You’ve found the perfect wedding dress, sourced your dream bespoke bridal shoes and made a decision on your hairstyle. Now, do you want an embellished selfie stick to go with that?

Or how about some pearl and lace headphones to match your gown?

New York Bridal Week Fall 2016 took over the Big Apple this month, and brought to the runway a slew of unexpected new-age trends.

From aisle-ready selfie sticks complete with all the trimmings to lace bridal leggings, flapper mini-gowns and capes instead of veils, take a look at some of the most surprising bridal trends set to hit the altar.

Bridal selfie sticks

You may have booked yourself a photographer, videographer and given all your friends and family a personalised hashtag so you can collate their social media images too. But unless you’ve got a Reem Acra selfie stick to take an aisle shot, you’re just unprepared.

Wedding headphones

Instead of a flower crown, perhaps? Or for the silent disco taking place at your reception? The reasoning behind Reem Acra’s pearl encrusted headphones are still somewhat ambiguous, but they're certainly pretty.

Wedding leggings

Better than tights? Designer Ines Di Santo sent models down the aisle wearing sheer lace leggings under their super short gowns.

Flapper-style mini-gowns

If full-length frothy gowns aren’t for you, Naeem Kahn has just the thing. Short and chic flapper dresses. Complete with fringing, lace, sheer panels and matching statement jewellery, expect to see a 1920s style revival sauntering down an aisle near you.

Bridal capes

Forget the veil, come 2016 it’s a cape you’ll need. Naheem Kahn, Pronovias, Houghton and Theia all showed off gowns that came with flowing capes cut from lace, chiffon and silk, ideal for making a dramatic entrance.
