Bridal Week Highlights: From NY to Barcelona

5:46 AM

For the past couple of weeks we've been following all the bridal shows that took place in New York and Barcelona. So we thought that the best thing to do is present a few of the highlights; From the lacy gowns straight out of a fairytale to the modern day deux-pieces, we have them all and we felt the need to talk about them since Bridal Weeks didn't disappoint this season.


The boho/airy dresses are quite a thing this season (as we mentioned in our previous post about 5 Things For Spring) so they certainly could not be missed among bridal shows. We saw them paired with statement silver accessories and natural beauty looks and we definetely think that they are the best choice for every summer wedding.

If you're following us for a while you must have noticed that we're pro minimalism, so this section is one of our favourites. Delicate silk and chiffon dresses that cling on the silhouette with nothing distinctive on other than an air of elegancy; Less is more, and more can be beautiful if styled nicely.

Another thing that we loved this season were the deux pièces  bridal outfits with crop tops, or even bralettes -for the bolder ones- and flowy skirts or pants. It's a fresh and youthful look that not many people can pull off, but if you're bold enough we definetely recommend it.

Lace is always a good idea when it comes to wedding gowns; It's a classic -and classy- choice that never fails. If you choose to go for it we suggest that you pay attention to detail and make sure that the quality is good in order for your dress to end up looking more of a royal rather than a cheap copycat.

A nice and rather luxurious looking alternative of lace is aplique florals. from top to bottom, they look exeptional on hemlines, scattered all over skirts, and decorating decolletages and/or arms. In this case -just like with lace- we'd skip any statement accessories because on your wedding day you'd rather look young and fresh rather than "heavy".

Another all-time classic option is gowns that include full skirts. Even though they're not the most practical -because let's be honest-, they look amazing as they're certainly eye capturing. Lastly, we'd skip one of these on a warmer, summer month but we would definetely choose it for a winter or spring wedding.

For the bolder ones we recommend something with a hint of a sheer panel. Transparencies will always be a thing, and if you have a body type (or the confidence) and you think you can support such a trend then you should definetely try it. If you still want to go down the road but you're not really comfortable with so much skin showing, you can still go for something less extreme, while uncovering part of your back, your arms, or your neckline.

Lastly, for the ones who aren't big fans of flashy ceremonies, receptions and wedding gowns there are alternative choices. You can always add a bit of colour, cut down the length of your dress, or even go for a tuxedo. You have to remember that the point is to feel beautiful and be comfortable enough to enjoy the moment, so considering that your limit is the sky, do whatever you want to and have fun!
