More brides are wearing dresses with three-dimensional elements, according to Urshel.
Wedding planner Amy Shey Jacobs of Chandelier Events told INSIDER it’s a big trend among her brides, pointing to designers using 3-D elements, like Marchesa. Jacobs said she’s seeing the trend take form in “flutters of petals or flowers.”
“The 3-D textural elements in wedding gowns is a trend I don’t see going away anytime soon,” she said. “It’s a really romantic beautiful look.”
Flowers are such a big part of the 3-D textural trend that they qualify as a trend themselves.
Wedding planner Amy Katz of Amy Katz Events identified bold florals as a huge trend in bridal fashion, with more brides going for dresses with statement floral details.
Illusion necklines are everywhere right now, according to renowned wedding planner Colin Cowie.
By combining sheer material with lace, gowns with an illusion neckline look like they’re sleeveless from a distance. The eye-drawing neckline also combines classic and modern, making delicate details look more fashion-forward.
