We are surrounded by some truly amazing wedding dress shops with passionate and experienced stylists. So, as we look forward to 2017 weddings, we looked to them for their take on the best dresses for the New Year.


Transformation – Sparkle Bridal Couture

Sparkle Bridal Couture says that separates will be a big trend in 2017. With so many options, committing to one look for the big day is a tough decision, but separates allow brides to transform their looks throughout the day. These looks use a ball gown skirt to achieve a casual look with an everyday top or can take a more formal ceremony look to a sleek look for the reception.

Lace Love – Lillian West 6460

The lace trend is holding on strong as we head into another wedding season. Always Elegant Bridal and Tuxedo chose this Lillian West fit and flare lace gown as a top pick for 2017. The simple silhouette paired with the detailed lace appliques is simply stunning.

Out of a Dream – Lazaro 3607

Our friends at House of Fashion Bridal Salon and Tuxedos says 2017 is all about the skirt. Brides are going to love detachable skirts, over-top-skirts, sweeping skirts and mixed media skirts. This top pick for 2017 features a circular tulle skirt accented with lace appliques and trimmed with horsehair. The skirt may be the scene-stealer, but the bodice is an award-winning co-star.

If this is a taste of what 2017 has in store for weddings, we can’t wait to see more!
