Top Wedding Dress Trends for 2020
If you’ve reserved a 2020 wedding, look no further, as we have the top ten wedding dress trends for 2020 to inspire every bride. Following New York Bridal Fashion Week, we saw looks from puffy sleeves to bridal jumpsuits that stunned the audience and gave a whole new meaning to bridal wear.
Surprise! Puffy-sleeve wedding dresses are back. However, this year it's with a modern twist. Designers from this year’s New York Bridal Fashion Week have channeled 80s and 90s fashion with a fresh new look. Today’s puffy sleeves range from bold and dramatic to delicately puffed, making this dress trend perfect for all brides. For those who prefer a simple look, try a silhouette gown with puffy sleeves and minimal jewelry. If you prefer a bolder and more dramatic look, this trend may be perfect for you. The more volume, the better!
Are you looking to add a splash of color to your dress? New York Bridal Fashion Week showcased several bold floral print gowns that added a fun aspect to the dress and caught the eye of the audience. Whether the gown is subtle or bold, floral print adds just the right amount of color to make you stand out even more on your wedding day. Soft white or ivory allows for a softer look, whereas yellow, pink, and blue creates more drama. Floral dresses are not only perfect for Spring and Summer weddings, but also for garden venues, vineyard venues, or any outdoor setting.
Ruffled gowns allow you to embrace your feminine and romantic side, and what better day to do it than your wedding day? Ruffles can add dimension to any style of dress, whether it be a mermaid silhouette or a ball gown. No matter the style, your wedding day will feel nothing short of a fairy tale with a ruffled dress.
Make a statement on your wedding day with a high-low dress. High-low dresses are short in the front and long in the back, giving you the opportunity to show off your legs and stunning shoes on your special day. This style of dress can be designed to fulfill all brides’ wishes. If you are more of a classic bride who prefers clean lines but also wants to “wow” your guests, a simple, lace high-low dress may be just what you’re looking for. On the other hand, if you are a bride who loves drama, adding ruffles and lace may be right for you.
Pearl embellishments filled the runway this year. Ranging from simple details such as pearl jewelry and shoes to dramatic pearl off the shoulder sleeves, designers from New York Bridal Fashion Week gave pearls a whole new look. Pearls are no longer considered to be only for traditional brides, but now for brides who wish to incorporate a modern chic style with elegance. For inspiration, check out Lela Rose’s pearl-covered off the shoulder dress, Morocco, from this year’s show that took our breath away.
Looking to add a little sparkle to your wedding dress? Metallic details may be exactly what you need. New York Bridal Fashion Week highlighted the beauty of metallic fabrics and shimmering embellishments by implementing metallic foils into their designs to produce an angelic effect. Bold colors such as orange and gold made appearances, as well as softer, silver accents. Metallic details are a sophisticated addition to any style of dress. However, if you feel you may have too much sparkle, try minimal jewelry and accessories to focus the attention on your dress.
Are you worried about your dress weighing you down on your wedding day? If so, an airy dress may be for you! With lightweight fabrics such as tulle and organza, your dress will feel light-as-air and stun your guests. Millennials are becoming more drawn to Light-as-Air dresses, as the gowns allow for a simple, yet beautiful look that will not prevent you from dancing the night away. Airy gowns can also be fit for any style of dress, varying from ball gowns to sheer sheath. Could it get any better than that?
One Shoulder Neckline
Designers from this year’s New York Bridal Fashion Week have found a happy medium between long-sleeve and thin strapped gowns with one shoulder dresses. One shoulder dresses allow for a more elegant look, and they work with any fabric or style, making this dress fit for any bride. This style of gown can vary from a classic style made with satin, to a sexy, form-fitting look with lace. One shoulder gowns are guaranteed to flatter your upper body and make you feel as beautiful as ever on your wedding day.
Bridal blazers, such as sleeveless jackets and jackets that are worn as mini dresses, have become growingly popular among brides due to their boldness and functionality. This style of dress will allow you to look chic and trendy, while also being comfortable throughout the evening. A bridal blazer will also eliminate the fear that many brides have, which is being weighed down or tripping over your gown. Turn heads on your wedding day with a bridal blazer style dress.
Similarly to the bridal blazer, bridal jumpsuits are becoming more popular in the bridal world. This figure-flattering style will draw all the attention on you and leave your guests speechless. Bridal jumpsuits fit with any look, whether it be a classic or daring style. Kaley Cuoco from the Big Bang Theory inspired brides all over the world by wearing a Tadashi Shoji Revel Long Sleeve Lace Jumpsuit to her wedding last year. Keep up with the trends for 2020 by adding lace, metallic embellishments, and pearl detailing to make your wedding day one of a kind.
