon us. Yes! It’s time to dust off your trusty wedding planner, re-open that Pinterest wedding board, and get to work on planning the most spectacular spring wedding of the season. But before you hit the drawing board, let’s take a look at these new bridal trends.

 

Boho Chic for the Boho Chick

28396B

Think Coachella meets New York Fashion Week – just with less cheesy floral headbands (it’s a love-hate thing). Seriously though, island vibes are taking over the runway this season in every form imaginable. Famous designers like Oscar de la Renta and Elizabeth Fillmore are creating Boho couture, with bell-sleeved chiffon and pleated tulle.

Cascading Bohemian dresses are falling effortlessly on brides everywhere, and makes us wish we were having a destination wedding every week so we could have an excuse to wear these gorgeous things. Want to channel your inner Californian chick? Try this bangle bracelet by Gottlieb & Sons!

 

Veils – Go Big or Go Home

We went from no veils at all to veils...on veils…on veils. This season we’re looking at BIG, voluminous, hit-people-when-you-walk-by veils. These things are literally massive and they are taking over the runway and the wedding aisle this season as brides swoon over lace embroidered veils to ornate, extremely tulle veils. Pick that special one and you’ll have a lot of trouble parting with it after the wedding-- sorry, nothing can be borrowed here!

 

Floral and Fab

Blossoming brides are all about the floral accents this season, whether its flower patterned lace or having the dress gather into a beautiful rose. Pastel colors are even taking over the scene, with floral beadwork and sexy embellishments that’ll make your wedding feel more like a garden party.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with bloomy accents either. We’re seeing brides go for floral engagement rings like this one from Gottlieb & Sons.

 

No need for Cold Shoulders

29246B

Last year was all about the strapless dresses, and to be honest we are a little sick of seeing sweetheart necklines everywhere. Spring is a time for growth and change, and that’s exactly what we’re seeing on bridal gowns this year. Bold shoulders are on trend for 2017, with artistically sculpted sleeve caps and broad shoulder details that kind of resemble shoulder pads.

There’s something powerful about them, and we love how they frame a bride’s face and neck. This dainty diamond pendant by Gottlieb & Sons will add some softness to a heavier neckline.

 

The Bigger the Bow the Better

Big sleeves aren’t the only thing on trend for this Spring-- oversized bows also hit the runway with a bang! They’re adding a little more glam and a LOT more drama. Large bows are seen tied perfectly around a bride’s waist, or even on the back of her gown. There’s really no wrong way to rock a bow this wedding season, so go ahead and doll up.

 

With the bows, puff sleeves and florals-- just be careful not to get too carried away by your girlish tastes. You don’t want to feel like a decorated cream puff! The look should be a subtle nod to the Disney princess, while still maintaining an overall modern vibe.

Modern Bridal Trends for Today’s Trendsetters

Wedding bells are ringing! You’ve planned the theme, proposed to your bridal party, you’ve got the dress, and now it’s time to add the finishing touch: Jewelry! As a trendy bride, there’s no time for second guessing your bridal accessories or leaving your bling shopping to the last minute-- even if you’re a procrastinating bridezilla!

Here are some great wedding accessories for the trendiest of brides: 

 

High Neckline

1

Break up this traditionally feminine look with some modern hoop diamond earrings. Perfect for brides who love keeping it classy, but still crave some flavor, these earrings create a memorable way to add some fire to your flair. So, channel your inner Grace Kelly (with a dash of Kardashian) as you walk down the aisle. When it comes to fashion, who says you need to choose sides?

Up-Do Hairstyle

2

An up-do hairstyle leaves tons of room for creativity with your glitz-- yes! 

29129B

It calls for statement earrings and depending on your dress neckline and style, you might be able to pull off a statement necklace as well. There’s no better time to shine! If you love being a centerpiece of blinding sparkles, Gottlieb & Sons has you covered-- from head to decolette.

Bracelets

 

When the photographer zooms in on that bouquet, you’ll want to be prepared. 

28194B

Give the camera an eye-full with a breathtaking bracelet. Depending on the style of your dress, you can either play up the glamor with a chunky cuff bracelet or keep it subtle yet elegant with a beautiful diamond bracelet.

27588B

Just try not to overdo it and make your hand appear cluttered.  Don’t make the bridal faux pas of trying to look like a diamond-draped princess, but ending up like an indecisive bling addict.

 

Blush Dress

3

As every trendy bride knows, blush or peachy toned wedding gowns are very in for the Spring wedding season and look great on all skin tones. But accessorizing this color may be a bit more of a challenge. This feminine style calls for even more feminine jewelry. 

28036B

Opt for pretty and elegant pearls or tear drop clusters, try them in a beautiful rose-gold color and look pretty in pink.

 

Something Blue

4

For “something blue” in your wedding attire, consider a large cocktail ring like this gem by Gottlieb & Sons.

29005B

A cocktail ring will add a special touch to accent a dress that has texture or is surfaced with lace or detailed embroidery. If your dress lacks shimmer, a large cocktail ring will do the job and give it some edge. Basically, it offers a truckload of oomph to ensure you’re not a basic B (bride).

 

 

On a day that is always linked to classic beauty and tradition, how often do brides ever get the chance to wear something truly trendsetting? On the day where all eyes are on you, let your fashion conscience be your guide. Good luck to all of you beautiful brides to be!
