While nothing sparkles like a diamond, wedding fashion is the next best thing. Here at Hatton we want you to be in the know about all things engagement, and the most-important purchase (after the rings, of course) is the wedding dress.
So, if you’re deep in the midst of bridal gown indecision, let us fill you in on the biggest trends to come off the bridal runway this year. You might find something that inspires!
Dare to be Different
First off, some of this season’s styles will make your wildest of dress ideas seem tame. There couldn’t be a better time to don a unique gown – or jumpsuit, cape or jacket!
We love how much freedom this season’s designers have expressed with their clothes, showcasing some iconic and exciting twists on classic bridal looks. Whilst they say your wedding dress is a one-time-only style, pairing it with a jacket, or even moving away from a gown altogether makes that curse a little less true. Take a look at some of our favourite alternative styles showcased at this season’s bridal show. What are your thoughts?
The work of designers Monique Lhuillier, Gracy Accad and David’s Bridal.
Princess with a Twist
Of course, that also means that there’s more variety than ever – which can be a blessing and a curse. If you’re not sure about moving so far away from bridal norms, that’s absolutely fine – some of the dresses on show were so radiant, you couldn’t imagine wearing anything else.
If you’re in the market for your princess gown, maybe consider a step away from tradition and become a blushing bride. Soft pink shades were all over the catwalk and they add a gorgeous touch of vintage sparkle to the ball gown style. How gorgeous would these looks be with a rose gold diamond wedding ring?
These beautiful ball gowns are designed by Inbal Dror, Liancarlo and Lazaro.
For the Vintage Lovers
The 1950s called – they want their mid-length skirts back! This is one bridal trend that immediately shouts Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn. It’s perfect for brides wanting a classic-inspired look, and also for those wanting a subtle retro touch.
These calf-length styles are by Inbal Dror, Naeem Khan and Ivy and Aster.
Vintage jewellery picks:
Less Veils, More Hoods
Princess elegance abounds with the popular wedding capelet that was on-trend last season, only now it’s a full-scale Cinderella cape! We love the fairytale sparkle of these draped looks, and they’re just as versatile as the dresses themselves – check out our picks below.
These wonderful gowns are designed by Dennis Basso, Zuhair Murad and Allison Webb.
