Calling all 2019 brides! The world's best and brightest bridal designers have released their 2019 wedding dress collections.
True to romantic bridal style, the collections have all the classic styles to fall in love with including princess dresses, fishtail dresses, strapless, lace, classic styles and more. But for the bride looking for something unique and fashion forward, there were a few standout styles that caught our eyes.
Simple and Classic
After years of big volume, large embroidery and plenty of bling, suddenly the most simple of dresses feel the most modern and chic. Meghan Markle confirmed it too when she opted for a tailored, embellishment free, Givenchy gown. Since then we've seen plenty of designers follow suit with simpleand classic wedding dresses that look both timeless and modern.
Halterneck Wedding Dresses
Another style that's been influenced by the royal wedding is the rise of the halterneck wedding dress. More and more designers are creating halterneck styles that are sleek, sophisticated and feel a lot more polished and grown up compared to the popular off-the-shoulder and strapless wedding dresses.
Blue Wedding Dresses
Princess ball gowns are incredibly popular for 2019 collections, but the princess that seemed to be on many designer's minds (apart from Meghan Markle of course!), was Cinderella. Soft shades of blue cropped up at a number of shows from sweet styles at Vera Wang to ombré blue at Leanne Marshall. See more colourful wedding dresses.
Metallic Wedding Dresses
Brighter than white but not as adventurous as a colour, metallic wedding dresses are a popular and eye-catching option within the 2019 bridal collections. While the sparkly shades ranged from Champagne to rose gold, it was silver that proved to be the metallic of choice for most designers.
Who doesn't love wedding cape! For 2019, we're seeing them grow shorter and sheerer, acting as a romantic screen for exposed shoulders. Teamed with a strapless or off the shoulder wedding dress, and the over-all look is feminine and whimsical; perfect for the boho brides out there.
