Monte Durham is an expert in all things bridal. From what silhouette flatters your body to which accessories add to your gown, this style guru has the answers to all your wedding dress questions. He recently attended bridal market, a semi-annual event that allows the biggest wedding dress designers to showcase their gorgeous creations on the catwalk. Throughout the weekend he was snapping pictures and scouring the runways for the latest bridal trends. Below are some of the styles he's predicting will be big in 2016. And if you want to see all his coverage, follow him on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook (if you aren't already!).

1. Flower power

Floral embroidery and embellishments were all over the runway, and Durham loved everything about this stunning Lazaro creation.

2. Body veils and capes

Who needs a veil on your head when you can have one attached to your dress? These stunning creations were seen at several shows, proving that you can create the dramatic effect of a veil without actually having one!

3. Fairy tale elegance

Light, airy skirts and ethereal designs were all the rage on the runway.

4. Asymmetrical details and hemlines

It's seems brides are rebelling against the classic symmetry of bridal gowns and looking at edgy, uneven hems that can actually come off as quite elegant.

5. Textured gowns

Beading and bling are nothing new when it comes to bridal gowns, but we saw tactile designs in gorgeous patterns.
