10 Top Trends From The Spring Bridal Collection

The Spring bridal collection is generally a most ornate catalogue, filled with dramatic and luxurious designs. The trends we’ve noticed are fairly elaborate and modern, consisting of a variety of techniques and styles: from outpouring layers, 3-D floral appliqués, tulles and plunging but sensual necklines – all of the stuff that brides treasure.

A lot of the top designers have played with sheer elements in their dresses, making use of embellishments and pastel colours, not to mention dresses that are generous with the amount of skin on display – for those brides looking to make a statement.

It is not easy to cut through the plethora of dresses on offer, but we’ve done exactly that and boiled them down them to a choice few. Here goes:

1. The Big Bow
