Are you wondering what is trending in the world of wedding gowns? It highly depends on the designer because different creators have different visions, and definitive trends are no longer something real in the wedding world. The real brides decide many trends and it’s understandable to see some classic models every year on the runaway. But some influences define every season. For example, Meghan Markle’s long-sleeved gown was a major trendsetter for 2019. 2019 was the year of minimal dresses, dresses that allowed the bride to shine and to expose her beauty.
But what is 2020 going to be about? Are we going to see puffy sleeves again? Will the minimal dresses continue to be a trend? Here is what we know.
When the businesswoman meets the bride the result is a bridal blazer. They come in romantic white and nude hues and are made from soft and graceful materials, like lace and silk. While some designers promote blazers as standing dresses, for the brides who are not afraid to show some leg on their wedding day, others opt for blazers and leg trousers for the brides who want to challenge their grooms with an elegant suit. A simple pair of ivory trousers paired with a crystal-embellished blazer with feathers at the bottom works wonderfully for a modern bride. Lace capes are also a thing for bridal blazers, they make the outfit look more festive. And did we mention that shorts and a long blazer are also a thing this season?
The ‘70s will have a major influence on the models of dresses women will wear in 2020 for their wedding day. From iridescent fabrics used for princess gowns, to wide-leg jumpsuits for the brides who don’t want to wear a traditional gown and to sequin outfits. These outfits are perfect for the brides who want to change their princess gowns with something fit for a party. The disco trend can be spotted on all types of gowns; with halter necklines, with a thigh-high slit and even with mermaid bottoms. If you embellish them with some fabulous feathers, they are the perfect attire for a ‘70s inspired event. When wearing a disco dress you should not stop at the outfit, you should extend it to the eye shadow and hairstyle.
Only because you don’t like to wear a dress it doesn’t mean that you cannot keep the va-va-voom of the train. All brides want a long train to flow behind them when they walk to the aisle, and now you can have it even if you are wearing a suit. The rise of bridal pants is simply epic, more and more women prefer this outfit for their big day. However, only because you are wearing pants on your wedding day, you don’t have to look like the groom, you can bring some drama to your look with a train. The perfect wedding attire doesn’t have to be a gown, a pair of sleek trousers with a huge bow that ends in a train would make you look as gorgeous as if you would wear a Cinderella dress. Another amazing way to integrate a train into a bridal jumpsuit is to add a long lace cape to the back. And if you want something modern you can opt for a tuxedo jacket with a long back cummerbund.
Are you ready to have a wedding inspired by the Great Gatsby? If you want your wedding guests to have a glimpse of the old Hollywood glam then you should wear a dress inspired by this period. A wave of silk gowns that complement the body are making their debut on the runaway and you should at least try one if you are getting married in 2020. These dresses are not far away from Meghan Markle’s one, they maintain the simple cut and the sleek line, but they come with a pop of glam. Longer sleeves that cover the entire hand, higher necklines, and mermaid-looks for the bottom, all these characteristics take the Duchesses’ dress to a new level. Ball gowns are part of this trend, most of them being made from silk that makes the fabric flow in waves that make you look angelic and elegant at the same time.
Yes, puffy sleeves are going to be a hot trend even in 2020. When people felt in love with Meghan’s sleeves, and they thought that they cannot be more elegant and dramatic, wedding gown designers have brought back Renaissance Romance inspired sleeves. They will make you look as elegant and romantic as a muse from a poet’s lines. Dresses with puffy sleeves come in countless romantic hues, from ivory, to bloom and even flower-printed ones.
