LOW AND OPEN BACK
Flash a bit of skin and don an open-backed dress on the day you tie the knot. Delicate lace patterns can adorn the beautifully tailored low-back cut, so you can walk down the aisle in style.
Another tasteful way to show a hint of skin on your wedding day is to slip on a dress with strategically placed cut-outs, typically on the waist area. This 2016 wedding dress trend was seen multiple times during the New York Bridal Fashion Week. What’s truly great about cut-outs is that they lend a slimming effect, provided they are placed properly.
Pretty cropped tops are the staple for non-traditional brides of 2015. Bridal wear featuring cropped tops normally come with superbly done lace detailing and are paired with full ball skirts or airy, minimalist ones.
Intricate and drop-dead gorgeous, Baroque-inspired patterns on bridal gowns are going to show up in 2016. If you only want a hint of Baroque detailing, you can limit it along the hem or the bodice of the dress.
Your wedding dress can be your “something blue.” Expect bridal dresses to display a hint of color, a daring breakaway from the traditional white. Wear a silver, bluish gray, purplish gray, or blush-colored wedding dress. There are even breathtaking pistachio-hued Monique Lhuillier bridal gowns! Or opt for a white one with colored detailing such as a jeweled bodice flecked with silver bling or rose gold accents.
Add drama to your wedding dress with layers upon layers of fabric. Ruffles are a huge trend for 2016. For your fairy-tale-inspired wedding, a voluminous bridal gown made modern by the addition of wispy ruffles would have been most welcome.
An elegant, long-sleeved wedding dress is most perfect if you are tying the knot during the cooler months of 2016. Sleeves of delicate or naked lace, as well as sheer and slinky netting, are the in-thing for bridal wear.
