Spring has finally spring here in Boston, and while this bit of of warm weather may not last long (we’re used to enjoying the good weather while it lasts – as it usually doesn’t!). It’s gotten us all in the mood for open sunroofs and open-toed shoes. Every restaurant with a patio has been packed, and people are finally shedding the thick coats they’ve been wearing for months. This has, of course, gotten me thinking about all the colorful sundresses and sandals I’ll be sporting in the coming months, and for brides to be, it’s a great time to think about putting a bit of spring inspiration into their dress-hunting.
So I went scouring my favorite bridal sites and blogs, and have come up with my favorite spring wedding dress trends. And if I do say so, this is a great season for wedding fashion!
I can’t think of many design elements that say “spring” better than florals. These dresses are a perfect way to bring a bit of the garden into your big day. Not only are the floral accents fun, but they give the dresses an interesting way to bring the dress from simply pretty to couture.
One of my favorite days of the year is the “rotating my summer and winter clothes between the closet storage under the bed” day (alas, downtown Boston apartments tend not to provide sufficient closet space to display all clothes at once – I dream of the day when my closet is able to keep up with my wardrobe!). As we dust off our sandals and sundresses, we also take our legs out of hiding (self-tanner anyone?). These dresses celebrate that same impulse – wedding day style!
These dresses remind me of the sheer wraps and fur stoles worn in Old Hollywood – casually, but so elegantly, thrown over the shoulder by a woman in a devastatingly gorgeous dress. As we New Englanders know, our spring can have surprisingly cold days, and while the daytime sun is lovely, the nights can have quite a chill. These dresses offer you the perfect antidote!
If any of you fell in love with Ivanka Trump’s Vera Wang gown the way I did, then these dresses are for you. It was amazing – inspired by Grace Kelly’s dress, it was classic and glamorous at the same time. In keeping with Jewish tradition (she converted in order to marry Jared Kusher), her arms and shoulders were covered. And in keeping with Ivanka Trump’s tradition, the covering was done with a chic sheer lace.
