Nothing beats New York City in the fall! Our newest Minneapolis location continues to grow and evolve, so I was so thrilled to be able to preview Spring’s most covetable collections and gain some major inspiration to bring back to the Midwest! Our brides are so open to new trends and unique gowns so here are a few of my favorite trends I saw from our always fashion forward designers!
Sequins! Our designers are on point with this glitzy trend! We saw an incredible level of detail when it comes to sequins this season, from rosegold glam from our newest designer, Truvelle, to chevron patterns from the queen of sparkle, Hayley Paige. This trend was a statement in almost every collection we saw including: Sarah Seven, Rebecca Schoneveld, and Anna Campbell. Sequins are a comfortable, soft way to add major impact to your bridal look. Embrace how these little wonders brighten up your look and draw attention to the best places.
Straps! One of the biggest requests we hear is to add straps to a gown. Good thing we discovered the most brilliant new accessory at market! AB Ellie introduced us to her world of embellished straps, perfect for making any dress your own! The level of detail on these beauties will blow you away. The best part is, they are easily removable if you choose to change your look between ceremony and reception.
Minnesota: the bridal gods have answered your prayers :)
Fringe! I hope this is a trend that never goes away. The showstopper at the Hayley Paige runway show was a fringed top jumpsuit that had me giddy in my seat. Seriously, I could barely contain my excitement. It inspired me to help each and every bride find their truly unique detail about their wedding dress that they love so much it has them bouncing in their seat. We cannot wait to receive the Rue De Seine Cleo dress at a&bé Minneapolis, which is the perfect combo of boho goddess meets your grandmother’s to-die-for lace.
PS - if you're as giddy as I am about the new styles, make sure to set up an appointment with a stylist so we can help you find your wedding dress!
