Captivating crystals and flowing layers offer timeless elegance. The 2016 Fall Collections are filled with these touches, providing brides with a multitude of options for wedding dress silhouettes and styles. The Allure Bridal ballgown seen above, Style C380, is a superior example of how organza and satin can combine to become a girl’s best friend. Flowing waves of fabric contribute to a whimsical and airy feeling. The beautiful ruffles and crystal bead work that adorn this striking ballgown make it even more stunning.
Hallmarks of the 2016 Fall Collections
After sizing up this year’s bridal runway collections, the following from brides.com outlines some of the most popular and prominent features that captivated audiences:
Another majorly important feature was texture. 3D florals popped up on the runways yet again, taking a more ethereal turn with delicate organza appliqués (some even dotted with crystals and beads!) Lingerie-inspired looks cropped up, too, with silky slip gowns and the most delicate laces gracing the runway too.
Modern, minimalist styles, were also a hit. And while these sheaths were certainly understated, they were anything but simple.
We can’t forget some of the most influential decades in this seasons’ slew of new designs! The 90s played a big part, with spaghetti straps proving to be, well, the strap of choice, and fluttery sleeves and draped silhouettes, reminiscent of the 1930s. Read more at Brides online
Check out this gorgeous wedding dress from Sottero and Midgley, Style Syanne.

Intricate details add sparkle and visual interest that will leave your guests reminiscing for years to come. Wedding gowns with beading and crystals catch the light and allow the bride to glow even more radiantly under the twinkling lights during their first dance as husband and wife.
Texture: Effortlessly Defining Your Silhouette
Feeling confident as all eyes watch you gracefully glide down the aisle is every brides dream. Elegance isn’t only a state of mind. Showcase your best assets by determining which features you want to emphasize. Ruching fabric, strategically placed 3D florals, beaded belts and gemstone clips can dramatically alter the drape of your dress.
Style, cut, texture, drape, and season are all-important factors in determining the best fabric for a wedding gown. The same style dress can look and feel quite different in a variety of fabrics, since each material is designed to produce a distinct effect. Some fabrics cling to the body, while others stand away. Some are cherished for their crispness, others for being light-as-air. Silk — a natural fiber that exudes an innate quality of refinement — is undoubtedly the most sought-after and cherished wedding dress material, noted for its resiliency, elasticity, and strength.
Silk threads are woven to create various fabrics, including satin, a densely-woven silk notable for its super-lustrous gloss; duchesse satin, a blend of silk and rayon that is lighter and more affordable than pure silk satin; charmeuse, a lightweight silk satin with a more subdued luster; and shantung, a low-sheen textured silk characterized by a rough, nubby quality. Then there are the gauzier, textured silks like chiffon, tulle, and organza — all used in multiple layers for gown skirts since they are transparent, but lightweight. Via The Knot
