It's become clear that SS17 is the season to wear white, so if you are a bride-to-be it certainly is your lucky season. Almost every other designer sent all-white dresses down the runway that were special enough to grace any church isle.
This season the focus was on romance; everything was long in length, floaty and very feminine. We noticed a strong nod towards the victoriana side of romantic with lots of ruffles, frills, high necks and lace.
Ruffles were hanging off of everything, from necklines to waistlines and across skirts. Whether in contrasting fabrics or the same, they were a standout feature across the board and added a very feminine touch.
We noticed two very clear variations of skirt shapes, either the full princess style skirt, as seen in Jenny Packham and Emilia Wickstead, or a very slinky straight down dress the likes of which were seen at Erdem.
We couldn’t help but notice that the key bridal designers such as Jenny Packham and Marchesa all went for tones of pinks this season and actually steared away from all white for their SS17 collection. They were all very subtle soft pink tones that were almost nudes, and some even an ombre - a strong reflection on how non-traditional wedding dresses are becoming more and more popular.
If you're someone who's looking for an 'alternative wedding dress,' but pink isn’t your thing, then don’t worry - since so many designers are using white for next season, you'll be spoilt for choice.
Our favourite looks come from the likes of Alberta Ferretti and Jonathan Simkhai as they go bohemian with their gowns that are unstructured and will move with your body. Long in length, they have beautiful panels of lace and ruffles. Perfect for a sunny clifftop wedding abroad.
