Gown Guide

Styles for the Modern Bride Gown Guide 2017 | By Ronda M. Parag

Anglo Couture

T

The bridal gown sets the tone for the entire wedding and the runway showed some brilliant designs and silhouettes this year. There are options for every bride with a variety of choices regarding the train length, sleeve length, waistlines and fabrics. “The trends for 2017 are so gorgeous,” said Ashley DeMutiis, Regional Manager for The White Magnolia Bridal Collection. “Sleeves came back in last year, but it appears they are here to stay. We saw tons of sheer sleeves with lace or crystal detailing, and even some flowing bohemian style sleeves started walking the runways.” The 2017 Atelier Pronovias collection is full of floral inspired gowns, perfect for spring weddings. Delicate appliques and unique laces accent gowns of every shape and design. According to The White Magnolia Bridal Collection, another big trend is lots of sparkle. “Whether it be subtle or bold, glitter is at the top of many brides’ dress must-have lists this year,” said DeMutiis. Two-piece separates with crop tops and long flowing skirts are shown in multiple designer lines and a second dress is continuing to be extremely popular, so the brides can be comfortable and dance the night away at the reception. Designer Claire Pettibone’s Couture 2017 collection is inspired by nature and embodies vintage romance with a bohemian free spirit. “Two words we are hearing a lot right now are unique and romance,” said Megan Bubalo, owner of Malindy Elene Couture for the Bride. “Girls want something that stands out with an extra detail for the complete look. Brides are loving the unique heavier lace pattern mixed with the long trains, that add the romantic feel to any gown.” The garden, vineyard, rustic and vintage inspired weddings that have become so ubiquitous, showcase many of the Claire Pettibone’s creations. The gentle use of color, couture details, European laces and graceful embroideries, flutter and flow to make a woman look and feel like a goddess. “Another trend is the sheer details that have been appearing in many of our gowns,” said DeMutiis. “Cutouts overlaid with lace or other details are a classy way to show a little skin and feel sexy on your wedding day, without going too over the top. We are so excited for all the gowns coming soon to The White Magnolia and to see these trends come to life on our brides.” TBW

The beautiful stained glass windows at the church in Ybor City created a magical light for the ceremony.

Modern Springtime Wedding in Tampa The ceremony and reception of Ashley and Richard were filled with amazing details and cherished mementos designed and orchestrated by her mother, Valorie Bauer with Bauer Events. The couple were married at St. Lawrence Church by the same priest who baptized Ashley thirty one years ago. Ashley carried a rosary from her grandmother, who brought it over from Cuba when it was given to her, by her mother. The ring bearer pillow was made from Ashley’s grandmother’s wedding dress.

Reception Photos: The reception was held in the upstairs private room at Carmine’s in Ybor City, with the room completely transformed by Bauer Events and Extravaganza. From re-painting the walls to recovering the bench cushions, the reception site was visually stunning set up cocktail style with hi-tops and tapas food. Café string lights were hung across the dance floor and white leather furniture and sofas created conversation areas.

Wedding Checklist

Congratulations you’re engaged! Wedding bells will be ringing soon, but in the meantime it’s all about the planning. Here’s a helpful 12-month itinerary to make sure your big day goes off without a hitch.

10 to 12 Months This is the period of research and exploring, what kind of wedding do you want? Pretend you are a detective seeking the best of everything: style, venue, honeymoon, the works. ❑ Schedule engagement photos ❑ Mail out engagement announcements ❑ Set a date ❑ Meet clergy, especially if one of you is converting so you can start classes immediately ❑ Start making bride/groom guest list ❑ Decide on a budget ❑ Decide on indoor or outdoor wedding, be sure to keep in mind weather conditions for outdoor weddings and it’s always a good idea to have a backup plan ❑ Begin scouting locations for ceremony, reception and rehearsal dinner. ❑ Begin researching caterers, florists, photographers, musicians and bakers ❑ Make a list with fiancee of honeymoon destinations and songs for your first dance ❑ Decide on members of the wedding party ❑ Begin shopping for your wedding dress

7 to 9 Months Now it’s time to start narrowing things down. In order to have time for the details, it’s important to get some of the big stuff out of the way. ❑ Send engagement announcement to the local paper ❑ Order your wedding dress ❑ Decide on venue ❑ Choose clergy ❑ Choose your colors ❑ Take bridesmaids shopping for their dresses ❑ Take mom shopping for her Mother of the Bride dress ❑ Meet with florist and decide on flowers for venue, wedding party and reception ❑ Meet with caterer to decide on menu and schedule menu tasting ❑ Book photographer ❑ Meet with musicians to discuss play list ❑ Meet with travel agent about honeymoon ❑ Book reception venue and make deposit

4 to 6 Months Ok, take a deep breath and relax, but not too much. Look at all you’ve accomplished; now it’s time for the details. ❑ Finalize menu with caterer ❑ Finalize guest list ❑ Order wedding invitations ❑ Start shopping for wedding rings ❑ Make appointment with jeweler if want to custom design rings ❑ Meet with baker to view and taste cake options ❑ Order bridesmaids’ dresses ❑ Shop for and order fiancée and groomsmen tuxes ❑ Book honeymoon
