We’ve searched high and low to bring you the booming bridal trends of the new wedding season, so here they are.
Bridal blazer/ Suit
These are tipped to be massive in 2020 weddings and will take a bride seamlessly from day to night with the removal of the blazer for the evening reception. They’re also perfect for the bride wanting a simpler, more polished look for her wedding day.
Crochet makes a come back
Not for the faint-hearted bride, as crochet won’t hide any flaws, but rather will show your every curve off to all your wedding guests. We’re predicting sheer crochet gowns to be a firm favourite among boho weddings, as they lend themselves well to a relaxed wedding vibe.

Dip hems/ High-low Gowns
Short at the front and long in the back! These bridal gowns add an air of ‘Yes I have arrived!’ and also allow for a super long train to add a dramatic bridal effect. A lot of the high-low gowns we’re seeing also have floral or feathered accents to add a 3d feature finish.
Think Hollywood glamour dripping in diamonds, draped across a chaise lounge, and that’s the look we’re seeing with this fabric in wedding gowns. Simple but classically elegant.

An emerging trend at the end of 2018, feathered gowns are now in full force this season. We’re seeing a lot of feathered hems and feathered cuffs in bridalwear as well as full feathered trains that floats across the floor and the bride makes her entrance.
Bows are a trend that we thought would come and go, but they’ve been changed up for this season and made to look loose and effortless. Still a feature piece on the dress, but with one exception, loose bows are now featured on the front of many bridal gowns this season. This is one trend to watch.

They’re calling it the return of the renaissance and it’s easy to see why. Fluted, flared and puff sleeves are all in and adding a statement to the wedding gown. Once tipped as old-fashioned, sheer sleeves are also now back up in popularity, and allow the bride to show a little skin without being on ‘full display’ so to speak. Expect to see a lot of statement sleeves in the new bridal collections.

This may be a trend that remains firmly with the catwalks of London Fashion week, but bridal shorts are a firm favourite among Spring weddings! These could also be a big hit if you’re getting married abroad.
Brides aren’t just buying one dress anymore, they simply have to have a day and a night wedding gown. For the bride who wants the best of both, one gown just isn’t enough, and why should it be? Create an entrance at both the ceremony and the reception, with all eyes on you at all times.
