#BuroBrides: 7 Bridal Spring 2017 trends to try for your big day
Go big or go home
For our #BuroBrides-to-be, nothing is as major as getting the right dress to exchange your vows with your partner on the biggest day of your life. But if you haven't got your wedding-gown inspo down on pat, here are seven Bridal Spring 2017 trends to take on this season for you to look utterly beautiful while keeping up with the trends:
Fluttery 3D florals
Instead of floral lace embroidery or print motifs on your gown, go the extra mile with 3D floral appliqués that flutter as you glide down the aisle. Whether it's feathery or flowery appliqués, its effect is unparallel to any other motifs we've seen out there. Spotted at Christian Siriano for Kleinfeld, Mira Zwillinger, and Marchesa.
For all our boho #BuroBrides out there, this one's for you. As unconventional as it may be, a boho-luxe wedding gown is perfect for garden and beach weddings—it likely isn't very convenient to be decked in a ballgown as you don flower crown tiaras in the middle of the woods. Go with cold-shoulder billowy sleeves and fluid, sheer dresses for the look. Spotted at Jenny Packham, Houghton and Delphine Manivet.
Yes, the quintessential AW16 women's RTW trend has transitioned to Bridal Spring 2017. A cape is a chic element that you can add on for drama. A lace version gives it a beautiful vintage look (Elizabeth Fillmore and Monique Lhuillier), or you can always go with a sheer embroidered capelet for a contemporary look (Houghton).
The memo is out: White isn't the only colour you have to wear on your big day. Spring 2017 had a plethora of coloured options that took our breaths away. Marco & Maria's cool blue gown is for Frozen fans, Naeem Khan's pink creation is made for princesses, while Carla Ruiz's floral frock is perfect for a spring ceremony.
While plunging necklines will always reign every season, we're seeing a more demure approach this Spring 2017. High necklines can give your look a polished veneer, from Temperley's tasseled, sheer look, J. Mendel's subtle take, and Angel Sanchez's frothy gown.
A modern touch
If you're looking for a pared-down aesthetic that is fuss-free and prefer to go without drama, these structured, modern gowns will float your boat. Whether it's a back bow at Carolina Herrera's, Sachin and Babi's off-shoulder, or Romona Keveza's simple gown with an asymmetrical neckline, it goes to show that you don't always need massive amounts of tulle to stand out.
Wear the pants
And of course, no Bridal trend roundup is ever complete without this unconventional trend: pulling off the pants. For some non-traditionalists who like switching things up on their big day, wear impeccably-tailored trousers that are equally as stunning. You can go with a jumpsuit a la Elie Saab, a sleeveless top and pants (Lela Rose), or even a ruffled pantsuit like Christian Siriano for Kleinfeld's version.
