The 2016 Bridal Collections left us speechless! Just when I thought wedding dresses could not possibly get any more gorgeous, designers like Galia Lahav Bridal Couture, Inbal Dror, Elbeth Gillis (our very own South African Haute Couture wedding dress designer who is taking the global bridal industry by storm!), Vera Wang, Berta Bridal and Mira Zwillinger brought out collections that are simply put, Enchanted! 

The Spring 2016 Bridal Collections are not only fairy-tale like but are most certainly fit for any princess. Wedding dresses boast layers of mixed fabrics with hand-embroidered lace, Swarovski crystals, delicate beads and layers of tulle.

What makes these bridal gowns different from the traditional ball gown wedding dresses is that the designs feature plunging necklines and very low backs. Features which show off and celebrate the female form. Inbal Dror's Venice Collection is magnificent and varied (she is definitely one of our favourite designers this season and judging by the response she received this year at the launch of the Spring 2016 Bridal Collections, I am not the only now who thinks so!
