Growing up, the only wedding dress examples I had were white gowns with giant sleeves and trains (think Princess Diana). 2020 bridal dress trends are still mostly white or ivory but there is the occasional deviation from that traditional color palette like with Vera Wang and Maggie Sottero. While the dress lines may be classic in nature, the blues, grays, pinks, and even black fabric I think are here too stay.
We all have a little black dress in our closest for a night out with our friends or a fancy date but this Maggie Sottero lace gown puts a different spin on that as it marries modern color with classic lace in this wedding gown. I loved photographing Lane in it for a recent shoot at the Clyde. While the color is a modern take on a classic dress, I think this color trend is here to stay well into 2020.
Moving into 2020, color will continue to be an option for brides wanting to make a bolder statement with their dresses and be more modern while still maintaining that classic dress line. However if a colored dress is not your thing the use of 3D flower embellishments, feathers, and capes are going to be seen a lot more and help to make your dress feel fresh. There are even some very dramatic bridal suits with trains that were show stopping and unique. The puff sleeve seems to be making a comeback but I don’t think it will stick around for very long. One of my favorite dresses for 2020 so far has been the filmy, romantic dresses dresses from Hayley Paige. Did you have a favorite dress trend for 2020?
