#1 It's all WHITE

We're getting WHITE HOT on the runways for #SS16. Our current style icon, Kendall Jenner hit the catwalk wearing this structured white masterpiece by Balmain. Interpret this clean, minimalistic colour palette by opting for pure white on your wedding day. We heart this White by Vera Wang at David's Bridal gown!

#2 What lies beneath

Boudoir-dressing (or outerwear as underwear) is a trend still very relevant to the new season. Proferring peek-a-boo lace and sheer layers, incorporate this sexy, slightly risqué trend with a sheer corset top to your dress, like this Gemy Maalouf number above. But, remember people: keep it classy, nobody wants to see more skin than cloth.

#3 Bold blooms

Don't hold back this season when it comes to floral details. On the runway, as seen at Delpozo (above), large appliqué petals took centre stage! Go to town with your gown and fall hard for flower-embellished tulle and much, much more. This design from Ian Stuart hits the nail on the head.

#4 Oversized sleeves

Say hello to dreamy oversized sleeves from the likes of Emilia Wickstead and Versace. This might seem slightly old-fashioned when it comes to a wedding dress, but think about it in the way that luxury bridal brand, Julie Vino (above) has. The sheer, embellished overlay of this gown with divine sleeves are what make it so beautiful. *Dreamy eyes*

 #5 Ruffles

If you want a bit of fashion-forward volume when it comes to your wedding dress, then you're going to be happy to hear about the ruffle-trend that's been taking over the catwalks! Get inspired by this Balmain runway look before starting the search for your dress. The Claire Pettibone number above takes a gloriously soft approach to the aesthetically-pleasing detail by showcasing tulle ruffles around the neckline #GENIUS.

#6 BOW-utiful! 

With the likes of Oscar de la Renta and Chanel incorporating the bow detail into their designs, it's going to be a no-brainer when it comes to channeling this detail with your wedding dress. Sarah Janks' ivory strapless concoction is the stuff of dreams, and its adorable contemporary bow waist detail will have you running into the changing room!

#7 Metallic

Metallic palettes are causing quite the stir this season. Why not jump on the bandwagon and try something show-stopping like this amazing Gemy Maalouf gown!

#8 LACE lace LACE 

Beautifully bohemian (as seen here at Alberta Ferretti) and enchantingly traditional, lace is taking the industry by storm this #SS16. Delicate, and slightly fairytale-like, it's form lends itself extremely well to the bridal gown. This Lusan Mandongus mermaid gown will please even the most picky of brides.

#9 Grecian goddess 

Mention a grecian-style dress and you've instantly got our attention. This Alberta Ferretti design screams GODDESS (like, really loudly) and not only can you be seriously inspired by it but we're thinking you could actually wear this dress on the big day. Or, turn to the dreamy designs of bridal label, Katie May. Her bohemian number above is utter GENIUS.
