Review of Wedding Dress Trends for 2016


Wedding dress doesn’t require too many additions to really stand out when a classic style can match the bride in the best way possible. The bateau necklines we saw at Oscar de la Renta, Veaul Wedding Dress, Kelly Faetanini, Maggie Sottero, Amsale and Lela Rose all had classy outlines but with a very sexy fit.

The V Neckline

Not as shy as a sweetheart neckline but not as open as a dropping one, the delicate deep-V bodice seen at Maggie Sottero, Reem Acra, Oscar de la Renta, Anne Barge and Christos accompanies the dress with a touch of drama.

Blush-Colored Dresses

A hardly there pop of color is perfect for your spring wedding. Tones of pink and rose were seen all over the runways, but we fell in love with the blush tones at J. Mendel, Jenny Packham, Houghton, Pamella Roland and Romona Keveza.

Cropped Tops

A mixture of casual and beutoful, there’s something exceptionally stylish about a bride showing off just a slice of skin on her wedding day. We experienced it done right at Mira Zwillinger, Reem Acra, Elizabeth Fillmore, Victoria KyriaKides and Theia.

Feather Finishes

Whether they were huge, dark and dramatic, like at Vera Wang, or soft, fluttery and gentle, like at Amsale, the feather plays at Bridal Fashion Week were spectacular. We also  in love with the ostrich feather skirts at Lela Rose and Kelly Faetanini, but the flowing bodice effect at Jenny Packham was our favorite.

Floral Prints

While florals for spring may not be revolutionary, floral-print wedding dresses are very intriguing. Whether done as complex sewing, like at Carolina Herrera, or painted onto fabric, like at Romona Keveza, bridal blooms are definitely trending — just look at Elizabeth Fillmore, Houghton and Naeem Khan.
