If you’re on the hunt for some wedding gown inspiration, put down the bridal magazines and don’t even bother scrolling through endless Pinterest boards. The recent Haute Couture Spring 2016 shows were ripe with bridal fare, from statement-making wedding gowns complete with floor-grazing veils to more unconventional silhouettes perfect for bohemian-minded brides-to-be. Fashion houses like Chanel and Elie Saab offered up unexpected details in the form of fringe, while Giambattista Valli and Christian Dior reimagined traditional necklines resulting in refined asymmetry along with an attached bouquet of sorts. Ralph & Russo’s collection was full of dresses simply begging to walk down the isle, including pieces decorated with fur, lace, capes and even a cold-shoulder creation that was surprisingly demure. Whether you’re already engaged or plan to be sometime in the near future, get ready to take notes as you peruse the slideshow of dream wedding dresses above.
