We wanted to share our top picks for the best wedding gown trends of 2020 before the year gets too far along! Bridal fashion has moved beyond traditional style, and is heading towards showing off more personality than ever before (and this includes more inclusive sizing for the average Australian bride!), so you can really expose the most YOU version of a bride on your big day. Whether you have whimsical, romantic, boho, minimalist, classic, edgy or glamorous vibes, these 2020 wedding dress trends will help you show off your personal style.
1. MIKADO & STRUCTURE
We are taking it back to the Royal wedding of 2018. Whilst Megan Markle wore two picture perfect classic gowns, Mikado-satin has become the new “I do” gown. The premium fabric is generally made with a more structured pattern, giving the bride the ultimate fit. The fabric has been widely seen on Celebrities around the world, and we think it oozes class and elegance.
2. PLUNGING V NECKLINES
It’s safe to say we are obsessed with plunging necklines. Ever wondered what neckline would be most flattering for all bust cups? Its safe to say that a structured V neckline will get our vote. We are seeing designers from all over the world introduce this trend from as early as last summer! And we really hope it stays for month longer.
3. DETACHALE OVER SKIRT + TRAINS
If our recent Pinterest searches tell us anything, brides are fully on-board with concept of having 2 looks instead of one! And no, we do not mean 2 different gowns. The idea that you can have a wedding dress with a detachable overskirt for your ceremony, then slip it off, and have your ultimate party gown underneath. The trains in 2020 are perfect for whether your style is free-spirited, elegant, or ultra-glam, there is definitely a way you can combine the two-looks in one!
4. NON-WHITE DRESSES
The days of wearing white and ivory, are not over, however if you’re not feeling a bright white dress for your wedding, you’re in luck! Non-white dresses are IN for 2020 — and there are so many to choose from! Our designers carefully select fabric that will expose the incredible detail of the gowns, by using darker shade of either champagne, blush, nude or latte underneath the lace or embroidery. This way the lace has a contrast behind it, creating the most fabulous photos from afar.
5. OFF-THE-SHOULDER NECKLINE
Two of the most romantic styles meet together, where a traditional sweetheart neckline meet off-the-shoulder sleeves. This silhouette is flattering for all body types and adds a dose of romance to your wedding day vibe. We love a lace gown for a vintage-inspired look and Mikado satin for a more modern take on the silhouette!
6. FITTED CREPE
Tailored crepe wedding dresses are popping up in just about every bridal collection this year and it’s easy to see why. These gowns are the essence of sophistication and can be worn beautifully as-is or styled up with simple. Another valid reason we love crepe, is that the fabric features a light stretch, giving it some give when walking/dancing the night away. We also love the clean basic lines and low-key feminine edge.
7. PEARL DETAIL VEILS
While the days of 90’s style veils are well over, subtle sparkle veils are trending for 2020 and we could not be more excited! This time, we are seeing a glimpse of scattered pearls, or small dainty crystals throughout both cathedral and fingertip length veils. This look can be interpreted in a boho glam, or a sparkling mermaid goddess.
8. WINGS & CAPES
Whimsical brides — this one is for you! Add a little something unexpected to your bridal look without having to go overboard. We have seen a few of these photos pop up on social media feeds, and we are obsessed. Whether you are replacing the traditional veil look with some tulle wings, or simply wanting something different on your day! Wing tulle capes can make a major style statement in 2020!
