While gemstones and sequins are the embellishment of choice for 2016, dress designers have incorporated lots of miniature dots into 2017 collections.

From ‘itsy bitsy teenie weenie’ polka dot print to more dramatic spots, there’s lots of different takes on the trend. Here are a few of our favourites…

Ball gown

Polka dots give traditional ball gown wedding dresses are more modern edge.

We love the barely-there subtly of the spots on the Eugenia Couturee style below.

Drop waisted

The drop waisted silhouette adds feminine curves to a boyish figure, and is also a fantastic option for fuller figured brides as it hugs you in all the right places and balances out the figure.

Empire line

The empire line dress will accentuate a tiny waist and slender upper body, by cinching in under the bust while skimming over the tummy, hips and bottom. The style is particularly flattering for pear-shaped brides – make a serious fashion statement with a dotty one.

Short

If this week’s glorious sunshine isn’t reason enough to consider going for a short wedding dress, check out these spotty beauties.

Sheath/column

If you are not sold on spots, round beads create a similar look; see the Sherri Hill style below.  Or opt for a circular-shaped floral pattern – the bodice on the Costarellos dress (pictured second from left) is actually made up of flowers although it looks like polka dots from a distance.
