If you want to make your wedding dress as special as your Gibraltar wedding, then you’ll already be keeping a close eye on the latest trends in bridal wear. Here are five hot catwalk trends that are easy to adapt to lend a unique look to your wedding gown.
Delicate, lacy arm warmers that were independent of the main dress were all over the catwalks for spring weddings. It’s a simple idea that can add playfulness and style to a simple dress, yet adds an extra layer of warmth that can be removed as the weather heats up.
If you want the effect of a train without a full-scale production number, the trend for shoulder bows fits right in with the casual and relaxed style of many Gibraltar weddings. They’re also easy to create yourself with a few yards of ribbon and add individuality for an off-the-peg dress.
This 80s trend has been revived in a much more relaxed style, with much softer and more relaxed bows that add plenty of visual interest to an otherwise plain silhouette. Try tying a large sash around your dress and then leaving the boy half tied for a casual, fun take that’s perfect for dressing up an otherwise simple silhouette.
The high low hemline
Another updated trend, this time from the 90s, the high low hemline is a great way to add some flair to your frock. As short as you dare at the front, this silhouette is conventionally floor length at the back. It’s a great look for a less formal beach wedding, allowing you to paddle your toes in the Mediterranean without having to deal with acres of fabric, yet formal enough to add some couture style to an otherwise casual dress.
The Watteau back
If you do want a more formal look for your Gibraltar wedding, the big news in silhouettes this year is the Watteau back – both dramatic and very wearable. Like a mini train that falls from the shoulder blades, the Watteau back can be removable so you get all the drama during your ceremony before you let your hair down at the reception – ideal for a wedding in Gibraltar with its blend of high style and casual glamour.
