Bridal Gowns That Keep Up With Johannesburg Trends

When thinking of fashion in South Africa, many people point to Cape Town with pride, but forget her budding sister, the beautiful city of Johannesburg. This year, in fact, South African Fashion Week (SAFW) took place in Sandton, Johannesburg. Another celebration of all things vogue is Soweto Fashion Week, which gave us a look at new and upcoming designers. Johannesburg is definitely populated by some fashionable people. Below we have compiled a list of some of the most gorgeous trends for bridal gowns that our Johannesburg brides love.

Loud and Proud Colours

Embracing all that is bold and bright, Johannesburg brides are moving away from crisp, white bridal gowns and making use of stark contrasts, such as red, ultra-violet, or even hot pink. We have seen a rise in soft petal pinks, dusty lavenders, champagnes, serenity blues, and even light celadon greens.

Baring Some Skin

Backless bridal gowns, plunging necklines, and nearly-naked impressions are gracing weddings all over the country, and nothing seems off limits for our brave South African brides. Sensual and seductive, this is one trend that we can’t get enough of.

Statement Veils

Fresh from the Royal wedding, statement veils are featuring this season. Simple, understated bridal gowns are taken to the next level with veils that leave a legacy. Fringes, beads, pearls, and appliqué can take a plain veil from drab to dazzling.

Enthralling Embellishments

Nothing is more delicate and romantic than white or nude tulle embellished with intricate detail. Floral lace, embroidery, or beautiful beads are enough to make any Johannesburg bride feel like her wedding day is a fairy tale.

Timeless and Traditional

Certain themes never go out of style, one of them being the “traditional” wedding look. This season, in contrast to plunging necklines, we also see high necklines, long sleeves, and even a comeback of the vintage gigot style bridal gown. These feminine, classic looks are already cemented in the bridal hall of fame and will forever be, in some form or another, trending.

Hair Accessories

A rose gold hair accessory is a statement piece that can be used in a number of ways. Classic hair combs with floral detailing are ideal for vintage-loving or boho brides, while hair vines can turn a wedding dress into a fairy tale straight out of a fantasy novel. Hairpins and clips create a dainty, exquisite appearance for those demure brides who still want to add some allure to their bridal attire.
