October is an exciting time in the world of weddings. We’re gearing up for engagement season, which is just around the corner, and that means it’s time for the latest couture wedding dresses to hit the runways as designers debut their Fall 2016 bridal collections. We saw many eye-catching and elegant styles on display, from ombré colors to off-the-shoulder necklines and lots of romantic lace. We also spotted a few wedding dress trends that stopped us in our tracks and could be seen across designers. If you’re getting married in 2016, take a look at some of these must-haves for your wedding day!
Dramatic Sleeves: From bell shapes to lots of lace and billowing fabric, big sleeves are back and perfect for a boho chic wedding day, perhaps perfect for your “I do’s” at Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa.
Colorful Flowers: If you’re a fashion-forward bride with a daring spirit, then consider celebrating in color with flowers cascading down your wedding gown! This fun and feminine (yet also formal) look would be stunning at an outdoor wedding at Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Montelucia.
Sheer Necklines: For the utmost elegance and to say “I do” in a formal setting like Omni Chicago Hotel, a sheer neckline is subtle, sophisticated yet still flirtatious. Whether cap sleeve, off-the-shoulder, or high neck, there’s a look for everyone with this special touch!
Stunning Backs: Dramatic backs are back, and that doesn’t mean you need to spend hours at the gym to don a bare back on your wedding day. Covered but detailed and intricate designs for wedding dresses will be a trend in 2016. So make a statement during your ceremony at places like Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort and wow all your guests from head-to-toe.
Capes: Feel a little like your head is in the clouds on your wedding day? Then you might walk down the aisle in an attached cape and you’ll be on trend for 2016. Elegant yet unique, the idea goes great in an indoor space like Hotel Omni Mont-Royal, where a long train can flow behind you high in fashion.
With so many new ideas for 2016 brides, we can’t wait to see what beautiful wedding dresses you will wear down the aisle!
