When a wedding is approaching, there is lots to think about and plan. You have the guest list, catering, the location and the event itself. Weddings can take a ton of planning and can often be a generally stressful time. However, to the bride, one of the biggest things is deciding what wedding dress to go with. This is the dress you will be in during the most important day of your life, and you want it to live up to that.
Many future brides will try on many different dresses and visit numerous stores until they can find the right one for their needs. Unfortunately, many brides will experience some regret stemming from their choice of wedding dress. It is a huge choice and one you should put a lot of time and think into. Thankfully, you will have a lot of choices, as there are thousands of businesses that operate in the bridal store industry.
As with any industry, there are a lot of trends in the wedding dress space. This article is going to look at some of the latest trends when it comes to wedding dresses.
Purchasing Your Wedding Dress Online
In the past, if you wanted to buy a wedding dress, you had to go to a store or boutique. However, just as technology has pushed nearly every industry forward, it has had an impact on the wedding dress industry. It is now possible to buy high-quality wedding dresses online, and many brides are taking advantage of that.
While you may think that buying online is not as good as in store, that is no longer the case. In fact, many online retailers have great benefits and features. For example, all Azazie wedding dresses can be plus size, which is a huge benefit as many plus size women struggle to win a quality dress. Other reasons to go online is that you can easily compare various dresses from different companies from home, and many have great prices, as well.
If you think of the traditional wedding dresses, most (if not all) are white in color. While white is still a very popular color for wedding dresses, we are beginning to see more “off-white” colors being worn. Pale pinks, blues, yellows, and reds are becoming more and more popular. These can help you really pop in photos and do something unique.
In addition to off-white colors, some brides are deciding to go a completely different route and rock bold and beautiful colored wedding dresses. Depending on the season and decor of your wedding, a bright wedding dress can be a nice change of pace. Of course, this can be done wrong just as easy as it can be done right, so be careful.
An ode to traditional and royal weddings, sleeves are a great way to make an elegant statement while walking down the aisle. Whether you decide to go with transparent sleeves, slim sleeves, baggy sleeves or anything in between, the options are endless. These can create an eye-catching look and contrast, different than the silhouette of a traditional wedding dress.
In addition to sleeves, another design trend that is slowly becoming more popular again is OTS (over the shoulder) gowns. Most wedding dresses have a fairly similar design around the shoulder, but you can buck that trend completely by going with a wedding dress with an exciting and unique shoulder design. This can be a great way to have a unique and elegant dress, while also remaining subtle.
In conclusion, hopefully, this article has been able to teach you a little bit more about some of the biggest and latest trends in the wedding industry.
