This October, the Spring 2016 New York Bridal Show featured lots of fresh new trends for the upcoming year. If you’re planning a Spring Wedding, or are simply starved for ideas, then sit down and get comfortable, because we’ve got it all here.
Add a little bit of drama…
1) Fabulous Feathers
Whether it’s a bit of delicate detailing on the bust, a feathery hemline, or a full skirt of plumage, you’ll be perfectly on-trend with this look. Bring some fun to your wedding, and let these playful dresses brighten your day.
2) Move Over Movies
Floral appliqués have been a bridal staple for some time, but the new 3D embellishments that hit the Runway in New York have modernised what once seemed overdone. These new additions will add texture, volume and depth to your gown to make it truly unique.
3) A Splash of Colour
The day of the dominant white-coloured gown has gone well and truly the window. So if you feel like adding a little more vibrancy to your wedding day, then take a look at the colourful prints (yes, prints!) that have bloomed this season.
Everything is Taking Shape…
4) Bateau Neckline
Now to reel things back a little, because a dress doesn't need lots of embellishments to truly stand out. Bateau necklines are in high demand, offering a sophisticated silhouette, coupled with a sexy fit.
5) The Overlay
Feel too mature to be fantasising about a princess dress, but still secretly want to wear one? Well the overlay is your answer, placing a bit of theatrical volume over a minimalist column. This look is the ultimate bridal version of having your cake and eating it too.
6) Elegance Elongated
Since Kate Middleton rocked it at the Royal Wedding, we’ve seen this trend storm its way back onto the runway. This silhouette leaves more to the imagination and is a great option for those that still love the traditional, but want to remain in style.
7) The Big Reveal
On the other hand, if leaving things to the imagination isn’t your style, you’re going to love this one. It started with the plunging neckline, but now it’s really time to show off your bodies, ladies. Whether it’s cut outs, illusion panels or a fully backless dress, the rule is: if you’ve got it - flaunt it!
8) Time to Get Suited Up
Whether it’s Jumpsuits like the one worn by Solange Knowles at her wedding, or the two-piece suits worn down the runway, wearing the pants in the relationship is a big trend for 2016.
9) Let’s Keep Things Separate
If you’re already planning on having two dresses for your wedding and reception, just imagine the possibilities if you had FOUR separate pieces to play with! This new trend is totally chic and though separates normally coincide, you could mix styles, colours and textures to your heart’s content.
10) Short But Sweet
Peter Copping sent not one, but four little white dresses down the runway for Oscar de la Renta, and you too can show off your legs as you skip down the aisle. It doesn’t have to be sweet and girly, however, just take a look at this sexy retro number…

New shoes, old shoes - pretty shoes in particular - can cause chaos, especially on your wedding day when foot cramp and loss of balance are the last things you need. Does stumbling down the aisle sound like your own personal nightmare come to life? All...
It’s no surprise that brides-to-be want to look their very best on their wedding day, and although getting the dream dress right is vital, other factors are important to take into consideration too. You want to look perfect from head-to-toe! That...
A wedding is full of big decisions, but arguably the most important single item is the wedding dress. Deciding whether to go for a simple design or a fuller, 'flouncy' number and choosing strapless or sleeved can take a lot of research and pond...
Since Amal and Solange wore jumpsuits on their wedding day (admittedly Amal had more than one wedding outfit), jumpsuits have become more and more popular with brides. Comfortable yet elegant, modern, fresh and chi to boot, they definitely make won...
After a long mild summer, we’ve seen the weather take a sudden turn for the worse! And although romantic and atmospheric, weddings in the colder months can be rather chilly for the bride as well as the guests, so I’ve put together some idea...
