Wedding Trends 2017

What’s hot in bridal fashion this year!

If you follow any chic celebs on Instagram, this week you’ve probably seen some stunning shots from New York Fashion Week. Pro tip: follow Jamie Chung for swoon worthy fashion and the occasional glimpse of her hot, hot husband Bryan Greenberg. Thank us later. Anyways, every year when NYFW rolls around we always get so excited to see what’s fresh and new in the world of fashion! It got us to thinking about all of the amazing new trends in the wedding world for 2017. Here are a few that we love:
1) Heavy metals – While we love some serious embellishments on gowns, we’re almost more partial to this trend for bridal jewelry. These days, when it comes to accessories, it’s the bolder the better. Exhibit A: Our fave designer, A.B. Ellie, has a new collection called “Hardware” that features some seriously gorge, totally wedding appropriate heavy metal pieces.

2) High necklines – In ready to wear, the turtleneck is making a serious comeback. While you won’t find a ton of those in the bridal world, you can find plenty of fashion forward higher necklines perfect for the bride looking to cover up in a chic way.
3) Pants – You heard it here first! For the fashionista bride who is really looking to make a statement, pants and jumpsuits are THE hot, new trend! We get that it’s WAY outside of the box, but if you love this trend you could always consider rocking it at just the reception.

A Trend Report

On the heels of New York Fashion week, we have trends on the brain. Watching the collections walk the runway is basically like having someone say “Hint hint, this is what you should be wearing.” It’s perfect; you get to look at pretty clothes, spot celebrities in the front row, and stay on top of your fashion game all at the same time. The bridal world is no different; each collection gives brides a heads up on what is fresh and new in wedding wear. Seeing as how our Hayley Paige trunk show coincides with NYFW, we figured now was the perfect time for a HP trend report. Here’s what to look out for:

Florals – Hayley Paige is definitely known for her sparkle. I don’t think she has ever met bling she didn’t like, and you get to reap the benefit with her shining, stunning styles! In her latest collections, though, we’ve seen a major increase in another pretty detail – flowers! Whether it’s via embroidery, appliqués, or lace, florals have popped up more and more in her recent work, and we’re loving it!

Darker tones – Hayley’s got your back; she knows that white is not an easy color to wear, so she always fills her collections with plenty of hue options. Choices range from the still traditional ivory tones to the more modern blushes and blues. There’s truly something for everyone!

Oh pretty Nicoletta, we're obsessed with you!

See ya strapless – Straps have made a major comeback in the past few years, and Hayley Paige’s collections are no exception. I think a big part of what we love about strapless is the subtle sex appeal, so HP always makes sure to pop some va va voom in other areas of her strapped designs, in the form of illusion details, low backs, and more!

A-line – In recent years, it seems like brides have been into the extremes when it comes to silhouettes. We saw tons of fitted mermaids, and plenty of voluminous ballgowns, but less options in the middle. Thankfully, Hayley Paige knows that brides like options, and she has provided them with beautiful a-line styles that are the perfect mix of flowy and fitted.
