Whether you just got engaged or are already deep in the throes of wedding planning, you’re no doubt smack-dab in the middle of one of the most exciting times of your life. And if you’re already dress shopping, you’ll of course want to be up on the latest wedding dress trends. But what about the trends that haven’t happened yet? That’s right, we’re looking into our crystal balls ( deep internet searching….) and giving 2019 brides a sneak peek at the styles that haven’t even seen the runway yet.
1) Not your average white
Gone are the days where white or ivory were the only two options a bride had to choose from. “With the growing desire to be unique and expressive, brides are embracing colored gowns. For more conservative brides, we love to suggest tones of champagne or blush—and for more fashion-forward brides looking to make a splash, tones of blue, lavender, silver and gold promise to ensure you stand out.
2) Raw, natural elements
When it comes to bridal accessories, traditional materials such as rhinestones and pearls will be accented with more natural components such as. Crystals, elliptic keshi pearls, and raw opals are just some of the materials that will help create avant-garde headpieces and jewelry for brides. Think: malleable, hand-wired vines that can be worn as headbands or halos, woven in a braid, wrapped around a bun, or even worn as a necklace or bracelet. The possibilities are endless!
3) More structure
Brides have loved looser bohemian styles, with designers such as Lillian West, and Tiadora, but as the 2018 bustier trend indicates, we’re going to see structured designs take over in 2019. Brides want to feel confident going down the aisle, and gowns with boning can help create a dramatic hourglass silhouette that looks beautiful in real life as well as all the movies they are portrayed in. Designers will use structure to give gowns a sexy edge, regardless of how little skin is actually showing like Stella York and the Dreams Collection by Eddy K.
4) The royal effect
All eyes were on the royal wedding—especially Meghan’s gown. The minute that Meghan walked down the aisle, designers started knocking off her dress, much like Kate’s a few years ago. Designers like Alexander McQueen, Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier, and Carolina Herrera will be taking notes for their 2019 collection. Be prepared to see a lot of Clean- high neckline, silk, A Line silhouettes in 2019.
