New York Bridal Fashion Week took place in April. This semi-annual event gives fashion designers a chance to debut their Spring 2015 collections and feature the latest trends for the upcoming season. Most of these trends stray far from the typical white lace and princess gowns we typically see. There are some trends that will be reflected in wedding invitations and favors. It’s important to take note of these trends as you plan your wedding.

Plus-Size Wedding Dresses

There were a lot more plus-size wedding dresses than in the past. Jenny Packham was one of the major designers to feature plus-size wedding dresses in her shows. The models walked down the runway in soft gray and purple wedding dresses with lace sleeves and sheer capes. This runway show proved that every bride is beautiful, no matter what her size.

Marijuana-Inspired Lace Details

Bridal Fashion Week also proved that there’s something for every bride. Designer Liancarlo took a risk by featuring a wedding dress with marijuana lace details. If you take a close look at his dress, you will notice the marijuana leaves.

This doesn’t entirely come as a surprise. This came on the heels of Colorado couples saying “I do” with marijuana party favors and celebrations. Some went as far to include marijuana bars and weed bouquets.

Floral Print Wedding Dresses

Brides will be opting to wear floral print or hand-painted flowers on their wedding day. They’re also looking to add these features to their party invitations and décor. Marchesa featured a midnight ball gown with purple, black and white flowers. The designer also collaborated with a party favor company to create a limited-edition collection of matching wedding invitations.

You don’t have to spend big bucks to get hand-painted wedding favors and décor for your big day. You can create your own personalized wedding favors to match your gown. You can choose from a wide variety of prints, including the popular Thank You Flowers.
