Wedding Dress Trends 2020

Are you a fashion conscious bride looking for the latest wedding dress trends to follow before you decide on the dress? You’re in the right place! We have the very latest wedding dress trends from the latest 2020 designer collections…



The Formal Bride

This is a very bold and unique look for 2020. The blazer work suit look is very different to trends we’ve seen in previous years, and we don’t understand how it hasn’t been a trend before. It’s smart yet sexy, classy yet enticing, luxurious yet simple. It’s everything you would ever want from a look on your wedding day. This really bucks the trend from the informal styles we’re seeing more commonly in collections these days. See the below examples…

That 70s Bride

Flared sleeves and trousers have slowly creeped their way back into modern fashion, and we’re loving it. So is the bridal industry! Flared sleeves, full lace and crochet patterns can be seen all over 2020’s wedding dresses. Just check out our examples below.

The Mystical Bride

This is a very unexpected trend. Picture a mattress cover or the cover of a bathroom window…that seems to be the peculiar wedding dress trend for 2020. And oddly, we’re loving it! It’s different, bold and almost fairy tale like with shiny silk combined with taffeta or heavier material.

The Feathered Bride

Another new wedding dress trend is an adaptation of lace appliqué – feathers. This is probably one of the more expected trends; it started with simple lace detailing which went onto appliqué detailing placed on top of the dress and now there’s this almost semi-detached appliqué look. Although we have to admit…it reminds us of a plucked turkey…

The Royal Bride

Meghan Markle hit all the headlines after her royal wedding, and her surprisingly simple dress. Due to its simplicity, loads of designer companies added a similar style to their collections and it has created an entire trend of very simple wedding dresses with minimal detail.
