2020 Wedding Dress Trends

During New York Bridal Fashion Week many designers debuted spectacular gowns that left many of us speechless. The upcoming wedding gown trends that we will soon be seeing this year are quite intriguing. Here is a breakdown of the top 10 trends fresh off the NYBFW runway:

  1. Floral Print. Straying away from the traditional white toned gown, floral prints add beautiful pops of color and detail to any wedding. Words from The Knot‘s Shelley Brown, “Whether they’re subtle and pastel, edgy and oversized or in the form of textural, 3-D embroideries, this cool-girl way to pull off florals adds whimsical visual interest to any wedding dress silhouette.”  
  2. Ball Gowns. Though these have always been a classic, this style wedding gown is making its way back into the hearts of many brides this year! Designers have created such a wide variety of beautiful ball gown silhouettes and they are all absolutely stunning. These gowns are not only fit for the classy brides but the chic edgy ladies as well. “The best thing about this attention-grabbing silhouette? It’s actually surprisingly versatile and works for most wedding styles. Go full-on Grace Kelly with heavy satin or Elizabethan with billowy sleeves. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn a few heads.” 
  3.  Ruffles. “If ever there’s a time to indulge your inner hopeless romantic, your wedding day is it—and it doesn’t get more romantic than this frilly, ultra-feminine detail.” This year’s ruffle trend is grabbing the attention of many. Designers have creates stunning gowns using careful placement and detail of ruffling and we cannot wait to see them take action down the aisle! 
  4. Airy Dresses. Light-as-air gowns stole the spotlight of New York Bridal Fashion Week’s Runways. Major ethereal vibes were given off without adding bulk or weight. Transitioning from your ceremony to the reception is sure to be a breeze in one of these gowns!
  5. Puffy Sleeves. Yes. These are a thing of the ’80s, but these ruffly and off-the-shoulder styles are all about tasteful romance. If you’re worried about overdoing it with this style, keep the accessorizing simple to let the beauty of the gown shine on its own. “Or, if you love this look but aren’t ready to fully commit, go for detachable ones you can take off for your reception or after-party.”
  6. Pants. Rather than going with a figure-flattering gown, pants are a sleek alternative. The white suits and jumpsuits are comfortable, of the moment, and totally figure-flattering. Details like 3-D embellishments, lace, and beautiful beading give these suits and jumpsuits a stylish upgrade.
  7. One Shoulder Necklines. This unique silhouette trend works for almost any wedding style. You can do classic with heavy satin, glam with a long detailed sleeve, or even Grecian with a beautiful tulle.
  8. Short Dresses. Short dresses are great for eloping, an excuse to show off some leg and gorgeous shoes, or just aiming for a casual wedding gown. Going for a short gown for the reception, rehearsal dinner, or bridal shower is also a great option.
  9. Sparkle. Sparkle is nothing new to the bridal world, but the runways of the Fall 2020 Bridal Fashion Week were full of glamorous sequins, metallic embellishments, and stunning tonal beading. Some of Lovella’s favorite shimmer and sparkle gowns are designed by the ever-talented BERTA, and we’re expecting more of this style in her new collections!

Tiered Skirts. Tiered skirts are a great alternative to wanting a gown with extra flair while avoiding the hassle of a full skirt or long train. This style adds beautiful texture, perfect for a stunning twirl!
