Bridal Fashion Trend: Iridescent Silver
Bridal Fashion Trend: Iridescent Silver

"Her mask was a weave of tattered shreds torn from all the beautiful parts of herself"

Inspired by an affection for the mythical and extending on our love of dresses that evoke a mermaid-esque mood (as seen in our latest bridal editorial Pushing Back the Dawn), for the girl drawn to oceanic romance we’re in love with textured bridal gowns in a magical palette of iridescent silver. 

A great alternative to a traditional white or ivory gown, the allure of this look is in its power to express a unique personal aesthetic. Bold, yet ethereal the shimmering fabrics will catch the light and evoke the magic of a silver full moon reflecting on a windswept sea.

Seen this season at the Tony Ward and Zuhair Murad couture shows and Jenny Packham Cruise, for the daring look for dresses that feature all over iridescent sequins, heavily embellished bodies, encrusted detailing, textured tulles and raw hems. Fitted silhouettes, fishtail skirts and long detailed sleeves also extending on the mythical mood. For a subtler, but just as beautiful take on this trend, opt for sleek satin gowns with decadent encrusted details and statement backs. Dresses from Johanna Johnson perfectly blend this trend with more of a timeless wearability. 

Worn best at a relaxed barefoot on the sand reception or a beautifully decaying venue, bold dresses like these require contrast and juxtaposition to ensure the look remains effortless, wildly magic and romantically disheveled. Channel a windswept, salty mood with tousled, slightly unkempt hair and minimal makeup with bronze tones.
