Unless you’re absolutely In love with all things traditional, the idea of a frilly white wedding dress might not be your cup of tea. And while convention sometimes reigns, so do new and ground-breaking trends for the brides that want a little more oomph with their dress. Here are theist wedding dresses of 2019 for brides of all personalities.
Show off those sexy shoulders and collarbones – Stella McCartney did it big this year, and so did Justin Alexander. This look is sophisticated without showing too much cleavage and adds a formal flare without feeling too stuffy or traditional.
Expect to see a lot of subtle gold inspired tones that are closer to a neutral but really bring out your natural glow. White wedding dresses are so yesterday, and a little boring if we’re being honest.
Goodbye puffy sleeves, dramatic trains, and extra bedazzled looks. This year is all about smooth, sleek, and simple, as Meghan Markle showed us. Try a low backed, high neck slim fitting dress with a mermaid bottom.
Don’t worry, you won’t leave the house looking like an ostrich. Instead, think high fashion interactions like pale pink feather sleeves or layered skirts. Plumes are glamorous and fancy, but can also be interpreted in a minimal way if you don’t want to look overly campy.
Something borrowed and something blue, so why not a blue dress? In periwinkle tones with an ombre finish, this might be the perfect way to stand out from the bridal crowd while still remaining as elegant as ever.
This high fashion hem-line isn’t for those who like to blend into a crowd. This year, we’re seeing the bridal look in new textures, shapes, and volumes, such as voluminous tulle or plush lavender feathers. It shows some leg and lets you flaunt your shoes while maintaining some sophistication.
Capes have always been a mainstay in the wedding world, but this year we’re seeing them in chic and innovative styles – try a sheer tulle one that doubles as a veil, or even a lace one built into your wedding dress.
Bows have never left the bridal scene, but sometimes they seem a little too conventional with an outdated concept of femininity – to make it more edgy, add a massive bow to surge your look with super-femme yet rebellious energy.
This elevates the idea of a barefoot bride in a boho wedding dress into something more high-fashion and swimwear appropriate. Try a swimwear inspired body suit bejeweled with diamond and paired with a floor length veil. Or perhaps try a sheer grown with a swim inspired liner beneath, if you’re not feeling that bold.
Dresses with subtle waist cutouts and cutout detailing in the back is trending this year, and it’s a versatile look that we’re obsessed with. This shows a little skin and also adds a more dynamic aesthetic to a minimal dress.
