With a new season just around the corner, there's a whole new set of bridal trends to look at for a spring wedding.

Off the shoulder

If you don't want to spend the night pulling up a strapless dress but covered-up arms make you feel dowdy, consider off-the-shoulder sleeves. They're equally sexy as they are romantic, and they flatter any bridal look. This sleeve creates a triangle shape and whittles the waist.

Crop top wedding dresses

Not only are crop top or cut out dresses bang on trend for the ceremony, they're also ideal for pre or post wedding events. Perfect for a wedding that's the complete opposite of a traditional setting, this style suits a bride who's not afraid of cutting edge fashions and brazen looks.

Detailed backs

Appropriately vintage-inspired, lace backs on a wedding dress add a delicate touch to your wedding look, while an open back is both seductive and glamorous. A low back on a wedding dress can be made more conservative when covered with lace, perfect for a traditional church wedding. It also gives your guests something to swoon over as you walk up the aisle.

Slinky wedding dresses

Your dress doesn't need a full skirt to be fabulous. Let your figure speak for itself with a form-fitting gown. A slinky wedding dress adds A-List glamour to your ensemble, as many celebrities favour this dress shape on the red carpet.

Coloured dresses

Pops of colour aren't just limited to your bridesmaids; while blush dresses are still making an impression, it has taken a step out of the bridal spotlight and shades of blue, grey and even mint green are on trend for a fresh look during a spring or summer wedding. Many brides are stepping away from the classic white wedding and donning something with a bit more colour. This is the perfect way to stand out from the crowd.

The colourful dress trend has been slowly brewing for a while. Check out some of our top tips on wearing colourful wedding dresses.
