2019 is almost halfway through and so far, the runway has been ablaze with beautiful silhouettes, breathtaking designs and the perfect overall romantic aura that only the wedding season can have.
With styles such as sparkles all over and big bows that every 80s lover will want, the trends range from simplistic to over-the-top. In short, the theme is all dramatic and we’re definitely here for all of it.
So for those lovely brides-to-be who will be walking down the aisle toward the love of their life in the months to come, here is a quick lowdown on the many bridal trends of 2019 that you’ll definitely want to go with for your wedding dress!
1. Inspiration from Versailles
Ruffs, puffs and confection-like bridal skirts are back in fashion! Mostly inspired from the courtly dresses of yore, 2019 bridal fashion offers Victorian-style silhouettes, high necklines and gauzy full sleeves. Taking away from the traditional styles, this style is uber-romantic but over-the-top and dramatic. Hey, we’re not complaining!
Spread your wings and layer some plume, this trend focuses on adding plush to the dress’s form with an ethereal, edgy design. Somewhat reminiscent of the angel-from-heaven look, this style adds texture and flair to minimal-style dresses.
3. A Tinge of Blue
Harking back to trends from the older days, we’re seeing a revival of bridal gowns in color, mostly blue to commemorate the original color of love. Accentuated by a gold or silver sash or accessories, blue dress personifies the light airy feel we all want from a lace or tulle dress.
4. Say Yes to Capes
Going against the fashion icon’s Edna Mode’s words, capes are indeed coming back in fashion and making waves! Available in a number of styles, from full-length dramatic to sheer with embroidery, wedding capes are substituting veils, offering more movement and ease through their silhouette.
5. Say Yes to Veils too
Priyanka Chopra’s 75-foot tulle veil is probably what inspired designers to go out with veils this season! Excessively long and dramatic, many veils now feature embroidery, appliquéd lace pieces and more to add to that distinct look.
6. A Statement of Sleeves
Alongside bows, another large statement design addition is the sleeve! It’s up to you if you want raglan, puff or some detachable options for when the reception party gets going. So if you’ve got a traditional gown that could use some zhuzhing, adding some sleeves would work perfectly in adding that wow-factor!
7. High Hemlines
It’s all about making it short and sassy! If you’ve got the legs for it, wearing a pair of killer heels with a gorgeous, embellished tea length or mini dress would be the perfect choice.
