What are the new wedding dress trends for 2016? One thing for sure is the strapless dress has evolved with new illusional necklines and off-the-shoulder straps. New fun styles have come into vogue with two-piece wedding dresses, new tulle skirts, capes and colour.

New necklines

High necklines are all over the runways at the moment. High illusion necklines are fun, flirty, romantic and give a sophisticated and sexy look. A great alternative to the strapless dress that has been a classic choice for many years. Similarly sheer magic body netting to look like skin with decorative embroidered or beaded overlays is very on trend. Its feminine, soft, classic and elegant. Don’t worry, deep v-necklines are still very much in fashion too.

Off-the-shoulder

If you still like the look of the strapless wedding dress, why not consider “off-the-shoulder”. You still have the all the seductiveness of the strapless, but with an added sassy look. All the top wedding designers are creating off-the-shoulder wedding dresses and the best thing about this design, is that it can be used with any silhouette, from mermaid to gown, empire and princess.

Two-piece wedding dress

For the ultimate modern bride, why not try bridal separates or two-piece wedding dress? This is a very unique and fun alternative to the traditional wedding dress and we love it.

Detachable tulle skirts

Another fun and very bohemian look is the detachable tulle wedding skirt. Designers are creating new looks with tulle, away from the ‘poofy’, ballerina look to something that is full of movement, yet simple and minimal. Maybe whip it off later and have a shorter fun skirt underneath for dancing the night away. Transparent skirts, with enough to maintain your modesty are also on trend. A subtle way of showing your off your legs.

Add some colour

A light, soft, pink, long, flowing, a-line tulle dress with fitted lace bodice is enough to make everyone melt. Beautiful, glamours and incredibly feminine. A hint of mint and grey are also the cool colours for this year.

Capes

Whether you want to cover up or add some detail, capes can add that extra dimension. From short decorative lace or sparkling appliqué to long and flowing, there are many designs to match your dress and create a different look.

Lace wedding dresses

Lace wedding dresses remain ever popular with that vintage, rustic and romantic look. Top designers still creating amazing lace wedding dresses. Use a lace bodice overlay with beads and crystals with a plain tulle skirt or add colour such as ivory, slate grey, rose or gold to give it a modern twist.
