Selecting for your dream wedding dress is part intuition, part timeless trend, and part practicality. That feeling when you find “the one” needs to match up with the feel of the wedding. A summer beach wedding esthetic is very different from a rustic autumn barn wedding, and therefor you will likely be looking for a dress that fits your personality, body, and the wedding overall.
The Collection Bridal in Winter Park, Florida specializes in helping you find the perfect wedding dress for your special day.
With fall in the air we thought it would be the perfect time to share with you what’s on trend for Autumn Weddings in 2023.
Overskirts offer the ultimate two-in-one style. They give your wedding dress a ballgown silhouette from the back. From the front they often circle a column or other fitted form, enhancing the volume on the sides. Overskirts are frequently removable, allowing you to have the drama of a full skirt for your walk down the aisle and a little more mobility for dinner and dancing afterwards.
Short, Sweet & Playful
Short wedding dresses with elaborate details are exciting and unexpected because it's so out of the ordinary. Short wedding dresses are big and showing up on the runways of designers like Monique Lhuillier (The collection Bridal is their exclusive carrier in Central Florida). They are a fun option for the less traditional bride and fits in perfectly with non-traditional, less-formal settings, and smaller weddings.
Bows, Beautiful BOWS
A bow has a delicate, flirty-girly quality, but when it serves as the focal point of a wedding dress, it becomes sculptural and contemporary. A lovely bow is a feminine detail that gives a wedding dress a sense of individuality. The most popular bow looks for fall 2023 are puffy bow sleeves, bow-tied necklines, and a single statement bow on the back of the dress.
20’s Inspired Drop Waist
The dropped waist, which is frequently connected to flapper gowns from the 1920s, is making a comeback in bridal attire with a modern update. These gowns flair out at the hips rather than the natural waist, lengthening the torso and emphasising curves. The dropped-waist gown straddles the lines of traditional and contemporary in a perfect marriage.
A Little More Leg
Although the slit has long been a red carpet must-have, it has only recently gained popularity as a desirable wedding dress detail. The latest Inbal Dror are a perfect representation of this look created for the bride who is a bit more daring. A crisp cut along the centre or side of a gown instantly transforms the appearance from virginal to seductive. If you prefer a bombshell look to a princess, this bridal trend is likely a welcome change for you.
Where What Suits You
If your ideal wedding outfit isn't exactly a dress at all or if you value comfort and style equally, a white suit can be your best option. Wide-legged pants and baggy blazers are among this season's relaxed fashions. Fun elements like feathers or a plunging neckline are proving to be a big hit. Another option is to wear a dress with suit-like styling or a two-piece with a skirt as seen on Monique Lhuillier’s runways, Whatever you decide, it will be anything but boring.
