We’ll soon be welcoming in a New Year and that means some new (and old) trends will surface in the wedding world, especially when it comes to the fashion. One may think that wedding gowns tend to pretty much “stay the same,” and in a sense, they do! But it’s all in the accents. It’s all in the shaping and texture. And now, it’s all about the colors too!
Before you dive into wedding dress shopping, take a peek at the trends that are hitting the runways. You’ll grab some inspiration and maybe even a few new ideas for what you’re looking for. You may even get a hint or two about what you want on your bridesmaids!
Luckily, we’ve rounded up 6 trends to spot and the gorgeous gowns that represent them. Scroll through, take some mental notes and start dreaming of your perfect wedding day look by the end.
Enhanced Floral Appliques
The trend lies in more than just floral appliqués, but ones with a 3-D life. These accents provide texture, interest and uniqueness creating a couture look and feel to any design.
Whether it’s on a cocktail length, floral appliqué-covered reception or destination gown or on a full-length design, off-the-shoulder necklines are in and they’re quite romantic too. They add a vintage essence and very feminine feel to all silhouettes.
Color is still in, especially those blushing tones that provide an elegance and fairy-tale storyline. And we love how so many of these gowns are mixing these unique 2016 wedding trends into one showstopping design.
Deep, plunging necklines and keyholes are another top trending wedding gown accent for the upcoming season. Sexy but done in a sweet sophistication, these deep V’s fit right into modern fashion.
Tulle and chiffon overlays are also calling all 2016 brides. They create volume, drama and an elegance as you walk down the aisle. We love the innovation behind these looks!
One of the most surprising trends are feathers! Who knew these eclectic accents could look as beautiful as they do on these runway pieces? From skirts to the bodice, this texture is full of youth and fun.
