The success of your wedding day will only become apparent in the smaller details of your big day. Whether it’s wowing your guests with the best hog roast Bolton has to offer or ensuring that the style of your wedding dress is bang on trend, it’s those details that your guests will remember and talk about long after the day has passed.
Your choice of wedding gown for your big day is an especially important detail. On that note, let’s take a look at some of the top wedding dress trends from Spring 2016 Bridal Fashion Week to provide you with some inspiration.
Dipped V Neckline
The slightly daring but alluring dipped V neckline was a frequent feature in gowns from top designers such as Oscar de la Renta and ReemAcra during the Spring 2016 Bridal Fashion Week. The perfect “happy medium” between sweet and sexy, the dipped V neckline adds a jaw-dropping element to simple style wedding dresses.
Crop tops have been a consistent feature in high fashion lines across the last 12 months and you can now expect to see this style becoming a key trend in wedding dress design. For those who dare to show a little skin on their wedding day, cropped tops and high-waist skirt combos can make for a chic and delightfully elegant look. If you’re looking for something a little different, a step away from the “norm” of wedding dresses, this look might be just perfect.
Feathers have always lurked about in the world of wedding gowns but in Spring 2016, feathers will be brought to the front and centre of wedding dress trends. From full ostrich feather skirts to bold, black feather gowns to more simple and delicate hints of fluttery feathers, fluffy finishes were a big feature at Spring 2016 Bridal Fashion Week.
Lace Upon Lace
When it comes to wedding dresses, lace will always remain a popular trend. On the Spring 2016 Bridal Fashion Week catwalks, one type of lace simply wasn’t enough. Top designers such as Angel Sanchez and Maggie Sottero used layers upon layers of lace in many of their wedding dresses that graced the catwalk. The level of detail in this particular look is simply stunning – apparently, there is no such thing as too much lace!
Take a trip back in time and try some Victorian-Esque wedding gowns on for size. Hints of the Victorian era were evident in several gowns during the Spring 2016 Bridal Fashion Week as brides strive to achieve a look of classic beauty on their big day. Think high necklines, lots of silk, lace sleeves, even flared lace sleeves and pearls of course.
Dare to ditch the idea of wearing a dress on your wedding day? If so, it looks like 2016 could well be the year of the wedding suits with Pamella Roland, Carolina Herrera, and THEIA all showcasing chic, cool wedding suits during Spring 2016 Bridal Fashion Week. Oozing style and simplicity, this is certainly a look that could catch on.
If you’re planning to walk down the aisle in spring or summer of 2016, choosing your wedding dress (*or suit!) just got a little more interesting! You may also like to read about Spring/Summer 2016: Bridal Hair and Make-Up Trends.
