Herrera-brd-RS16-066

From plunging V-necks to feathery skirts and floral embellishments, these are a few of our favourite trends from the Bridal spring ’16 runway.

1 Floral accents
Sheer laser-cut petals, jewelled blooms and delicate flowers crafted from tulle and lace made gowns look modern (without losing the romance). The three-dimensional floral accents brought gowns to life on the runway.
2 Fancy feathers
Looking to add a whimsical element to your wedding dress? Feathers are definitely the embellishment to flaunt this season.

3 Embellished bodice
This year bodices go from the traditional right through to full-on illusion with ultra-sexy sheer tops with lace appliqués covering up just the right places. A romantic look with just a hint of intrigue.

4 Keyhole details
Ok, so you want a gown that has the elegance of a high neck but the sexiness of a plunging neckline? Say hello to the keyhole neckline!

5 Pretty pants
Calling all non-traditional brides: separates are making their mark this year. Think tailored tuxedos to a boho wide-leg pair of pants with extra lace. That’s right, dresses are no longer a must for your big day.

6 Plunging necklines
Yes, the deep (and deeper) V-neck isn’t only reserved for celebs on the red carpet. The revealing neckline took on multiple forms of sexy this season.

7 Sheer delights
The Sheer trend from last season is here to stay. See-through panelling creates a demure effect, which is perfect for the girl who wants to reveal just a hint of skin.

8 The princess effect
Seeking a gown fit for a Disney princess? Well, it doesn’t get more fun than a tiered skirt. Tons of tulle and organza are the magic ingredients for creating this ethereal look.

9 Mini dresses
Short dresses for a wedding? Mini-dresses have become an increasingly popular option, and can take you from the ceremony straight to the reception (no costume change needed!).
