Jenny Packham has been designing wedding dresses since 1988, when she launched her eponymous fashion line. In a conversation with HuffPost Live on Tuesday, the fashion fave of Kate Middleton revealed the styles she thinks brides can look forward to when shopping for wedding dresses this year.

"I think we're seeing a lot of veils coming back," she said. "I don't think people have wanted to wear veils for quite a few years, and now we're seeing quite a few brides doing that... but I don't know, there's something very romantic [about them]."

Additionally, the designer thinks we'll see more form-fitting numbers walking down the aisle.

"Bridal wear has really turned a corner, actually," she said. "[It's] moving much more in line with fashion now. We're seeing a lot of influence from the red carpet and it's become much more slimmer, more ethereal, and actually sexier. We're seeing kind of low backs and figure-hugging things."

Packham boiled down her 2015 wedding dress trend predictions to these three styles: "Long sleeves, much more figure hugging, and I think lace is very big at the moment."
