Bridal trends change from year to year and each season brings along something gorgeous and unforgettable. In the sea of fabulous dresses, it is not always easy to choose the one you will wear on the happiest day of life. Fortunately, this little wedding guide will help you decide and pick a dress, shoes and accessories that are both fabulous and trendy at the same time.

The Dress

A classic style can perfectly complement the bride, so the dress does not need numerous embellishments to truly stand out. The bateau necklines all had sophisticated silhouettes, but also a great attractive fit.

The subtle deep-V bodice adds just the right touch of uncovering. Even though it is not as sexy as a plunging neckline and not as innocent as a sweetheart one, it will still make you look as gorgeous as ever.

Cropped tops are slowly becoming the wedding dress trend as well. I bet you never thought you would see a brides stomach revealing. Well, it is happening anyway and it could not look better. Casual and chic combined together provides you the unique elegance with this lace dress.

Subtle tones of taupe, nude and silver were a real hit on the spring runways. A sweetheart, tulle ball gown was provided with a warm effect with a nude underlay. A strapless gown with cool tones of silver is another trend you will adore. Furthermore, an ombre skirt, a copper threading, and a soft grey wash were all the shades that go away from the classic white, but still look absolutely gorgeous on a wedding dress.

Wedding dresses with body veils and capes attached to the back were another fabulous bridal trend that looks stunning. Forget about the veils across your face and embrace the new trend that will make you look like a true bridal superhero.

The gowns that will sweep you off your feet are definitely the ones that feature eye-catching embellished backs. Try to complete the dress with fashionable embroidery or other details for a breathtaking appearance.

The Shoes

Brides usually choose the wedding shoes in the exact color of the dress. However, this does not have to be the case every time. You can buy shoes in a shade that compliments the accessories rather than the color of the dress. Additionally, pearls, rhinestones, beads, and sequins can also look gorgeous, especially if the dress is not rich in embellishments.

In order to avoid sore toes in the middle of your walk down the aisle, buy comfortable wedding shoes. Heels are not a requirement, however. If you are not used to wearing them do not buy high heels, but opt for ballerinas, or some other shoes. Do not forget to consider the season your wedding is going to be held in. Summer is the perfect season for an open-toe, satin, off-white slipper in combination with open-back, off the shoulder satin gown. On the other hand, winter months require closed footwear. Therefore, plain raw silk closed shoe would match perfectly a traditional raw silk, full-skirted gown.

The Embellishments

Extravagant pieces will definitely make a statement to your overall wedding apparel. Accent your hairstyle with some hair jewelry, such as rhinestone-and-pearl hair clip and achieve the ultimate wedding hairstyle. Unusual, playful accessories like gilded crowns and little crystal tiaras make the best upgrade of the dated tiaras. If you choose not to wear a veil these headpieces make the best alternative. Furthermore, they will give the entire look just enough amount of elegance.

Rich and modern bouquets and beautiful centerpieces featuring vibrantly colored fruit and fluttery blooms like dahlias, anemones and peonies are also an important part of the accessories you need to consider.

The 2016 bridal trends have brought so many beautiful cuts, lengths and colours of the dresses we could not be more amazed about. The struggle begins when you need to decide which one of these fabulous models to choose for your big day. Fortunately, we all have different tastes and like different cuts, materials and colours so it should not be so difficult to decide what to wear among all the choices. Be creative and innovative and incorporate some of your ideas into the entire outfit and you will look absolutely stunning.
