Bridal Trends for 2015

Today’s fashion-forward brides are ready and looking for something new and exciting for the 2015 season. This year at the Bridal Fashion Week for 2015, the designers delivered the goods. Good news, 2015 will be the season of beautiful wedding gowns, ones that remind us of a fairy tale fantasy, with Victorian era hand detail and 1920’s glamour and decadence. Here are the three, gotta know trends – topping the 2015 list of must have wedding gowns.

1.) Off the shoulder gowns: Designed for women who want to emphasize their collarbone, neck and shoulders, the “off the shoulder” neckline is very feminine and timeless. An off the shoulder gown has that princess quality. It’s easy to understand why the off the shoulder gowns have found their way back onto high fashion and bridal runways throughout the decades.

2.) Illusion back gowns: Are detailed to give the idea of a totally open back – to a more covered back, with just a hint of allure. Illusion backs mostly come in lace or “tattoo” lace, which is a floral image or pattern applique, overlaid on mesh. The illusion back gowns are beautiful and detailed, reminiscent of the 1920’s, and add elegance to any bride’s gown.

3.) Pearl detailed gowns: Pearls can be a dramatic, classic and versatile detail for any wedding dress. This season, look for pearl detailed mesh backs, which was all over the runway for 2015. Pearl chandelier style shoulder straps, which look like pearl sleeves, have that hint of the classic 1920’s look too. The pearl sleeves, paired with gloves, is truly glamour to the fullest.

Things no one will tell you when planning your wedding

There are things most people don’t tell you when you announce your engagement. Everyone wants to voice their opinion on how you should dress, decorate and plan. However, no one really tells you how hectic planning can become. Read the LimeLight Expressions checklist for tips, secrets, warnings, and ideas.

1. Wedding Jabber

Is your fiancé tired of you asking him which napkin ring would work best with your theme? Although it is alright for you to be ecstatic about your recent engagement and the dresses and cakes to come, everyone is not going to share your enthusiasm each time you need to decide on something for the wedding. Try to spread wedding decisions throughout your family and friends. Share a little bit of silverware options with one friend, and color choices with your mom. Everyone is bound to be interested in small doses.

2. Everyone Has An Opinion

Although it is fun to share your ideas with anyone and everyone, family and friends will want to tell you how they feel or what they think looks best. Their idea of what looks nice may not be the same as yours. It is nice to have input from others, but when it comes down to it, this wedding should be everything YOU want.

3.Be Specific

Trying to explain in words what you want everything to look like can be confusing to different vendors. Try finding pictures of something similar to your idea to give better insight on your vision so everyone is on the same page.

4. The Stress-Cries

Your mom thinks you should wear great-grandma’s old wedding dress from the 50s. Your aunt wants to bring in her horses for you to ride in on. Your step-mom is upset that your mom chose the same color dress. With everything that comes your way, you may feel like your wedding day planning is becoming too stressful. Keep calm and take a step back. This is a sign that you need a wedding planning break or a professional to help you with your planning.

5.The Happy-Cries

Deciding which engagement photo goes on your invitations, and you burst into tears. Your Grandma lets you wear her prized possession necklace, and you become hysterical. Cherish every moment. These are memories you will have forever.

6. Too Much DIY

Thinking you’ll save money by making decorations yourself? Although it may save you a few bucks here and there, it will take more time and may cause headaches trying to get everything done. Also, what you envision may not come out exactly how you wanted. If you decide to go this route, make sure you leave enough time before the wedding day to get all of your projects fully finished and up to par on how you want them.

7. Photographer to Your Style

Make sure the photographer you choose has the same kind of style in mind for your wedding as you do. Check out their portfolio or website of example images. If you mostly see wild poses and silly faces, this may not be the photographer for you. Check out different styles to see which photographer will match your wedding wants and needs. And make sure to do reference checks on your photographer.

8. Happily Ever After the Wedding

After putting all of your effort into months and months of planning, the day suddenly comes, and the fairytale is over too fast. Cherish every second, and try focusing on the exciting future that is ahead to share with your newlywed!
