The dresses available in 2016 offer brides a perfect mix of on trend and classic; from crop tops paired with tulle skirts and gowns with colorful watercolor prints, to timeless lace ballgowns; there truly is something unique for every bride. We love that while fabulous new trends emerge every year, some tried and true bridal looks seem like they will last forever.
With so many incredible choices out there, you might be wondering where to begin! Well, not to worry, we've got you covered; in no particular order, here is our curated list of the top 16 wedding dresses you HAVE to try on in 2016!
From sweet to sultry, Maggie Sottero's new collection offers something for every bride. 'Luna' has us imagining its delicate scattered lace and tulle skirt floating prettily on a summer's breeze, and we are most certainly mesmerized.
Sottero & Midgley's 'Monaco' is ideal for sophisticated brides, with a love for attention to detail. Add to the wow factor with a cathedral veil or dramatic headpiece, and you are guaranteed to stun as you head down the aisle.
This beautiful new bridal line is the epitome of what today's brides are looking for in their wedding dresses! Amare's 'Mila' offers brides the trending 2-in-1 look, with a stunningly embroidered form-fitting silhouette and overskirt combination that is laced with old world elegance.
Delores' elaborately beaded & embroidered bodice is balanced perfectly by its layered tulle skirt. Brides will dazzle in this delicately beaded dream of tulle & embroidery.
Style '2070' by Mikaella is perfectly playful and feminine and their stylist has it so right; a floral crown is the perfect choice to add a touch of whimsy and complete the look.
Galia Lahav's 'Snow White' is an enchanting gown, befitting of its fairy tale namesake. We particularly love the airy gossamer sleeves with their delicate scattered lace detail, and the flowy lace-adorned skirt.
Pure Magnolia offers delightfully playful dresses for the eco-conscious bride and this season, they introduced even more fun to the collection, by offering pieces with bright pops of color. The 'Floral Bustier' and other select gowns can be made in your choice of color and while we think the combination is perfectly stunning as is; we also think that a bustier made in Pantone's 2016 colors of the year, Rose Quartz and Serenity, would be ah-mazing!
Brides will celebrate in style wearing Allure Women's 'W360'. The gown offers a feminine, curve-hugging silhouette that highlights your assets in all of the right places and its beautiful lace is sure to leave your guests dazzled.
Essense of Australia's 'D1845' boasts beyond beautiful back details that promise to make for an unforgettable exit.
Enzoani's 'Karina' is a dream of perfectly placed lace, delicately scattered across a soft trumpet silhouette. Just imagine this gown floating down an aisle lined with hundreds of flickering candles; we think it would be spectacular!
The delicate champagne-hued lace of '2608' beautifully accents the sleek silhouette and perfectly en pointe layers.
Daria Karlozi's 'Paladia' offers a classic silhouette with delicate, dainty details. The subtle beading at the waistline draws the eye to its beautiful lace bodice and the cap sleeves complete this utterly feminine look.
Fashion forward, statement-making brides will love the Ida Torez collection, and in particular 'Palmere'. This dress is single-handedly capable of bringing sexy to any back (sorry, we just couldn't resist!)
Sarah Seven's 'Cognac' offers an urban chic sheath in an of-the-moment, icy silver shade. Whether you chose to wear it for your wedding, an engagement party, or a black tie affair, this dress will have you stealing the show, no matter the occasion.
'Cosmos' by Blush by Hayley Paige is feminine, with a marvelously modern cut. Its subtly lined skirt elongates your silhouette, while the surplice bodice creates a "V" neckline with the perfect amount of daring.
Amsale's 'Rowan' is the ideal gown for the laid-back bride, whose wedding will be one fabulous fête.
