Wedding Dress Trends We Love

1). Separates

No matter your personal style, this bridal trend is for everyone. Looking for something contemporary?  Something more formal?  Something with a bohemian vibe?  Unsure of what you’re looking for?  Separates are the way to go.  With separates, you can create your very own custom look for your wedding- you can mix and match the skirt and top to find the perfect fit for you!

If you are looking for a way to have multiple dresses for your wedding day, this is the way to go- you can wear one style skirt for the ceremony and formal pictures, but change into a different style for the reception!

2). Neutral ColorsWhile most wedding gowns come in white, we are seeing more and more designers add the option of having the dress made in a neutral color. Ranging from beautiful blush tones to lighter shades of gray and champagne, brides are able to find the most flattering color to wear on their special day.

3). Long-sleeveHaving long sleeves on your wedding gown instantly creates a more formal, elegant look. We are seeing this trend in both traditional gowns as well as separates, so your options are endless!

We love this trend for tent weddings– in the months where it’s a little chillier here in New England, this is a great way to give yourself a little warmth.  If you are hosting your wedding in the summer months, lace is the way to go- you’ll have the illusion of a full length sleeve but still be comfortable in the heat!

4). SequinsLove, love, love this trend! It’s the perfect way to make a statement on your wedding day- sequins and celebrating just seem to go hand in hand!  Whether you just use them as an accent on your gown, or the entire thing is made of sequins, you can guarantee you’ll shine!  We are seeing sequins in white, gold, or silver, but some designers are also throwing navy blue, green, and rose gold into the mix!

5).LayersWhen you’re hosting a tent wedding, you should always consider the weather first, no matter the time of year. Even in the summer months- especially on the Maine and New Hampshire coast- once the sun goes down, it will be a little chillier outside.  You can add a simple, lighter layer by wearing a lace cape or shrug, or, if you’ll be getting married in the fall, you can add fur, a cropped jacket, or a shawl to your gown to help keep you cozy!
