Wedding Dress Trends For 2015

 

If there’s one trend that will continue to lead the way in the style stakes well into 2015 and beyond, it is the fashion for non-white wedding dresses.

 

Since A-list brides (Reese Witherspoon, Anne Hathaway and Keira Knightly to name just a few) began sashaying down the aisle in non-traditional tones, there has been a fashion frenzy of beautiful blush and champagne gowns to choose from and style-savvy brides the world over have been shunning classic white wedding dresses and opting instead for a gorgeous gown with a hint of a delicate dye.

 

Blossom into a radiant bridal vision in a fashion-forward petal pink dress or if classic-ware is more to your taste add a modern twist with a luxurious champagne shade.

 

Not only do pretty pink and bubbly toned wedding dresses create a unique and wildly romantic look, they are also guaranteed to put a sweet and sugary spell on your honey.

 

So if a pastel or champers hue is the direction for you then look no further as the talented design teams over at Benjamin Roberts Bridalwear have their finger on the vogue pulse and they have lovingly created a full selection of dresses with blush and champagne tints.

Bridal Make Up

 

Elegant and graceful ballet-inspired styles have danced across the catwalks and into our wardrobes over recent years and with the arrival of the AW14 pastel trend ballet-based fashion is set to continue. This supple style has lent itself well to the beauty arena too, where ethereal ballerina-inspired faces take center stage.

 

John Lewis have brought together the must-have cosmetics to create the ballet beautiful looks of the new season in their latest fashion and beauty magazine Edition. Not only picture-perfect bridal make up concepts but easy enough to try at home for the upcoming party season too.

 

So here’s a look at the my favourite products from the range that will have you ballet beautiful in no time…

 

 

Ballet slipper pink

 

Pastel shades are the core colours for the new season and this is being seen beyond the catwalks and into the beauty world too. Ballet slipper pink will definitely make the boys wink, so work gentle pink tones across your eyelids and add a hint of light lippy to create a pretty bridal, bridesmaid or party look this autumn.

It’s London Fashion Week so all eyes are fixed on the S/S15 catwalks, however back on the High Street A/W is the main event and there’s some style stories that are perfect for you and your wedding.

 

One of the biggest trends for the autumn season is one that will surprise you! Pretty candy colours have long been seen as spring-only shades, however nothing would brighten up a bleak, breezy fall morning like a dash of colour and soft pastels and romantic nude hues are a key trend this autumn/winter. Nude, blush, baby blue, soft grey shades, lilac, mint green are combined with neutral shades or teamed with black for a stylish statement.

So if you’re tying the knot this autumn or winter and you’re on the hunt for your bridesmaid dresses there’s an abundance of feminine frocks in girly shades to choose from. If your big day isn’t until next spring or summer then this is still the perfect time to pick up a pale bridesmaid dress as delicate colourways were seen on the catwalks at New York Fashion Week last week, so the pastel bridesmaid dress trend is set to continue – wouldn’t it be fantastic to get your colour theme set and be ahead with your planning!
