This year’s Spring Fashion Week was exciting and bold, with plenty of new looks from legendary designers as well as room for the newest bespoke bridal names to emerge. We saw a lot of new trends in bridal fashion at New York’s Bridal Fashion week last week. Designers showcased their spring and summer 2019 collections. From sparkles to soft floral details and pronounced embellishments, here are five trends we saw on the runway that will be making their way to bridal shops in the coming season!
A little sparkle never hurt anybody! Designers are adding a subtle shimmer into their gowns. From Naeem Khan to Justin Alexander (a Your Dream Bridal exclusive designer), we noticed intricate hand beading and art-deco inspired details in many designs, both in looser fitting silhouettes and more form-fitting gowns.
Inspired by the highly anticipated Royal Wedding, designers highlighted luxe, textured fabrics that were fit for Windsor Castle. Clean and rich lines commanded the runway, as did a few regal crowns! With an eye on modern yet timeless looks, Elie Saab and Theia embraced this trend with bold, baroque ball gowns.
For a more elegant and sexy look we saw full capes worn over gowns or added overskirt trains. Wearing a cape gives a more sophisticated touch, while going for a overskirt train allows the bride to have a more formal look for the ceremony, and remove it for late-night dancing. Justin Alexander showed tailored, sophisticated designs that showed movement with an ultra-chic look.
Soft floral details
It’s the little details that count. Designers Alexandra Grecco and Ines Di Santo utilized intricate details and laser cut floral adornments to bring life to each design. The soft and simple floral touch gives a clear impression while not being too out there.
Pants & Bridal Jumpsuits
We’re so glad that bridal pantsuits are here to stay – and this season’s designs are even more versatile than ever. In fact, nearly every mainstream collection highlighted one stunning pantsuit option for the special day. Think sleek, sophisticated minimalist one-pieces from Viktor & Rolf and one of our new favorite designers, Gracy Accad, played with blush and lace overlays on a structured jumpsuit – we love!
These trends are meant to inspire our brides, to try and help you define your own unique style and bridal vision!
