wedding, wedding dress, wedding dress trends, trends for 2015

With so many wedding dress styles out there it can be hard to settle on just one, so before you browse Bride Online wedding dresses, get an idea of which trend you can see yourself in on your big day:

Off the shoulders

Invest in a secure strapless bra for this style dress because it doesn’t look like the trend is going to go away anytime soon. The Bardot is possibly the most popular cut for the second half of 2014 and brides wearing such a dress are sure to look classically stylish.

Like this style? Finish off the look with finger waves, simple jewellery and a slick of red lippie.

Tulle skirts

Think Sex in the City’s Carrie Bradshaw for this style of dress, as you twirl on the dance floor to your first song you’ll feel like a fairy princess. Look for a gown with a big, full skirt and a fitted bustier top.

Like this style? Complement such a girly dress with a messy up do and smouldering dark eye make up.

Lace sleeves

Channel Rachel McAdams in The Notebook in an elegant dress, featuring lace sleeves and skirt. Go for a train featuring more lace and diamante embellishments and top off with a simple veil.

Like this style? Keep your jewellery and make up to a minimum, let the dress speak for itself.

Non-traditional colours

Anything but white or off cream ticks this trend box for 2015, opt for a soft blush or a bright pastel colour, reminiscent of sorbets and summery treats. Non-traditional coloured dresses usually team up with more alternative cuts too, so expect to see midi length gowns in mint green or flowing maxi dresses in soft yellow hues.

Like this style? Natural make up and flowing hair complement this trend perfectly as you embrace everything quirky and cute.

Shorter length

Gone are the days when wedding gowns could only be found in long, longer or very long lengths in the bridal shop, now you can choose a midi and even mini styles. Shorter dresses are great for beach weddings or for those brides who stress about ruining their gown by letting it trail along the floor – although that’s what your bridesmaids are for!

Like this style? Embody the bohemian look with a diamante headband or a bindi, a glowing tan and dainty sandals, instead of uncomfortable heels.


Cut out back dresses are going to be popular in 2015 and are great for those more daring brides (who want to show off all their hard work at the gym). They’re also perfect for keeping you cool throughout the day and add a touch of extra sexiness to your gown.

Like this style? Complete the look with a slick up do, long earrings and simple jewellery.

Crop top

The co-ord set has been a real hit throughout 2014, with matching crop tops and bottoms stealing the show. It is a trend that will carry through to 2015 and will be found on plenty of bridal shop rails, but be prepared to bare your midriff with this more alternative bridal trend. Have a browse at these crop top wedding dresses for inspiration; do you dare break away from the norm?

Like this style? For this alternative look opt for a more casual hairstyle and bold coloured lips.


You thought you could away from it, didn’t you? Or maybe you don’t want it to ever leave, but the Disney film Frozen and more importantly Elsa’s incredible ice inspired dress has had a real influence on wedding dress designs for 2015. Just take a look at these Frozen inspired gowns even if you aren’t a big fan of the film itself.

Like this look? A big side braid is compulsory to finish off this look, plus glittering diamante jewellery.

So which dress style will you be considering for your 2015 wedding? The year ahead seems to cover all the bases, for the traditionalist bride who loves lace to the more alternative who wants to test the boundaries of bridal fashion.
