These Wedding Dresses Will Be Huge in 2017

If you're planning to say "I do" in the next few years, chances are you've perused bridal magazines, and maybe have even started a Pinterest board, all in the name of finding the perfect dress. Now, the latest Bridal Fashion Week is at an end, and we finally have a peek at the trends we can expect to see in the bridal world over the coming months. 

We tapped the fashion director of Brides, Elle Strauss, to break down the biggest runway trends for the rest of us. Strauss discussed six major wedding dress trends you can expect to see, each of which feels unique, but are still timelessly elegant. Heads up, you may want to save these stunning dresses for later. Even if your own nuptials aren't in the near future, you'll swoon over these stunning gowns.

Read on to see Elle Strauss's take on the major trends from Bridal Fashion Week F/W 18!

Clean and Simple

Updates on the classics, from pearl elements to graphic bows. Newcomers Victor & Rolf debuted their new collection Mariage and flexed their couture muscles with a focus on form and graphic silhouettes.

Long Sleeves

Modesty is back. However, this trend isn't without its sexiness. With sheer or illusion sleeves and delicate form-fitting lace, this trend is anything but reserved.

Pants

Say No to the dress? More and more brides are opting for trousers but that doesn't mean the look is any less feminine with floaty jumpsuits, chic collars, and statement bows!
