NYB&G Celebrates Bare-Shoulder Romance

The warm atmosphere of New York Bride & Groom’s modern luxury salon invites to to check out the latest bridal trends, without an appointment. If you are on the hunt for a unique and modern wedding gown, we are your one-stop shop. The Meghan Markle effect has swept the industry and off-the-shoulder wedding dresses are in high demand. We love how this bridal style offers a romantic touch to any wedding dress. Demure shoulder straps come in a variety of styles to complete the off-the-shoulder silhouette. Bridal designers are ripe with lacy details, flowing chiffon or stiffer crepe bands and detachable sleeves to achieve timeless and contemporary takes on this bridal style. Discover more reasons why we love this sleeve design below:

The strapless gown has always been a classic, but now it’s facing some serious competition from the off-the-shoulder dress. Like the strapless cut, this style is also a pretty shoulder-baring look, but there’s something inherently more sexy and romantic about it in that it’s a delicate blend of both sassy and sweet. The trend is able to show off a hint of skin without having to bare it all.

It certainly made a bold statement on the fall runways, where designers were able to highlight its range and versatility by incorporating the trend into dresses of various silhouettes. They also played with the cut of the off-shoulder itself, featured in every style from a modern twist to classy elegance. And no longer is the off-the-shoulder gown a summer look only — off shoulders that fall into cascading long sleeves are a gorgeous choice for a fall or winter wedding.

The fit-and-flare silhouette is extremely flattering on many body types. Discover more below:

Fit and Flare

The fit and flare style is similar to the A-line style, as the cutting of these dresses are similar, although the fit and flare style is more form fitting. Under the fit and flare style, there is the Mermaid style and the Trumpet style.

Both the Mermaid and the Trumpet style are more sensual as the top of the dress hugs the body while the bottom flares out closer to the body. The difference lies in how the Mermaid style flares out at knee length while the Trumpet style flares out at mid-thigh.

The Mermaid style creates the illusion of a fuller hourglass figure, which makes it best for brides that wish to accentuate their curves. However, if you intend to move around a lot on your wedding day (to dance), this style of dress may not be the best for you, as it does not allow much movement.

The Trumpet style will be more suitable for you if you have an hourglass figure, as the top part of the dress will hug your waist closely. If you have a pear or apple-shaped body, this style may not be ideal for you, as it will draw attention to your stomach and hip area. Z Wedding has more on great wedding silhouettes

To Sleeve Or Not To Sleeve…That Is The Question

The trend of detachable wedding dress sleeves is exciting and versatile. Brides seeking multiple looks for their ceremony, reception and wedding photos will love taking advantage of all of the striking possibilities! Enjoy a strapless look for part of your day and coordinate your wardrobe update seamlessly. NYB&G celebrates hand selected designs specifically for the modern bride. Discover more great inspiration on how to create multiple looks for your wedding day without purchasing two separate wedding gowns below:

Other ideas to create a convertible two-in-one look for your wedding day include adding on accessories. Perhaps you want to remain a little more conservative for the ceremony but be able to let loose for the reception. You could wear a sweetheart strapless gown and layer it with a lace topper, fur bolero or beaded capelet to add a little more cover to your arms and decolletage. These add-ons can easily be removed (or added) between the ceremony and reception to switch up your look, and are generally less expensive than purchasing two separate gowns.

So whether you want two completely different bridal looks that include two separate wedding dresses, or if you just want to add on or remove layers between your wedding and reception, there are options to switch up your wedding day look that suit any size budget.
