If you’ve recently got engaged, you’ll know planning a wedding can be stressful. With rings, venues and outfits to plan, you probably have a lot on your plate right now. Let me help you out with some of best wedding trends for 2016 and make it easy for you to have a perfect day.
New vintage style wedding rings are big this season, and there are some beauties available online. Buying online can save you money. It’s also a great activity to do together, as you can use an online retailer’s website to review diamonds, cuts and setting options. If you are unsure on which retailer to pick, it is important to research them before hand. Use information like this James Allen review, which breaks down how the company works and what you can expect from them.
You may think that your only choices are white or ivory, but this is not true. There is a growing trend at the moment for colourful wedding dresses. Don’t worry; I’m not talking about those awful burgundy ones we saw in the 90s. I am speaking about pastel and blush colours in romantic shapes and shades. Why not try a wisteria blue dress for an ethereal fairy like feel? Or how about a soft blush dress for an element of romance? There’s even spring green and pale pink wedding dresses available, so the colour choice is entirely up to you.
We are seeing some unusual wedding dress cuts in 2016. The 50’s cut midi dress continues to be ever popular. If you are petite, make sure to wear some good high shoes with this look. 50’s dresses are a good choice for both slim and curvy brides as they give a very structured hourglass shape. Try accessorising them with coloured petticoats for a really cute look. You can even get matching bridesmaid style dresses and go for a whole retro theme.
The other cut that is super popular at the moment is the high low dress. These dresses have a skirt that is a high at the front and low at the back. This gives a huge amount of drama to the dress and allows you to show off your beautiful legs. If you cannot decide between a long and a short dress it is the perfect option.
Accessories for the big day
Luckily we seem to have seen the last of the bridal tiara. In its place, we see beautiful flower crowns, hair slides, and birdcage veils. You will need to match your accessories with your dress. The assistants in the bridal store can help you to do this. A longer classic dress looks great with a flowered crown and short dresses suits a birdcage veil.
A costume change
It is very popular at the moment, for brides to have two dresses, one for the ceremony and one for the evening reception. This allows brides to embrace both traditional and sexy looks. In the church, you may want to go for a longer dress and keep your arms and shoulders covered. This is the time to wear a full veil and a train. For the evening, you could choose a shorter fun option, or something a bit sexier that will move when you dance.
With so much choice available it really is up to you to decide what to wear to make sure you look gorgeous on your wedding day.
