Yes, I got married more than 4 years ago. Yes, almost all of my friends (who were supposed to get married) got married. No, I’m not looking forward to having another wedding (maybe a small one to celebrate our 5th year?) and no, none of my friends asked me for advice or listened to me when I told them my opinions (because a wedding dress is an extremely personal purchase and your mom liking it is always more important than your blogger friend liking it). Having said all those things, nothing stops me from following bridal fashion weeks, lusting after beautiful gowns and dreaming about how I’d look like in one of those. Maybe I can wear one to a gala someday? Like Jennifer Lawrence, no? Just look at these beautiful dresses, 45 of them to be precise, and tell me you don’t want to wear them, even just for a little bit, around the house.
One thing I’ve learned as a former bride and resident fashion blogger is that you never ever stop looking at wedding gowns, even years after you get married. Either they are too beautiful to ignore or all your best friends are getting married the same year and your camera roll is filled with bridal ideas from Pinterest or bridal shop dressing room photos (living thousands of miles away from my friends doesn’t stop me from interfering in shopping decisions, I’m that annoying) so it’s no surprise that once again I’m all over bridal trends this year too. I actually love wedding dresses so much that we (me and my best friend who isn’t getting married – we are 3 really close friends) even made a joke about buying the other two wedding dresses my friend didn’t choose and wearing them as bridesmaid dresses. Sounds a lot more fun than generic bridesmaid looks, no? Having said that, I’d gladly wear any one of these 70 gorgeous dresses from Bridal Spring 2018 collections to go grocery shopping …
Another bridal fashion week has come and gone with gowns making me resent every single choice I made at my wedding and my only consolation is the fact that I didn’t have the time or the money to get or have tailored any of these dresses. But if you are a future bride (don’t have to have a prospect, I started my dream wedding dress folder years before and helped many brides ever since) here are the 60 best bridal looks for fall weddings of 2017.
I’m going to be assertive about something: this summer, no one has more (really close) friends getting married than I do. I don’t know what the hell happened that made them all decide to tie the knot the exact same year and make me go bankrupt or miss some weddings I absolutely dread missing, but it happened. So now I feel like it’s more than just a blog post when I write about bridal stuff and even though most of them already bought their dresses, they’re still %100 more into anything wedding related. Long story short, here are my favorite 50 dresses from the Bridal Spring 2017 collections, for those who are getting ready for the big day and those who just like to look at pretty white gowns.
To be honest, princess perfect gowns of J.Mendel have never been “my thing” before, I always liked them for sure but they were never dreamy to me, until this spring 2017 bridal collection. Minimal with a bohemian flair, body hugging clean dresses with intricate pleats or embellishments seem perfect for a potential special day. And I like baby blue as an alternative color to classic white, I wasn’t such a big fan of green or pink wedding dresses.
