2019 Wedding Gown Trends Twice a year, New York Bridal Fashion Week attracts the best designers in the industry. While they all bring their own flavour to the runway, here are some of the main trends for 2019. by Karine Robidas Jumpsuits Minimalistic Made of feminine lace or directly inspired by the gentlemen’s wardrobe, jumpsuits are everywhere this season. Choose a plunging neckline for a sexy effect and pair it with a regal cape for the “wow” factor. Call it the “Meghan Markle Effect,” minimalistic gowns are in full bloom this season. Choose an A-line skirt with spaghetti straps for that ‘90s touch, long sleeves for a sleek look or ornate it up with an oversized bow to add a whimsical touch. Metallic & Heavy Appliqués Once again this season, flower appliqués are taking over the bridal industry. While most were white on white in previous years, this time it is all about metallic. Gold, bronze or silver, it’s time to let it shine! Capes Worn over a ball gown for a dramatically regal effect or trailing behind a jumpsuit for a modern twist, capes are a great option for brides who don’t want to wear a veil but still want to make a grand entrance. 88 Lavender Lavender is one of the numerous pastel colours that made its way to the catwalk. Perfect for an edgy but still appropriate look, pastel dresses are here to stay. Collars While plunging necklines are still very present, high necklines bring a refreshing twist to the bridal industry. Choose a sophisticated lace or a sheer material to delicately showcase your collarbone.
