Spring 2015 New York Fashion Week just wrapped up, and watching the beautiful fashion walk down the runway made us sad to say goodbye to the warm weather. The hot colors of the season were orange and yellow. There was also a strong presence of graphic black and white. Crop tops, wide leg pants and jumpsuits and all shapes of skirts – from pencils to flippys – graced the catwalk. The neckline of the season was off the shoulder. In true spring fashion, there were a lot of floral patterns, but we also adored all of the feminine laser cut patterns, appliqués and interesting laces.
Below are a few of our Spring 2015 ready-to-wear runway favorites – some that would translate beautifully to a bridal gown and others that we are coveting for our own closets! We can’t wait to see how these trends are translated to the bridal runway during the second week of October when we head to New York for bridal fashion week!

Last week owner, Beth Chapman had the pleasure of participating in a Google + chat on incorporating color into your wedding. Beth was joined by celebrity event planner, Colin Cowie, floral designer, Karen Tran, and the discussion was moderated by founder of From I Will to I Do, editor, Anne Chertoff.
Below are Beth’s thoughts on incorporating color into your wedding:
I love color! Different colors evoke different emotions and the colors that you choose will set the tone for your entire wedding. One of the first steps in planning your wedding should be setting the color palate, as this will have an effect on all other aspects of your wedding- from the invitations, to the flowers, to the fashion.
In terms of incorporating color into your wedding attire, for the bride, I say less color is more. There is a current trend toward color wedding dresses. If you plan to wear a colored gown, I recommend that you opt for a very pale hue that is just a hint of color. Accessories are also a great way to incorporate color into your wedding day attire without overdoing it.
The place to make a statement with color is with your bridesmaids! I also love the idea of using your reception dress as a way to make a statement with color.

Now that a few weeks have passed after Spring 2015 Bridal Market and we have had a chance to absorb the trends, we got to thinking, “Wait a minute…”, “We already have many of next seasons hottest looks in store now!”
Take a peek at the Spring 2015 Trends post HERE and then look below at the wonderful gowns we have waiting for you to try on now so that you may be on the forefront of bridal fashion on your big day!
David Fielden’s ‘Isis’ and ‘Doris Day’ from Romona Keveza Legends are both swiss dot gowns but they have a completely different feel- go a little bit sexy with ‘Isis’ or achieve a classic look with ‘Doris Day’. You can create a sexy & demure look in the same gown by wearing an sheer long sleeve like that of ‘Gwendolyn’.
Anne Barge ‘Chatham’ is two gowns in one, a sweet shorty and a grand ball gown- this option one of the most popular trends on the Spring 2015 runway! Modern Trousseau offers even more customization with their front slit tulle skirt, put this creation over any gown for a custom, one-of-a-kind look!
Clean and classic was all over the Spring 2015 Runways. With lace dominating for the last few years, it was quite refreshing to the see the reemergence of these sophisticated silhouettes. We can’t get enough of the gowns above from Modern Trousseau, Augusta Jones and Amsale.
Alternatives to traditional lace patterns also graced the 2015 Spring runways. Jacquard prints, stripes, pattern, texture, unique laces- you name it! Above are a variety of one-of-a-kind fabrications already in the boutique from Anne Barge, Hayley Paige, Theia and Modern Trousseau.
