Twice a year, the Solutions Bridal team and a photographer attend Bridal Fashion Week in New York. This trip, photographers, Kristen Weaver and Lacey with Kristen Weaver Photography joined us. Kristen and Lacey captured the moments while Tali, Roberta, and Jamie admired the collections and bought gowns and accessories for Solutions Bridal. Each season, designers create new gowns and pieces that are classic and trend setting. Many of these trends have been seen before, yet are taken to a new level. Trends that were shown down designer runways were color, bows, texture, veils and body veils, and clean silhouettes. To see more behind the scenes photos from Bridal Fashion Week, click here.
Wedding Gowns with Color
Colored wedding gowns are a beautiful and unique bridal trend that is perfect for the non-traditional bride or the one-of-a-kind bride. Popular wedding gown color options are blush, red, and blue. Though the runway designer samples are shown in color, the designers do have classic alternative options to order the gown in ivory. These gowns are also a great option for the mother of the bride or mother of the groom gowns.
Wedding Gowns with Texture
The texture on wedding gowns is a fun trend that is shown by many designers. There can be a variety of ways designers create texture on their wedding gowns. For example, beading, layers of lace, or silk organza flowers are all forms of texture. No matter what the style or silhouette of the gown, texture can be seen. The texture on wedding gowns shows up very nicely in a bride’s wedding photos. The dimension adds a fun detail that keeps gowns traditional yet trendy.
Veils and Body Veils
Bridal body veils made a big comeback in the Spring 2018 collections. Staying fashion-forward yet comfortable, the body veils can be made detachable. Designers created the body veils with lace, fluid silks, and silk tulle paired with beading. Brides love the body veils as an alternative to a traditional veil because it elevates their wedding day look, yet it is not too traditional. Brides can get creative with styling their wedding gown with the body veils. Fior example, any classic clean gown can be paired with a body veil.
Bows on Wedding Gowns
Bows are a detail that will never go out of style. Whether a bow is a major or minor detail on a wedding gown, brides love the feminine design. This timeless detail was seen in a variety of fits and styles of wedding gowns during bridal fashion week. To celebrate Reem Acra’s 20 years of design, she partnered up with Tiffany & Co. for bridal fashion week. Staying true to Tiffany’s brand, Reem added an array of bows to her collection. If a bride loves a gown, but bows aren’t her style, she can have the bow removed. However, if a bride loves the bow detail, she can add a bow to her wedding gown.
Clean and Fluid Silhouettes
Clean and fluid silhouettes will never go out of style. These gowns are timeless and sexy because of their understated feel and design. Brides from all ages and sizes look amazing in this style of gown because they are timeless. Designers create clean and fluid silhouettes with fabrics including silk crepe, silk mikado, silk charmeuse, and french lace.
