2016 is right around the corner and we are already excited about the new wedding season. Here’s what the bridal fashion gurus suggest for the happy brides of Spring and Summer 2016.
“Flowers on a wedding gown… how original” you might say but don’t be fooled. This season 3D flower appliqués whether oversized and bold or small and intricate, glitzy and glamorous or soft and romantic, will come forward and bring your wedding dress to life.
Illusions are here to stay and they are more transparent than ever! Resurrected by fashion icon and bride of the decade Kate Middleton, you have to love the soft finish and the elegance illusions bring to a dress. Whether across the neckline, the bodice or the back, illusions will give you just enough coverage that will keep grandma happy, and classy exposure with luxurious lace or sparkly details that hug the body. Keep in mind to stay away from transparencies in the bodice that leave the wires showing – they look dated and cheap!
Suits and overalls
Not a regular bride? Think dresses are overrated and boring? Whether you are too fashion forward or you just don’t understand why you have to be uncomfortable on your special day, ditch the dress and make a statement! Pants are gaining more and more ground on the runway and designers made sure to please all with designs to fit all wedding styles.
The crop top
Hands down our favourite trend of the season. Fresh and playful, this style has had its fair share of the red carpet and has finally hit the bridal runways. It complements most body types and sizes and will set the tone for a young and laid back wedding – Perfect for a summer destination wedding on a sunny Greek island.
