EXTRAVAGANT dresses with long trains and diamantes are just not Sunshine Coast brides' thing.
Forever Bridal & Formal owner Ronnie Gannon said ladies on the Coast opted for simple style dresses.
"At the moment brides are liking dresses with an illusion neckline which is a higher neckline and it can be either tulle or lace,” she said.
"They also like a skirt with not too much poof but enough so that's flattering.
"And here they always like the low back on dresses.”
Ronnie said Coast brides weren't so much a fan of glitz and glam.
"Coast girls are not very keen on a lot of bling, they're more about lace dresses with clear sequinning or clear beading. They hate silver beads and shiny sequinning even though that's trending overseas.
"They like natural laces, flower crowns and there's a bit of a trend around boho-type dresses and soft floatey skirts that lend themselves to the beach and are good for the weather.”
Ronnie said the grooms on the Coast also had a more laidback style about them too.
"The men are actually getting more stylish compared to a few years ago,” she said.
"They used to just hire the basic black or grey suit but now the trends to look after their beards and looks have overflowed into weddings and they are having more of an influence over what they wear.
"They like things such as vests and pants with suspenders and rolled up sleeves and aren't going for the full vest, tie, flower lapel and jacket look - they're keeping it more casual.”
She said they were being more adventurous when it came to wearing different colours too.
"They're getting a bit more funky and wearing more than just black and grey. They're doing the blues and also the more natural colours, especially if they're getting married near the beach.”
Ronnie said that those wanting to look good at their wedding didn't have to spend loads of money.
"We can hire a big range of suits instead of selling,” she said.
"And with the bridal we have an in-house seamstress to make the ladies dresses fit beautifully.
"A $500 wedding dress that is fitted well is always going to look better than a $2000 dress that hasn't been fitted.”
