There was plenty to ogle and drool over at the New York Autumn/Winter 2016-17 bridal runways last month from stunning simplicity at Lela Rose to the Spanish influences of the Naeem Khan.

While we could wax poetic for days bout some of the shows (Alon Livne and Hayley Paige were particularly breathtaking) we’ve rounded up some of the biggest trends for the next year so all you brides-to-be can be sure that the big deposit you just put down will still be as stunning and on trend come time to walk down the aisle in a year’s time.

 

ICYMI: Hello New Issue Of IMAGE Brides!

Sheer Sleeves

Sheer Sleeves

While sleeves of all lengths, cuts and materials never truly goes out of fashion for bridal looks (particularly if you’re getting married on our very fair but rather unpredictable isle!) the full-length sheer sleeves covered (sorry) the New York runways. ?From everything to glistening metallic mesh sleeves to lace extravaganza, choosing to cover up is back.

 

Statement Necklines

Statement Necklines -

No longer all about the big jewellery, bridal designers have moved on to incorporating the statement into their couture pieces. There were ?beautifully creeping lace flowers and avant-garde shapes that drew the eyes to up from the silhouette to the face as styles took the fussiness out of the high neck.

 

Waist Attraction

Waist Attraction

Thank Kim Kardashian’s absolutely stunning Givenchy wedding dress for this trend as cut-outs and opaque waistlines were everywhere. Making your waist appear even tinier, we love how?Galia Lahav paired the sheer sides with long sleeves to create the perfect balance.

 

Bold Beadwork

Bold Beadwork

No longer invisible little gems that barely flicker in the sunlight but bright, coloured jewels were the order of the day in New York. Proving that bold beadwork can be demure and stylish, plus, if you can’t go big on your wedding day, when can you?

 

Applique Flora

Applique Flora

The shows of Lee Gredenau to Isabelle Armstrong gave a shout-out to Victorian lacework this season. Think three-dimensional flowers that flutter in the breeze without looking too in-your-face. We really can’t get enough of that Berta dress either, talk about timeless.
