Now that bridal fashion week is over, there are plenty of new bridal trends for 2015 to keep an eye on as you search for that perfect wedding gown. One of the big themes this year was timeless romance – silhouettes and fabrics used to create gorgeous dresses that fit the modern bride, but still offer that vintage inspiration so many brides look for when dress shopping. Off-the-shoulder dresses are one of the hottest new bridal trends of 2015 – look for gowns that offer one-shoulder, illusion or cap sleeves. Draping straps and gowns made with lightweight fabric provide plenty of movement and an effortless look. Modern brides are becoming more adventurous when it comes to using color in the bridal look – there were some surprising choices out on the fashion runway this year! While blush pink has been a favorite, new shades of mint, gray and blue are one trend brides are sure to love, especially for those who want something a bit different from the traditional bridal gown.
While dramatic volume and ballgown skirts have dominated the last few years, brides this year want to combine the two in a unique way – tulle! Lightweight and offering plenty of movement, tulle is being used as beautiful overlay on simple gowns or to provide full skirts in combination with fitted bodices. Look for tulle overskirts with illusion necklines and sleeves – perfection! Veils are one of the most beautiful accessories you can use to accent a wedding gown, but there was one bridal trend that is sure to capture the attention of your guests as you walk down the aisle – capes! No, not a superhero cape, but rather an elegant veil-type cape that can be slipped over the hair for a complete look or as a bolero-style cape that just sits over the shoulders, a sort of homage to glamorous Hollywood fashions from the 1940s. These new bridal trends are sure to provide new brides with plenty of choices during shopping!
