For a sexy, modern bride who still craves a bit of tradition, Val Stefani's Spring 2016 collection offers classic fabrics paired with modern, figure-hugging silhouettes. Lace, tulle, and beading are traditional enough to make you feel like a bride, while trendy cutouts and fitted shapes bring a 21st-century edge. Emulate the royal style of Kate Middleton with a lace fit-and-flare wedding dress featuring elbow-length sleeves, or choose a mermaid silhouette with a dramatic tulle skirt. A gown with cutouts around the waist tips its hat to the crop-top trend, while another design's daring low back remains sophisticated thanks to a timeless lace overlay. The collection also offers several ways to customize your look; for example, a detachable tulle overskirt and optional illusion sleeves.

While the classic-meets-glam designs vary in their degree of trendy vs. traditional, all feature intricate lace and/or beading details and fitted bodices with tastefully flared skirts. Click through the slideshow above to see the full collection!
