The Top 2017 Wedding Dress Trends You Need To Know About

Whether you’re looking for amazing lace wedding dresses, sexy silhouettes or couture details, we have the top 2017 wedding dress trends for Canadian brides.

Looking for the hottest 2017 wedding dress trends? We're here to help with the latest looks we spotted on the runway this fall, as bridal designers from around the globe gathered in New York for bridal fashion week to reveal their latest wedding dress collections. World-renowned Canadian couture designers, Ines Di Santo and Rivini demonstrated their craft with dreamy gowns, while beloved Canadian labels, Paloma Blanca and Mikaella showcased their sophisticated, timeless and Canadian-dollar friendly styles.

We witnessed the growing popularity of Israeli designers, with jaw-dropping collections by Galia Lahav, Inbal Dror and Berta, as well as, fashion forward looks from Barcelono-based, Yolan Cris and Pronovias. The sheer romance of American bridal designers Monique Lhuillier, Reem Acra, and Hayley Paige impressed us with new twists on bridal classics.

Here are the 2017 wedding dress trends we spotted on the runway.

Amazing lace
From strategically-placed lace overlays to more modest head-to-toe lace dresses, brides have plenty of pretty options. Shown here, from left to right: Pronovias, image by Dan Lecca; Gala by Galia Lahav, image courtesy of Galia Lahav; and, Ines Di Santo, image by Firstview.

We love this 2017 wedding dress trend. Designers get creative with new takes on this soft and subtly sexy look. Shown here, from left to right: Berta, Rivini and Reem Acra; images by Dan Lecca.

This season’s capes give brides more options for a stylish cover up with designs in lightweight flowing fabrics and translucent pieces with sparkly embroidery or lace details. Shown here, from left to right: Oscar de la Renta, image courtesy of Oscar de la Renta; Pronovias and Berta, images by Dan Lecca.

From delicate to dramatic, couture designers took this handcrafted look to a new level this season. Shown here, from left to right: Ines Di Santo, image by Firstview; Mark Zunino for Kleinfeld and Reem Acra, images by Dan Lecca.

Net effect
Another 2017 wedding dress trend we're noticing is the use of netting fabric and honeycomb embroidery to add texture to the illusion look we’ve been seeing for several seasons. Shown here, from left to right: Hayley Paige, Pnina Tornai for Kleinfeld and Berta; images by Dan Lecca.

Ribbon lacing
Corset-style ribbons lace up low-back dresses to create a lovely, designer detail. Shown here, from left to right: Anne Barge, Inbal Dror and Pnina Tornai for Kleinfeld; images by Dan Lecca.
