If you’re going to be tying the knot to the love of your life on a sun-kissed beach in Cyprus this summer, you may still be looking for the perfect outfit to wear to your wedding.
As the bride, there are a host of options out there – but we think some of the new trends emerging in bridal wear are ideal for Cyprus beach weddings.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, celebrity designer Mark Zunino gave his top picks of wedding dress trends for the coming year. Among them is dresses that feature a detachable overskirt.
The idea being that you can walk down the aisle in a ballgown, but remove the puffy skirt once the official ceremony is over to dance the night away with your friends and family (and new husband) in something a little more comfortable. If you’re having your wedding at the beach, this could help you tick the formal and relaxed boxes in one go.
Another top trend to watch is that of patterned wedding dresses, which work particularly well in non-traditional settings.
Zunino’s top tip is to keep the print delicate and have it on a white or pale background, so that you still keep the bridal feel.
Colour in bridal wear is growing in popularity too, with more and more brides picking pink or blush coloured gowns.
We also highlighted some of the top trends for bridesmaid outfits recently, which include the growing popularity of black bridesmaid dresses, and a shift away from dresses to separate skirts and tops.
