The Lovely List: Our Favorite Bridal Trends

@floralsandco made with love

This might not surprise you, but we spend hours each week scouring Instagram and Pinterest for incredible wedding inspiration. In planning a wedding, or even a bridal shower or baby shower, the first step is usually making a mood board of the theme and/or feel of the event. But you could look through page after page on Pinterest and spend hours becoming overwhelmed by ALL OF THE THINGS.

We’re here to help give our engaged or soon-to-be-engaged babes an edited version of the coolest bridal trends.  We love when we stumble upon pics of a wedding where the bride reimagines classic design details or incorporates elements that are personal and fun. Art-Deco, edible-sequin-tiered wedding cake? A donkey serving tequila shots during cocktail hour? We’re here for both!

We know a thing or two about wedding dresses here at Lovely Bride but give major props to brides and wedding planners for creating mind-blowingly beautiful weddings. In bridal appointments, we love when a bride comes to us with a clear vision for what their day will look like.

Recently we had a bride in our Lovely Bride NYC shop telling her stylist about her destination beach wedding in Mexico. When she stepped into the Rue de Seine Jackson, her eyes lit up. She walked into the atrium to show her mom and sister the dress and take a peek in front of the large  mirrors.  In that moment both she and her mom were able to explain how mesmerized the wedding guests would be in seeing the backdrop of the beach and her walking down the aisle in a dress that perfectly complemented her dream wedding locale. Admittedly we had visions of Pinterest perfect wedding inspiration images dancing in our heads!

We’ve shared a handful of our favorite wedding trends below- engagement ring shapes, romantic wedding hairstyles, wedding cake (we’ll never not include a wedding cake!), and more link-love to help you curate your own gorgeous wedding.

If you don’t already, be sure to follow us on Instagram and Pinterest where we post more bridal trends, #OurLovelies real brides, and new wedding dresses arriving into our shops!

Lovelies, did you know that we carry Made with Love at Lovely Bride Atlanta, Charleston, Charlotte, Cincinnati, New York City, Philadelphia, Rochester, San Diego, San Francisco, and Washington D.C.

(right) Check out this romantic braid-into-ponytail hairstyle via @belaya_lyudmila that would look stunning with any of our boho wedding dress styles.  Also perfect if you’re planning to dance into the wee hours of the morning, since your hair will stay off your shoulders and out of your face. Wedding win!
