Five Bridal Trends for the Unconventional Bride From the Fall 2015 Runways

Earlier in October the hottest bridal designers sent their Fall 2015 collections down the catwalks for New York Bridal Fashion.  As you can imagine there shows were filled with lace, tulle and crystals, but here are my picks for the less-predictable bridal trends from the runways.  

The dramatic back.  When I hear that term I think of a completely open back, a big bow, or a long train, but the backside of these gowns take it to a daytime-soap-opera-level of drama, while the fronts are almost understated in comparison. 


I love this trend because it basically offers the bride a two-for one.  You can wear the capelet for the ceremony and then remove it for the party.  


For the brave bride, midriff-exposing two-pieces and cutouts were all over the runways.  


One of my favorite trends is the casual bride.  This doesn't mean unpolished, she just looks a little more effortless and a little less done-up.


And last, but not least, the anything-but-white trend.  Non-traditionally colored gowns have been gaining traction for a while, and it doesn't look like they are going anywhere.  There were still lots of blushes, but this runway show brought more blues and gold tones.
