If there is an occasion for opulence, it’s your wedding day. Mesmerised by the shapeshifting silhouettes in dramatic sculptural beading that moved down the Fall 2017 Bridal Week runways we’re swept up in the idea that sometimes more, is more.
For winter weddings, look for demure sleeves and high neck gowns heavily encrusted in intricate beading, iridescent sequins and luminous pearls. For warmer climates choose artfully beaded gowns in dramatic plunging necklines and low backs paired with bold jewels and decadent drop earrings.
Our number one rule for opulent styling (both your gown or reception decor) is that decadence requires contrast, always. Ground the look in nonchalant hair and makeup. Think loosely tousled waves, dead straight blow outs or a sleek ponytail and finish with luminous barely there makeup.
