The 2016 bridal fashion forecast offers a little something for everyone, with both a return to classic romantic dresses and a leap towards bold tones and daring designs. What does 2016 have in store for your wedding ceremony fashion?
Classic and Victorian-Influenced Designs
Royal and celebrity weddings continue to have their impact on bridal fashion. Lace overlays, bell sleeves, cap sleeves, and even dramatic, but delicate capes are featured in many of the latest styles.

It’s almost too much to imagine, but floral patterns are making a comeback. Barely-there hints of pale petals and “notice me!”, vibrant, high contrast designs are featured both in bridesmaid dresses and wedding dresses.
Feathers and Fringe
Speaking of the little extras, both feathers and fringe will add life to all types of dresses in 2016. Your wedding ceremony and reception decorations may reflect these popular and pretty textures as well.

Pale, blush tinted gowns are gaining on traditional options. Some are hardly indistinguishable from the off-white of the past, while others are brave, bright, and lively.
Necklines from Modest to Daring
The two most popular necklines forecasted for 2016 couldn’t be more opposite: the modest basic “bateau” neckline and the deeply dipping “V” are both at the top of the trends list. These can be combined with various sleeves and overlays to make the perfect gown for you.
We are truly excited about the 2016 fashion forecast. What’s your favorite trend?
