Bridal Fashion Week was a wonderful whirl of fabulous fabrics and delicate designs, but at the end of the day, there is nothing like coming back home. Now that we’re back from the crazy and settled back into our normal daily routines, we wanted to take some time to share the trends from bridal fashion week that we are super excited about!
We have always been obsessed with bows – well…at least, I have – and we were so happy to see them on some beautiful wedding dresses! From large and structural to soft and delicate, it seems designers are happy to bring these beauties back into the spotlight.
Gone are the days of the lace that reminds you of your grandmother’s tablecloth. This year, designers are turning tradition on its head, bringing a freshness to the lace wedding dress that the modern bride will swoon over. Our favorite laces from this season brought in fun, bold florals and botanicals!
Listen. We love the tradition of a veil – every bride who has had an appointment here has probably heard me talk about how much I love veils. But it was hard to ignore some of the ways designers are accessorizing dresses that give veils a run for their money. This year was all about detachable trains, capes, removable sleeves and capelets.
If you’re ready to take the plunge, this 2020 is your year. Necklines have been moving in a more daring direction for a while, and this year is no different. What we loved is how designers took plunging necklines to a new level, finding ways to modernize necklines without making the whole room blush.
Actually, you know what? Just move over, sweetheart. JK – don’t panic. The sweetheart will always reign, and with its flattering shape, it’s easy to see why! But designers are mixing it up in new ways with necklines. More and more designers are working in necklines that will cause crowds to stop. Nothing turns heads like these fashion-forward necklines!
In case you haven’t heard, I love Meghan Markle and everything about her wedding to Prince Harry. Want to talk about the dress? Cool, I have an hour. What is my favorite part of her gown? How it put the focus back on the bride herself! We loved how each designer found their own spin on the clean and classic dress. There were clean gowns with all types of personalities and designs, so that all brides can rock the clean trend, no matter what their style is!
I know we just said clean was everywhere. But weirdly, as much as there were clean bridal gowns, there were dresses that sparkled (which is good for me, because I love glitter more than most fairies). Don’t worry though, this isn’t prom sparkle! Soft sparkle elements were added to tulle and interwoven into lace in beautiful, intricate ways that will make a bride dazzle.
So, what are your favorite trends? What are you excited about for 2020? Comment below to share your thoughts!
Can’t wait until Fall and want to try gowns on now (same, tbh)?! Contact us to set up an appointment.
which designer created the gown that shows in the header of this page? The one with the huge bow that actually seems to drape around the model’s shoulders?
Hi there! The designer is Allison Webb! The bow you are looking at is an accessory that was designed to go with her Thatcher gown, which is available to try on by request.
