We were fortunate enough to go to the fabulous Chicago National Bridal Market last weekend to experience the latest trends in bridal, and wanted to share our favorite finds with you!
2015 is going to be a year that revisits older classic styles. At the market, we saw a lot of plain lace dresses with sleeves. This look may be considered more antiquated, however, we noticed the designs were usually modernized with a sleek low back. Styles such as the new Martina Liana gown pictured below are bound to be all the rage for the new season. They allow brides to achieve a classic, yet effortlessly sexy look. Not only that, but the revival of long sleeves also allows for optimal comfort. Brides will no longer feel the need to tug on their strapless gowns.
Don’t throw out your sparkly belts just yet! The trend appears to have carried over from previous seasons. We still saw several plain dresses spiced up with a solid beaded belt. Even a plain lace dress, like the ones previously discussed, can use a glittery belt. We always say that a belt can be added for just the reception to give the dress a different look, and it appears that this holds true for 2015!
The natural waist trend also appears to be staying strong into 2015. We saw several different types of natural waist gowns; everything from lace, to beaded, to completely plain. Natural waist dresses are bound to be a hit for the upcoming years, as they have a tendency to accentuate the smallest part of the waist. Because of their slimming nature, they tend to be a very flattering cut on a variety of different body types, and emulate the classic 1950s silhouette. Natural waist gowns also present the perfect opportunity to add a glittery belt!
One of the biggest trends for 2015 is definitely blush tones! Pink isn’t just reserved for bridesmaids and flowergirls anymore. Brides themselves seem to be rocking soft pinks in every style. It’s a way to modernize your look without stepping too far out of the box.
We hope this post helps prepare you for your 2015 wedding! We absolutely loved what we saw at the Chicago National Bridal Market, and are incredibly excited for what the new year will bring.
