Spring 2017 Bridal Trends

Happy March 1st Friends! 

We are so excited to have the wonderful Alyssa Doorhy, a fashion expert and the owner of CoChic Styling, a Chicago-based wardrobe styling company, on the blog today giving us a look at what to expect in terms of Spring 2017 bridal trends. My favorite is definitely the cape dresses. 

CoChic Styling helps people find their personal style through personal shopping, closet clean outs and wedding wardrobe styling. Alyssa loves to help people feel like the best version of themselves, from every day to their wedding day.

If you love a non-traditional bridal gown look, this spring 2017’s bridal trends are for you! Even if you tend to lean more traditional, some of this spring’s trends can be easily incorporated into your bridal look. Here are my top four favorites of the season:

Feathers

When you hear feathers, you might be a little hesitant, but we’re not talking 1920’s feather boas or anything. Designers have done a beautiful job tastefully incorporating wispy feathers, to add texture and whimsy to their bridal designs for spring. You might consider feathers if you’re getting married in a sleek, modern venue.

Capes

You’ve probably seen that capes have had a resurgence in ready-to-wear, and now they’re popping up in bridal! Bridal designers have incorporated delicate bridal capes in their spring gown designs for some added drama. Why not feel like a superhero on your wedding day?

Pastel Colors

The past couple of years we’ve seen bridal gowns in blush and nude shades, but this spring, we’re seeing even more beautiful colors for brides. Various shades of green, blue and pink were most prevalent on the runways. Consider a colored gown if you are a non-traditional bride who wants something unique.

Pants

That’s right, fancy pants are making their way into the bridal scene. Whether you want to go with a jumpsuit or a pantsuit, designers have made them available to you. This trend is perfect for a bride who never wears dresses, and never wants to, or for an unexpected “wow” factor for guests.
