Taking a cue from the Spring 2015 looks lighting up the runway at last April’s Bridal Week, here are some of our picks for wedding style trends that everyone can expect to see more of in the year ahead. Click any image to view the full-size version in a new window.
Accessorizing your wedding gown with a coordinating wrap adds a touch of drama without sacrificing elegance. Alberta Feretti opts for a romantic floor-length cape in re-embroidered lace, while Ines Di Santo’s look features a whimsical beaded lace capelet.
Smoky metallic fabrics and accents stood out as a sophisticated alternative to the traditional white dress. Watch for silver-grey gowns and embellishments in styles like this flowing sheer-overlay gown by Amsale and this stunning lace mermaid dress from the Theia White collection.
Complex needlework accents dominated Bridal Week, with every designer showcasing intricately embroidered gowns. This is a departure from the standard decorative use of embroidery as these pieces are created with the embroidery as the focal point, like the re-embroidered lace of this high-necked cocktail-length wedding dress by Marchesa, or this embroidery-patterned Naeem Khan gown.
The trend that defined the 90s returns to wedding couture. Elizabeth Fillmore offered a collection of classic lingerie-inspired designs with on-trend tweaks like blush hues and embroidered accents. Houghton’s runway featured a modern take on the slip dress with warm tinted fabric, a more angular silhouette, and simple design.
Fine pleats accenting waistlines appeared on flowing gowns during the runway shows of several designers, but each had their own take on this embellishment. Our favorites are the precise, elegant fan pleats that form the waist and bodice of Truly Zac Posen’s strapless princess gown, and Jenny Packham’s loosely gathered overlay that in elegant Grecian pleats from the jeweled waist.
Designers acknowledged the many different options modern brides enjoy for wedding themes and venues, featuring runway looks designed for non-traditional weddings. This destination wedding look from Oscar de la Renta includes an eyelet lace bikini and matching pareo wrap ideal for a romantic beach ceremony, while Angel Sanchez’s 60s-inspired mini is perfect for a casual wedding and cocktail party reception.
Bridal separates were another popular theme, with almost every designer offering a dress and jacket or top and skirt combo. We love Theia White’s pairing of a cropped embroidered shell top with a voluminous ballgown skirt, and Houghton’s re-embroidered lace crop top and mullet skirt– these ensembles have a sense of fun without losing sight of the occasion.
The geometric lines of this pattern are reminiscent of Art Deco styles and afford these modern styles a classic beauty. Truly Zac Posen opted to create the chevron pattern with the construction and stitching of the garment itself in a breathtaking ruby tulip dress, while J.Mendel’s look is created by clever manipulation of the fabric’s print and texture.
