If you’re planning your wedding for 2019, you might be wondering what will be on trend for next year’s bridalwear? We’ve recently had both London Bridal Fashion Week and the New York Bridal Fashion Show, so it’s safe to say the dress trends have arrived. There are plenty of classic designs for those who want to stick to the romantic traditions but for those who want to switch it up a bit, there are some unique, fashion forward styles available.
Big, voluminous ball gowns have always been a popular choice but 2019 sees them bigger and bolder than ever. They were seen on catwalks sporting extra volume, cut-out shaping and tiers. They make the perfect choice for those brides who want to make a big statement with their dress.
Pure romance is what bow motifs symbolise and it’s a look that designers return to time and again. Next bridal season sees the bows going oversized and taking on a more structural shape. Featured on dresses with long, sweeping necklines and low backed numbers, the use of bows is a modern take on a classically romantic dress.

Blue has made an appearance in designer dresses for the 2019 season. Inspired by Cinderella, blue princess ball gowns have been spotted at a number of different bridal shows. The shades are soft or ombre and signify something really different being offered for those brides who don’t necessarily want white.
Capes have been all the rage recently and a very popular cover-up choice. They are not the only option though, with jackets being spotted in some of this season’s bridal shows. The most unusual is the wedding trench coat seen at Innes Di Santo and Justin Alexander. They were rather special varieties of trench coats however, with lots of lace and sheer fabric for a soft, romantic look.
Recently there has been a resurgence in the popularity of pearls in wedding jewellery and it seems that trend has now transferred to the dresses themselves. Pearls have been seen sewn into stunning sheer necklines and backs. They are also being used to add texture, sparkle and style to the ever-popular wedding cape.
Again, for those brides who don’t want white or ivory, metallics offer a perfect medium between choosing white or choosing a colour. They look brighter than ivory or white but don’t make such an obvious statement as colour. Metallic wedding gowns have been making a splash at bridal catwalks a great deal this year, with shades including shimmery rose golds and champagne hues. Silver seemed to be the most popular metallic choice for bridal designers.
