1. Bridal buff

Eschew tradition by opting for a gown in buff, rather than the traditional white, or ivory. It suits most skin tones – due to its warmer colouration – and is particularly striking as the sun begins to warm.

2. Lace takes centre stage

While delicately embroidered detailing and appliqué work have never fallen out of bridal fashion, this spring sees renewed enthusiasm for the textural feel of lacey wedding dresses.

3. It’s all about the fringe

And texture abounds in this next trend too: the ‘70s (or cowgirl) fringe. Retro styles always seem to make their way down the catwalk and aisles around the world – and this is no different.

4. Inspired by nature

Going green may have more than one significance this season with bridal wear, to reflect the tones Mother Nature has given us. From mint, to jade, and even emerald (if you’re brave enough), take a walk on the wild side as you tread down the aisle.

5. Ruffle it up

Traditional bridal gown features get some verve this season with ruffles sashaying through to the mainstream. Think long trains and big skirts for a 21st century take on the vintage look.

6. Scallop necklines

By no means holding a monopoly, scallop necklines are, nevertheless, being seen more and more on bridalwear. Yet, if that does not float your boat, you can always opt for a halter neck or one-shoulder which are also all the rage.

7. Dramatic sleeves

The love for everything ‘70s also comes out in full force in this fearless trend: large, billowy sleeves. Not subtle in the slightest, this looks best on brides seeking to detract attention away from a particular part of their bod in the most striking way.

8. Elegant bridal suits

Can’t think of anything worse than a constrictive gown? Then, you’re in luck, for this season bridal suits are taking centre stage. Glamorous, with gorgeous detailing, this trend works perfectly for those who are looking to add a classic flavour to their day.

9. It’s all about the back

Looking great 360 degrees does take some time and attention. Don’t forego what the back of your gown looks like – just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean others cannot. After all, you want to wow everyone as you’re walking down the aisle.

10. Accessorise to the hilt!

Spring may not be a cold season, but that does not mean you should not don a hat and thin gloves, if your style demands it! Belts are also a great addition, nipping in your waste and highlighting your figure.
