As the year gradually comes to an end, it is normal for weddings to spring up almost every weekend. This rush to start 2020 as a couple will also result in a flood of new bridal trends as brides will either be emulating looks from their favorite regional and international celebrities or recreating their own unique looks based on bridal looks seen on the 2019 runways. Bridal trends 2020
Every year, couples come up with innovative new ways to personalize their wedding day. With creativity in general being at an all time high this year, we’re excited to see how this all translates into the weddings set to take place this holiday season into the first quarter of 2020.
However, based on the trends that have made much impact in the last couple of months, we know for sure that these trends are about to be seen everywhere in the coming months.
Here are the major bridal trends to expect…
1. Illusion tops
A lot of brides long for the strapless styled dress without giving up the straps and that’s where illusion tops come into play. Fashion-forward illusional necklines and backs combine with sheer yet sophisticated fabrics, layers, overlays and embellishments as desired by the bride.
Illusion dresses have continued to take an upward turn in the last few years and we expect to see this last through the 2019 / 2020 wedding season.
2. Custom bridal headpieces
Gone are the days when brides were stuck with a simple predictable tiara. We all know that accessories can make or break your look and today, brides have so many options. Bolder, bigger headpieces have been preferred by brides who seek to own their day without any holding back and this wedding season, we’re expecting to see even more dramatic headpieces, especially inspired by Beyoncé. In choosing your bridal accessories, you first have to select your bridal hairstyle as this will determine what accessory would fit your look.
3. Bridal robes
Before the bride gets into her dress, she definitely wants to capture the moment just after her makeup is done. The bridal robe is the perfect outfit for this moment and more brides are embracing the trend.
4. The color Orange
When it comes to choosing colors for the wedding, besides the couple choosing their favorite colors, a major determinant of the final colors chosen tend to come from inspiration as served from celebrity weddings. With Bambam and Teddy A’s wedding just gone, we are sure to see a lot of orange hues for traditional bridal looks this season.
5. Naturalista brides
In 2019, a lot of ladies literally went back to their roots – talking about natural hair in this case, and by that, we mean unrelaxed hair. With an abundance of updos and natural bridal hairstyle inspirations, this wedding season, we expect to see many brides diss their weaves and wigs, letting their natural afro hairstyle take center stage on their big day.
Brides are no longer restricted to wearing just white dresses on their big day. They are stepping out of the norm and creating their own rules. For a bride who wants something edgy, elegant, unique and fabulous, the jumpsuit is just the perfect bridal trend to cop this wedding season.
For the bride who chooses comfort over style, dissing heels and opting for flats, especially sneakers, is one of the best ways to spice up your look. There is no rule that states that a bride can’t favor comfort and practicality over convention and formality.
