The Spring 2017 bridal dress collections have abounded with different lengths, plunging necklines, high necklines, long sleeves, floaty sleeves, cap sleeves and sweetheart necklines. The 2017 lines are awash with an eclectic selection of different styles. From ball gowns to mermaid gowns, from pant suits to tea length gowns, there are vintage inspired dresses, 60/70’s inspired wedding gowns and hats, the options are endless. You will definitely find one you will fall in love with.
Colour is also present with pink dominating the scene, from the palest blush to the boldest fuchsia, it is definitely a twist on the traditional white.
Though the styles are eclectic the trend is firmly, sensual, romantic and feminine, with a focus on flowing precious fabrics, of delicate lace, intricate beading, floaty chiffon, fluid silk and soft, soft satin; ruffles, frills as well as oversized bows are also present.
Best of all are the beautiful capes in a variety and range of styles and fabrics, Maltese Spring weather tends to be mild, warm and balmy, cooling down towards the evening. The cape is definitely a ‘piece de resistance’. It will keep you warm, but it will also allow you to wear the most decadent plunging neckline to a church ceremony; appearing demure and modest at the altar, while revealing your more mischievous side later on.
Designer collections I particularly love are; Jenny Packham, Carolina Herrera, Elie Saab, Oscar De La Renta and Marchesa, most of which are collections brought to Malta for our local brides as well as brides who choose Malta as their destination for their big day!
