Fall 2019 Bridal Fashion Week is finally here and the wedding-worthy looks are stunning. From serious bling to regal capes and fun party dresses, we've got all the hottest trends coming to a bridal salon near you in the coming months. Read on to see some of our favorites.
Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.
These florals actually are groundbreaking. While botanical-inspired embellishments are a bridal staple, this vibrant, 3-D twist makes them feel brand new. Go for head-to-toe color to make a statement or opt for a colorful veil to give your look some more understated fashion-forward flair.
Voluminous bridal sleeves are back and better than ever. A far cry from the outdated versions of the '80s, these gauzier versions are pure romance, especially when paired with a curve-skimming silhouette.
High Low Hemlines
Party in the front, business in the back. A hybrid between a party dress and a full-on gown, high-low hemlines were the silhouette of choice this Bridal Fashion Week. We're into this look for two reasons: It allows you to show off your shoes, but still feels dressy enough to work for a variety of ceremonies.
Designers took a cue from Meghan Markle's reception dress by Stella McCartney this season, as streamlined gowns with mock turtlnecks appeared in almost every collection. What's to love about this more conservative neckline? It flatters the upper body and puts the focus on your face.
The cold shoulder trend gives any dress an instantly glam feel. The best part? It's totally versatile. Go classic with a one-shoulder dress with an architectural bow, or bring the drama with a full-on one-sleeve gown.
Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an ruffly mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number with long sleeves, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock for your reception or after-party.
Dresses With Pockets
They may be a small detail, but pockets have the unique ability to make a wedding dress feel that much more special. Plus, they're a great place to stash a tissue (or a whole bunch of tissues) on your day.
Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. This regal trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception.
