If you are a bride getting married next year, be sure to bookmark these brand-new bridal fashion elements to inspire your wedding day look.

Black Wedding Dresses

Designers like Ines Di Santo and Maggie Sottero Designs definitely know how to push the boundaries in bridal fashion and sent some gorgeous black wedding dresses down the runway. Let me tell you, they made quite a statement! We are especially obsessed with the drama and elegance that dark gowns bring to weddings. And we are convinced that the boldest of brides are wearing black down the aisle next season!

Removable Sleeves

One of our personal favorite features was removable sleeves. Just like bridal capes, removable sleeves give the bride-to-be the option to customize her wedding dress at any point during her celebration—walk down the aisle with full-length sleeves, and then transform your bridal gown into a strapless, sexy number at the reception.

Hi-Low Dresses

Speaking of receptions—virtually every designer sent a mini dress down the runway with high-low numbers that brought a whimsical, yet romantic vibe. Perfect for a second-look or an informal ceremony, leg-baring dresses are a fabulous mix of modern and festive. Make it your own by adding super-cool and dynamic motifs, like feathers, pockets, metallic lace, and statement skirts. All these details made landmark appearances this season.

Geometric Patterns

Still going strong are gowns with geometric and striped elements! While we saw an uptick in geo lace this year, the craze most definitely continued with new and distinctive ways to infuse geometric lines into your bridal look. Despite the fact that geometric patterns sound like quite a modern and unique route to take with your wedding dress, designers like Allure Bridals and David’s Bridal proved that you can absolutely still achieve a classic or boho look while following the trend.
