Strapless and lace. Separately or a combination. Strapless being most common. :-p Guess a lot of designers are allergic to straps and sleeves idk.

mrsbullwinkle :  I see belts as going out. I dont think they are quite  the tippy top of trend right now,they are slidng down.I am torn about that because I DO like sparkly belts, but I also think they can ruin the line of well proportined fit and flair dresses and also, they are unneceaary and date the look. But I still like them!

Lace as a fabric is,of course,  all over the place.

Horsehair ruffled fabric in skirts will be a marker of 2016.

Illusion bodices are top of trend.

Strapless lace sweetheart mermaids/trumpets continue to dominate (virtually every wedding I’ve attended in the last 2 years had a bride wearing this style…the one exception wore a strapless lace sweetheart A line gown).  Agree that blush and alternatives to white continue to grow in popularity.

Newer trends include illusion necklines and elaborate illusion backs, lots of sheer panels/cutouts, very deep (sometimes to the navel) V necklines, long embellished sleeves, very elaborate lacey trains.  The Israeli designers (Galia Lahav, Inbal Dror, Berta, etc) have become increasingly popular for “sexy” brides, and their designs include a lot of these features.  The ruffled horsehair trim skirt, as FauxPas2012  said, is very popular now.  I haven’t seen any brides wear them, but a lot of bees are obviously enamored of the Hayley Paige look.  There also seems to be the rise of a new minimalist trend, with smooth, unembellished crepe or satin or charmeuse in body conscious silhouettes (I’m thinking of the newish simple non lace Pronovias gowns like Irune, although Nicole Miller has been doing this kind of style for awhile).  3D floral embellishments are a big trend this year too (as seen in the most recent Monique Lhuillier and Ines di Santo shows).  The other newer trend is separates…lots of designers, like Carol Hannah and Watters (and recently Martina Liana), showcase options for combining different corsets and skirts.
