There used to be a time when just about every bride you saw was wearing a strapless gown. Straps were out and brides were going crazy for the strapless trend. Now times have changed and what was once considered old-school has become a hot trend again. From shining tennis bracelet straps to exquisite illusion straps and everything in between, brides are once again falling in love with having straps on their wedding gowns.
You might be asking yourself why straps have suddenly resurged again. One answer could be the variety of styles now available. My personal favorite is illusion or lace embellished straps. Style 4452 from the Wind Upon Water Collection has the most romantic lace embellished cap sleeve/strap combo that makes my heart simply flutter! Style 4718 from the new Dream Collection also has gorgeous swirled straps that lead into a breathtaking embellished illusion back. How could you not want to wear something so exquisite?
Another reason why straps have gained in popularity again could be the convenience and flattering nature straps have! With straps a bride need not worry about constantly adjusting her gown while getting down out on the dance floor. It can also help flatter arms if that is a trouble spot. Bustier women also find gowns with straps a better option when it comes to keeping “the girls” lifted and in place.
With so many new wonderful options to choose between combined with practically no downside, it is easy to see why straps have become the popular option with brides again. Often combined with lovely sleeves or part of a fabulous neckline, straps are making a marvelous comeback and we are completely here for it!
