Style 3014, Allure Bridals

2017 brides have a lot to look forward to this year! Here are more of the hottest bridal trends that will rock this year.


With an ever-expanding variety of bridal silhouettes to choose from — including flirty playsuits and versatile 2-in-1 looks — brides are totally spoiled for choice when it comes to aisle style in 2017.

The Super Soft A-Line

The new A-line comes in yards of flowy fabrics like soft organza, silk georgette, ethereal tulle or buttery crepe. This romantic unstructured silhouette makes twirling and dancing so easy! Swish!

The Big Ball Gown
Even designers who known for their sleek sultry styles are embracing the more voluminous, princess-y cut. Can you resist this trend?

The Trumpet and The Relaxed Column

Neither as close-fitting as a bias cut sheath nor as sleek as a traditional mermaid, but not quite an A-line nor a true fit-and-flare*, the elegant trumpet silhouette hugs the hips before gently flaring out. (*Some bridal houses equates the trumpet silhouette to “fit and flare”). Depending on the fabric, the relaxed column might cling to the figure like a sheath or drapes like a soft A-line.

Clean Lines, Minimal Embellishments

Not into lace or beading? Silk Mikado, stretch georgette, charmeuse, crepe and organza gowns in striking silhouettes need little to no embellished details to shine, but if you choose to, these gowns are the perfect accompaniments to bold, statement accessories.

Decadent Embellishments

A bit of frou-frou (or a whole lot bling) is cool for 2017 too. Think fabulous feathers, 3-dimensional appliqués, and beading that twinkle like stars.
