When it comes to wedding dresses, it is all about the ‘look’. And not just any look, but the look that makes you feel like the star of the show. It is a dress that is one of a kind and that makes you feel confident, attractive and ready to knock the socks off your partner!
The trends for 2016 are some of the most diverse we have seen, so get ready to truly express your style in white this year according to Fashionista.com
Wedding Dress Trend 1: Details
3-D features such as sewn on flowers, beads and feathers are making for interesting artistic wedding dresses this year. These details are designed to stick out from the dress and create texture and movement. Long lace sleeves, considered rather traditional, are also back, but again are all about the lace details and put focus on the craftsmanship to make the bride stunning.
Wedding Dress Trend 2: Dips
Ultra low backs and even neckline plunges are really popular. This wedding dress trend of 2016 shows off much more skin. Peek-a-boo holes on the bodice give visual appeal while also flattering the bride with intricate lace details. Corset style wedding dresses and silky nighty type design also fall into this sexy category and are hot this year, especially in warmer weather weddings.
Wedding Dress Trend 3: Designs
Soft pastel watercolor designs and brush stroke designs are part of more non-traditional wedding dresses. They have a more earthy or ethereal feel as they float, bounce and sway in light, layered form. The brushstrokes add color that allow for unique floral bouquets that don’t complete. This design is also showing up in wedding decor trends including wedding cake design.
Wedding Dress Trend 4: Different
Some brides are choosing different dresses for different parts of the ceremony. A “little white dress” or even a bridal pant suit could be more comfortable options for rehearsals, receptions and parties than the more elaborate, bulky and dry-clean only wedding dress. Options give the bride the ability to wear different looks over the course of the bridal experience, rather than just the ceremony, allowing for more creativity and those ever trendy “action shots”.
