Planning a wedding often involves a heavy dose of forward-thinking, as the average length of an engagement is 18 months! For the brides who want to make sure their wedding is special and memorable, spotting future trends can serve as a source of inspiration. If you’re a bride, mother of the bride, or bridesmaid this article is the perfect one for you as we will be diving into what’s ahead with the most unique, fashion-forward and stunningly beautiful wedding trends of 2019 and 2020!
Silhouette and Style Inspiration: The Gown Edition
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding of the decade fueled the inspiration for many designers and fashion houses. The look that derived from this was understated elegance. We expect to see gorgeous brides walking down the aisle in gowns with long trains, extravagant veils, and a focus on the little detail. Fabrics of the season include a move away from today’s popular boho-inspired layered lace, to subtle texture and dense matte finishes.
We find future brides are focused on finding their unique spin on wedding tradition - and cherishing family more than ever. They take something borrowed to the next level by incorporating their mother and grandmother into their special day. Unbox the Dress lets brides redesign Mom’s dress to wear as their Getting Ready Bridal Robe, or smaller accessories like a Bouquet Wrap.
Suits & Jumpsuits
On the opposite end of the spectrum, moving away from traditional and closer to the risk takers, we find trends highlighting women’s suits and jumpsuits strutting down the aisle. Since weddings are increasingly becoming more intimate we find destination and smaller-scale venues the place for this fierce look. Women are courageous in wearing culottes, wide palazzo suits and slim-fit pants. Bridal designers add their own feminine flair by adding delicate details, or with bolder additions like a detachable skirt to add volume, texture, and inimitability to the dress.
Mermaid & A-line ClassicsThe mermaid as well as the A-line silhouette still holds true to beauty and elegance. These are two gowns that will forever flatter women which keeps these styles seamless and elegant. The A-line dresses of this season are mostly constructed with fabrics that are minimal and memorable, allowing the accessories to express the beautiful simplicity of the bride. The mermaid silhouettes are constructed with multiple layers creating dimension and emphasis on the sensual body shape.
Capes & Stoles
Does your bride have a love for a little bit of drama?You may want to consider the classy yet slightly theatrical trend featuring capes and stoles that’s hit the runways. Designers have described this creation as an evolution of the traditional veil. As these gowns floated down the runway some capes draped over the shoulders like a cloud whereas others were encrusted with rich décor from top to bottom. This trend reaches a unique demographic as it offers a fairy tale-like and ethereal emotion.
