While bridal gowns are often synonymous with tradition, trends are forever dominating the fashion landscape, and our weddings are no exception. Romance is definitely in the air this bridal season and we’re absolutely loving it! As we spend more time in our homes during this new COVID time, wedding planning is back in full swing and it’s time to find The Dress. Modern bridal trends have transformed into classics before our very eyes, and we can’t wait for you to be at the forefront of this new bridal age. We have the latest dreamy creations that are taking over the runways, and we are finally ready to share them with you!
THE CORSET COMEBACK
For the lovers of a subtle dose of renaissance chic, the resurgence of corsets is the perfect combination of 19th century classic and 90’s street style. Pair the solid lines of the structured corset with sweeps of tulle and intricate lace to create an ethereal, fashion forward bridal look. Exposed boning and contoured silohouette works to highlight your natural waist and create a bridal magic moment.
The ultimate trend for our low key, classic brides; modern minimalism is an understated trend, with unexpected modern twists. Think: classic satins with daringly low backs, bursts of subtle intricate detailing and dramatic silhouettes. Crisp ivories and clean fabrics are the backbone of this trend, and it is perfect for any brides that sees the beauty in simplicity. Browse our Clean & Modern Collection for more modern minimalism!
