A look into Wedding Dress Collections & Trends 2016

Fall is the season of new fashion collection presentations, and we always eagerly wait for it. Now it’s time to have a glimpse into the coming wedding collections for 2016, which strike us with their elegant simplicity and stylish attention to details.

Backless Wedding Dress

Designers give us a clear hint of this trend: collections are overflowing with luring open backs.  Although, unlike previous years, 2016 somewhat softens vivid sexuality by introducing lace inlays, embroidery and beading. Rosa Clara, Pronovias and Temperley London are big trendsetters here. Skirt styles remain a free choice: it can be either figure-fitting trumpet or mermaid as well as A-silhouette. Hair updo will only give additional zest to it, and the overall effect is inevitably elegant and alluring.

Dresses with Sleeves

After years when sleeveless bodices dominated bridal couture, sleeved dresses have made their return. Sleeves can be either short or long, but should always attract attention with subtle decoration or delicate fabrics. Upcoming styles feature long, sheer sleeves with beaded detail and short, capped sleeves in lace. If you’re after a timeless romantic look, this is something you should definitely consider.
Paolo Sebastian, Temperley London and Reem Acra bridal are among our favourites in this category.

Ballerina inspired airy skirts

Ballerinas have always been a symbol of grace, lightness and impeccable style. Many designers got their inspirations here, and it resulted in a choice of flowy skirts and zephyrous layers. Tulle, silk and organza run the show here, giving an ethereal appearance. You can then decide if you want to compliment this fairytale-like bottom with simple and clean bodice, or if you want to go for something more intricate, with lace and beaded embroidery.
Get inspired with our choice: En Pointe, Emily Riggs, Hayley Page.

Tinted dresses: blush, lavender and silver tones

Classic white tone has been giving way to its more lively competitors such as ivory and champagne for quite a long time now, but 2016 is settling a new rule for this game: brides can go for a wider variety of colors now. Shades of dusty blue, lavender and silver are most trendy in upcoming season. These whimsical pastels turn a bride into a heroine of old novel, setting a very romantic tone. Flirtatious and feminine look will definitely leave a groom speechless and all the guests charmed. Our favourites for the upcoming season are Emily Riggs and Jenny Packham.

Bohemian vibe

Having gained its popularity in small intimate weddings, boho is now making its way to hearts of the most glamorous and particular brides. Even the one and only Galia Lahav introduces it into her recent collection. Bohemian inspired dresses feature layers of classic lace, not just in the bodice but in the freely flowing skirts and intricate headpieces. The look includes loose, flowing cuts, dropped waists and layered skirts. Ribbons and beads add romantic detail. Long flowing locks and real flowers complement this Bohemian vibe well.
Anna Campbell’s design is a great example of this style.
