Satin wedding dresses are back in vogue for 2016 and we’ve rounded up the top 30 most flattering satin styles

Once said to have had their day, satin wedding dresses are now back in a big way for 2016. Dress designers’ collections feature full satin skirts and there is a focus on ball gown styles.

Ball gown

Slinky satin wedding dresses can be unforgiving and don’t always look particularly flattering if you’re carrying an extra pound or two. Luckily 2016 fashion seems to be focused very much on figure flattering A-line and ball gown shapes. Feel like a modern princess in these ball gown styles with pockets by Cabotine and Pronovias.
