Bridal week has come and gone and everyone is better for it. Lucky 2016 brides will have no shortage of inspiration and gowns galore that will make you say 'I do'! Here are some trends to keep an eye out for during your hunt for THE dress.
Grandma won't be mad about you going nude on your big day with this Reem Acra number. Shades of nude flatter almost every skin tone, and looks exceptionally elegant against a big white bouquet. For added 'wow's, adorn with 3D flowers or intricate applique .
SHORT + SWEET SLEEVES
Here's to hoping short sleeves become a lasting bridal trend the way pockets have. They say "hey, I'm here to look elegant but I also want my shoulders to be slightly warmer". Sleeves are absolutely adorable and just give you another excuse to try out that stellar illusion neckline dress you've been creeping on.
I feel like we all owe Amal Clooney a big hug for this trend. 2016 will be a big year for the pantsuit and dress shunners alike!
FLORAL PRINTS (BECAUSE IT'S GROUNDBREAKING)
This bride proves that you can go way left field with your gown choice and still maintain chic bridal status. If you're looking for a statement dress to wow your loved ones, set your sights on some new and amazing pieces by Houghton, Theia, and Naeem Khan.
