2016 dress designers have experimented with texture to create show-stopping wedding dresses that are sure to turn heads – here is our top 33 textured styles
Applique refers to the technique of adding motifs or small decorative pieces of material to create a contrast in texture. From the subtle lace applique in the Berta Bridal gown pictured, to the large flower bloom on the Ian Stuart style, the trend is pretty versatile and can be seen across the board in wedding dress collections this year.
Embellishment is another major trend for 2016. Wedding dresses with sparkly gems, beads and blingy textures can create quite an impact and are perfect for brides who are looking for something a little bit different in a wedding dress.
From the attention-grabbing sheer Vera Wang dress to traditional girly girl Romantica gown, lace proves to be as popular as ever this year.
Layers and ruffles
We love the quirkiness of this Anny Lin peplum style ruffled wedding dress. Ruffles and layers can be used to create a quirky look (see the Wtoo Brides dress), or a ‘princess like’ appeal (see the Nicole Spose gown) – both of which will steal the show.
