2017 Bridal + Bridesmaids Trends As Seen On WWLP’s Mass Appeal

 

                               

Earlier this week, TWD owner and stylist Beth Chapman appeared on WWLP’s Mass Appeal where she highlighted top 2017 bridal and bridesmaids trends. 

 

Spring 2017 Bridal Trends 

This Spring is all about femininity!  Florals, feminine details and flowy fabrics are hot right now in bridal!  Below are the top bridal trends for Spring 2017: 

Flowy skirts  –   Silhouettes are getting softer for Spring and we are seeing lots of flowy skirts being shown by designers.  This gown by Anne Barge has a long sleeve lace bodice with a plunging v-neck.  Sleeves are appropriate for spring and summer, as long as the fabric weight is light enough.

Jacquards and textured fabrics– Last season we talked about watercolor prints being a trend (and that continues). This season, designers are showing floral patterns embossed into the fabric with Jacquards and burnouts.  This one from Jenny Yoo is in a soft flowy fabric and just screams spring.  It is perfect for a garden wedding!

3 dimensional textures-  Designers are taking this floral trend one step further and showing gowns with 3 dimensional flowers.  This one is from Carolina Herrera

Textural laces –  We have seen lace for several seasons- it has really become a staple in bridal.  Designers are using more unique textured laces, like this one from Made with Love.  This lace is similar to a Guipure lace, which is a crocheted lace.  This gown has a plunging v neckline, which continues to be a hot trend. 

Capes- We have seen capes on the red carpet and now they are making their way down the white aisle. I love this as an alternative to a veil!  It is such a sophisticated and elegant look! The one below is from Augusta Jones.

Billowy sleeves – Last season was all about the long sleeve. This season those sleeves have a little twist with the introduction of the billowy sleeve. I adore the Winnie gown from Hayley Paige – I think this type of sleeve has more of a spring-like airy feel!  Sleeves are totally appropriate for spring if they are in a lightweight fabric such as tulle or organza.

Spring 2017 Bridesmaid Trends 

It is a great time to be a bridesmaid.  There are so many great trends – and the best trend is not look like a bridesmaid!  It is still all about mixing different silhouettes, pattern, and textures within the same bridal party. There are some exciting silhouette trends happening for Spring 2017:

Interesting necklines-  it’s all about NON-STRAPLESS dresses! Designers are showing all kinds of interesting necklines that flatter all different body types. This one is from Theia

Off the shoulder is currently a hot in ready to wear and we are also seeing that trend for bridesmaids.  It is a very romantic silhouette and provides coverage at the top of the arms, which most women appreciate! Below is a style from Amsale.

Flutter sleeves-  This is a  very romantic trend an a great option for a maid who wants more arm coverage.

Long sleeves–  We are seeing a lot of long sleeve gowns in bridal and the trend has also emerged for maids.  It is a very chic, sophisticated look.  It is one that would also work for a young mom!

Embroidery/floral patterns–  Last season we talked a lot about prints and mixing them in a bridal party with corresponding solid colors and even lace. This season, bridesmaid designers are combing the floral trend with the trends we are seeing in bridal toward texture, and showing floral embroidery.

Jumpsuits! – Again, this is a trend that we have seen evolve from every day fashion into the bridal realm.  How fun would this be to wear as a bridesmaid?!  We also love this look for the bride for all of her wedding-related events.

Elegant & dramatic Black tie affair at Blithewold featuring Carolina Herrera Ansel

We were so thrilled to find our elegant and dramatic styled shoot at Blithewold featured in this year’s issue of Bliss Celebrations. Blithewold Mansion has a stately feel to it which called for a classic and elegant gown. TWD Owner and Stylist Beth Chapman selected Carolina Herrera’s Ansel gown, since the silk striped skirt provided a New England vibe and the beaded neckline made it perfect for a black tie affair. The gown really served as the main inspiration for the entire shoot.  She also had a vision for a reception dress with feathers, and JLM Couture delivered with a gorgeous, flirty dress (a runway sample, which {sadly} never got produced!) Scroll down for all of the pretty as well as the amazing vendors who made the shoot a success.
