Ursula Forrest - Wednesday, July 01, 2015

The Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 Bridal Collections have been launched and we are totally in love with these gorgeous new bridal collections. Just when we thought it was impossible for wedding dresses to get even more stunning, they have!


If you are planning a spring or summer wedding, the wedding dress trends for 2016 feature these key looks:

  • Enchanted Fairytale - full tulle multi-layered ballroom skirts and intricate beadwork on bodices
  • Plunging necklines, illusion necklines and backs
  • Daring and sexy sheath gowns 
  • Delicate mixed fabrics
  • Florals or floral patterns

Many of the newly launched bridal collections have clearly been inspired by an array of fairytale stories and enchanted childhood dreams of mystical love and magic. The Spring 2016 bridal collections can be summed up as romantic, feminine, beguiling and alluring. 

It was incredibly hard to choose which collections we love the most and we have tried our best to be as unbiased as possible. Having said that, there are a handful of wedding dress designers that without a doubt always leave us breathless and swooning for more! We hope you enjoy our selection of the top Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 Collections to inspire you for your wedding celebration in 2016.

Galia Lahav Couture - "Les Reves Bohemians" Spring 2016 Bridal Collection has been described as adventurous and daring. Intricate lace detail complements full tulle skirts. Plunging and daring necklines are softened by romantic, delicate lace and beadwork.  The wedding gowns are both enigmatic, romantic and sexy.
