At Formal Dress Shops we have the pulse on this year’s wedding trends from unique décor to must have styles. See what's hot for 2015. 

Extravagance is Back

Fancy black-tie weddings are returning in a big way. Couples are planning extravagant details like dramatic entrances, detailed cakes, champagne towers, hand-delivered invitations, valets to escort guests, and the list goes on. This is your big chance to go all out Cinderella style with a big gown and a tiara.


Creative Wedding Venues


Unique Wedding Venues are becoming more and more popular with couples booking spots like private estates, castles, and museums. The good thing about interesting wedding venues is that the décor is included.  The space will come with its own interesting ambience. If you decide to go this route keep in mind that the set up may be more complicated than a traditional venue.

Multiple Dresses

If you can’t decide which dress to wear when at your wedding . . . why not choose three! Fashion-forward brides are choosing three gowns for each part of their special day. We suggest a ball gown for the ceremony, something sleek for the reception, and a fun short dress for the after-party.

Fancy Food

What’s taking center stage at weddings? The Food! Unique ideas like doughnut desert walls and hanging salad stations are cropping up. See if your caterer can help you come up with something creative or hirer a food stylist to help you come up with something that rocks.

Marsala Color Palettes

Pantone’s color of the year is Marsala, a rich wine red that will make your wedding stylish and elegant. Go romantic by pairing it with a dusty blue or pink; or pair with a gold hue for a more glamorous, rich feel. This color is perfect for bridesmaid gowns, linens, flowers, or decorative accents.
