As we were putting the finishing touches to this issue, the talk in the office was about the beautiful new bridal launches coming your way in 2016...

In all probability this is the year you're getting married, so you're just in time to get the bridal buys that have made it to the top of Brides' staff's wish lists.

For me, it's the first full bridal collection from British label Needle & Thread, which follows the successful launch of its ready-to-wear label in 2013. Already known for its fine lace, and floral and sequin detailing, the brand is now bringing a collection of 17 modern and intricate bridal pieces in buy-me-now colours, such as vintage chalk and ballet pink, at a seriously attractive price. Look out for heavily embellished crop tops with statement high-waisted tulle skirts, oversized romantic gowns, the tiniest mini dresses and you'll-wear-that-again separates.

Hannah Coffin, creative director of Needle & Thread, says: 'Women don't just come to Needle & Thread for their "special moment" dress. To be able to offer her a piece for the biggest day of her life - something the less traditional bride can wear again - has been so exciting for myself and my team.'

My personal favourite? The Floral Gloss dress (£850; www.needleandthread.com).
