Following on from last weeks Bridal Fashion Week Part 1, the other trends that you will see in Spring 2016 Bridal collections are firstly short frocks. If you are embarking on a destination wedding this will be the one for you. Some designers went for above the knee like Oscar de la Renta’s dress above or others took the form of a tapered hemline that you can see below with the Ines De Santo dress. Either way this season’s collection really gives you a variety that many brides over the years have been calling for, for quite sometime.

Next on the list is the all white pantsuit, I guess Solange Knowles was the inspiration here, but for the super modern bride this is a pleasant change. No two suits were the same and as you can see from below at Carolina Herrera, the pants were cropped while at Theia, a crisp white silk tuxedo ruled the waves and at Houghton, an airy, loose-leg version of the trend provided the perfect inspiration for a chic beachside wedding look.

Finally as you know I love a floral dress, so I was especially pleased the trend hasn’t gone away and what was even nicer they were as bright or as subtle as you wanted them to be. Houghton is the designer to go for if want to wear anything but white, while Naeem Khan introduced watercolor flower prints adorning traditionally stunning white gowns, Nice!
