Bridal Trends from NYBFW: Color Crush

Color is becoming increasingly popular in bridal as designers cater to brides’ desire to break tradition and be themselves. While blushes and pinks have been popping up in bridal collections for a few years now, one color that is really seeing a big surge in popularity is blue! Hey, it’s perfect! If you’re gonna do the whole “Something Old, Something New” thing, why not make your “Something Blue” your wedding dress!?

More trends to come (and some of them are pretty awesome)! Is there a trend you saw on the bridal runways that you’re excited for?

Let’s Talk Trends: Two-Piece Bridal Style

Two-piece bridal gowns are one of the biggest trends being seen throughout collections this year. Designers are splitting the traditional gown into eclectic combinations of chic tops and flowing skirts. You could rock a crop top or simply find a complementing corset and skirt set. The endless options really allows every bride to create her perfect bridal look without having to create a pricey custom gown. Whatever combination she chooses, with a two-piece bridal look, each bride can be sure she will look exactly as she dreamed, with a stylish modern twist.

Who would have imagined wearing two pieces would pack as much punch as one stunning gown?! Which way would you wear two pieces on your wedding day?

Geometric Marriage

One of the newer trends being used in weddings is the theme of geometric shapes and patterns. Geometric details can take almost any shape (triangle, square, hexagonal, even irregular) and you can find ways to incorporate the theme into almost every aspect of the wedding decor. Cakes, paper, backdrops and table top decorations are just a few things that can be used to display the geometric theme. If you really want to play with angles, try splitting up a familiar shape into smaller, simpler geometric segments. Angular touches and clean lines add modernism and balanced masculinity to an event that is typically thought of as feminine, creating a look that both the bride and groom can truly appreciate.

What do you think of the geometric trend? Personally, I love the geometric, gem-inspired details at weddings. I think it adds a touch of strong, unique sweetness, which is perfect when you’re trying to make your wedding look a little less girly!

 

Chalkboard Cakes

Chalkboard touches have become incredibly popular in weddings this year. Welcome and Thank-You boards, menus, escort boards and Photo Booth backdrops are just a few versions found across events. If you want to incorporate the chalkboard look into your big day in a creative and different way, why not add a cute handwritten design to your wedding cake!

Well, I should be focusing on my final presentation, but I’ll admit I’m a bit distracted. I would so much rather be focusing on all the gorgeous wedding dresses out there. My current fascination is long sleeve dresses, so I’ve compiled a bunch of gorgeous and unique gowns with sleeves to give you an idea of how many ways long sleeves can be done!

I love how something as simple as a long-sleeve can add elegance to a gown, but it doesn’t mean that it has to be stuffy! Would you wear a long-sleeve dress on your wedding day? Which is your favorite?
