With winter quickly approaching, brides-to-be are gearing up for their upcoming 2015 spring weddings. Naturally, finding the perfect gown and bridesmaid dresses may be the toughest decision you have to make for your wedding. As is often the case with fashion of any kind, wedding dress trends are cyclical and tend to come and go. Lucky for you, we spend all of our time working with leading designers to stock the best of spring 2015. House of Brides has you covered. Expect to see plenty of the following during the upcoming spring wedding season.
1. Off-the-Shoulder Necklines
The easily identifiable trend in the making is the off-the-shoulder neckline. If style predictors like Pinterest are any indication, off-the-shoulder gowns are picking up steam in a major way. Done right, the style can be both alluring and dignified at the same time. The nice thing about a simple, off-the-shoulder dress is that it compliments a variety of skirt styles and train lengths.
2. Vintage Lace Wedding Dresses
Every few years, it seems like a retro craze sweeps the wedding landscape. 2015 will be no different as brides embrace the vintage look in droves. Hallmarks of the style include lace sleeves and a lot of intricate embroidery. Thanks to modern sewing technology, you can get a vintage-inspired dress for a reasonable price. Try combining vintage accents with off-the-shoulder styles to achieve a unique look.
3. Tulle Skirt Wedding Gowns
One of the more powerful spring 2015 wedding dress trends on the rise that may surprise you is the growing popularity of the tulle skirt gown. If you’re open to the idea of a fun ball gown look, a tulle skirt wedding dress could be your bridal look. One major benefit of a tulle skirt gown is the fabric’s breathability, which makes a dress vastly more comfortable in hot and humid weather.
4. Casual Beach Wedding Gowns
Another burgeoning trend is a move away from overly elaborate gowns in favor of something more laid-back. A casual beach gown is usually fairly short by necessity and doesn’t boast the same frills that you’d expect to see in a church setting. The great thing about beach gowns is that they can come in a wider array of colors without looking ostentatious or tacky.
5. Sheath Wedding Dresses
Sheath Wedding DressesA growing interest in sheath wedding dresses is one of the spring 2015 wedding dress trends that can’t be ignored. This form-fitting style that eschews a tapered waistline allows for a knockout silhouette for brides of all shapes and sizes. Sheath dresses look fantastic no matter how simple or elaborate you’d like them to be. Better still, they can be made with all manner of materials to match any theme.
Trendy and Classy in the Same Package
As Thomas Jefferson once said, “In matters of style, swim with the current.” Going along with a trend is understandable and can lead to great results. However, you always want to remember the bedrock principles that make for a great dress and use that as your starting point. Modify a classic dress type with an in vogue style trend and you’ll end up with something truly memorable.
