2017 Trends For The Blushing Bride
If you’re planning a wedding this year, you’re sure to be inundated with a wide array of fashion and beauty trends. Your wedding day is supposed to be about you and your fiancé taking the plunge and all eyes will be focused on you both as you say I do. Explore the trends of the year to find the looks that you want so you can achieve that perfect bridal image you have painted in your mind.
This year has brought an array of options for bridal gowns. Both modern and traditional had their place on designer runways as they premiered their styles for the year. Whether you’re looking to show some skin or head-to-toe lace, there are designs that will appeal to all types.
Everything from plunging necklines and revealing open backs offer a sexy flash of skin. If you’re looking for a little more cover, invisible necklines offer a touch of lace without too much modesty. If you have a flair for the dramatic, trade in the veil for the cape, which is available in everything from shoulder length to hooded with a full-length train. Faint hints of color are popular in grays and blues, but if you want a little more flash in the pan you can go straight towards metallics. Traditional styles like collars, off the shoulder designs, and 20s style glam also made a return this year.
Wedding makeup trends are all about subtly this season with simplistic and feature-focused beauty trends being showcased. The idea that ‘less is more’ is allowing brides to draw attention to their best features without going overboard. Naturally though, a little flair for the dramatic allows brides to show their personality.
The key tip for makeup is to look like an enhanced version of yourself. You want your guests to recognize you and when you’re old you want to look back at pictures and recognize yourself. For this reason, brides are opting for barely-there makeup in nude tones and light lips. Pink lips or smoky eyes draw additional subtle attention. If you’re looking for a bolder look, look to the classic cat-eye or contour with color.
Wedding hair looks revolve largely around the length and texture of your current tresses. Your hair could likely get the same attention as your dress with some of the gorgeous styles trending this year.
Braids continue their reign from last year with soft romantic braids often incorporated into elegant updos. The glitz and glam of the 20s also makes a return for hair with soft finger curls and scintillating hairpieces. Sleek pulled back ponytails and low buns offer a soft elegance. Florals find their way in gentle sprigs of baby’s breath and gorgeous floral crowns that are sure to captivate your guests.
Your wedding should reflect you and your personal style. Allow your wedding to showcase you and feel free to incorporate some of this year’s biggest fashion and beauty trends. With the selection of trends available, you’re sure to find the look that is perfectly you.
