Direct from Milan, London, Barcelona, and New York bridal fashion weeks, explore bridal dress trends for 2019.
Metallic hues like gold, silver, and bronze make the perfect statement for the bride who is all about glitz and glamour. A bit of sparkle looks great coming down the aisle. Edgier metallic colors are replacing pastels for the bride who wants to infuse a hint of color into her look.
A more modest aesthetic has found its way into most bridal collections for 2019. Mock turtlenecks were on every bridal runway this season. Whether you are interested in barely there lace or an illusion style, a bridal gown with a mock turtleneck is worth checking out.
Nude or white tulle with lace detailing or intricate embroidery creates a sophisticated sheer “tattoo” effect on the bride’s skin. While it appears transparent on a hanger, the nude tulle gives a lovely tattooed effect on the body. This effortless style is good for most brides because the beautifully nude tulle blends well with a variety of skin tones.
This season, designers have embraced more intricate detailing which means bridal runways were full of gorgeous embellishments. Whether you prefer a floral motif or delicate beading, add-ons like these work for any season and allow you to express your personal sense of style.
Statement sleeves come in a huge variety of options. With choices like long, short, fitted, loose or oversized, statement sleeves can serve brides no matter their wedding’s season. Statement sleeves mean a bride can skip statement earrings and fussy veils and still achieve a dramatic look.
