My Favorite Wedding Dress Trends for Summer Brides

Last year, we learned that our brides had a recurring theme: they wanted their wedding dress not to just be a pretty white gown, but an educated fashion statement. Our Booth Brides were knowledgeable on the bridal market trends, chose what best suited their personality, and most importantly, looked and felt amazing! 

So, here are the summer wedding gown trends we want to see more of in 2017! 

Non-white wedding gowns

From Melissa's gold Carol Hannah gown to Zoe's soft gray-blue MoniRose Bespoke Gown, I just really can't get over gowns that aren't any rendition of white. If I were selecting my own gown again, I'd go for a soft gray blue or gray-green. Would you consider a non-white gown?

Gowns with sleeve details

Two of our darling Chicago brides were up on the growing sleeve trend and showcased it perfectly! Shelby's Liancarlo gown had a delicate but fresh take on illusion cap sleeves that matched her personality perfectly. Christina's Zuhair Murad gown had longer sleeves with geometric detailing that was perfect for her edgy and chic personality.

Bridal Separates

Adya made my day...maybe more like my month when she told me she had gotten separates at BHLDN. She wanted the option to change up her look throughout the day. I adore these options-especially for girls who like to change up their look throughout their day or who may have a size difference from top to bottom. 

Bridal Pantsuit

When I found that we were photographing this sleek and modern Delphine Manivet pantsuit, I actually died and came back to life. This is my idea of the perfect chic look for a really confident and modernist bride. I mean. Dang. How amazing are those architectural cutout details and cropped pantlegs? I'm definitely dying to see more simple and modern pieces this year.

So, which of these trends are you loving? I think I talked myself into each one now...but I think in reality, I'd love a non-white gown the most!
