The recently concluded April 2016 New York Bridal Fashion Week introduced a number of new & exciting fashion trends to the bridal world. We featured fabulous collections from Angel Sanchez, Berta Bridal, Monique Lhullier, Pronovias, Rosa Clara, Tony Ward and more – click here to view the collections!
We took a look at the atypical wedding dresses – not floor length, but chic. Here are BN Weddings top picks!
Our Runway Glam! This metallic tasseled fringe cocktail dress by Naeem Khan is a big and bold mini, suitable for the modern bride who is keen on showing off a bit of leg and desires statement accessories to accompany her look. Metallic is VERSATILE, it adds a taste of elegance.
Why we love this! The skirt overlay is a HUGE trend this bridal season and we love how Project Runway alum Christian Siriano incorporated the trend into this short beaded dress. This is for the bride who loves detailed drama with the train and would love to show off her shoes.
Vintage! This is a 20th anniversary modern recreation of the 1950 classic tea-length dress from Monique Lhullier made with an airy lace, delivering a breath of lightness infused with a bride’s natural goodness. A perfect match for the carefree bride who obsesses over sexy lingerie type slip ons.
Short or SHORTER? Most would say a short white dress is risque, but how short is too short?. This conventional white dress by Christian Siriano is an embodiment of the trending 3-d floral applique creating a whimsical dress for the adventurous, fanciful bride.
Long sleeved lace! This chic ivory long sleeved, sheath mid-length dress with an illusion neckline by Oscar de la Renta is the beginning of couture meets bridal wear. For the high fashion bride that opts out of the long, free-flowing gown – this is it!
The New Cinder! From the old princess ballgown dress to this new revamped off shoulder, low neckline Christian Siriano piece of sensuality, one of the first from his new bridal collection – no groom would take his eyes off this! This is the perfect pairing for a romantic inspired dress.
Sequin Lover! Another from the Christian Siriano for Kleinfield collection, an honest example of the new fashion set co-ords, with a sequined embellished turtle-necked cropped top and bodycon skirt – the ultimate high-end option for a bride with flare!
The High Neck Fantasy! This super mini dress with sheer long-sleeves is neat and clean, for the bride with a petite physique or simplistic taste. This Christian Siriano design is a powerful distribution of lace embroidery with a perfect upper-thigh cut. A pair of silver stiletto sling backs or sexy open toe heels would set the man of her dreams off.
Hybrid! This informal, high-quality detailed dress by Angel Sanchez plays with illusions and innuendos with a macrame lace high-neck and bubble-hem hiding the thighs but exploring different waistline angles – for the bohemian styled look.
Brides – would you take it up a notch?!
