However, with so many styles, fabrics, designs and options to select from, figuring out where to begin can be overwhelming.

This will help you hone in on details that you may want to incorporate in your gown. Here are a few of the top bridal dress trends for 2017. 

High Necklines

Dresses that grazed the breast line or accentuated a women's assets have been trendy for several years now. And while plunging necklines are still popular, one of the trends this year departs away from this. High necklines are predicted to be trendy this year. They help a woman cover up and look modest, all while elongating her body and drawing attention up to the bride's face. Many well-known wedding dress designers, such as Romona Keveza, Vera Wang and Naeem Khan showcased this style dress for their 2017 runway shows.

Off the Shoulder Dresses

Another bridal dress trend that is expected to be extremely popular this year is off the shoulder dresses. Dresses that hang off the shoulders have a romantic, classic look and feel to them. These dresses are often princess style gowns, helping to make the bride feel like a princess. These dresses help to accentuate the shoulders and the neckline of a bride and can be dressed up or down based on the wedding. Popular wedding dress designers such as Vera Wang and Marchesa showcased off the shoulder dresses for their 2017 runway shows.

Boho-Style Dresses

The last trend that is expected to be popular in 2017 is Boho-style dresses, also referred to as Coachella dresses. Bohemian or hippie-style clothing has been popular for a few years now, so it is no surprise that we are seeing this move into wedding dresses. Many boho-style dresses are made from lace, chiffon or other fabrics that have a lot of movement and flow to them. They may have bell-sleeves, flowy skirts or flowery, natural elements to them. Rue De Seine is a wedding dress designer who focuses on this niche and is one of the designers you should check out if you are interested in this style of gown.

On your wedding day, you will be photographed over and over in the gown of your choosing. These photos will last for the rest of your life, so you want to select a gown that looks beautiful on you and represents who you are. Looking at bridal dress trends can help you decide what elements you may want to hone in on when you begin to shop for your bridal gown.
