5 Unforgettable Wedding Dress Trends for 2019

This year’s Spring Bridal Fashion Week took place in New York and the trends that emerged left us dazzled. Not only do these trends set the tone from now until the upcoming season in 2020, but they also steer fashion-forward brides across the world in the direction of bridal dresses that fall into these style guides. If you are keen on which trends to pay attention to this season, then keep reading.

While there were far too many standout styles to mention, there were a few that take our top pick for the season.

  1. Sultry Thigh-High Slits

Simple, A-line bridal dresses with high side slits were mesmerising to watch on the runway, and it is definitely a trend that is popular with South African brides. Within our own collections, Stella York’s 6747 design is an impressive number that incorporates a side slit and is just waiting to be worn to a tropical beach wedding.

  1. Big, Beautiful Bows

This year’s runway saw a lot of large bows, which is always an unexpected, romantic detail. Our Stella York 6701 gown is one such design that captivates with lace, tulle, organza, and a detachable sash that is tied behind the back in a full, frothy bow.

  1. All That Glitters

Another trend at the forefront is heavily embellished bridal dresses full of intense, glimmering brilliance. If you love sparkling adornments and details, then you will struggle to find better than the shimmer of the D2457 gown by Essense of Australia. Created with pearl beading and sequins, this sheer gown is a marvel to behold.

  1. Old-Hollywood Glam

Heavy, luxurious fabrics demurely sauntering down the runway told us one thing – old-Hollywood glam is back. All the glitz and glam of the era between the 1930s and 1950s were brought back to life with smooth, glossy ballgowns and simple updos. Within our collection, nothing sings “glamour” more than our Alexia gown by Modeca. Crafted with Mikado satin, this heart-stopping, satiny wonder is a vision in ivory.

  1. Clean Lines

Of all the dresses displayed, none made a more significant statement than those with clean lines, streamlined silhouettes, and minimal details. At Timeless Bridal Couture, we believe that less is more, and with sleek bridal dresses such as Le Papillon’s Blanca, it isn’t hard to understand why.
