Wedding Gown Trends 2015
Hello Wedding Lovelies, today’s post is the first installment of a two part article for the Bride’s of 2015. Finally, the most exciting, emotional and important task for your Wedding Day has arrived, it’s time to book your appointments and choose your dream Wedding Gown! But first we wanted to inspire you with the key bridal ‘Looks’ for 2015, whether you are a style conscious bride, dreaming of a modern wedding or a more traditional girl looking for some classic elegance inspiration, there is something for all!
Well you are such lucky ladies, 2015 has some new and super exciting bridal trends that are certain to bring out your inner princess for your wedding day! There’s so much opportunity these days to choose a dress that completely suits your personality and style, rather than having to adapt through lack of options. Traditions are changing and the freedom and options a Bride has today are amazing!
We have put together a few palettes to illustrate the Key wedding gown trends for 2015, a selection of our favourites that we hope you love just as much as we do! Next week we’ll be back with a guide to shopping your perfect Gown!
This light, whimsical and romantic fabric is huge for 2015. Whether you opt for a full romantic Tulle Gown or a Tulle Skirt combined with a separate lace top, cashmere jumper, denim shirt or even a rocking biker jacket. You can create a classic or a modern and sassy bridal look! The Designers to look for are, Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier, Carolina Herrera, Theia, Hayley Paige and Marchesa.
Trend Setter and fashion Influencer, Olivia Palmero choose to wear a three piece Carolina Herrera ensemble for her wedding to German Model Johannes Huebl. Her detachable full Tulle skirt with a high slit at the front, shorts and a white cashmere sweater created an utterly Chic look, finished off with blue embellished Manolo Blahnik Shoes. The very same style that Carrie Bradshaw wore for her civil ceremony to Mr Big!
White or Ivory Lace with a nude lining, AKA ‘Naked Lace’ is huge for 2015. Lace has been a key wedding trend for what seems like eternity. The Nude lining gives your look a more modern edge, effortlessly feminine and timeless. My favourites are designed by Reem Acra, Naeem Khan, Watters, Rivini and Lace Loves Grace.
Separates and Crop Tops
Separates and Crop Tops are perfect for the edgy, fashion-forward brides wanting to bring a modern feel to their bridal gown! One of my favorite trends for 2015, the designers to watch are Theia, Elizabeth Stuart, and Houghton.
Whether you would like to cover up for cooler seasons, walking down the aisle or have a different look day to night a cape is the perfect option. Designers rocking this super cool style were Monique Lhuillier, Watters, Naeem Khan, Theia, Alberta Ferretti, Angel Sanchez and Mira Zwillinger.
Coloured Wedding Dresses
While designers in seasons past may have given us lines of boldly colored gowns, this year they are keeping it light and airy. With just a hint of colour that might even be missed if you glance too quickly. Monique Lhuillier gave us beautiful robin egg blue dresses, while the other designers loving just a breath of colour are Ellie Saab, Jenny Packham, Inabl Dror and Theia.
The New Necklines
Illusion Necklines and off-The-Shoulder gowns ruled the runway this season showing in shows such as Monique L’huiller, Jenny Packham, and Marchesa. If you want to highlight your gorgeous “décolletage” off-the-shoulder is the perfect gown for you. An ornate Illusion neckline gives you the support of straps without the look of them! Plunging V-Necks were also huge with designers taking advantage of this look to give gowns a more old-Hollywood glam or Grecian goddess feel.
The Plunging and Embellished Backs
These are definately my favourite looks for 2015. I am totally obsessed with the idea of highlighting the back of the dress; it’s both unique and utterly romantic. Designers Claire Pettibone, Christos, Alberta Ferretti and Naeem Khan featured pretty wedding dresses with beautiful embroidered or lace applique backs and plenty of pretty bows and ribbons. Claire Pettibone wins my vote everytime! And for a mid summer or destination wedding then a deep plunging back would be the perfect look.
A few other key trends to look out for are:
Column beadwork embellishments from the likes of Jenny Packham, Ines De Santo and Peter Langer. As well as being a beautiful design with a 1930’s feel, vertical beading works to elongate the body and has a slimming affect.
Lattice weave fabric with a netting or a basket-weave design into wedding dresses for a style that’s unexpected yet timeless. Angel Sanchez, Monique Lhuillier and Indal Dror designed dresses this season with lattice details, both large and small.
The Dropped waist dress offers you the best of both worlds allowing you to show of your perfect figure whilst also allowing you to wear a full skirt. Seen at Zac Posen and Amsale.
That all for this week folks! All I can say is that I’m so jealous of all you Spring 2015 brides! I hope this roundup of trends helps steer you in the right direction of finding your dream dress for the big day.
