Top 8 Wedding Dress Trends for 2019-2020
You have got to love a cape! Be it separate or attached, caplet or full length, brides are wearing capes instead of more structured shrugs or boleros. A full length cape works beautifully as an alternative option for the more traditional veil.
Capes also work well as the ‘second look’.
The Megan Markle effect
The Duchess has redefined the princess look with more contemporary styling, bringing a touch of Hollywood to your wedding day. Ballgowns are also making a renaissance, slowly moving away from the more ‘body con’ looking dresses.
The colour palette continues to move away from traditional white and ivory adding nudes and pastels into the mix, not just in the fabrics or linings of dresses but also in trims, bows and other embellishments.
Why settle on one dress when you can have two? Many bride and grooms are opting for wedding day experiences and the attire to reflect this. Usually this involves one outfit for the ceremony, and a change in outfit for the evening. This can be anything from a full outfit change to a subtle accessory. Dress customization is allowing this trend to take off full speed, with Brides-to-be opting for jackets or capes or removable lace or tulle skirts.
Set to make a comeback with oversized and statement status, the bow can be anything from coordinated to the bridesmaids’ colour to a couture ‘origami’ feature.
Turtle necks or stand collar detailing on jackets, dresses or capes are all starting to make an appearance on the catwalks.
Pushing the boundaries for more alternative dress ideas is the jumpsuit. As weddings become less traditional and more unique, the jumpsuit works well for both style conscious brides or bridesmaids.
Brides are moving away from more traditional fabrics and laces for more unique or bespoke fabrics. 3D flowers and lace, unique patterns, beading, feathers, geometric shapes, and patterns. Metallics are also a huge new trend, and they will replace colours or other embellishments – so you can expect metallic detailing or even trims!
