Alessandra Rinaudo wedding dresses are taking the world of weddings by storm. Let’s cover her 2017 collection, who she designs for, how much do her designs cost and where to buy them.

Plunging necklines, sensual backs, feminine and perfectly defined lines with an impeccable cut are the trademark of Alessandra Rinaudo wedding dresses. From the most suggestive and vaporous ones to the elegance of lace, they distill her passion for fashion, quality of design and perfect choice of fabrics.

While her designs are jaw-dropping by anyone’s standard, she perfectly balances glamour with class and “wow” factor. This is perfectly demonstrated by her backless dresses, her flawlessly-placed embellishments and use of lace and a figure-enhancing silhouette. Need we say more?

Are You an Alessandra Rinaudo Bride?

The Alessandra Rinaudo bride is classy, glamorous but above all, she is the protagonist. Alessandra Rinaudo wedding dresses always highlight the natural beauty of the bride with unique designs and extreme attention to detail.

An Alessandra Rinaudo bride may have a special affinity for backless dresses. Many gowns in the collection let the bride bare skin completely or through open lace patterns.

Any bride will feel chic and romantic when wearing a Rinaudo design brimming with classic Italian style and modern-day elegance.



Alessandra Rinaudo Wedding Dresses 2017 Collection

Elegant, classic and beautiful are all words to describe the collection by Italian wedding dress designer Alessandra Rinaudo for the Nicole Spose bridal collection. Modern Wedding called Alessandra’s collection for 2017 a “masterpiece of Italian style and taste, based on elegance, research, and tradition”.

The Alessandra Rinaudo wedding dresses 2017 collection features her incredibly stunning and surprising backs that have become a trademark detail in her designs as well as those perfectly balanced trains that complement brides’ figures so well.

Princess gowns, her famous mermaid silhouettes can be found adorning the designer’s groundbreaking line. Alessandra’s use of Italian silk, French lace and delicate satins, gives them a soft and romantic feel.

Alessandra Rinaudo Short Wedding Dresses

Short designs can sometimes feel that they are missing the extra “oomph” that long dresses have. This is far from the case with an Alessandra Rinaudo design. What these dresses lack in length they more than make up for in beauty and elegance.

One particularly memorable design from her 2017 collection is a high-low dress like we’ve never seen before. The dress ends right about the knee with a trumpet silhouette that flows into a long, full train in the back. Topped with short capped lace sleeves and bodice makes for a classic dress with a fun twist.

Are you dreading that upcoming event because you have nothing to wear?  Never fear, ladies! You do not have to dust off that same old dress you wear year after year. We have your rundown of 2017 trends for chic and elegant cocktail dresses.

Long and Short Cocktail Dresses: 2017 Trends

Let’s take a look at what this year has brought to the runway and – hopefully – into our closets!

Long live geometric patterns! They re-define a confident look with exaggerated lines, pleats, drapes and volume. Crop top dresses were all over the runway this year, look for this cutting edge trend in bold prints and vibrant colors.

Metallics like deep blue with iridescent tones and bright colors like pink, bubble gum pink, deep cherry and soft pastel pink!

No matter long or short, the shimmery rose gold continues to dominate the market. Perfect for a variety of skin tones rose golds and blushes can easily balance out boxy geometric patterns.

The ball gown skirt is making a comeback! Many of these full skirt styles are paired with lace or sequined crop tops. The Illusion style is growing more popular by the day. These elegant cocktail dresses feature skin-toned material peeking out of lace or mesh. The backs of these evening dresses feature sheer materials and embellishments such as buttons or jewels.

The sparkle remains prominent as a 2017 trend, so let’s shine ladies! Short evening dresses in geometric patterns have all over beading that creates a shimmer. Long and sheer is popular with sequins tucked under the lace to give the wearer a soft glow. Minis are out. Those feeling a little more daring and futuristic can opt for sheath dresses covered in sequins or satiny metallic material.

Plus Sized Cocktail Dresses for Weddings: Les Chic Evening Gowns

Designers are getting it right for the plus sized cocktail dress in 2017. Full skirts are knee length or shorter and have waistlines that flatter your curves. Many evening dresses feature belts or draping in the “right” places.

We absolutely adore geometric patterns as they help draw attention to them and disguise a few problem areas. The illusion lace and mesh styles meet flowy features such as ruffles, bustiers, and empire waists allowing you to play with lines where you need them most.

Remember to leverage the little black dress. It will never go out of fashion and every woman must own at least one LBD dress. Ideally you should have several of these elegant cocktail dresses with different cuts and details. This season, the little black dress is recommended to us by many designers such as Dolce & Gabbana, Marchesa, and Osman.

Vintage Lace Wedding Gowns: Ethereal and Alluring

Who ever said lace couldn’t be sexy? These vintage-inspired creations are nothing like those lace dresses your grandma used to wear back in the day. Lace can be used to strategically cover (or to show) parts of your body. June brides that would rather not show off their arms, could consider a long sleeved lace wedding dress, light and airy. If you are shy about showing off some bare skin, allow lace to barely cover it and still tap into your inner sexy bride. If you are not, use and abuse lace to highlight your figure while surrounded in one of the most romantic and alluring of fabrics. 😉

Check out David Tutera’s 2017 collection and you’ll see what we mean. You are free to go overboard and daring as well if you like. Like we said earlier. It’s your day after all!

Plus Sized Sexy Wedding Dresses for the Modern & Curvy Bride

Most plus size brides’ initial thoughts are to cover up any areas of their body they do not feel comfortable with. It’s important for modern curvy brides to remember that their bodies are beautiful and enticing. Elegant sexiness can be achieved by picking the part of your body you are most proud of and highlighting it in a classy way. If you have great cleavage, try out a high waistline and low neckline dress. If your bum is your pride and joy, consider a mermaid or trumpet skirt. Check out these deliciously sexy wedding dresses we handpicked for plus-sized brides! It’s your day after all, and the more confident you feel, the sexier your light will shine.

So, unless you can afford to hire a wedding planner, organizing the whole shindig will fall completely on your shoulders. Do not despair, though! We are here to support you and remind you of details you may not have thought of with a wedding planning timeline we put together just for you!

Not all couples plan their wedding within the same timeframe. Although most of them fall in the 16-month, 12-month and 6-month wedding planning timeline. Therefore, we compiled wedding planning checklist for all of these timelines. If your wedding is, say, 8.5 months away, you may need to merge a few tasks into a shorter timeframe to come up with your very own planning checklist! 😉
