Latest Trends from Our Designers
At Whyte Weddings we get super excited when the designers begin to release their new collections, it’s a chance for us to get ahead and really see what new trends they’re bringing to their dresses. In this post we’re going to show you what trends are hot right now and what to look forward to seeing more of very soon.
This year sees the rise of the ruffle skirt, with full volume ruffles such as 5577 by Morilee or a more delicate take on the trend like 5866. To work ruffles into your look, think about sophisticated satin tops to really showcase a modern look or keep the rest of the dress plainer to let the ruffles have the maximum drama.
Satin gets Softened
Another amazing trend from our designers is using satin and tulle or lace together to create a sleek and modern yet romantic dress. Sharp satin tops paired with beautiful lace and tulle skirts create a beautiful contrast in the materials and keeps the gown feminine yet ultra-modern. To see this trend in action look at the stunning 2125 by Morilee with it’s gorgeous tulle skirt embellished with lace appliques and the striking satin bodice completed with the pearl and crystal beaded waistline. Perfect for a modern day princess.
Or for a more traditional take on the trend check out Valerie by Rebecca Ingram. This stunning satin ball gown is completed with lace appliques giving this dress a romantic yet timeless feel.
More and more dresses are now starting to include beautiful lace illusion sleeves and we are in love. This look is super modern and chic yet timeless and classic.
5877 by Morilee features striking lace illusion sleeves whilst keeping the dress super elegant with the sexy off the shoulder look and a flowy tulle skirt.
Whilst Francesca by Maggie Sottero is a stunning fitted gown with a modern yet retro feel. The leafy lace design makes this dress truly spectacular and a perfect combination of new meets old.
Illusion Designs and Low Backs
Thanks to modern trends wedding dresses are now becoming more sultry and super feminine, illusion panels can help add a statement to your dress or create a more chic shape whilst low backs on the dresses can make them feel more sexy without showing too much skin.
This trend is showcases by the gorgeous 5773 dress by Morilee, super simplistic crepe material finished with some beautiful beadwork and a striking low scoop back. Showing a little skin whilst still keeping it modest and super flattering.
Or there is the beautiful Delilah by Maggie Sottero that uses illusion cut outs to create a stunning hour glass figure.
Bead work on gowns can give them more texture, sparkle or help draw in your waistline. Some dresses are using beading to give them more of a retro feel such as the stunning Carmen gown by Rebecca Ingram. The use of bead-work on this dress gives it an almost vintage feel but the crepe material keeps it light and modern.
Whilst something like Raven by Maggie Sottero uses the stunning pearls to add a modern twist on a timeless classic.
Our designers are also bringing out more ways to make a dress truly your dress.
For example, our Lydia dress by Maggie Sottero comes with the option of adding stunning detachable sleeves, these can be sewn into the dress or left on hidden poppers so you can create one look for the ceremony and remove them for a more relaxed reception vibe.
Or the Carmen dress by Rebecca Ingram comes with the option of adding a tulle over skirt meaning you can enter your ceremony looking like a princess and for the evening you have a more fitted sultry dress to dance the night away in.
We are super excited for you to come in and try these new trends on in store and find new ways of making them work for you. What are you feeling the most excited about, why don’t you book an appointment today and come in to explore our collection with one of our fabulous experienced stylists.
