For Something New: Our Buyer’s Diary from Bridal Fashion Week

Spring bridal trends are aimed at nonconforming brides-to-be—she who prefers leather to tulle and jumpsuits over ball gowns. With elegant body-con shapes and convertible trains, even traditional silhouettes have been modernized to suit the contemporary woman. Our favorite trend? Variety, because no two fairy tales are the same. Below, peek inside Nordstrom buyer Sharon Wikstrom’s notes and see what excites her most about next season’s bridal.

Variations in White: Some Stunning Wedding Dresses from Bridal Fashion Week Fall 2017

Designed within an extremely minimal palette, usually for one-time wear to a single occasion, wedding dresses nevertheless encompass infinite possibilities. They span styles and shapes, yet reliably identify the “bride.” And while these white costumes are traditional, they gesture expectantly toward the future and fantasy. Especially this season.

Bridal Fashion Week Fall 2017 introduced many variations on the wedding dress, including pant and short sets—even bodysuits. For the modern bride, the options seem limited only by her tastes. This can be overwhelming to shoppers, sure, but it makes for an immensely pleasurable runway viewing experience.

Here are some styles breathing fresh life into dresses worn by wives-to-be.

Hair Fit for a Goddess at Marchesa Bridal Spring 2017 Presentation | Backstage Beauty

Like Aphrodite rising from Cyprian sea foam or a woodland nymph appearing in the brush, the models in Marchesa’s Spring 2017 bridal collection emerged with natural elements woven into their hair and earrings. Flowers, pearls and clustered crystals framed their faces and crowned their hair. These accessories complemented the airy dresses, themselves decorated in floral appliqués often encrusted with beads and jewels to simulate fresh dew.

To achieve the divinely subtle beauty presented with this collection, Marchesa kept the makeup glowing but minimal, with shimmery liner on the inner eye. Cascading hair was given a light wave then braided into wreaths. Inspired by Eos, the Greek goddess of dawn, Kevin Hughes for MOROCCANOIL created an ethereally romantic but modern hairstyle.
