Unique was the new norm for bridal fashion in 2017 and Nouba brides kept us on our toes with unexpected styles throughout the year. Continuing with our Best of series, we look back at the most popular wedding dresses from the year that was.
Bridal trends that stood out were minimal silhouettes, plunging necklines, floral appliqué, blush and subtle colours, statement sleeves and off-shoulder designs.
We rarely saw the same dress twice and many brides eschewed the wedding dress altogether, opting instead for non-bridal styles by long-coveted designers (what better time to make that indulgent purchase?)
We could have included way more incredible brides in 2017’s best of, but for more inspiration be sure to stop by our Pinterest board and check out our amazing bridal designers on the Directory.
A white wedding dress wasn't Maggie's style, so when she spotted a blush Wendy Makin gown in Hope X Page, she knew it was the one. Captured by Gui Jorge, catch Maggie and Grant’s Watsons Bay wedding here.
From the structured geometric cutouts the eyelash lace cuffs, we love every unique detail of Georgia's lilac gown. Designed of course by the bride herself - Georgia Young. She and Adam threw a fab camping wedding captured by Paper & Light Photography which you can see in full here.
Featuring geometric lace and a bold diamond cutout at the back, Pia's long sleeve wedding dress by Grace Loves Lace was the only one she tried on. With Nectarine Photography behind the lens, Pia and Dave's backyard bash can be seen in full here.
