Summer is just around the corner which can only mean one thing; wedding season is soon to be upon us! Weddings in the warmer, summer months are popular for a reason. Sunny days and long summer evenings are blissfully romantic and picturesque. We have compiled some of our favorite summer bridal trends, in the hope that you feel inspired when creating your own dream, summertime ensemble. Whether you are a bride seeking classic summer pieces, or you desire a less traditional gown, there will be a style for everyone!
Sheer long sleeves
It may come as a surprise that you can certainly wear dresses in the summer with elements that are associated with colder months, such as long sleeves! Sheer long sleeves are perfect for warm weddings, as they do not feel too hot or uncomfortable, and they look undeniably chic and elegant. We love the look of our Acacia wedding gown's luxurious long sleeves. Made from Chantilly French lace, these sleeves are both romantic and exquisite! The lace also features delicate floral patterns, adding a dreamy, decorative touch. Most certainly ideal for a summer wedding, these long sleeves are light-weight and nonrestrictive, to ensure comfort, style, and opulence!
What better way to make a bridal ensemble summer appropriate than to switch it up, and opt for a colorful, bold color? Bright, colorful gowns are ideal for creating a summer ready look. Alternative, colorful dresses are ethereal in any month, however, they most certainly nod to the warm, sunny season. We love everything about our purple Phoe wedding ensemble that features floral embellishments. This gown oozes summer with a stunning, radiant muted purple tone; perfect for floating down the aisle in the sunshine. Phoe has melted our hearts with a touch of lavender!
Capes are another huge summer trend, as they billow beautifully in the summer breeze, and create another light layer of luxury and grace. Bridal capes are a fantastic elegant accessory that can change up a look with the ease of simply slipping it on or off. This layer can also come incredibly handy during those chilly summer evenings, as they simple drape over your shoulders, creating a shroud of romance. Our graceful Maeve bridal cape is a radiant add on to complement your bridal gown! Made from the softest chiffon fabric, this bridal cape cascades down like a dream; any bride is sure to feel like they are flying adorned in this light-weight layer. Highlight your wedding dress with one of our stunning, exquisite capes!
Our next style is no surprise that it is predicted to be a popular summer trend; the fabulous and elegant open back design. This chic open back style is ideal for those breezy, balmy summer nights, as it will definitely leave you feeling cool and comfortable. We love this look as it most certainly adds a feminine touch to the dress, and an open back matches all types of dress silhouettes. Our Inaya lace and chiffon wedding gown boasts a stunning open back accent. The silhouette and style of this gown is simply mesmerizing; fit for a princess!
Another class summer look is of course floral details! This design is undoubtedly season appropriate, as flowers look fabulous in the summer months. And, to add even more depth and texture to your ensemble, 3D floral applique is our go-to! Floral accents are a timeless spring/summer motif that add a touch of personality and depth to the look. Our Bellissa detachable wedding dress sleeves are adorned with majestic 3D floral applique for a soft and dreamy aesthetic. Not only are detachable sleeves convenient for summer weddings, as they are easy to remove and attach, our floral theme ties the look together wonderfully for a picturesque summer style. By adding texture to your gown, your look is instantly elevated into an unforgettable work of art!
Off the shoulder
What else radiates a summery look more than off-the-shoulder sleeves? This style continues to come back into fashion time and time again, and it is not difficult to see why. Off-the-shoulder sleeves appear so effortless and timeless, creating a flirty and sensual look. Fabulous in summer for showing off the shoulder and collarbone, this neckline design elegantly frames the wearer's face, and creates a radiant and romantic silhouette. We simply can't get enough of our Belva blush mermaid wedding gown featuring an off-the-shoulder neckline. You will feel like you have stepped into a real fairytale adorned in our Belva dress!
The final style we will share with you today is the well-adored cap sleeve. Cap sleeves are classic and sophisticated, and undoubtedly flatter the bride's shoulders. This sleeve style also adds a dainty touch to your bridal ensemble, as they are delicate and neat, and a great alternative to strapless, or off-the-shoulder gowns. They are another fabulous option for warm weather, as they are light, airy and non-restrictive, allowing the wearer to move easily and dance the night away. We are extremely fond of our A-line Nakia wedding ensemble, fitted with graceful cap sleeves, and decorative red lace. The red floral accents also nod to the warm season, and add a bold burst of color. Nakia's cap sleeves look so dashing and elegant!
