6 Trends That Dominated The Spring 2015 Bridal Runways

Today's fashion-forward brides expect something more from wedding dress designers than sweetheart necklines and lace, and boy did this season's bridal runways deliver.

While taking in designers' spring/summer 2015 collections during bridal fashion week, we made note of the trends we saw again and again on the runways. Check them out below:

    This romantic style ruled the runways this year and it's easy to see why: the princess look is perfectly bridal. Pictured here: a style from Marchesa's spring 2015 bridal collection.
  • Illusion Backs

    This sexy look is bound to turn heads down the aisle -- it certainly did down the runways. Pictured here: a look from Kenneth Pool's spring 2015 collection.
  • Oversized Bows

    When it comes to bows, the bigger the better -- at least according to wedding dress designers, who incorporated the look into their latest collections. Pictured here: a style from Monique Lhuillier's spring 2015 bridal collection.
  • Pearl Details
    This season's bling of choice is pearls, which made many appearances on the bridal market runways. Pictured here: "Marlis" from Ines DiSanto's spring 2015 collection.
  • Non-Traditional Colors

    Today's brides are embracing non-traditional colors on their wedding day and designers are taking note; we saw shades of green, blue, beige, pink and more on the runways this season. Pictured here: a look from Monique Lhuillier's spring 2015 bridal collection.
  • Lace Sleeves
    Kate Middleton popularized this look at her 2011 nuptials to Prince William -- and it doesn't look like it's going away any time soon. Pictured here: a style from Carolina Herrera's 2015 spring bridal collection.
