New York Bridal Fashion Week: Wedding Dress Trends For 2019-2020

Published April 19, 2019

Bridal Fashion Week just wrapped up in New York, taking place April 11-14 2019 and coming in strong to inspire brides who are planning an upcoming wedding.

Providing fresh bridal looks for the 2020 spring and summer seasons, both established and emerging designers were on their “A” game. This season’s bridalwear is truly dazzling.

At Taglyan, we pride ourselves on understanding the fashion industry. As the premier venue for many of Los Angeles’ major fashion events, we have been fortunate enough to get to know many designers, and we highly respect the craft of bridal design.

As for Bridal Fashion Week last week—as well as designs for Spring/Autumn 2019 that were revealed earlier this year and late last year, there we have definitely noticed some trends. Take a look at some of the statement-makers for bridal fashion 2019-2020. These are our favorite wedding dress trends.

High Necks Reign

One of the most elegant standouts this bridal season has been high necklines. They’ve been making appearances all over the runways and at weddings everywhere—and they’re a welcome change from deep V-necks, which tend to only work well with certain body types. Designer Madeline Gardner has said that a high neckline is “a bride’s most sophisticated option.”

Another benefit to these high-necked wedding dresses is that less jewelry is required when a bride wears this style.

There’s also a wide variety of high-neck styles for brides to choose from, including graceful boat necks, sexy halters, jewel or “crew” necks, turtlenecks and mock turtlenecks, standing collars, Peter Pan collars, and keyhole necklines. Each of these types of collars go beautifully with many different gowns.

Designers who have presented stunning high-neck bridal gowns for 2019-2020 include Amsale, Dan & Corina Lecca, Allison Webb, Cristina Ottaviano, Romona Keveza, Naeem Khan, Temperley London, Sareh Nouri, Elizabeth Fillmore, Lela Rose, and many more.

Blushing Brides

Not all brides want to wear white—in fact, many don’t, but they still want to wear a color that radiates romance and femininity. A beautiful shade for this is a peachy blush, which was certainly in the spotlight this past week, and makes for one of the sweetest wedding dress trends. This subtle color looks gorgeous on almost any fabric, with any hair tone, and with either daytime or evening makeup.

Whether incorporating blush tones into the entire gown or just in accents, such as the veil or a cape, it helps create a truly lovely bridal look.

Some of the most memorable blush tones have been seen in designers Ines Di Santo, Reem Acra, and Vera Wang.

Puffed and Perfect

There have been so many off-the-shoulder puff sleeves this season that we can’t even keep count. Nostalgic of the 1980s and early 1990s yet still modern, this style is gaining major popularity. As we said, many designers have embraced the romantic, oversized, off-the-shoulder puff sleeves—but the standout designers include Viktor & Rolf, Anne Barge, and Lela Rose.

Mod-Tastic

Since late 2018, we have seen a rise of mod wedding dresses—inspired from the style sensation of the 1960s—all over the place. This wedding dress trend is both highly chic and sweet, featuring elements from the past that are still striking.

Designers who have pulled from the mod style include Viktor & Rolf, Monique Lhuillier, Danielle Frankel, Alexandra Grecco, and Rita Vinieris.

Hello, High-Low

If you have fabulous legs—or you just really want to show off your bridal shoes—consider one of the biggest wedding dress trends of 2019-2020: the high-low dress.

Danielle Frankel, Oscar De La Renta, and Monique Lhuillier all featured high-low dress designs, and each is stunning and unique in its own way. This particular trend is expected to be seen even more for Autumn 2020.

Markle Still Rules

“Meghan Markle Mania” isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, as evidenced by the sleek, conservative silhouettes that have been on the runways ever since her Givenchy wedding dress was first revealed. Last week in New York was no exception. The simple chic of Meghan’s crisp design is still being transformed and re-created by many fashion houses and designers such as Suzanne Neville and Nouvelle Amsale, and is a wedding dress trend that is expected to remain for a while.

High Slits For A Little Skin

Although Meghan Markle’s influential wedding gown has caused many brides to choose the conservative route, some brides just have to show a little skin—and those brides will love the “high slit” wedding dress trend that made a splash last week. And these aren’t your granny’s skirt slits, either. These are high slits that really make a statement. Designers Stockton Johnson, Reem Acra, Theia, and Berta models all rocked some serious thigh on the runways.

Feather Frenzy

Depending on how they are utilized, feathers can be either very festive or very dreamy. When used in “party mode”, they can be ideal for a bride’s reception dress. Or, when used more delicately, they can also make stylish additions to the main ceremony dress.

Feathers ebb and flow over the seasons, and it looks like they’re back for 2019-2020. Designers Oscar De La Renta, Naeem Khan, Zuhair Murad, and Jenny Packham have all used feather touches for their newest designs.

Sexy Short Bridal Suits

As it’s becoming the norm for brides to have multiple outfits for their weddings and various pre-wedding events, there’s no longer one single look they have to stick to. This is where the mini-dresses, bridal jumpsuits, and two-piece outfits are making a lot of headway.

This season, one of the biggest runway wedding dress trends is short bridal suits. These super-chic, smashing-looking designs are perfect for a bridal event or even the reception. Designers Reem Acra and Ines Di Santo jumped on board for this fun style.

Bustles are Back

There’s nothing more fairytale than a gown with a bustle in back—so if you’re looking for your ultimate princess dress, you’re in luck, because they’re very trendy this season. The most standout bustles we saw came from Viktor & Rolf and Carolina Herrera.

Capes ’n Drapes

It seems that with the variety of Meghan Markle-inspired designs and the comeback of the bustle, everyone wants to feel like a royal. Fashion that’s fit for the highest of society seems to be on the mind of brides everywhere—and there’s one more big trend for 2019-2020 that just radiates royalty: capes and draped fabrics.

Designers including Oscar De La Renta, Jenny Packham, Berta, Carolina Herrera, and Viktor & Rolf all showed off stunning designs which featured capes or trailing fabrics that simply ooze royalty. The result? Anyone can feel regal in the right outfit.
