Some of our favourite bridal trends that swept the catwalks in 2019 are set to stay. Think plunging V-necklines, reimagined for the season with ethereal embroidery and diamante detailing, figure-skimming bodices with slit skirts (so easy to dance in!) and, of course, the ultra-stylish scooped back that brides can't get enough of. Here are the trends set to grace the aisle with them in 2020.
Through the keyhole
Corset-like bodices are big on bridal catwalks this year, with many featuring a characteristic keyhole. More modest than a plunging V-neckline, but still with charm, romance and a contemporary style.
A scalloped train adds understated interest to the Romilda wedding dress by Morilee, while the crystal-beaded lace applique adorning the bodice oozes glamour.
Sleek is the new chic
Dreaming of a modern look that lets your figure take centre stage? The smooth Mikado fabric of the Ronald Joyce Donna gown lets the striking silhouette do all the talking for this contemporary wedding dress. Sleek lines and modern shapes make this style an excellent choice for a trendy yet timeless look.
Dresses layered in lace are perfect for brides looking for a bohemian style. This Ronald Joyce Daria gown will leave you feeling like you’re in a fairy tale. The floral lace applique bodice and hemline detailing combine with soft and billowing layers of lighter-than-air tulle in this gorgeous gown.
Although lace is most often used as the finishing feature on a gown, when it comes to 2020 wedding dress trends, it is also seen underlaid beneath a final floating layer to add a new dreamy dimension to the design.
All that glitters
When imagining 2020 wedding ideas sure to impress, this sparkling look is top of the list. Shimmer from head to toe in a glistening Galia Lahav gown. Semi-structured with a dramatic plunge neckline mirrored by a low scoop back, this dress has the wow factor.
Sun-drenched settings will really set its embroidered net that creates an iridescent effect and crystal embellished details alight, making it a great choice if you’re tying the knot in a seaside or alfresco wedding. Everyone deserves to sparkle on their big day!
Mix and match botanicals
Hot on the heels of the trend for greenery at weddings come dress designs featuring not only floral details but foliage too – a trend set to inspire 2020 wedding dresses. This long-sleeved gown by Galia Lahav features striking leaf detail with a glistening twist.
Flowers are also being redefined with an ever more detailed approach. Soft three-dimensional flower petals embellish this flirty design by Justin Alexander, while a playful sweetheart neckline adds romance to the gown.
Boho bell sleeves
Whimsical? Check. Ethereal? Check. Reminiscent of retro fashion? Check! Boho bell sleeves are another of the latest wedding dress trends set to take off in 2020.
If this sounds like your cup of tea, then you’ll love this Justin Alexander gown. With an illusion plunging neckline and dramatic low back, it features iconic draped sleeves that will make your heart flutter.
Planning a wedding overflowing with rustic romance? This look could be the one for you – and it promises to be one of 2020’s latest wedding dress trends.
Perfect for a stylish barn wedding, we think you’ll love the Nia design by Maggie Sottero, which features detailed folksy embroidery on the bodice in contrast with a soft flowing tulle skirt.
