As a bridal boutique, we can’t help but notice all the wedding trends that are happening this year. Each of our brides comes into our store with an idea of what her dream wedding will be like. And we absolutely LOVE hearing all about their wedding plans.

After talking to, and serving hundreds of brides in the past few months, we’ve noticed some trends that have been sweeping the wedding world. Below are three wedding trends we love and think you will too.

A Hint of Color

This one is very dear to our hearts because so many of our brides this year have picked a wedding dress that had a hint of blush undertone to it. Our bride, Alyssa, wore our beautiful Maggie Sottero gown on her wedding day, and she looked absolutely GORGEOUS in it! The light blush undertone and tulle gave this wedding gown a soft and romantic look. Don’t you think?

While Bride and Groom first-looks have been popular for a while, we’ve noticed that many of our brides are also doing a first-look with their dads, moms, and even bridesmaids. We are loving all the beautiful reactions we are seeing from our brides’ families and friends when they see them in their wedding dress for the first time. If you’re a bride, have you considered a daddy/daughter first-look? Or maybe a bride/bridesmaids first-look?

Something Blue Monogram

We are really excited about this one! Here at Ashley Grace, we offer a complimentary monogrammed tag sewn into our brides’ dresses as their “something blue”. Our brides absolutely love it! It also makes for some amazing photos on their wedding day. We are beyond excited to be able to serve our brides in this way as well.
