It’s a Fairy-Tale Summer
If you’re a lover of whimsical wedding dresses, you’ll love what’s trending for summer 2017/2018. What we love is that the summer styles have a cheeky edge – red, believe it or not, is hot, hot, hot! According to elle.co.za, designer Vera Wang is leading the red revolution, revealing a bride in every shade of red, from bright scarlet, to deep burgundy – not a hint of white in sight.
The trend also leans towards daring and sexy, yet delicate, with florals definitely taking centre stage. By the looks of it, the leading designers are all for brides having their bouquets embroidered on their wedding dresses! We think it’s a delightful touch.
For the ultimate fairy-tale bride, full tulle multi-layered ballroom skirts are very popular, complemented by a bodice with intricate beadwork. Still hugely popular this summer is plunging necklines, and illusion backs and necklines.
Our Angelina wedding dress ticks all of these boxes. It is one of our most gorgeous ballroom wedding dresses with delicately beaded straps and a stunning illusion back. Created out of lace and tulle, and available in ivory/ivory or ivory/blush, this is a real showstopper.
For brides who love satin, our Alexia wedding dress, from our Modeca collection, is probably one of the most luxurious. It’s fit for a princess – sleek and stylish with a plunging V-neckline, which is nothing short of breathtaking!
As we said, whimsical wedding dresses are still a major trend. A definite favourite in our collection of whimsical styles is the Haiko dress from our La Sposa collection. The structured bodice on this empire-waist wedding dress, created from a combination of Chantilly lace and the highest quality guipure, flows exquisitely into a soft chiffon skirt. Playful and alluring, it remains one of our most sought-after dresses.
So, we’ve whizzed through what’s hot this season, and yes, we’re excited! Remember though that trends are just that – trends. It doesn’t mean you have to follow them.
Always be true to your own personal style and your personality when looking at wedding dresses.
If you want to look back on your wedding album in 20 years and still love your wedding dress, here’s some good advice on choosing a dress:
- Pay attention to detail. Don’t ignore small things about the style or fit that don’t seem right.
- Be inspired by trends and celebrity wedding dresses, but remember that what looks good on someone else may not necessarily be the perfect dress for you. Don’t follow trends blindly – especially colour trends!
- Always choose the right style for your body type. A professional bridal consultant with expert knowledge of wedding dresses can help you determine your body type, and then narrow your choices down to styles that will complement your figure.
- Traditional fabrics like lace, silk, and organza are the essence of classic chic, and add a special touch to wedding dresses, which is timeless.
