Trends | 2016

I get asked about bridal trends and sometimes it isn’t about fabric, color or designers. It’s what I am hearing from brides every day. And it was great to share some thoughts with and Charlotte Wilder. Check out my thoughts on the “anti-strapless” movement.

Tip one: There’s one dress trend that everyone wants to avoid—but it might actually be worth considering.

“Everyone’s coming in saying, ‘I don’t want a strapless dress,’ because they feel like they see it everywhere. It’s kind of funny—I say back, jokingly, ‘You and everybody else!’ There’s an anti-strapless movement. And yet, when you try on a dress, it’s about what’s looks good on you. And I hate to say it, but straps don’t look good on everybody.” —Malinda Macari, Your Dream Bridal
