2017 Bridal Trends

December 22

Every new year brings new bridal trends, and as we go into the holidays to celebrate family, traditions, and all that 2016 brought, we thought it would be fun to look at a few of the trends that will be seen in the upcoming 2017 bridal collections. There are so many to love, but we thought these might some of the more interesting and fun ones to showcase!

The ultimate feminine chic detail, bows are back! We'll be seeing bows incorporated into stunning backs of gowns, as well as sleeves! 


We swooned over metallic with the rest of the bridal world when it was introduced heavily with bridesmaids collections, but seeing it in bridal collections brings it to a whole other level! This stunner from Watters is sure to be unforgettable-either in rosegold or ivory!

Tiers & Vertical Ruffles
A favorite of the 2017 collections is most definitely texture! Tiers and vertical ruffles is how this trend will play out in soft and dramatic designs, making it a look for a variety of brides!

Watters & Wtoo Spring 2017 Trunk Show

December 8

One of our BHB traditions is to end our year with one of our favorite & most highly anticipated trunk shows, the newest collections of Watters & Wtoo! The Spring 2017 line includes textures and details that make for the most incredible movement in a gown, lace details and patterns so unique, you'll remember why you love lace so much, and a myriad of fabrcis from soft tulle to lush satin to silky taffeta that every bride will find a gown for her own, unique style. These beauties aren't in shops yet which is why we're so excited to have a preview trunk show of the beautiful collection! They will be arriving at the shop on December 16th and will be with us through the 31st! You won't want to miss this show, and appointments will go quickly, so give us a ring at 281.681.3430 to schedule your appointment today or, if you prefer a more tech savvy method, simply click here!

BHB Real Wedding: Christy & Michael

November 17

Christy & Michael's wedding brought smiles to all of us as we looked through their beautiful pictures from Jonathan Ivy! We got the feeling that they planned for every detail (and masterfully so!) but by the time the wedding day arrived, everyone was focused on what mattered most-Christy and Michael marrying each other. Their love was palable and the setting was absolutely perfect. Christy's fitted lace Enzoani gown was the perfect compliment to the elegant waterfront Balmorhea venue in Magnolia, and she wore it so well! We were so honored and happy to be a part of the team of vendors that made Christy & Michael's wedding dreams a reality. Cheers to the happy couple-we wish you both so much happiness and love in your new marriage! 

The Collection: Evelyn Bridal

November 8

If you know BHB, you know how special and curated our collection of gowns is to us! We make sure the designers we carry offer our brides something uniquely beautiful while also passing a quite extensive checklist when it comes to fit, quality, custom changes, and so much more. That being said, there's always a celebration in the shop when we find an exciting new designer. Rest assured, this was definitely the case when we stumbled upon Evelyn Bridal in Chicago during market. Dreamy, etheral, and finished with such unique details, we knew it would be a perfect fit for the shop. This new collection is something for our brides looking for a traditional gown with a whimsical twist! Floral motif laces, intricate embroidery and hand beading make these gowns shine. We couldn't wait for our samples to arrive so we're having a special preview show from November 11th-19th! Give us a ring to schedule your appointment to see our new bridal beauties! We can't wait to meet you! 


BHB Real Wedding: Chelsea & Jay

October 25

We always say that our #BHBrides that choose a Claire Pettibone Romantique dress are pretty special because honestly, after seeing their pictures, we know that Romantique dress was made for them, and none other would have been just as perfect! This could not have been more true for one of our more recent brides, Chelsea. Working with her, her mom and best friend during her appointment was such fun, and we quickly realized how much of a Claire bride she was. She chose what happened to be one of our very favorites, Cheyenne, and we think you can tell from the pictures below, how absolutely perfect it was for her! Chelsea & Jay's gorgeous wedding took place at Gruene Estates in New Braunfels and was filled with such love and celebration. Chelsea & Jay, we wish you both all of the happiness in the world and hope this adventure is filled with love!
