Bridal Market Trends for 2016

Bridal Market is a BIG deal in the wedding fashion world. It’s the spot to see and be seen for designers like yours truly. With 2016 Bridal Market being last weekend, I spent time hitting up my favourite spots and getting inspired by both our new collection (just wait for it) and others!

There were some major trends hitting the runway that you need to be in the know about!



One of my favourite non-traditional trends is (I can’t believe it myself) pants! From feminine details to masculine cuts, these gorgeous pant suit ideas are perfect for non-traditional brides, elopements, or just something with major wow-factor. Channel your inner Solange Knowles and go for it!


The trend of the detachable skirt is one we’re LOVING and have already included in our new collection. It adds a tough of glamour, drama and the ultimate gown change from ceremony to reception. Wow your guests with a gorgeous ballroom skirt that converts to a micro mini full of feathers for the dance floor!



Fairytale endings NEVER go out of style but cinderella inspired gowns are all the rage. The bigger, the better for this over-the-top is never over-the-top trend. Embellishments of lace, ruffles, appliqued florals and crystals add major glam factor that’s ALL princess.

At Valencienne we don’t follow trends – we invent them! Our brides have rocked pants, over skirts and cinderella gowns for their personal fairytales. What’s trendy now? Whatever YOU dream of. If you feel amazing – you’ll LOOK amazing!
