If you’re searching for your dream wedding dress and need a little bit of wed-spiration, you’ve come to the right place! We’re big believers of not picking a wedding dress just because its ‘on-trend’; it has to suit you and your style, however we always strive to look out for beautiful updates in detail, style and silhouette that can take a wedding dress to the next level of wow! Read on for our Top 5 Wedding Dress Trends to keep in mind for 2016 and beyond.
Statement Backs

Wedding dresses with statement backs have been popular for a few years now and show no sign of dipping in popularity for the foreseeable future. We have a wide selection of stunning back designs which range from delicate lace and button-up designs to glitzy racer backs and elegant cowel backs revealing a gorgeous lace keyhole detail.

All the Frills

Frills in all forms are big news this year and are set to be seen in more ways than ever before! From sweeping layers to foam like ruffles that move majestically with every step. We’re used to seeing frills on Princess dresses however fishtails and more fitted shapes are also set to be adorned with fanciful frills in 2016.

Cinched In

A flattering style for many body shapes, cinched in waists with bows and structured folds are set to be big design details in 2016 and beyond which we can already see in our in-store collections. Our particular favourite is the Sottero and Midgley ‘Margot’ (pictured right); presenting the perfect combination of elegance and allure. The ‘Margot’ is arriving to the A Bride-2-Bee boutique soon! Please call us for more information.

Halter down the Alter

Halter necklines have the ability to transform silhouettes into super glamorous gowns that will flatter form fitted bodices perfectly as well as vintage inspired silhouettes for an unmistakable 50’s look. Jewel embellished straps, as seen left, are ideal for adding essential glitz to a bridal look.
