2. Layered loveliness

We’re not sure whether this layered Emiline wedding dress by Ruth Milliam is flapper style with its ruffles and differing lengths, but we’re 100 per cent sure that it’s gorgeous and bang on trend for 2016. Ideal for unique brides and destination weddings.

3. 1960s mod

Many brides are opting for an outfit change by the time the reception comes around on the wedding day. If you’re planning on throwing some shapes on the dancefloor come the evening do, try this ivory Monsoon Seraphina bridal dress which won’t confine you to a mere two-step. With three-quarter-length sleeves, hand-embellished details, embroidered patterns, sequins and pearl beads, this artisan piece is a bargain for £249.

4. Long-sleeved lace

The texture of lace instantly adds retro romance to a wedding dress. Charlotte Balbier’s ivory Nora dress is the perfect example of a shorter lace style with long sleeves and a nipped-in waist.
