This Seasons Wedding Trends! … By Grace Penney  images-5

[dropcap size=small]A[/dropcap]s 2014 comes to an end, the highly anticipated Wedding Season is almost upon us.  Among all the top designers, 2015 Trends sees the mix of tradition and modern elegance. Comfort and light fabrics are a common trend, as well as embellishment and striking back detail.



Ball Gowns

As always, Ball Gowns are part of every designer collection for 2015, after all every girl wants to be a princess, don’t we?  They are taking a much softer look, however, with the mix of lighter organza, tulle and lace fabrics.  As well as keeping with tradition, this is a very practical trend, as the bride can still wear the ‘Ball Gown’ without the discomfort of layers and layers of heavy fabrics, as seen in previous seasons.

Back Detail

Jaime_BacStriking Back detail can be seen on many styles in 2015.  This is in the form of lace, embellishment, pearl or even very low cut-out backs for the more daring bride! I always think the back of the dress is as important, if not more, than the front of the dress.  After all, it’s what most of us see during the ceremony and throughout the day.

Cover Ups/Boleros

Jordan_FroSurprisingly enough, Strapless dresses are still very much on trend.  Not every bride wants the ‘bare shoulder’ look however, so adding a bolero or cover up is a very clever idea.  These are made of sheer, chiffon, satin, lace or fur dependant on the style of the dress.  The bolero/cover up can look like it is part of the dress, provided it’s styled correctly and can look amazing.  Many of our brides choose to take off the bolero/cover up in the evening time, giving a more relaxed look for the party.

To summarise, although trends haven’t changed too drastically, designers have added twists to make the 2015 bride more comfortable, glamorous and stylish.

The full 2015 Bridal Collections have now arrived at Diamond Bridal and we can’t wait to show them off, with prices to suit all budgets.  These can be viewed on our website,, or why not make an appointment to see for yourself! We are very much looking forward to welcoming all the blushing brides-to-be to our boutique.
