The Hottest Wedding Trends from Bridal Fashion Week Fall 2016

Bridal Fashion Week Fall 2016 did not disappoint, offering visions of lace, beadwork, appliques, and some very unique styles not seen anywhere else. Read on for all the details on this season’s top bridal fashion and prepare to be inspired and purely entertained as you take in the expectation-shattering creativity of the industry’s top designers.

Two-In-One Convertibles

In everyday fashion and bridal fashion alike, we are seeing more and more garments and gowns that offer two looks in one. Picture princess ball gowns turning into sleek sheaths, and A-lines becoming above-the-knee dresses. The convertible dress is a perfect option if you love the idea of having a more formal gown for the ceremony and a more party-ready dress for the reception. Your guests will be blown away at your transformation!

Double Slits

If you are looking for something sexier to dazzle your man, then you are getting married in the right season because double slit dresses are in. With two slits on either side of the dress that can go as high as you are brave, this style shows just the right amount of skin without being too flashy.

Sheer Beauty

Illusion garments and peek-a-boo cutouts can be seen both on and off the runway. Wedding gown designers are incorporating this trendy and gorgeous detail into see-through skirts with nude or lace underdresses, illusion skirts, illusion necklines and sleeves, and peek-a-boo glimpses of legs, thighs, backs, and even torsos. This trend will surely turn heads and leave a lasting impression.


Don’t think of high necklines and stiff bodices. The vintage-inspired dresses we’re seeing on the runway this season are all about romantic, dreamy designs, patterns, and gorgeous lace. If you love vintage style, you will gush over the long, flowy sleeves, lace appliques, and ornate patterns and details reminiscent of the ultra-feminine Edwardian era. This style can range from colored appliques to traditional white, and from formal and ornate to bohemian.

Multi-Piece Ensembles

Unlike the Victorian era, as beautiful as it was, brides nowadays can pretty much getaway with anything and feel confident going with a style that is as unique as themselves. If you don’t really connect to the ultra-formal style and feel more comfortable in something a little less gala and a little more everyday-you, the multiple-piece outfits may be perfect for you. The ensemble outfits ins this season’s bridal fashion week strutted down the runway in lace pants and tops, lace stockings and fur coats, and colorful coats and jackets more reminiscent of Jackie-O than blushing bride.

Lace to Latticework

This slightly geometric pattern is more unique than lace but still very romantic and feminine. The latticework can be big and bold for a more modern look, and it can be small and intricate with other ornate details for a vintage-inspired feel.

Wearable Art

Want something totally unique, unexpected, and museum worthy for your wedding gown? Then take note of the fashions in this season’s bridal week and consider your favorite artist when dreaming of your dress design. Designers are stepping away more and more from the all-white look and giving brides bright and rich colors and floral patterns that are as eye-catching as ever.

Lovely as a Pearl

Is it important to you to choose a more traditional style of dress without risking being too ordinary? Then a pearl-toned dress may be the perfect compromise for you. Pearl wedding gowns are being adorned with actual pearls and other sparkly details, and even come in pearlescent sheens. This look is one of the softest and dreamiest seen on the runway.

Flowers and Greenery

While there are many dresses this season designed with touches of floral appliques and even colorful floral patterns, other gown designers have taken this concept a bit further to create stunning pieces painted, trimmed, and embroidered in pinks and greens. For the total romantic bride, this trend is spot-on.
