According to the National Association of Wedding Ministers, 29 percent of weddings occur in the spring – a combined 23.3 percent of ceremonies are conducted in March, April or May. Spring is especially favorable in hotter climates like Texas where a summer wedding is often too warm for most guests.

If you are planning for a wedding in the coming year, here are a few 2016 spring wedding trends to get you thinking about your dream day. Get inspired for your spring 2017 wedding with some of these unique season-focused ideas.



One of the more popular wedding gown details that we have seen this year are illusion necklines and backs that are pushing the envelope. This full-on illusion bodice combines a sexy sheer top with carefully placed lace appliqués. The romantic look is covered up in all the right places and the nude lining makes for an intriguing look. This re-embroidered, metallic lace long sleeve Reem Acra wedding dress with a circular tulle underlay is one breathtaking example of the trend.
