Illusion neckline bridal gowns are absolutely the in thing for 2016. But what about your bridesmaids? If you want your favourite girls to be on trend too next year, Dessy has some stunning illusion neckline bridesmaid dresses to choose from:First up is this beautiful After Six gown style 6726. You can see from the image of its back why the illusion neckline works so well: the sweetheart bodice has a daringly low back which might make you feel a little over-exposed were it not for the sheer fabric which not only adds a little warmth but also gives the strapless dress support and extra structure. The full-length gown is made of the softest tulle (probably THE fabric for 2016 weddings!) over either a gold or silver lurex bodice which adds a gentle sparkle to the whole affair.
My next choice is Dessy Collection 2924 in Oyster, as shown above. Here the illusion neckline features shimmering rococo lace which of course looks particularly gorgeous for an evening reception. The top is immensely flattering as it produces a very pretty line for the shoulders so if you haven't had time to tone your upper body it won't matter in the slightest!
The next two illusion neckline bridesmaid dresses are both short and I think look all the sassier for it! Alfred Sung's D694 in Ivory is cocktail length in sateen twill with a chiffon knit yoke and jewel neckline - so pretty. Below that is I think my favourite of all, the Dessy Collection 2947 in Rose with fleur lace bodice and appliqué spilling on to the fuller skirt. The back of this dress is stunning.
Which one is your favourite?
