Is your wedding dress shopping confusing you? Too many gorgeous styles to choose from? Fear not! Hazel from top bridal boutique, Gillian Roberts is here to reveal seven sensational dress trends for 2015 to get you back on track…

Lace

Whether you choose all-over lace or appliqués on tulle, vintage-style brides should definitely consider incorporating this hot fabric into their look. The addition of glittering lace appliqués, even on just a small area of your dress, will bring timeless elegance and a focal point for matching accessories.

Illusion necklines

Illusion bateaux necklines give a softer and more detailed edge to the popular and universally flattering sweetheart looks.

Statement backs

Plunging backs are really making an impact in the current collections to choose from for 2015. Whilst some are sheer, sparkling illusion backs, there are beautiful delicate lace overlays or bare-to-the-waist showstoppers too.

Full skirts

Skirts are set to be fuller and more romantic. Whether A-line satin, layered tulle or dropped-waisted, more voluminous flowing skirts are featured in every collection. These are coupled with beautiful lace trimmed hemlines to dramatic effect.

Sleeves

Short and cap-sleeved looks are strong than ever. Sparkly, detachable straps, sleeves, or coverlets make an impact and mean that your look can be adapted from day to night. This makes your gown great value for money and gives you more photo opportunities, too!

Satin

Satin always looks expensive and decadent. Whether you want a figure-hugging style or a full-on princess gown, satin is sure to wow your guests as you make your entrance. This fabric works particularly well in winter teamed with sparkling accessories.

Colour

2015 is all about coloured wedding dresses! Blush, the cutest, most subtle of pinky tones, is definitely the way to stand out and express your sophisticated girly side. Caramel, pale gold or blush overlaid with brighter, ivory details make for jaw-dropping and eye-popping effects! So, if you see a gown on the rail a shade or two deeper than the rest, give it a try.
