5 of the Most Beautiful Wedding Dresses For 2015
Hello lovelies. Well, New York Bridal Fashion Week has been and gone for another year! NYBFW is just about my favourite time of year – I love seeing the talented designers of the wedding industry raise the bridal beauty bar each and every season. Just as I think they have achieved perfection, the next collection somehow wows even more than the last – and this year was no different! The catwalks were awash with lashings of the most luxurious fabrics, heavenly embellishments, elegant necklines and every silhouette you can imagine. Over the next week or so I will be sharing with you some of the most exquisite vintage inspired collections from NYBFW, as well as highlighting some of the key trends – and there are some beauties! For now though I am going to tease you with just a glimpse of 5 of my favourite looks (oh and whittling this list down to 5 was no mean feat!)
Immersed in the wedding world as I am now, it is hard to imagine anyone might not have heard of New York Bridal Fashion Week. But only 4 short years ago I knew nothing about it and as a bride-to-be may well have wondered why I would even want to know about it. So for any of you who may not understand (yet) what all the fuss is about – New York Bridal Fashion week is THE wedding industry event where bridal designers, from around the world, share their latest wedding dresses, gowns, shoes and accessories – basically everything that bridal boutiques will be brimming with next year. So you see, if you’re getting married in 2015 (or even 2016) then NYBFW is as important as those Pantone colour picks revealed last month (oh didn’t you see them? Take a look here and here if you missed that announcement).
Now I have piqued your interest, here’s my selection of 5 of the most beautiful wedding dresses for 2015….

2. Inbal Dror is known for her sultry, skin baring, figure hugging dresses that create the slinkiest of silhouettes, which is why this charming tea length gown really caught my eye on her runway……

Oh and if you’re a tea-length lover, then 2015 is the year for you, because the catwalk was full of them!
3. The statement train and exquisite lace of this gorgeous gown from Ines Di Santo just took my breath away……

4. There is nothing I don’t love about this dress from Monique Lhuillier – the colour, the sleeves, the neckline, the sparkle…..and don’t even get me started on the accessory!
(it looks like my long wished for crown revival may finally have started for Monique Lhuillier wasn’t the only designer to send her brides down the catwalk adorned with diadems!)
5. And last, but by no means least, this stunning floral wedding dress from Elizabeth Filmore……have you ever seen anything so romantic?

Ahhh, one day I hope to get there and to be able to report back to you having seen all of the glorious dresses in person!
Oh and if you’re wondering where the Claire Pettibone dress is, then you’ll have to pop back later! It was impossible to choose just one from my favourite designer’s “Gothic Angel” collection, so I thought I had better dedicate an entire post to it.
See you later!
