If you are choosing your wedding dress in 2015, consider yourself a lucky gal, because you will have some of the most beautiful and unique gowns to choose from!

Wondering where to start? We've put together a list (in no particular order!) of the top 15 wedding dresses you HAVE to try on in 2015!

  1. Blush by Hayley Paige 'Giada'

    model wearing Blush by Hayley Paige Giada goddess chiffon slim a line wedding dress with beaded wait and straps, standing on a palm tree limb in front of the ocean

    The Giada gown by Blush by Hayley Paige offers a stylish and romantic silhouette; perfect for an outdoor or destination wedding. The flowy chiffon skirt will billow softly in the wind and the beaded straps and belt are sure to glisten in the sunlight. The delicately ruched chiffon bodice is also oh-so right; thanks to the perfectly cut, cross-over V-neckline.

  2. Enzoani 'Jocelyn'

    Model wearing Enzoani Jocelyn trumpet lace wedding dress with silver beaded and embroidered floral and leaf pattern on bodice and cascading down hips

    While lace may have been on nearly every runway this season, the beautiful thing about it, is that there is an endless number of ways this beautiful fabric can be used. Whether it's a re-embroidered lace trumpet gown, beautifully enhanced with intricate silver embroidery, like Jocelyn by Enzoani (above), or a romantic ball gown with a delicate chantilly lace bodice, we predict that lace will continue to wow us for many seasons to come.

  3. Jim Hjelm '8515' & '8500'

    Model wearing Jim Hjelm style 8515 blush colored tulle ball gown wedding dress with white floral pattern, deep v neckline and sheer fitted sleeves.

    Model sitting on stone stairway weraing Jim Hjelm 8500 blush colored tulle ball gown wedding dress with white floral pattern, and straight strapless neckline

    Style '8515' by Jim Hjlem is the perfect gown for brides looking to make a fashion statement with their wedding dress. The gown's blush color and sheer sleeves are definitely on point this season and the white embroidered flowers add the perfect amount of whimsy to this romantic silhouette. Not sure if you can pull off the deep V-neckline and fitted sleeves? Sister style '8500' offers the same romantic skirt and embroidered tulle, paired with a modern, straight neckline.

  4. Rosa Clará 'Serena'

    model wearing sheer short white lace gloves and rosa clara serena wedding dress with aline skirt with soft pickups and fitted lace bodice with straight neckline

    Classic and modernity collide with Rosa Clará's Serena gown. The elegant silhouette and tailored lace bodice channel the classic beauty of Audrey Hepburn, while the playful pick-ups, straight neckline, and beaded belt add a touch of modern to the gown.

  5. Christos 'Heidi'

    Model wearing Christos Heidi slim aline wedding dress with fitted lace trumpet skirt and tulle aline overlay, fitted sweetheart lace bodice and small halter strap.

    If we were going to play favourites, 'Heidi' by Christos certainly makes it into our top three. The gown is available in a subtle blush tone and the soft tulle overlay and scattered lace are the perfect counter to the figure-hugging trumpet skirt beneath. Oh, and did we mention that the molded bustier lace bodice is our version of perfection?

  6. Monique Lhuillier 'Moonlit'

    Model wearing lilac purple Moonlit wedding dress by Monique Lhuillier. Tulle bodice with scoop neckline and delicate embroidered bodice that cascades down the tulle ball gown skirt.

    'Moonlit' by Monique Lhuillier is simply magical, mystical, magnificent... you get the idea! Colored wedding dresses were front and centre at the Fall 2015 New York Bridal Market, and Monique Lhuillier certainly rose to the occasion, with her beautiful pastel-hued bridal gowns. This lilac colored ball gown, with its delicately beaded & embroidered tulle, was a favourite of ours, but choosing just one from the breathtaking collection was certainly a difficult decision.

  7. Maggie Sottero 'Aurora'

    Model standing in front of sheer white drapes wearing Maggie Sottero Aurora blush colored fit and flare wedding dress. Beaded and embroidered fitted elongated torso bodice with layered organza skirt.

    It would appear that we have a bit of a color trend unfolding in our top 15! 'Aurora' by Maggie Sottero made the list for its gorgeous blush tone, as well as its intricately beaded bodice and dramatic skirt of cascading organza. The figure-hugging elongated bodice and sweetheart neckline will flatter a curvacious bride's figure and the ruffled skirt adds a bit of playfulness to this otherwise glam gown.

  8. Truvelle 'Nicolet'

    Model wearing Truvelle Nicolet slim aline wedding dress with lace deep v neckline and ruched chiffon bodice. Rose colored ribbon at waist and slim aline chiffon flowy circular skirt.

    Truvelle's 'Nicolet' gown channels the brand's 'effortless chic' aesthetic perfectly. The circular cut chiffon skirt creates a full layer that seems to dance as you move, and the scalloped lace deep V-neckline is somehow subtly sexy AND feminine, all at the same time. Oh, and let's not forget the latte grosgrain ribbon at the waist, which is ah-mazing!

  9. Rosa Clará 'Samba'

    Model wearing Rosa Clara Samba elegant wedding dress with tailored pleated ball gown skirt and molded loace bodice, with straight neckline. Inset photo of model wearing Samba lace bateau neckline bridal jacket.

    There will always be a place for classic elegance in bridal, and Samba by Rosa Clará is no exception. Precision tailoring creates a ball gown with perfectly placed pleats and an immaculately cut bodice. The bow belt and the soft lace detail along the bodice add that perfect, feminine touch. Brides looking to add an extra bit of personality to this classic style will love the removeable lace jacket (inset), complete with a bateau illusion neckline and cap sleeves, which you can see in full here.

  10. Casablanca Bridal '2195'

    Model standing on a mediterranean terraza wearing a lace fitted trumpet wedding dress by Casablanca Bridal with sweetheart neckline and portrait lace sleeves.

    '2195' by Casablanca Bridal is scattered with an intricate lace pattern throughout its figure-flattering fit & flare silhouette. Instead of a full lace gown, each piece has been placed with care to create this gorgeous, eloborate pattern. We especially love the way the scallop has been placed at the hip and along the portrait neckline and hem.

  11. Nicole Miller 'Taylor'

    Model standing in front of light grey wood panelled wall wearing Nicole Miller Taylor fitted trumpet charmeuse wedding dress. Sweetheart neckline with slim double straps.

    'Taylor' by Nicole Miller is made with their signature stretch silk fabric, which hugs your curves and sculpts the body perfectly. The cross-over ruched bodice is modern and fresh, as are the metallic double straps that frame the shoulders. The high slit also needs mention, as it is a daring break from the ordinary, when it comes to bridal fashion.

  12. Bliss by Monique Lhuillier '1518'

    Model wearing Bliss by Monique Lhuillier 1518 ball gown with beaded and embroidered lace bodice, jewelled belt at waist, and layered tulle skirt with horsehair layers.

    We've been in love with Monique Lhuillier's diffusion line since it first launched and year after year, her Bliss collection continues to amaze. '1518' is a beautiful ball gown that is grand, elegant, and fun all at the same time; we imagine brides will have a fabulous time wearing this dreamy dress on their wedding day.

  13. Maggie Sottero 'Verina'

    Model sitting on the end of a chaise lounge wearing Maggie Sottero Verina sheath beaded lace wedding dress with sheer illusion bateau neckline and fitted sleeves.

    'Verina' by Maggie Sottero offers brides an elegant lace bridal sheath with touches of vintage elegance. The illusion bateau neckline, 3/4 length sleeves, and beaded lace channel the femininity and glamour of the art deco era. Verina would be an amazing gown for a wedding at a grand estate or perhaps an art gallery.

  14. Astrid & Mercedes 'Lovely'

    Model wearing simple and fun aline bridal gown style Lovely by Astrid and Mercedes. Taffeta circular cut skirt with wide ruched waistband, ballerina cut lace bodice and small spaghetti straps.

    This past bridal market saw the launch of Astrid & Mercedes; the diffusion line of talented Canadian designer, Lee-Ann Belter. Lovely is the perfect name for this dress, because this dress is just that: lovely! This a-line dress is effortless and fun, with a touch of daring; thanks to its chantilly lace accented ballerina bodice and low back.

  15. Lazaro '3503'

    Model wearing blush colored lace wedding dress by Lazaro, style 3503 from the Spring 2015 collection. Beautiful molded lace sweetheart bodice with beaded and embroidered belt at waist.

    Last, but certainly not least, we have Lazaro's '3503', and although we said we weren't picking favorites, this dress certainly makes our top three! Rose-coloured chantilly lace and a sheer corseted bodice create a beautiful silhouette that is flawlessly accented by a decadent jeweled belt at the waist. And, if it wasn't perfect already, the lace mini underlay beneath the sheer lace skirt takes this dress one step further and truly sets it apart from the rest.

Last week, we shared part-one or our two-part editorial with Blush Bridal and Coco Events & Weddings, and we are very excited to reveal the rest of this gorgeous story! Part-one revealed a playful and feminine side to Rosa Clará and Soft by Rosa Clará; two of the newest additions to Vancouver's Blush Bridal.

In part-two, the impressive juxtaposition of this editiorial is revealed; illuminating an entirely new, dramatic side to Rosa Clará. Lara Taylor, of Vancouver-based Coco Events & Weddings, led the creative direction for the editorial and shares the inspiration behind it:

"Inspired by our travels in the East, and our years living in Southeast Asia, we were energized by the myriad of textures and colors in the décor used for celebrations, and in places of worship. We were captivated by the use of rich, strong, metallic, jewel tones and weighted fabrics; contrasted against light and delicate florals, folded papers, and lights.

This shoot was meant to portray the emotions and feelings brought about by two opposing elements. In part one, the paper floral wall created an intricate and whimsical canvas for portraying the delight and playfulness evoked by the anticipation surrounding one's wedding, that one magical day. In part two, the rose gold metallic wall acted as a bold contrast; showing elegance and expressing an intrinsic thread of tradition."

We wanted to have a fabulous, inspiring start to the new year, and decided that the perfect way to do just that, was to debut part one of our two-part editorial with Blush Bridal and Coco Events & Weddings.

Rosa Clará and Soft by Rosa Clará are two new (& gorgeous!) bridal lines that Blush Bridal introduced to Vancouver brides this past year and here at Bride.Canada, we are thrilled to help Blush formally debut the lines. Based in Spain, Rosa Clará gowns standout for their high quality fabrics and precision tailoring. Best of all, Rosa Clará offers something for everyone; whether it be a soft and romantic lace dress, a vintage-inspired beaded sheath, or a refined and elegant ballgown.

Lara Taylor, founder & co-owner of Vancouver-based Coco Events & Weddings, expertly produced both the set design and styling for our editorial. Every consideration was taken when choosing the elements that would best portray all sides of Rosa Clará. The inspiration behind the editorial is best told by Lara:

"This shoot was meant to portray the emotions and feelings brought about by two opposing elements. In part one, the paper floral wall created an intricate and whimsical canvas for portraying the delight and playfulness evoked by the anticipation surrounding one's wedding, that one magical day. In part two..." (sorry, you will have to wait until part two to find out the rest!)

Melissa Johnstone of Sugar & Soul Photography brings us this sweet, fairy tale inspired winter styled photoshoot, set in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Loosely inspired by the Brothers Grimm tale of Hansel & Gretel, this editorial embodies all of the fun and festive possibilities of the holidays.

We will leave the rest of the tale to Melissa, who tells it the very best:

"Heidi and Markus embark on a journey to get married on a magical winter day in the forest. Leaving breadcrumb trails behind them, (in case they get lost!), they discover a witches hut decorated in candy. They say their vows amidst an archway of candy, then head into the hut for their whimsical reception - complete with snow globes, pretzels, and lots of holiday treats and warmth by the fire!"

A private island off the coast of Newfoundland was the perfect setting for Heather & Adrian's quintessential maritime wedding. Every element of the wedding was crafted with love by the couple, their family, or friends: from the handbuilt driftwood arch that they married under, to the handpainted signs, lovingly inscribed by friends.

Alex Stead of Alex Stead Photography did an amazing job capturing the couple amidst the beauty of the awe-inspiring natural surroundings, as well as portraying the heart-warming comfort of marrying in front of your closest friends and family.

While the gorgeous driftwood arches are close to the top of our list, our absolute favourite part to this Atlantic Canada affair? The bonfire, complete with s'mores, of course!

Abbi & Chris were married this past August in picturesque Banff, Alberta, under blue skies and in the company of their loving friends and family. The couple wanted the world to surround them on their wedding day and the Juniper Hotel & Bistro was the perfect location to make that dream a reality.

Nicole Modde, of NC Photography, photographed the couple's wedding day and succeeded in capturing the beauty all around!
