If you’re still searching for ‘The One’, then have you wondered what 2016 has in store for wedding gown trends? Sumptuous fabrics return, beautifully ornate back detailing,
dramatic fits & flares, layers of intricate lace and you’ll find more subtle pops of colour on the rails with blush, almond and whisper grey shades.
We asked a cross-section of our Bridalwear advertisers to tell
us which one gown they felt epitomises their 2016 collections, and why:
Get ready to fall in love with this vintage-inspired wedding
dress from our Stella York bridal gown collection (below). The lace shoulder straps and
sweetheart neckline perfectly frame the face, while the lace racer-back
detailing will make every exit as beautiful as your entrance.
This gown (below) is from the new Opulence 2016 collection by
Romantica of Devon. Lace is still a leading choice by our Brides-to-be but also
are stunning backs & straps.
From our Mori Lee collection. A form fitted bodice sharply
contrasts layers of cascading ruffles that drape beautifully to create a bold,
dramatic skirt. On this unadorned gown, the silhouette is everything. Covered
button detail accents the back.
Our favourite dress for 2016 is a Mori Lee gown, style 1964 below,
we love it because it’s a traditional style with the lace bodice and full skirt
but has a modern edge with the gorgeous beading detail around the sweetheart
neckline which makes this very elegant and classy yet still has that fairytale
look most brides dream of for their wedding day.
This breathtaking Lillian West gown (below) gives the fit and flare
look we’ve been asked for thought the year, shoulder cover with a keyhole back
and that all-important red carpet glamour.
For us it is the Alouette design by Sophia Tolli. A heavily
beaded fit and flare design in a stunning almond colour.
We love the fairytale ‘Orleans’ by Ronald Joyce (below) featuring a
ruched bodice with V back, embellished waistband and full satin skirt.
