Whether it's sleek and sheer, or beautifully detailed lace, an illusion bodice is a huge wedding dress trend for 2016. The look is so feminine with a sweetheart neckline, and the long sleeves and all-over lace make it the perfect dress for a formal spring wedding.
The vintage-inspired trend is still going strong both in bridal fashion and reception decor. From intricately beaded dresses, vintage lace, and tea length dresses; there are plenty of different vintage-inspired wedding gowns to pick from. For vintage with a modern spin, go with a sexy strapless tea length dress. Pictured: Milamira Bridal Luna Gown
A lot of brides are opting for knee-length wedding dresses or less-formal evening gowns; and there were even some bridal pant suits on the runways this year. This doesn't necessarily mean the trend is for the wedding ceremony. With the rise in boutique bridal photographers, stylish brides are picking out additional wedding looks for their receptions.
While smaller ruffles aren't a big trend in wedding gowns next season, we're going to see a lot of tiered organza skirts on ball-gown type wedding dresses. It's a light and airy version of the ballgown that is perfect for a spring or summer wedding if you're looking for a princess-style dress.

The sheer skirt trend is something people tend to love or hate. It came back on the scene several years ago at a few awards shows then completely exploded when Kim K and Beyonce both wore the trend to the Met Gala. As for a wedding dress, this trend is best reserved for a beach wedding. Pictured Above: A-Line/Princess Sleeveless V-neck Lace Court Train Wedding Dress
3D flower applique is perhaps one of the biggest bridal trends for spring 2016, as it was seen both in the new bridal collections as well as on the spring/summer 2016 runway shows. Other bridal trends for next spring include feather details, plunging necklines, and high slits. And despite the recent rise in two-piece dresses and modern fashion, for bridal gowns in 2016, it's all about the feminine and romantic details, just as it should be.
