Marriage is forever, so it's only fitting that Anne Barge's fall 2016 collection was guided by the word "eternal." Designs bring new flavors to classic, iconic silhouettes and details. The beautiful embellishments of lace and beading will stand the test of time, while still providing a modern edge. Brides will find an array of styles, from ball gowns to A-lines to contemporary sheaths, in a variety of crisp and airy fabrics.

Personality and playfulness surface in the details. The adorable Mikado silk "Camden" style features a row of tiny bows down the middle of the bodice, while "Rhyland" shows off legs thanks to a high-low skirt and playful pockets. The "Gotham" crepe column gown has a decidely Art Deco vibe with its bold embroidery across the neckline. A selection of ball gowns will satisfy any bride who desires to look like a princess, from "Amberley," sprinkled with tiny silk flowers, to the dramatic "Berkeley," featuring a full skirt and silk chiffon bodice with off-the-shoulder sleeves. See the entire collection in the slideshow above.
