Latest Trends in Wedding Dresses

Created Date: 2017-05-02

A detailed account of the latest trends in wedding dresses for 2017 including examples.

While traditional white dresses will never go out of style, today’s wedding dress trends are pushing the envelope. From sheer overlays to pops of color, the 2017 trends for wedding dresses are daring, flattering, and anything but boring.

Here are some of the latest trends in wedding dresses you should look out for.

Sheers and lace

There’s nothing new about using lace in a wedding gown, the surprise today is how it’s used. Form-fitting dresses with sheer sleeves or a lace overlay are the perfect way to show a little skin while maintaining formal elegance.

This wedding dress from Pronovias Barcelona combines traditional floral lace over a long, flowing column for a sleek look. The sheer sleeves and lace neckline detail are a gorgeous way to draw attention to the bride’s face.

In contrast, this wedding dress from Wtoo uses a more modern lace design and has a tan underlay for a nude illusion. This is definitely a dress for the bride who wants to stand out! 

Art Deco beading

The surging popularity of period dramas has inspired a host of vintage designs. While giant puffy sleeves won’t be making a comeback anytime soon, 2017 was the year of intricate beading and 3D details. One of the more wearable looks is the 1920s inspired Art Deco beading.

One of our favorite looks in this style is this Great Gatsby-inspired wedding dress from Val Stefani. The diagonal lines of beading are flattering on just about any body type, providing an elegance and glamor reminiscent of a bygone era.

Accessorizing this trend is easy; simply look for vintage-inspired clutches, headbands, and gloves.

Colors galore

While a big white dress is the dream of most little girls, today’s brides are going with color. In 2017, bridal runways saw dresses in a host of different colors, from pale pinks to deep reds to black. That may be a bit extreme for you, but you can still stay on-trend with hints of color.

A pale dress with a darker lace overlay looks chic and modern while retaining the sophistication of a traditional wedding dress. This gown from Moonlight Couture combines a classic bridal silhouette with an updated color scheme for a look that is elegant and new at the same time.

These three are the biggest trends to look for in 2017 wedding dresses. Of course, previous looks that are both fresh and sophisticated always endure. Shorter lengths, sleek columns, and ballerina-inspired shapes aren't going anywhere just yet.
