2017 Bridal Fashion Trend Report by Luella’s Bridal – Part One

We have been super busy at Luella’s Bridal HQ putting together this ultimate guide to bridal fashion for 2017. Taking inspiration from both bridal and mainstream fashion, we have covered all of the key trends for this season, giving you lots of ideas on how to create each look; with everything from gorgeous dresses, beautiful shoes and accessories, to loads of great hair and makeup suggestions.

This season is all about keeping things looking a bit more glam, and even bohemian style dresses, have had a bit of a fashion update. Brides are prepared to be a bit more daring and we are seeing the introduction of more crop top style two pieces, trouser suits and sexier silhouettes. The cold shoulder, is a key trend for this year and there is a real mixture of big princess style dresses and sleeker more minimalist styles. So whether you are a relaxed boho bride, a modern day diva, a minimalist low key dresser, a paradise perfectionist or a timeless romantic this guide should help you find your perfect bridal style.

– BOHOLUXE –

This style is all about relaxed beach/festival style dressing. Think gypsy dresses, messy hair styles and barefoot dressing.

Key Trends & Dress Styles
We have chosen a selection of stunning bohemian style dresses and tops and skirts with 70’s style billowing sleeves, beautiful rustic style embroidered fabrics, unique hand beaded detailing, crochet lace, tiers and tassels.

Accessories and Shoes
We suggest styling this look with a pair of low heeled strappy sandals or wedges. For the more daring amongst you, you could always try adding a pair of cowboy boots or even going barefoot. We chose to style our looks with a number of accessories including; layers of long necklaces made from shells, gemstones, and dream catcher style charms. We chose a mixture of gold and pearl bangles, handmade crochet cuffs and a selection of earrings including; feathers, hoops and rustic style beaded chandeliers. We also used a crochet ribbon hair tie and a bespoke gold, pearl and crystal hair vine and created our own ribbon necklace and anklet, for a simple, unique twist.

Hair and Makeup
Smokey eyes, softly bronzed cheeks and a mixture of soft nude lip colours gives this style a cool, natural look. The models own afro style hair works well with our selection of gorgeous hair ties and we chose to include two of this years key bridal hair trends, plaits and the double bun.

– PARADISE –

This style is all about adding some intrigue to your look. It’s more glamorous than the boho look and has a much more exotic feel. Think sexier styles of dresses, floral accents and mysterious looking makeup and hair combos.

Key Trends & Dress Styles
We have chosen a selection of super sexy dresses; with low backs, splits, sheer overlay skirts, off the shoulder designs and tight fitting silhouettes. We have also chosen styles with floral elements to re emphasise the desert island feel.

We have carried the floral theme through to the accessories by using a selection of exotic style flowers in the hair. We also tried to stick to a tropical colour pallet by injecting hints of bright yellow and hot pink. We continued the theme of gold shoes, selecting a thin strappy style with an ankle strap enhancing the sexier style of this look.

Hair and Makeup
For this look, we chose a really glamorous beehive hairstyle to add to the exotic feel and emphasise the cold shoulder style of the dress. We chose dark, smokey eyes, glowing dewy skin and soft nude colours for the lips.

I was inspired to open Luella's Bridal following my own wedding in 2005. With a busy career, very little time to visit lots of wedding shops and seven bridesmaids to dress, I longed for a place where I could view everything we needed at the same time. Today Luella's strives to offer brides an incredible, assortment of truly individual items and we continue to ensure that we are offering an exclusive selection of beautiful wedding gowns, bridesmaids dresses and accessories that have been meticulously sourced from all over the world.
