Brides Are All The Rage Of 2019

Meghan Markle paved the way for 2019 to be the year of the bride who’s ready to break all the rules. From the mirrored disco-esque pieces to over-dramatic tulle ballgowns, the classic bridal archetypes are being re-imagined in new ways.

The Marie Antoinette Bride
Period bridal dresses fit for Versailles is one of the reigning 2019 bridal trends. Haper’s Bazaar credits the rise of over-the-top tulle ball gowns, dramatic sleeves, and the overall air of regality to two simple reasons, our interest in the royal weddings and as push back from an increasingly athleisure friendly street style.

The Mirror Ball Bride
Of course the Parisian Disco influence would trickle its way into Couture bridal trends (and I don’t have a problem with that). Reflective mirrored accents, jewels, and sheer metallic chiffon have taken over the runways in exchange for more traditional shades of ivory and champagne. As the boho and the rustic bride are on the decline, the mirror ball bride takes a hard-edge approach to glam.

The Something Blue Bride
Queen of all things bridal, Vera Wang started a trend releasing an embellished champagne wedding dress with a blue tulle train for her Fall 2019 collection. While a full blue dress might not be for even the most daring of brides, the trend proves that you can still make a statement that’s both soft and romantic.

The Bathing Suit Bride
The fashion world paused during Chanel’s Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2019 collection when the fashion house closed the show with a jeweled bridal bathing suit complete with a swim cap veil. A complete revision of the beach bride, the bathing suit bride is a girl after Coco Chanel’s own heart, unafraid of any fashion norms. We’ve since seen similar styles from Zuhair Murad and Ellie Saab that work in a decorative cover up.
