Bridal Trends for 2016

Trends…there are so many trends and everything is always ever changing, why would weddings and bridal attire be any different at all? While it has been the trend to recreate something that may have been seen on Pinterest, or copying the ‘Royal Wedding,’ wedding trends are making some big changes coming into the new year. You can expect to see more weddings that are offering timeless looks, but keeping positive experiences for your guests whom are attending as well.  Destination weddings were extremely popular in 2015. However we see new trends coming along for 2016. 

What's Trending in 2016


Ambiance and Lighting (Dreamy)

Music from your Hometown (if destination wedding ins chosen)

Flowers from the season and the region/or perhaps none at all!

Buttercream Cakes (oldie but a goody)

These are to just name a few topics to consider. But what about the blushing bride? What is she going to wear? There are some hot bridal gown/spring fashion ideas to keep a close eye on and those include:

3D – Floral Appliques

Long-sleeve, lace sheath accompanied by metallic thread

A-Line Cocktail cut – or Knee Length A-Line

Hand beaded bodice with a softer flowing tulle skirt

Soft Neckline full length A-Line

The trends listed above all would have floral appliques throughout. But it seems the up and coming trends for the bridal gowns are softer, more flowing pastels and creams versus the traditional white solid dresses that are embellished.

Of course it is going to be your special day and you can have everything however you envisioned. We created this article just to give you some ideas.  We have seen that non traditional weddings are growing in popularity.
