Written by Christina Rowan

Brides of 2015 have a multitude of up and coming wedding gown trends to choose from for their big day. From classic concepts reinvented for modern tastes to original designs making their debut into the bridal fashion scene, these eight trends will fascinate and inspire brides to find the perfect dress.

Illusion Back

Fashioning an open back, like this Maggie Sottero Savannah Marie gown, is sexy and bound to turn a few heads as a bride walks down the aisle. The details traced along the outline are a refined way of bringing attention to an unexpected area without giving too much away.

Floral

Intricate floral patterns spilling into the folds of a skirt or on the bodice and sleeves of a gown are new trends capturing the attention of brides the world over. Fit for a bride who considers herself a “flower child,” floral patterns flatter the figure and scream “romantic” with ease.

Collar

A more sophisticated and modest design, collared wedding gowns are made for regal brides who want to look like a queen. With high-necklines as a popular trend amongst designers this season, the collared gown does well in combining the past with the present.

 

Crop Top and Cut Out

Made famous in casual apparel, crop tops have quickly made their way into bridal fashion. The two-piece cut out, allows brides to indulge in showing off a little skin while enjoying the luxury of having some wiggle room at their midriff.

Something Blue

Reminiscent of the ocean, blue gowns have splashed their way to this years bridal runway shows. Pale, subtle, shades of blue encourage the opportunity to think outside the box and stand out, without straying too far from the traditional white.

Ruffles

Cascading tiers of delicate fabrics add volume and depth to a gown. Like a cake, the key to making a dress with ruffles work is by tailoring its layers accordingly: lace, beading and jewels.

 

The Hollywood Slit

Placing a bride in a gown with a long slit that shows off her leg makes her feel as if she’s not only walking down the aisle, but also strutting the red carpet. The technique adds sexiness, flair and confidence.

Capelet

A treasured detail by boho and vintage inspired brides, capelets are a simple yet distinct option to add – not to mention they serve multiple purposes: create added drama, cover your shoulders without committing to full sleeves and keep you warm.
