Wedding trends 2017: Stylish Bridesmaid DressesModern, stylish and trendy!

What are the top wedding trends of 2017? As a wedding photographer who has photographed hundreds of beautiful weddings, I can say that variety is a hot topic in 2017! From a wide range of wedding dresses to a huge array of pretty bridesmaids gowns, the weddings of 2017 are all about style and color galore.

Bridal party attire is often chosen as a reflection of the couple’s overall wedding style and theme, and I love seeing a huge variety of styles, colors, and textures.

As a wedding photographer, I love it when the bridesmaid dresses look organic and complement the wedding photography location and its surroundings. Are you having a boho-inspired wedding in the woods? Flowing, floor-length dresses with floral prints will photograph really well! Are you planning a chic city wedding on a hotel rooftop? Elegant, sleek-silhouette bridesmaid dresses will always look great in urban wedding photos.

The mix-and-match bridesmaid dress trend is very strong this year, and I see it evolving into something super fun and unique. From ombre colors to variations of a central theme (a roaring 1920s bash, anyone?) this bridal party style surely makes a statement and adds an interesting visual element to the wedding party portraits. For those who prefer a more traditional, uniform look there are all kinds of chic, streamlined bridal party styles that please everyone in the bridal party and look super sleek in wedding photos.

Whether you’re a boho-bride or a city glam girl, I’m sure you’ll get inspired by my collection of Top 10 Stylish Bridesmaid Dresses we have photographed that make up some of the hottest wedding trends in 2017. Enjoy!
