A Deeper Look Into Spring Wedding Trends

Rising temperatures, sunny skies, and blossoming flowers… It’s no wonder why spring is one of the most popular times of the year to get married! For the lucky brides getting married this spring, there is an abundance of fun wedding trends to consider. This blog will look a little deeper into the wedding dress trends spotted at the Spring 2016 Bridal Fashion Week. Take a look:


  • Bateau necklines – the dresses themselves are simple, fitted, and classic, with just the broad bateau neckline making the statement. A great choice for a sophisticated, classy bride who wants to avoid the strapless dresses that have been so popular in recent years.
  • V necklines – dipped V-necks were seen on the runways this season, which are less innocent than the sweetheart neckline but more demure than a daring plunging

    V neckline. A great choice for brides with a flair for the dramatic.

  • Blush tones – it’s always exciting to see colored gowns come back into trend. This season, expect to see brides wearing blush-colored gowns for a barely there pop of color. The perfect choice for spring!
  • Feathers – as discussed in our previous blog, feathers are very in vogue this season! Feathers took center stage on many gowns on the runway during fashion week. Some were big and dramatic, while others were featured as soft, delicate dress details.
  • Lace – although lace isn’t exactly a new or groundbreaking trend in wedding fashion, this season designers are layering different types of lace, like Chantilly and tulle, for an interesting aesthetic and texture.
  • Victorian Flair – spotted on the runway in the form of high necklines, flared sleeves, pearls, and tiaras, Victorian inspired flourishes are a unique and exciting new trend for spring. A great option for brides who are looking to inject some old-world charm into their wedding style.

Spring Wedding Trends

Spring is the time most associated with weddings, and although it is still several months away, planning in advance is important. Spring wedding trends often reflect the beauty of the season and are seen in pastel color schemes, bountiful blooms, and fairytale gowns. Here are a few things we can expect to see as a trend for spring weddings this year:


  • Metallics – although pastels will always be the classic springtime color palette, this year you can expect to see metallics make their way into everything from bridal accessories to venue decor. The metallic hue projected to reign supreme this year? Rose gold.
  • Romantic Ambience – this spring expect weddings to give off a vintage and romantic vibe. According to bridalguide.com, event designers say they’re using more pendant lights with bare “Edison” bulbs, vintage chandeliers, and candelabras to cast a soft glow.
  • Intimate Seating – another rising trend finds couples moving away from seating their reception guests at traditional round tables, instead opting for long, rectangular tables that offer a more intimate, family-like atmosphere.
  • Free-form Florals – typical spring bouquets and centerpieces feature pretty petals of cream-colored hydrangeas, pink peonies, or blush roses accented with baby’s breath. This year, expect spring wedding flowers to look a little wilder. Bouquets and centerpieces will use funkier blooms in more than one color (expect lots of green!), accented with interesting details like vines or fiddlehead ferns.


At Superior Sewing, we know we’re not alone in wondering what the spring trend for wedding dresses will be this year! We can’t wait to see what gowns brides will be bringing through our doors. A few projected dress trends are:Spring Wedding Dress

  • Long Sleeves – long, lacy and sheer sleeves are still in vogue! We expect to see more of these classic, vintage-inspired gowns.
  • A-line Silhouette – This is expected to be the silhouette this spring. We’ll likely even see it on some knee and tea-length gowns!
  • Feathers – for the daring bride! Feathers will make an appearance on some fun gowns this year in the form of feather skirts and feather accessories.
