40 fab wedding dresses with bling, gemstones and sparkle

It's all about the bling in 2016...


40 fab wedding dresses with bling, gemstones and sparkle

Gowns are sparkling with sequins, gemstones and diamante detail, as wedding dresses with bling are set to be a big trend for 2016. Here’s our top 40…

Sparkling bodice

We’re seeing lots of sparkling bodices paired with plainer skirts. Fitted bodices with gemstones, beading and diamante detail are extremely eye catching when paired with a ball gown skirt, as seen in the Diane Legrand, Sophia Tolli, and Impression Bridal styles pictured.

Back bling

We love the surprise element of dresses with beautifully detailed backs – your wedding guests only catch sight of it after you have walked past them up the aisle.

A touch of sparkle

Often only a hint of sparkle is enough to add a touch of glamour to your gown. From the beaded collar on the Amanda Wyatt satin gown, to the sequined shoulder detail on the Pronovias dress – there are lots of wedding dress styles where a ‘less is more’ approach to sparkle works wonderfully.

Top to toe

Of course it is your wedding day and if you want to go for the drama and glamour of head to toe bling – then why not! It’s your big day, and it that isn’t reason enough to choose a sparkly dress – it’s almost Christmas. Any of these style, but particularly Johanna Johnson gown would look amazing at a Christmas, New Year’s or winter wedding.

Belted bling

If bling isn’t really your thing but you are keen to embrace the trend, then opt for a belt with bling.
