Spring 2017 Bridal Trends

We just returned from New York Bridal Market and are excited about the Spring 2017 Bridal Trends!  Following are some of the standouts!

Something Blue:

For several seasons, Blush has been the key color.  This season, soft blue emerged as a color trend in bridal.  It is certainly an easy way to incorporate your ‘something blue’.

Sleeves:

Sleeves are in!  Long sleeves graced virtually every runway.  Spring and summer brides can still embrace this trend, as long as the weight of the fabrication is taken into consideration.

Pants:

Several designers showed clean and sophisticated trouser looks. We adore this look for a modern bride, a rehearsal dinner look, or even for mother of the occasion!

Designers once again took the plunge this season with necklines! We saw this trend incorporated in everything from ballgowns to fitted silhouettes.

Lace is becoming less prominent on the runways and instead we are seeing other variations in textures, including floral appliqués and Jacquards.

Clean and simple:

One of the most refreshing trends was gowns in clean fabrications like crepe, taffeta and silk shantung.  When there is no fabric interest, designers can have more fun with design details in the gown and beautiful architectural seaming.

New York Bridal Market Recap: Fall 2016 Bridesmaids Trends

We were thrilled at the assortment of bridesmaid trends seen at New York Bridal Market! Below is a recap of the Fall 2016 bridesmaids trends from stylist, and owner, Beth Chapman:

 

 

 

You have always heard that you can wear your bridesmaid dress again, but with this trend, you truly can!  These stunning beaded dresses from Donna Morgan are red carpet worthy but we are also in love with them for the white aisle!

The hot trend for maids is separates!  The options are endless! These mix and match styles create versatility for all body types and TRULY allow you to recycle the look!

One of my favorite maids collection this market was Jenny Yoo!  I just adore these soft romantic florals.  The watercolor hues were perfect on all skin types and I love  them mixed with the precious sweaters that Jenny designed!

My latest obsession is all white weddings.  There is something so romantic about it.  Several designers offered gorgeous options in shades of white.  My favorite look is when each maid is in a different white dress!

Trend Recap: New York Spring 2016 Bridal Market

We just returned from Bridal Market in New York and we’re in love with all of the current trends. Below is a recap of the Fall 2016 Bridal Market trends from stylist, and owner, Beth Chapman:

It is such an amazing time to be a bride!  There are options for all body types, venues and personal styles.  Below are the trends and some of my favorite gowns.  Look for the * gowns, as those are the ones that will be coming to The White Dress this Spring!

 

 

 

 

The off the shoulder neckline is one of my favorites! A great alternative to strapless – it is feminine and shows off the decolletage.

Last season was all about the plunging back. This season is all about taking the plunge to the front!

texture

We have seen a shift from traditional lace towards more textural fabrics. From embroidery, to appliqués, to beaded laces, this trend is ultra feminine!

In addition to elaborate embroideries and large scale florals, many designers also went very clean and simple in their silhouette.  Luxurious crepe fabrics were represented in many collections. This clean and modern aesthetic looked fresh and new!

corset bodices

 

 

 

The hot bodice trend this season is the corseted bodice.  It is a feminine lingerie inspired detail.

detachable trains

 

 

 

This trend allows brides to have two looks in one.  She can have an elaborate train for her ceremony and then remove it to reveal a more sophisticated look for her reception.  It not only allows for multiple looks, but it also considerably changes the weight of her gown so it is easy to boogie down at the reception! Designer Romona Keveza’s entire Legends collection consisted of convertible gowns with either removable trains or over skirts.

Spring 2016 Bridal Market Trends

We just arrived back from a whirlwind trip to New York for Spring 2016 Bridal Market. There were two words that best describe the overall feel of the collections – feminine and pretty. We are so excited about what our designers showed and the gorgeous options that will be arriving in the boutique later this summer! Long sleeves and ball skirts carried over from last season, and several new and exciting trends emerged.

Below is a recap of the top trends from Spring 2016 Bridal Market:

illusion_backs_and_unique_back_details

Last season, it was all about the bare, dramatic, plunging backs. This season, the options were a bit more demure with sheer skin-colored illusion backs and backs with unique feminine details.

Floral details and textures were the belle of the ball this bridal market. They graced virtually every runway. These textural options are a wonderful alternative to the traditional lace gowns that we have been seeing for so many seasons.

bridal_separates_crop_tops

This is a trend that is certainly not for every bride, but it is an interesting option nonetheless. We personally prefer this look for a shower or rehearsal dinner versus a walk down the aisle.

As Seen In: Mass Appeal – Spring 2015 Bridal Trends

Earlier this week, TWD Owner Beth Chapman appeared on WWLP’s Mass Appeal where she highlighted Spring 2015 bridal trends.

Below is a recap of Beth’s top trends:

We are seeing two extreme trends in bridal fashion right now – very classic and very non-traditional.

The neckline of the moment is the back neckline. Designers are taking the plunge with very low, very open backs, and brides are showing a lot of skin on their wedding day! The gown in the segment by designer Augusta Jones is a little more on the conservative side, as it is has illusion .

On the more conservative side, long sleeves are back en vogue! It is wonderful to have an alternative to strapless. Kayla modeled a gown from CT based designer, Modern Trousseau. It has 3/4 sleeves and a very interesting lace patterned bodice with a romantic tulle ball over skirt.

For accessories, the trend of the season is gold and rose gold. The segment features accessories by Haute Bride. We are seeing more gold and rose gold accessories emerge as an alternative to silver. They work beautifully with all of the blush tone gowns that are being shown.

Speaking to the unconventional trend, Paige modeled an adorable lace romper from Watters. Jumpsuits and rompers have become popular in ready-to-wear and now we are seeing them make their way into bridal. The romper is a great option for a civil ceremony or as a second look for a reception!  It is also a perfect choice for wedding related events, such as a shower or the rehearsal dinner.

We can’t forget bridesmaids! We are seeing two trends for the bridal party – mismatched dresses where all of the attendants are in different dresses, as well as metallics. Metallics – particularly gold – are a predominant trend in wedding decor, and now also in maids attire. The dresses in the segment include a metallic dress from Jenny Yoo, an all over beaded dress from Adrianna Papell, and a beautiful chiffon dress with a metallic lace bodice also by Jenny Yoo. The different dresses play off each other beautifully and create such a unique story.
