Summer—the season of sun, sand, and, most importantly, weddings—is finally upon us! For most brides, summer signifies not only beautiful wedding locales and weather, but also gorgeous wedding gowns to match the cheery season. If you're searching for a look that's both traditional and summer weather appropriate, opt for gowns with light and airy fabrics. Whatever your style preference might be, just remember that you shouldn't let the warmer temperatures stop you from wearing the dress of your dreams.
• Off the Shoulder
Wide open necks with off shoulder sleeves are a big trend for this year and couldn’t be more romantic or perfect for summer. Keep it light and floaty for a relaxed beach or garden wedding, or look elegant in lace for a timeless formal celebration.
• Short wedding dress
Short dresses are always a perfect choice for summer, so either skip the floor-length wedding dress entirely or change into something mini for your reception. Consider a cocktail-length option made with laser-cut lace.
• Plunging and Portrait Backs
Flashing a little flesh to keep cool, whilst maintaining the air of elegance and modesty for walking down the aisle, is by no means a bad idea. But plunging and portrait backs might just be the answer! They walk the fine line between demure and sexy, and are guaranteed to leave some dropped-jaws behind you as you make your grand entrance on your wedding day.
Colour is a trend that is growing in popularity, with brides and designers alike, and is perfect because it gives you the opportunity to show your unique personal style and the pretty palette of pastels look really summery and sweet!
• Tied Front
A two-piece wedding dress complete with a tied cropped top and flowing skirt, is the definition of summer and bohemian bridal style.
