The Top Bridal Trends for 2016


photo from

It may not seem like 2015 was that long ago, but the dresses worn, accessories used and decorations picked are now a thing of the past. If you went to a wedding in the last few years, you probably noticed that many of the dresses and accessories that the brides wore had a similar look. Designers now offer dresses that are completely different and some fun accessories that work with those dresses too. Regardless of when you plan on tying the knot, check out some of the top bridal trends for the new year.

Show More Skin

When you think of traditional wedding dresses, you probably think of those elegant ballgowns that reach all the way to the floor and dresses that have sleeves covering your arms. Designers now want you to show off a little more skin on your wedding day. Strapless dresses, especially those with a sweetheart neckline, are particularly hot right now. Other brides prefer off the shoulder dresses that show off their necks and shoulders. You’ll even find shorter dresses that let you make the most out of your sleekly toned legs.

Think Outside the Box

Arabian women often wear mehendi art on their arms during their wedding ceremonies.Even if you have no Arabian heritage, you can still think outside of the box and incorporate your favorite heena mehndi design. Artists use a temporary ink like henna to create elaborate designs that snake down your arms and on other visible parts of your body. Go way outside of the box with a sari or another traditional piece of clothing that you wear during the ceremony or your reception. Craftsvilla offers a wide selection of traditional and authentic dresses and accessories that are perfect for your big day.

Make the Dress an Accessory

Are you tired of wearing heavy jewelry and accessories that weigh you down? An elaborate headpiece, tiara or veil might look great during the ceremony, but it can also poke you in all the wrong places. Instead of wearing a lot of extra accessories, make your dress the main accessory. Some of the hottest dresses now come with elaborate jewelry actually sewn into the material and accents like gemstones and sequins attached to the front and back. These dresses have so much bling that no one will notice you aren’t wearing jewelry. Rock any of these hot bridal trends at your upcoming wedding.


I’ve been out of touch for so long. I know… and you know what? I’m not sorry about it. Once in a while we need to disconnect ourselves from the technology and have an actual “life”. I miss y’all though. (If there’s actually a y’all out there. Hahaha!)


Okay, here’s an update. I passed the TSI test! Yes, I actually did pass. I  beat my unicorn, my mythical foe, my waterloo, my Bermuda triangle, my math part of the exam. Bwahahahaha! It may sound soooo dramatic to some when it was actually just a test. But you know what, it is a big deal to me. It just took me 4 tries before I passed the test. Yes, I took it that many times and I didn’t gave up and it paid off. I’m going to nursing school, baby! Yeah!

After my TSI, I took the HESI 2 test… and wouldn’t you know, I passed! I killed that test and got 96%. Oh yeah!

Lastly, I took my CNA certification exam and I passed. I am licensed, baby! I also just got a job at a nursing home.

There you go, you’re now updated on my latest endeavors. I was busy taking exams left and right. Busy turning my life around. And despite all the studying and blinding headaches, I’m happy with all my achievements. It took awhile but it’s now over. I’m a few steps away to becoming an LVN.

I will really try to still get on this blog and chronicle my hardships and triumphs. It may not be current news as I may share the events on a later date…

Anyway, I will share about my family’s not so eventful yet happy life on the next post.

Au revoir! 💋
