Top Wedding Dress Trends for 2022

Top Wedding Dress Trends for 2022

Every bride-to-be has a vision of the perfect wedding gown. It may be a couture dress custom-designed to a set of specifications for some. Others may want a chic designer look with an affordable price tag. Whatever your dream dress looks like, Viero Bridal has the perfect selection to help you stay on top of the wedding trends for 2022.

Since we have emerged from lockdown, fashion has never been more focused on personal style—particularly when it comes to brides.

Weddings have historically been steeped in tradition, custom, and a long list of style demands (and still are). Now they have married couples-to-be considering what they truly want and how to best express themselves while keeping up with hot wedding trends.

In recent years, many brides have been opting for more varied wedding styles and venues than the traditional tried and true church and hall weddings.

From getting married in a backyard to wearing custom Converse while walking down the aisle, weddings are more suited to the budget and dreams of 2022’s brides. With Viero Bridal, you can find a designer gown that fits your personality and the newest bridal gown fashions.

Whether you plan on sticking with a classic or wearing something that bucks tradition, we’ve curated the top wedding dress trends for 2022 to keep you looking and feeling your best on your wedding day.

Finding Your Dream Wedding Gown

We recommend brides start their search by considering what silhouette they feel best in: ballgown, A-line, sheath, fit and flare? Famous fashions always inspire the top trends, so take a look in magazines and online and see which style you love most. From there, it’s all about the details! Are you looking for something with sleeves? Lace? Beading?

What about color? This season is all about shades of color. If you are looking for something different than ivory or white, try blush pink, champagne, and even greens. If those are the colors that speak to your heart, be sure to look for those details in your gown!

Once you have an idea of what your dream wedding gown looks like, you can incorporate elements of the newest trends in wedding gown design.

Top Wedding Trends for 2022

From the engagement party to the rehearsal dinner, walking down the aisle, reception, dance, and every other gathering in between, our wedding designers have taken on the challenge of creating looks that seem ageless but are still chic and on-trend.

Color and Prints

Wedding gowns with prints and colors are a contemporary trend for the bride who doesn’t want to be part of the ordinary. Blush is a popular choice, followed by ginger and champagne for brides wishing to incorporate color, but now we’re seeing colder tones of sky blue, pistachio, lavender, and dove.

As the popularity of pastel weddings continues to grow, these colors are excellent for spring, summer, and autumn, making them perfect for your wedding! You’ll want to choose shades that will go with your bridesmaids’ gowns.

Prints have traditionally been for casual weddings or avant-garde brides, but for 2022, even a conservative bride may choose to wear prints. After all, they are so popular in fashion and can range from subtle, monochrome brocade to bold botanical and whimsical prints. Prints have always been a favorite for the bride who wants to make a spectacular entrance with flair and drama—forget about being ordinary.

A Nod to the ‘90s

The ’90s were all about big hair, high heels, and lots of makeup. It’s hard to imagine a time when the decade’s fashion was anything other than iconic—remember slip dresses and ultra minis?

The reimagined 90s wedding look features slinky silhouettes, square necklines, and fresh designs—all of which exude minimalism and futuristic while still projecting an air of ease. It’s the perfect combination of romance and edgy for a bride looking to mix the two.

If you are feeling the throwback ‘90s style, there are a few ‘90s-inspired designs you can try. The early 90s puffed sleeve gowns will be making a scene in 2022, square and halter style necklines are making a comeback, and mini and slip dresses will be on-trend for brides who want to make a splash!

A Night at the Ballet

Traditional wedding elements of rose and blush gowns, grosgrain ribbons, and fluffy tulle are still favorites of brides everywhere. However, this season will see an increase in ballet motifs—from skirts resembling tutus to leotard-style bodices. The ballerina style doesn’t stop there, of course.

Bridal accessories like bows and ribbons, a variety of transparent fabrics, and various pinky hues are en vogue for a bride looking for a minimalistic and refined style.

This trend does not have to be ultra-feminine. You may add some contemporary elements to the traditional look for a more edgy appearance. Incorporating different elements to add drama, such as using various fabrics or a backless feature, or even adding some unexpected style with shoes, a jacket, or a cape.

Corsets on the Outside

Corsets have been a part of bridal fashion for quite some time, but layers of fabrics typically conceal them. We’re seeing more bridal designers choosing to showcase a beautifully designed corset by displaying them outside of the gowns for 2022.

For a body-con dress with a seductive edge, transparent tulle, lace, and embroidery are being used to complement the corsetry. Brides adore this fresh take on elegant flirtiness, and the look can be sexy or more modest, depending on the type of corsetry.

This style is ideal for a bride who wants to exude sensuality and confidence on their wedding day. It’s also a fantastic method to flaunt your figure, and it will undoubtedly pique people’s attention. If you want to try this trend, be sure to invest in a corset that is well-made and comfortable enough to wear all day.

Bridal Outerwear

If your wedding is outdoors or during cooler seasons, a chic way to keep warm is to wear wedding outerwear. Maintaining wedding elegance and style is made simple, from structured trench coats, leather moto jackets, capes, faux fur, or even bridal cardigans.

The best part? Not only will wedding outwear keep you warm, but you can also wear it with a variety of different gowns.

Choosing a Wedding Dress in 2022

As brides continue to look outside of the box when it comes to their wedding inspiration, they’re moving away from the traditional ball gown silhouette. Different styles of wedding dresses are becoming more and more popular due to brides seeking out more flattering and personality-driven styles that include things like colors, sleek lines, and diverse gown lengths.

Wedding Fashion Future: How Brides Are Reimagining Traditional White Dresses

Wedding Fashion Future: How Brides Are Reimagining Traditional White Dresses

What will the wedding dress of tomorrow look like? The answer to that question is up for debate. But, one thing is clear: it won’t be white and traditional. The global pandemic has changed everything we know about weddings and fashion.

It’s not just brides who need to think outside the box anymore—bridesmaids, mothers of the bride, flower girls, even the wedding party are more inventive with their outfits to stay fashionable during these uncertain times.

The world has changed, but we’ve all had to change our habits and ways of thinking in order to thrive, especially in businesses. The wedding industry, on the other hand, has recovered well. As might be expected, love remained the solid basis of recovery for not only couples but also for vendors, planners, and designers who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to create the perfect wedding for couples everywhere.

With the increase of weddings and parties in today’s post-lockdown world, brides are abandoning traditional attire in favor of designs that represent their unique personalities and fashion senses. The fashions we saw in 2020 and continue to see today aren’t going anywhere; instead, we can use them as a guide to wedding gown styles through 2022 and beyond.

So, to spotlight “the gowns of tomorrow,” let’s take a look at some of the most popular bridal gown trends for post-pandemic fashion.

Trying New Things with Silhouettes

Given the rise of elopements and quickly planned (or rescheduled) weddings, bridal gown silhouettes have dramatically changed since we emerged from lockdown.

Wedding gowns have become more fashion-forward and less safe, and we expect this to continue in the future.

Mini dresses, which have long been a choice for more casual or avant-garde weddings, have now been joined by fashion-forward silhouettes, like bridal rompers, suits, and details like detachable sleeves or skirts.

The white gown will remain in vogue for traditional brides but may also be seen elsewhere in the wedding, such as on bridesmaids and other wedding guests. At the same time, unusual silhouettes that brides formerly thought of as strange or experimental will become a must-have for weddings.

Dramatic Colors and Prints

2021 was the year of color, and that trend is continuing into 2022 and beyond. Brides are opting for gowns in shades like pink, red, yellow, and blue to make a bold statement on their special day. If you’re not into loud colors, don’t worry; there are plenty of other ways to stand out from the crowd.

Botanical prints, whimsical butterflies, and colorful wedding dresses became very popular in 2021, and we think they are here to stay. These fun and romantic prints are a popular option for brides who want to make an impact without wearing a bold color.

However, this does not imply that white bridal gowns are no longer fashionable! White wedding dresses are still popular, but color is now seen as more modern, approachable, and as a form of self-expression.

If you want to include color in your wedding day fashion but are afraid to go all out, try using color in your accessories, shoes, or bridal belt!

Get Inventive with Your Accessories

If the trends of 2021 mean anything, it is clear that we should anticipate the unexpected when it comes to accessories in 2022. Nothing is off-limits, from elegant birdcage veils and gloves to unusual accouterments such as hair bows and clips, chokers, and tights.

However, there are remnants of cherished traditions; these recurring designs have simply been given a contemporary upgrade, making them feel current and exciting once again.

For example, classic drop earrings are getting a makeover—and debuting as elaborate chandelier earrings. Capes, a well-known style, are reworked with glitzy and opulent features like lace, beading, and luxurious fabrics.

We also expect to see more unique accessories such as headpieces, gloves (which add a dramatic flair), unexpected wedding belts, and high-heeled lace-up shoes for brides who want an edgier look. With all of these possibilities, it’s important to remember that accessories can make or break an outfit, so be sure to choose wisely!

The Future of Bridal Fashion

Though there is an infinite number of stunning designs and trends to select from, a wedding is a very personal event, and all final and important decisions should fall on you and your future spouse. It’s also acceptable if none of today’s fashion trends appeal to you. It’s all about you. Whatever you decide to wear on your big day should be your choice.

The bottom line is that, in the end, be true to yourself and allow your personality to shine!

The Takeaway

So there you have it: a sneak peek at the bridal gown trends of 2022 and beyond. No matter your style, there is a trend out there for you! Be sure to stay tuned as we stay on top of the evolving wedding trends. In the meantime, get creative and have fun with your wedding planning!

The future is bright for weddings. And if you want even more inspiration than what we’ve included here, remember that there’s no such thing as a trend that you can’t rework into something new.

All the Styles and Silhouettes of Your Favorite Wedding Gowns

All the Styles and Silhouettes of Your Favorite Wedding Gowns

Choosing the right wedding dress can be a daunting task. With so many styles and silhouettes, not to mention different designs and fabric options, it can be difficult for even the most fashion-savvy bride to make a decision.

To help make this process easier for you, we’ve compiled a list of some of our most popular wedding dress styles and silhouettes. This will arm you with the information you need for choosing what is arguably the most important piece of clothing you will ever buy.

Finding the Wedding Dress of Your Dreams

One of the first questions a wedding gown stylist will ask you at your bridal dress fitting is which sort of wedding dress silhouette or form you want to wear. You may already have a concept in mind for how you want your gown to appear: relaxed and flowing, curve-hugging, etc., but knowing how to phrase it precisely will help you find the perfect wedding dress for your body and your style!

Our glossary breaks down the distinctions between eight popular wedding dress forms, and each silhouette’s advantages to assist you in making an informed choice.

The following list of terms is a helpful way to communicate your ideas and inspirations with Viero Bridal‘s bridal stylists:

Mermaid Wedding Dress

Gabrielle_2The mermaid wedding gown style is recognized as one of the sharpest forms for a bride that wants to make an entrance as it is quite fitted throughout the bust, waist, and hips.

A mermaid dress will complement your natural curves, or it can create the illusion of an hourglass figure if you’re slim or athletic. This eye-catching form flares out at the knees and is available in a variety of necklines and sleeves. Keep in mind that the fitted style of mermaid dresses can be difficult for some to move around in, but the end result is undeniably elegant.

Trumpet Wedding Dress

The trumpet wedding dress form appears very similar to the mermaid silhouette, but several slight distinctions exist.

The most apparent difference is close to the bottom of the gown. The mermaid silhouette flares out just above or at the knees, whereas the trumpet silhouette narrows down and gradually widens at the lower thigh. A trumpet gown gives you more legroom to move while still producing a stunning impact.

The trumpet wedding dress, like the mermaid gown, is another form that works well for enhancing or emphasizing curves, regardless of your body type. Like the mermaid wedding gown, this style is versatile and can be worn for any wedding, from a formal, black-tie affair to a chic and modern reception.

Ball Gown Wedding Dress

Audree_3This silhouette is for you if you’ve ever dreamed of having your own Cinderella moment. Ball gowns are one of the most well-known wedding dress shapes, and they’ll provide you with the feeling of being a princess on your big day. A ball gown has a fitted bodice and a large, flowing skirt perfect for gracefully gliding down the aisle.

The full-skirted gown is a fantastic choice for brides who want to enhance their waist or create the illusion of wider hips.

Ball gowns are often corseted and offer the option to wear regular undergarments, which can be more comfortable for busty brides. The ball gown is fit for royalty—consider the wedding gowns of Princess Diana or Grace Kelly for inspiration.

Tea-Length Wedding Dress

Beatrice_1Tea-length dresses are gaining in popularity, particularly with more casual weddings. However, this style is chic for just about any type of wedding. This wedding dress has a longer skirt than a cocktail and mini dresses—the skirt ends halfway down the calf, showing off some of your legs and ankles.

For elopements, brunch weddings, beach or lakeside weddings, or brides who just don’t want to deal with a floor-length gown, shorter hemlines have long been popular. Tea-length wedding dresses have a vintage and fun flair, flatter all body types and come with various sleeve lengths.

As a bonus, you can accessorize this gown to the max—you can highlight a great pair of shoes with a tea-length dress!

Sheath Wedding Dress

Sheath wedding gowns have long, straight lines that follow the body’s natural form. This wedding dress design is ideal for brides who want an easygoing gown because it uses less fabric and layering than other styles. Sheath wedding gowns with long trains are available, but often this style is beautiful in its simplicity.

Though simple, this gown style is perfect for any wedding or venue; the sheath silhouette looks great with a wide range of fabrics, from charmeuse to silk. Sheath wedding dresses are an excellent choice for brides who do not want to be overwhelmed by fabric or design.

Column Wedding Dress

The graceful wedding dress form is similar to the sheath, but it has a narrower and more structured bottom opening. Column wedding dresses, which are also sometimes known as the goddess style, may be tight-fitting in the bust, but are almost always loose at the waist and fall straight to the floor without any flare, which gives them a streamlined look. This style of gown is popular for providing the illusion of a longer, leaner figure.

Column wedding dresses are known for being flattering no matter your body type or shape. They can be found with long sleeves or sleeveless embellishments, as well as in various necklines. These gowns will also be perfect for showing off intricate details like crystals, beading, or lace because the design is less elaborate than some other styles. Column wedding gowns are also easily accessorized and allow for a variety of hairstyles.

Fit-and-Flare Wedding Dress

Hera_5A fit-and-flare bridal gown may be an excellent alternative for women who want to flaunt their figure without going all out with the mermaid or trumpet styles. This somewhat toned-down variation still hugs your body through the bust and waist while being a bit more forgiving in the hips, bottom, and thighs. The skirt flares out just below the knee.

Fit-and-flare wedding dresses are fabulous for showcasing your curves, but they aren’t quite so restrictive as other forms. With this style, you can also choose to wear undergarments that help create a more comfortable fit.

Because they flatter a wide range of body types, fit-and-flare gowns are among the most popular wedding dress designs. This design looks stunning with a sweetheart neckline and comes with a variety of options for sleeves.

A-Line Wedding Dress

macklein_2Consider the A-line gown as the halfway point between sheath and ball gown silhouettes. The A-line skirt flares out further than a sheath dress, but not as dramatically as a ball gown. This universally flattering form is perfect for all body types and wedding styles, from rustic to bohemian to formal to beachy.

A-line wedding dresses are available in various fabrics and styles—from sleek satin to elegantly embroidered silk gowns. Due to its classic versatility, you can customize your look with accessories, jewelry, and hairstyles that solidify your ultimate wedding style.

Choosing Your Wedding Gown

Once you’ve decided on which silhouette best suits your personality and body type, bring some inspiration photos— try browsing Pinterest, Instagram, or bridal magazines and catalogs—to your appointment so you can show your consultant what you have in mind.

Whatever wedding dress style or silhouette you love, the most important thing to remember is that you will want to feel confident, comfortable, and beautiful on your wedding day. This might mean that you need to forget the current trends or what you might believe to be “correct” for your body type and put some faith in our bridal consultants. When it comes to wedding dress shopping, there’s no need to stress. The gown you pick may turn out to be different than the one you intended or what you thought you wanted! Keep an open mind while also knowing enough about the basics, and you will have a memorable and enjoyable experience.

If the only style that appeals to you is a vision you have dreamed of, there’s no need to be discouraged! Viero Bridal offers affordable custom couture wedding dresses that will fit your style and personality.

How to Bring Your Wedding Gown to Your Destination Wedding

How to Bring Your Wedding Gown to Your Destination Wedding

Planning a wedding is no easy task. It can be hard to find the perfect wedding gown and even harder to find the perfect wedding dress boutique. Viero Bridal is the ideal wedding boutique to help you find the right gown for your dream wedding—no matter its location. If you’re planning a destination wedding, it’s essential to ensure your wedding gown will withstand travel and last until your big day!

In this article, we’ll discuss how to bring your wedding gown with you to your destination wedding without damaging it or risking its safety.

Consider How You Are Traveling

While there are probably plenty of gorgeous wedding venues near you, a destination wedding occurs in a location away from home.

This means you’ll likely be traveling to the wedding venue by plane—and if it is out of state or country, then chances are you may have a distance to go!

The first thing that comes into mind when thinking about how to bring your wedding gown to your wedding is: “How am I going to get it there?”

This may not seem like the most important thing, but consider this: if you’re driving and your wedding gown gets damaged due to travel, or something spills on it while you’re en route—then what?

Every airline has its own set of rules and regulations, so contact the airline you’ll be using to determine how they handle passengers with oversized and fragile items like a wedding dress. While they probably won’t be able to offer any guarantees, you’ll at least learn more about what to anticipate once you board the plane, and you’ll be better prepared to take the wedding dress with you.

Packing Your Wedding Gown

Wedding gowns may have extensive trains, and many gowns include a lot of fabric, so putting your wedding dress away neatly in a garment bag isn’t always easy.

It’s critical to pack your wedding gown carefully because wrinkles can ruin the look. Begin by hanging the dress hanger through the top of the garment bag and displaying it high so you may work with it. Then, fold each side of your wedding dress together toward the middle. Finally, slowly zip the garment bag to avoid snagging any material—placing a finger over the zipper will ensure that your dress is fully protected.

Pack Your Wedding Gown in the Overhead Bin

You could also store your garment bag in an overhead compartment. If that’s the case, you’ll need to fold up the garment bag or roll it up, depending on how much room is available. If you need to roll it, start with the hanger. Another option for overhead compartments is to lay the dress flat on top of a suitcase and fold the wedding dress over it.

It’s often best to avoid putting your dress in your checked luggage. Not only is checking extra luggage costly, but it’s also inconvenient, so no one wants to end up with their wedding gown confiscated and baggage checked. Even worse, you don’t want your dress to get lost!

This is why it is essential to discuss your airline’s weight and size restrictions to ensure you’ll be permitted to include your wedding dress as carry-on.

Extra Precautions

Another choice for transporting your wedding gown is to buy an extra seat for it.

Some brides purchase seats for their wedding dresses so that they stay in good form during the flight. If you have extra cash and want to be cautious, reserve a one-way ticket for your dress—it’ll stay with you until you’re ready to walk down the aisle.

However, purchasing another ticket can be expensive and may not fit into your budget. So before you buy one for your wedding gown, make sure it’s worth spending extra money on!

Why not inquire whether there are any empty seats on the plane so you can store your dress there? Someone will almost certainly be willing to trade places with you so you can sit next to the gown, and a decent flight attendant will be happy to assist you in moving around so it works for you.

When You Reach Your Destination

The gown will need some attention after you both arrive at your destination. Bring a portable steamer and a voltage converter if you’re getting married outside of the United States. To prevent water spots, cover the top of your steamer with a towel or a cotton sock.

As we mentioned previously: wedding dresses are incredibly delicate. Even though wedding gowns are made to be sturdy, they still can get damaged during transit—especially if you don’t pack them correctly!

If your wedding gown gets caught on something while being checked as luggage or while within an overhead bin, there’s not much you can do about it. If you’re concerned that your wedding dress won’t survive the trip, consider bringing a friend or relative (like a bridesmaid or wedding planner) to hold onto the wedding dress bag and ensure it is safe throughout the journey.

Are You Planning a Destination Wedding?

If your wedding is an adventure, then bringing along your wedding gown should be easy!

However, if traveling with it causes stress, fear not; the advice listed above should help you get hitched without a hitch!

At Viero Bridal, we’ll help you find the perfect couture wedding gown in our Chicago, New York, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles locations. With a wide range of designer dresses and the option to custom make the gown of your dreams, you are sure to find what you are looking for!

8 Things Your Wedding Photographer Wants You to Know

8 Things Your Wedding Photographer Wants You to Know

Wedding photographers have seen their fair share of weddings. This also means that wedding photographers have also seen the good and the bad of wedding days. As the photographer follows every step of the way, they play witness to everything from dress disasters to meal mishaps as often as they witness beautiful bouquets and gorgeous gowns.

Weddings are a blur of emotions and activity that create memories to last a lifetime. But, couples often forget pictures when planning their big day. Finding the right photographer is only half of the battle.

At Viero Bridal we understand what goes into finding the perfect dress and planning a wedding but we also know how easy it is to forget some of the finer details on the actual day.

Remember, your photographer has seen it all! And because of that experience, there are a few things they’d like you to know when it comes to your wedding photos.

Follow these tips to make sure you are creating picture perfect mementos!

What You Need to Know for Your Wedding Photos

A great wedding photographer knows that they are in charge of capturing memories for generations and takes their work seriously. A good one will ensure you get the finest photographs possible on your big day—they know how important it is!

Here some tips on improving your photos from top wedding photographers:

Photographer Pro Tip #1: Make Sure You are Comfortable in your Dress

This one may seem pretty self-explanatory, but photographers have seen many brides wearing an uncomfortable wedding gown.

Some gowns are too tight, some have not been fitted properly, and everything in between. Choosing a reputable bridal boutique like Viero Bridal is vital to ensure that you have an experienced professional helping you select your wedding gown from one of our beautiful collections. You may even opt for a custom wedding gown made with one of our Custom Dress Specialists.

Spending time to choose the perfect dress that suits your style and body is crucial to feeling comfortable and looking fabulous. It’s important to remember that wedding photos last forever, and you want to make sure that there are no awkward images from your special day.

Photographer Pro Tip #2: Don’t Forget the Rings!

Many brides and grooms tend to forget something significant on their wedding day, their rings!

It’s easy for couples to get wrapped up in everything. They can easily misplace or even lose these treasured items. Some forget to leave enough time to have the rings purchased and fitted!

Don’t let this happen to you, and make sure you give yourself time to buy your rings, and have someone chosen to be on the lookout for where the rings are at all times on your wedding day.

Photographer Pro Tip #3: Have Fun

A wedding day can be very stressful, but you want to be sure that your guests—and you— have fun. Creating a checklist can help ease the stress of wedding day jitters, and if you are not as organized as you would like to be, ask a friend to be the go-between for the vendors and any issues that pop up.

If you and those closest to you aren’t enjoying themselves, then chances are no one else will be either. Your guests will notice whether you are looking happy or not, too. Take a deep breath and enjoy your special day!

Photographer Pro Tip #4: Don’t Forget the Details

Details are essential for your wedding! Ensure that you don’t forget about those little things that often get overlooked, such as toiletry essentials in the restrooms for your guests, playing music for older and younger guests, and remembering teetotalers when planning your reception!

When it comes to your wedding photos, you should also consider the details. Browse wedding photos from your photographer and others in your area and note the elements you love.

You may want to base your flower choices, place settings, and even wedding accessories on the photos you admire.

Photographer Pro Tip #5: Check the Weather!

While you will probably be checking the weather very closely, especially if you have outdoor features, it may get more hectic as you approach your wedding day (and the weather may change!) Checking the weather in advance will help you plan accordingly and avoid any unnecessary stress leading up to your wedding day.

Photographer Pro Tip #6: Do Your Research and Trust Your Photographer

OrleanYour photographs are a record of your wedding day, which is why taking your time when hiring a photographer is really important. Photographers can provide the equipment and take photos, but if you don’t jive together, it can ruin the images altogether.

On the other hand, trust their expertise once you find a photographer that works well with you. A good photographer knows the best poses, the proper lighting and can efficiently get the best photos.

If you are hesitant or not ready for your photos, you may force your photographer to waste valuable time that they could be using to get the perfect shots!

Photographer Pro Tip #7: Make sure Your Photographer has a Backup Plan

If there is bad weather or other types of issues with lighting, make sure your photographer has a backup plan in place.

This can also include having an alternate location to take your photos, such as under a canopy or indoors if the weather is not cooperating on your wedding day!

Photographer Pro Tip #8: Make sure Your Photographer has Food

Photographers are often working for hours at a time, so it’s essential to make sure they have something to eat while doing their job.

While you will likely include your photographer in your wedding dinner, providing water and snacks to your photographer is a kind gesture and ensures that they are keeping focus.

The snacks can be anything from energy bars to fruit; it doesn’t have to be fancy—just make sure they are eating!

Planning Your Wedding

The wedding planning process can be daunting. From choosing the flowers, meal, and music to the ultra-important selection of the wedding gown and picking the right photographer to capture the best moments, you want everything to be perfect.

Viero Bridal can help you take care of the apparel portion of your wedding planning. We suggest making the process easier by taking time for yourself, researching styles and designers that appeal to you, and trying on dresses with an open mind instead of feeling pressured into buying immediately. Once this task is complete, you can set about choosing a photographer you trust!

When planning your wedding, you can help alleviate some of the wedding planning stress by following the tips listed in this article.

When you are ready to look for your wedding gown, book an appointment with Viero Bridal. We have wedding dress boutiques in New York, Chicago, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. Between our range of designer gowns, the custom couture option, and our friendly, expert staff, you will be sure to find the dress of your dreams!

What is the Best Time of Year to Buy a Wedding Dress

What is the Best Time of Year to Buy a Wedding Dress

Wedding season will be here before you know it, and if you are looking for a wedding gown, it is essential to get the shopping process started early.

Wedding gowns typically need to be specially ordered because there may be limited sizes and colors available unless you wear a precise (sample) size.

At Viero Bridal, we offer a beautiful selection of affordable designer wedding gowns and custom-made dresses so that our customers can get a couture gown precisely as they want it when they want it!

If you are recently engaged or starting to plan your wedding, you may be wondering what the best time is to find that perfect wedding dress!

To help make your dress buying journey easier, here’s everything you need to know!

The Best Time of Year to Buy a Wedding Dress

January is the best month to find a wedding gown for purchase. Winter brings Christmas and New Year’s Eve, which typically sees an increase in proposals from other months of the year. As a result, wedding professionals, including our designers and tailors, will step up their game during this time of year due to an influx of brides looking for the perfect wedding gown.

One of the benefits of purchasing a wedding gown in January is that you are giving yourself lots of time for the shopping, ordering, and fitting processes.

Late spring, summer, and early fall is prime wedding season. So, buying your dress in January gives you at least four months for alterations and a roomier timeline for finding accessories, jewelry, and other accouterments.

Why is January the Best Time of Year to Purchase Your Dress?

Other than timeline considerations, what makes January the best time of year to purchase your wedding dress?

Here’s the answer:

Release of New Collections

Elle 1When the New Year rings in, it’s a great time to find the latest styles on offer. Wedding gown designers send out their newest dress collections in January, which means that you will be the first to see and try the new styles for the upcoming wedding seasons.

At Viero Bridal, we carry the highest quality affordable wedding dresses from top wedding designers. Giving yourself lots of time to ensure that your dress will arrive in time for fittings and fit perfectly for your nuptials.

 

Summer Weddings

Most bridal gowns take around 8-12 weeks to manufacture, so brides getting married in the summer must start wedding gown shopping early.

Gabrielle_1This may mean there is a bit of a rush on best-selling styles and designers. But, don’t worry. Increasingly more brides are choosing fall and winter weddings over summer nuptials, which means there is never a bad time to find the perfect dress. As long as you give yourself some time for the dress to arrive safely and have alterations completed, your gown (and you) will be ready for the big day.

Custom ordering from a premium wedding dress boutique, like Viero Bridal, means you have the option of choosing your own dress, or you can design a couture-inspired gown. While you will need to meet with our designer to create your perfect dress, alterations are not an issue since all pieces are tailored to fit your body.

Newly Discontinued Gowns

Jacqueline_1If you have had your eye on a particular style, you may have difficulty finding it mid-season. This is because there’s typically a time limit on the availability of discontinued wedding dresses. So if you find something that catches your eye, don’t hesitate to inquire about it.

If a gown from an older line is in stock, you may be able to purchase it. However, if this is not the case, a custom-design gown is a viable option.

 

January Wedding Dress Shopping

When dress shopping in January, it is a good idea to plan for inclement weather. If you are visiting our wedding dress boutique in New York or Chicago, for example, you may experience significant snowfall that prevents you from getting to the store.

LauraWhen setting your plans, pick a second date in case the first one doesn’t pan out.

Getting a wedding dress can be time-sensitive because the best dresses need to be ordered, and special orders could take up to six weeks. But, that doesn’t mean that January is necessarily the right time for you.

Certainly, it is the time to find the latest dresses and collections, but if your wedding is in November, you can take a few more months to mull things over.

All you need to do is purchase a dress well in advance of the wedding. You also need to factor into this timeline any allowance needed for shipping or design.

Designing Your Ideal Wedding Pinterest Board

Designing Your Ideal Wedding Pinterest Board

Pinterest has become a crucial piece of the wedding design process for many brides. In fact, 38 million Pinterest boards are dedicated to weddings.

It is undeniable that Pinterest has become the go-to site for wedding inspiration, but it’s worth taking a few tips and guidelines into account when creating your own wedding board.
Here are a few things to keep in mind as you brainstorm ideas and inspire yourself with our guide to designing your ideal wedding Pinterest board.

Design Unique Boards

In order to make your wedding planning more efficient, create a board for each category of the event.

One good idea is to have a board specially designated for bridal gowns and flower arrangements. Other suggestions we have for wedding boards are:

  • Ceremony decor
  • Cocktail reception decor
  • Reception decor
  • Table settings
  • Stationary ideas
  • Cake design
  • Color schemes
  • Floral decor
  • Bridesmaid dresses
  • Hairstyles
  • Favors
  • Makeup
  • Place cards
  • Seating charts
  • Gifts for the wedding party
  • Inspirational weddings

Create boards to refer to during the planning process. For example, you could create a board covering your predicted distractions or mishaps throughout the day to help prepare you for your big day.

Use the Secret Board Option!

GiselPinning your favorite styles can be helpful when you need to reference a specific wedding dress or flower and have trouble describing it to others. However, Pinterest has a great option of keeping some—or all— of your boards secret.

Secret boards allow users to hide wedding details and plans from friends, family, or even future spouses.

If you plan to share your Pinterest boards with wedding vendors, you can always add the vendor as a viewer on the secret board. Giving them a link to your wedding board allows them to see precisely what you are looking for and provides inspiration for your wedding design process, too.

Broaden Your Searches

LauraWhen it comes to putting together a Pinterest board, don’t restrict yourself to wedding-specific designs. Broaden your search to any aesthetic you find interesting: interior design, fashion, art, photography, or anything else that catches your fancy. Just like life, you never know when inspiration might strike!

You may want to look at New Year’s Eve parties, prom ideas, and even search topics like charcuterie board ideas to serve at your wedding.

Broadening your search will bring results that you may not have considered without thinking outside the box.

Use Descriptions When You Pin

mackleinWhen pinning images to your wedding boards, take a moment to note what specifically interested you about those particular pins.

You may pin something because of the attached article, and these little notes will help when sorting through photos in the future so you can remember why certain images were important enough for capturing.

You should also note what you love about a bridal gown in the description when pinning wedding dresses to your wedding board. This will help you remember details about each wedding gown, including color, the designer, and whether you saw it on someone with a similar body type.

Use the Suggested Pins from Pinterest

MirtaAre you searching for new pins? Use the search option and scroll down to see the suggested pins that correspond with your wedding-related searches.

Interested in seeing industry-wide trends or following a curated board with content that you love? When it comes to finding pins, Pinterest will come up with similar suggestions based on what you enter.

You can also explore other people’s categories of wedding boards. If you want to see wedding ideas for winter weddings, wedding decor, or a wedding makeup, it’s easy to explore the wedding category to find inspiration from others.

Find Your Wedding Style

If you have yet to narrow down the season or style of wedding, Pinterest can be a big help.

OrleanAre you planning an outdoor summer wedding? You probably should move away from pinning Christmas-themed weddings. But, you may actually get a better idea of what your true wedding style should be if you tend to pin one style over another.

So you need to think about whether your event is more luxurious or elegant and decide if it will fit in with this theme.

Pinterest will help you with planning a wedding and looking for some inspiration. There are plenty of ways to find inspiration for planning your event, including realizing what style suits you by looking at photos taken at other weddings that have already happened or searching posts from experts.

Wedding Trends for Fall 2021

Wedding Trends for Fall 2021

When the leaves start to turn colors and the air is crisp, there’s a shift in the mood. This shift can be found in wedding planning, too!

The anticipation for fall begins as soon as summer ends because we know that it means so many things—cooler weather, pumpkin spice lattes, boots instead of sandals. It also means new wedding trends!

Wedding trends are changing all the time. It can be hard to keep up with what will make your wedding dress look and feel affordable; Viero Bridal has the fall wedding trends in sight for 2021.

2021 Wedding Trends for Fall 2021

In this blog post, we explore some of the top wedding trends making waves for fall!

Environmentally-friendly Weddings

A green wedding is a relatively new trend, but green weddings are quickly gaining in popularity.

Planning an eco-friendly wedding means ensuring that the environmental impact of your wedding is reduced. Typically, there is minimal use of traditional wedding decor, with sustainable sources for the nuptial flowers and festivities. Brides are more likely to choose wedding gowns made from natural materials such as silk and groom attire such as linen or organic cotton.

Couples are planning eco-friendly weddings influenced by the needs and concerns of the environment. The goal is to reduce the impact on the Earth’s resources while still having a beautiful celebration and enjoying the day. Suppose an eco-friendly wedding is something you are considering. In that case, there are many ways to make your wedding day more environmentally friendly, from flower selection to table settings, ceremony sites, and more!

Here are just some ideas:

  • Your wedding bands can be made from sustainable metals, materials, or gems.
  • Order invitations made from recycled or unbleached paper, or even stationery that contains seeds and can be planted!
  • Choose a venue with an Energy Star rating or LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) designation; here is a great resource: Explore Green Buildings.
  • Choose wildflowers, locally-cut flowers, planted pots, or consider incorporating outdoor elements into your wedding decor.
  • Serve sustainable meals by choosing caterers that use local farms, cheese, meats, or other products.
  • Serve local wine, if possible.

Lastly, remember that you can make your wedding as green as possible, but not at the cost of a lovely day! You can have a fun and affordable wedding while reducing your carbon footprint.

Multi-color Wedding Themes

The latest autumn fashion and decor trends have become an obsession among brides-to-be (and their entourages) who want something different from pastels or winter whites for fall.

Breaking free from homebound quarantine neutrals, weddings this fall will feature statement theme colors and different palettes than we have seen. And, since we have been cooped up for so long, brides choosing the technicolor theme are really going for bold!

These colors look lush in a formal wedding setting but fit every other theme under the sun. Use these unexpected colors in your centerpieces, bridesmaid dresses, flowers, and even your candles.

For fall weddings, red roses will still be popular—and don’t forget jewel-colored gerbera daisies! You can take the trend further by incorporating bold colors in layered looks with your table settings—china, chargers, and linens.

The use of marigold, cantaloupe, and grape paired with greens is taking off, or use traditionally bold hues like burgundy, orange, and hunter green—the bright tones of autumn leaves for your dress!

Fashion Forward Attire

Since we have spent most of the last year and a half in loungewear, wedding fashions will be luxurious and unexpected.

We will be seeing a revival of Great Gatsby-esque flapper attire, with pearls and crystals adorning wedding gowns. Expect fabulous drop waist gowns and sheath dresses to continue to appear in fall weddings for 2021. Wedding gowns with over-the-top sleeves are a nod to the 80s for the bride who loves avant-garde fashion.

Expect fabrics with bold and playful prints as brides break free from sweats and super casual wear we have been used to lately. Lace is still extremely popular with many brides.

You’ll also see heavier fabrics, such as velvet and fur—all to keep you warm during colder months ahead. And don’t forget the fashion accessories: heavy velvet cloaks, horn-rimmed glasses, and chunky sweaters as a coverup for after the ceremony are just a few of this season’s hottest trends.

Couture wedding gowns are a great way to incorporate wedding trends into a custom-made wedding gown designed at Viero Bridal.

Weekday Weddings

Weekday weddings are becoming more and more popular in recent years and for a variety of reasons, and especially for the fall of 2021.

One reason that they are trending is that weekday weddings are more affordable than their weekend counterparts. This is the perfect time to get married if you’re looking for an affordable wedding, either because you are on a budget or simply don’t want to spend all of your money on one day.

Another reason why weekday weddings have surged in popularity is that guests, whether they are family or not, can make their schedules work with the event, as weekday weddings are often at night.

While there are a lot of benefits to a weekday wedding, there are also some disadvantages. The biggest issue is that guests may not attend the event because of prior engagements or work schedules. If you can make your ceremony on a day that many people already have off work, like a mid-week holiday, this may not be a problem. Another issue is that it may limit your guests from out of town as they may have to take time off of work while traveling, which could be a big problem.

Small Weddings

Many couples are getting married in smaller and more intimate settings, a trend that we see even higher demand for since the beginning of the global pandemic.

Most people who choose to go with a small wedding say they prefer a more affordable and less stressful event where they can focus on their relationships and spend more time with close family and have intimate connections throughout the wedding.

10 Things the Bride Usually Forgets on her Wedding Day

10 Things the Bride Usually Forgets on her Wedding Day

When you are wedding planning, it’s so easy to forget about the little things. You have so much to take care of, and some days it feels like there are just not enough hours in the day to get everything done.

As necessary as it is for you to know what flowers you want, or how many guests you can expect, there are plenty of other details that need your attention too.

But wedding planning is multi-faceted and there are sure to be details that slip your mind, especially some of the behind-the-scenes details.

The fact is, even the most careful bride can forget something. To avoid potential problems and inconveniences, we’ve put together this list of things that brides usually forget on their wedding day.

Account for these items and your special day should be smooth sailing!

10 Things the Bride Usually Forgets on her Wedding Day

1. Wedding Rings

Your finger probably already has a gorgeous engagement ring around it, but it is essential to remember wedding bands for you and your partner to exchange during your wedding ceremony.

You should order your wedding bands early since most bands need to be customized to fit your finger, and you will want to be sure that they are back in time for the wedding.

2. Post-Wedding Transportation for the Newlyweds

You and your partner will likely have gotten a ride to your wedding venue and reception, and as a result, you may not have vehicle access when the wedding is over.

A wedding checklist item that many brides forget is arranging a ride from the reception to your final destination—hotel, airport, or home.

Adding this will mean that you are not scrambling to find a ride at the end of the wedding!

3. Bustling Your Wedding Dress

Jaya 1When purchasing your wedding gown you have a lot to consider—style, silhouette, material, color, and more. When you find your dream gown, it might have a bustle, which means you will want to bustle it after the ceremony and photos are taken.

You may want to consider bringing a friend with you to one of your gown fittings. The tailor can show you how to bustle it so that you can do it on your wedding day. Since wedding gown bustling can be difficult, you need someone who can quickly perform the task so you can rejoin your guests for the reception.

 

4. Planning for the Wedding Gown

Trying on and deciding on a dream wedding dress is exciting, and most brides think that paying for the dress means that it comes home that day. Most wedding gowns are specially ordered in your size, which means you should anticipate waiting for the gown to come in.

If you are set on a custom couture gown by Viero Bridal, the gown is being created with your exact measurements, so you will have to wait here as well. Most wedding gowns require alterations and multiple fittings. Alterations will make your wedding gown look like it was made for your body, but this can also be costly.

Make sure you include the cost of alterations in your overall wedding budget, leave enough time for your wedding gown to arrive, and for any subsequent alterations and fittings.

5. Asking Someone to Transport Your Wedding Gown

Your wedding gown is something you spent considerable time and money on so you will want to make sure its whereabouts are accounted for!

After the wedding, you may want to ask one of your bridesmaids, a family member, or close friends to take your dress home. You may want to ask the same person to be responsible for returning a rented tuxedo.

This is especially important if you are leaving for a honeymoon immediately following the wedding. If you are using a wedding planner, they may offer this as a service, so inquire when negotiating the contract.

Otherwise, ensure that you don’t forget to make arrangements for these important items.

6. Accessories

It would help if you gave your wedding accessories some thought since you may require different accessories for multiple wedding events—showers, brunches, bachelorette parties, rehearsal dinners, and, not to forget, the main event, your wedding.

Remember to try on your accessories with your wedding gown. You may need to make some adjustments to the length, style, or color, and you won’t know until you see them with your wedding gown.

After everything is chosen, pack them in a designated bag that you will bring with you to wherever it is you are getting dressed for the wedding. It will be one less thing to think about in the hustle and bustle of organizing!

7. Pre-Wedding Food

Forgetting to eat on your wedding day is very common, but it shouldn’t be. When you are creating your wedding checklist, include pre-wedding food.

Since your wedding day will be fast-paced and hectic, eat a good breakfast before starting the day. You may want to provide some snacks and plenty of water while you are doing hair and makeup. Grazing foods ensure that everyone has an opportunity to eat but remains a part of the getting ready process.

Ordering a few charcuterie boards, fruit and vegetable trays, and some baked goods to have on hand will help avoid sending someone to a drive-thru to pick up fast food at the last minute, or even worse, not eating at all.

8. Marriage License

A marriage license is something that can easily slip your mind, especially when you have focused so much on arranging everything else. However, your wedding won’t be official without it.

The first step is to research how long it takes to obtain a marriage license in your state. Some states require that you have the license for weeks before your wedding, while others simply need it for one day. It is crucial to know the local or state laws for getting married because your marriage may not be legal without it.

9. Arranging Hotels

It is always appreciated by out-of-town guests when you arrange for a block of hotel rooms to be set aside. Typically, wedding guests will receive a special rate for booking. If you have many out-of-town guests, you may want to inquire at different hotels with various price points to suit everyone.

As an added touch, creating welcome bags for your out-of-town guests is a thoughtful surprise. Pick up some specialties local to the area, like cheeses, treats, and self-care items, along with a map of the area with instructions for transportation, restaurants, and local attractions.

Throw in some snacks and children’s items (if appropriate), and your guests will be thrilled.

10. Asking Someone to Care for the Personal Items

You will likely have gifts, wedding decor, and other items that need to be transported to safety. Choose a reliable person to remove these items when the wedding ends so you are not worried about anything left behind.

You will be exhausted at the end of the day, and the last thing you want to do is gather up wedding decor, gifts, and personal items in your wedding gown.

Let Viero Bridal Make Things Easier

When you take a step back and look at the big picture, it becomes clear that there are just two kinds of wedding details: things you can’t forget and things you will probably forget.

Most Popular Wedding Colors of 2021 and How to Incorporate Them

Most Popular Wedding Colors of 2021 and How to Incorporate Them

Choosing your colors is one of the most important decisions you will have to make when wedding planning. Your wedding colors can determine your decor, flowers, attire, and even your invitations. Your wedding color palette can effectively change the atmosphere of your wedding day, so it is important to consider the colors you choose carefully.

Newly engaged couples often feel anxious to get a jump on the planning process. Naturally, selecting the color palette can solidify your plans and help you make decisions about vendors later on.

If you are looking for inspiration or don’t even know where to start, we are here to give you the lowdown on 2021’s trendiest colors and how to incorporate them into your wedding.

Most Popular Wedding Colors of 2021

Golden Yellow

Do you want to make an impact? Select golden yellow for your wedding palette. Perfect for a luxurious and sumptuous wedding, this warm yellow is reminiscent of summer sunsets or European settings like the south of France or Tuscany.

Golden yellow works well for a wedding in any season, as it can be used with rich colors in the winter and on its own in spring, summer, or fall for maximum impact.

Use golden yellow as the star or an accent in your wedding bouquet, with flowers such as roses, dahlias, sunflowers, and ranunculus. Golden yellow pairs beautifully with every color under the sun, so it is easy to incorporate and give your wedding some warmth and individuality.

Light Blue

Blue has long held its place in weddings; however, in 2021, weddings are moving away from darker shades like navy or steel blue and leaning toward lighter shades like cornflower, powder blue, and periwinkle. You can still use navy, which makes a lovely dark contrast, as an accent color, but light blue is what’s hot for this year’s weddings.

The best part about this hue? Light blue can be used regardless of the theme or venue of your wedding. Envision a rustic barn, a lakeside afternoon, or even a stately ballroom for your event. Light blue fits beautifully in each setting.

If you want light blue to stand out at your wedding, it can be used on its own, either as an accessory or incorporated into your flowers, like irises, hydrangeas, and orchids. Pair it with yellow for a lovely spring or summer hue, or add some pinks and purples for a little fun.

Light Purple

Lilac and lavender are two wedding colors that we are eyeing for 2021 weddings. Light and airy, these colors are perfect for a spring or summer garden wedding, brunch nuptials, or a venue with lots of natural light that will allow the true hues to shine.

Use the namesake flowers of lavender and lilac, along with delphiniums, pale purple roses, sedum, zinnias, and calla lilies, to make a whimsical bouquet. Add some stems of deep or bright purple to make the bouquet really stand out.

Lilac and lavender are beautiful colors for bridesmaid dresses, bridal accessories, grooms wear, and decor—offering a more sophisticated vibe than the favorite from the last few seasons, blush pink.

Green

Greens of many colors pop up in wedding palettes for 2021, but instead of sophisticated, deep jewel-toned green, the favorites are brighter and more playful.

Anything from avocado green, mint, leaf, and even sage are showing up, and why not? Green pairs perfectly with so many other colors, so it is easy to use it as your wedding’s main color and throw flowers of one or two different colors to create a breathtaking bouquet of (mostly) greenery.

Green works in any venue and is lovely in any season. You can use olive, pistachio, or moss green for a bohemian look, while Kelly green or any other brighter shade complements a fun wedding aesthetic.

Orange

Bohemian or rustic weddings are still the rage, and that means that orange has had a comeback. However, orange can be used in a variety of ways to make your wedding palette pop.

While burnt orange or rust are great colors, the new trends are moving to cantaloupe or papaya orange. This color looks great with mint, lime, turquoise, or watermelon pink and will give your wedding a happy vibe.

An orange-themed wedding is vibrant and youthful and would be great for a beach wedding, a sunset cruise, or other summer events. Orange flowers are plentiful, and you may choose from stems like roses, tulips, and dahlias, and you and your florist may even decide to add some kumquats to your bouquet.

Neutrals

We know some brides will be unhappy with all of the bright colors gracing the weddings of 2021, but fear not— neutrals are ultra-trendy, too!

Choose from taupe, nude, gray, ivory, buff, beige, and cream to decorate, dress and design your wedding.

These colors pair with anything and will suit virtually any venue, so if you have an elegant ballroom reception, neutrals can enhance the sophistication of your event. On the other hand, neutrals are eye catching in an outdoor setting as well.

Suit your wedding party in neutral shades, and use neutrals in your decor and floral arrangements to keep with the monochromatic look.

Throwback to the ’90s Wedding Palette

While not necessarily one color, we couldn’t resist including the fun and unique wedding palette of the 1990s.

Fashion trends seem to come full circle, and we are seeing a similar cycle when it comes to weddings. A nod to the 1990s wild and exciting wedding colors is being featured in the most fashion-forward weddings of the year. Think of colors like fuchsia, teal, purple, royal blue, cherry red, and yellow.

The fun part is that most people will not have seen a wedding palette quite like this, and it is the perfect way to break free from boredom and the expected.

This trend is not about monochrome—use a few colors to create a fun palette reminiscent of that decade. You might be thinking it is a bit flashy for a wedding, but consider a fun neon sign with your new name adorning your wedding venue. Or, perhaps you would rather decorate with an array of flowers in bright colors.

As for bridesmaids’ attire, a neutral dress with a pop of bright color is great if you want to keep things on the subtler side. However, bridesmaid gowns in shocking colors will be unexpected and lively!

These colors can be used in any season and venue but fit perfectly at a wedding in a chic restaurant, event space, or hotel.

Your Wedding Day

When you decide on a wedding theme, it can help to draw inspiration from other places, like your wedding gown.

As the bride, your wedding colors should enhance your bridal gown rather than detract from it. For instance, if your wedding gown style is simple and chic, try using greens to create lush and lavish floral arrangements and decor. A fun and playful wedding gown calls for your choice of bright color trends.
