- Minimal and ModernOdette — Romantica
From the front, this dress by Romantica is a perfect trendsetter for 2015: bridal minimalism is all the rage and that means satin, square cuts and sharp tailoring to create a chic look for a bride. There is no beading, embroidery or lace at first glance, creating a clean and modern look — but the back features a beautiful cowl scoop, and a lace inset provides a traditional touch.

- Half SleevesStyle D1748 — Essense of Australia
For a summer bride, half sleeves provide elegance without turning the temperature up too much — and if you opt for an “illusion” jacket, you can remove the sleeves after the ceremony. This fit-and-flare gown by Essence of Australia features a gorgeous scalloped hem and train and a figure-flattering bodice with swirls of lace embroidery. The lace illusion jacket is available separately.

- Return of the FishtailStyle 7039 — Mark Lesley
The fishtail — or mermaid — shape dress has never really gone out of fashion, but it’s making a very welcome return as a top trend this summer. Traditional fishtail dresses were often made with satin, but this season, lace is the way forward. This beautiful lace fishtail dress by Mark Lesley is framed by straps that cross at the back.

- Tasteful TiersStyle 8779 — Justin Alexander
We’ve seen many structured tier dresses in recent years, but this season’s tiered trend is much softer and dreamier. Captured perfectly here by Justin Alexander, this beautiful tulle and silk dupion ball gown, featuring a strapless neckline, has gentle, asymmetric tiers that tumble down from the figure-flattering beaded belt.

- Exquisite IvoryEliza 69018 — Ronald Joyce
Ivory is a big trend this year as bridal fashion moves away from nudes and back into classic fashion territory. An ivory dress with yellow undertones is great if you have a fair complexion or pink undertones in your skin; if your skin is darker, an off-white ivory will look amazing. This timeless dress by Ronald Joyce has a ruched taffeta bodice on a tulle princess skirt and is available in ivory, white or champagne.
