5 Bridal Trends We’re Loving Right Now

If you’re newly engaged, we’re guessing you’re ready to get to the good stuff.

We already know ‘tis the season for engagements. And what’s the first thing any bride to be (or just regular girl who likes the sparkly stuff) wants to do on a quiet Sunday afternoon? Look at dresses, obviously.

Whether you’re just starting your search and you *think* you want, or you have literally no idea and feel totally overwhelmed and a little stressed out, we’ve got you. Here are five of our favorite dresses from the Spring/Summer ‘17 bridal shows that perfectly represent five of our favorite bridal trends.

 

1. Sheer Off-The-Shoulder Sleeves

This Vera Wang gown makes us feel a little woozy it’s so pretty. We love the drapey off-the-shoulder details and the sheer sleeves are just so romantic and pretty.

 

2. High Neck Racerback

While there doesn’t seem to be anything at all sporty about this Mira Zwillinger beaded gown, the high neck shape definitely feels a bit...athletic. In the chicest way possible. This shape would be insanely flattering on pretty much anyone, but especially on a smaller bust.

 

3. Cape Details

It’s hard to see here, but this Caroline Hayden gown has an incredible cape. We love that it comes out of the dress, rather than from the neck or shoulders, keeping it from looking too superhero. We’re also nuts for the sleek, unembellished front of the dress, and its classic column shape.

 

4. Tea-Length

We love anything Delpozo does, but the Spanish house’s bridal collection is especially dreamy. A tea-length dress is definitely different, but the structure of this one keeps it from being too costumey or ‘50s.

 

5. Blush Colors

Just a *hint* of color totally works with this ornate, romantic Marchesa gown. Blush is super flattering on most skintones, and when worn with a classic, princessy lace veil it looks distinctly bridal, despite not being bone-white.
