Five Wedding Dress Trends for 2019 Brides

January 09, 2019

We’ve finally hit 2019 and with the new year comes new aisle style trends! We love nothing more than keeping up-to-date with the latest fashion trends in the wedding industry, discovering what’s hot and what’s not. With that in mind, it’s our duty to let you know what’s going to be taking the world of weddings by storm this year and what you need to look out for. So, if you’re a 2019 bride-to-be, keep reading…

Statement Sleeves

Impossible to ignore and even more difficult not to adore, statement sleeves are one of the biggest bridal trends of the year. In fact, statement sleeves are almost everywhere so if you’re a fashion-forward bride with tonnes of style, this is definitely a trend to keep a close eye on. Whether you love the look of voluminous sleeves or ones that are adorned with details and embellishments, they are designed for the bride who wants to look anything but ordinary. Smitten? Us too!

Stand out from the crowd with a feathered wedding dress. A nod towards a bygone era, gowns with feathered skirts, boleros or detailing are capturing brides’ hearts across the globe. If you are rocking a gown with feathers we recommend that you keep your accessories fairly simple. You want to complement the design, not detract from it or go too OTT. A vintage-inspired up-do will be the perfect match for this style of gown, while a bejewelled brooch will add a subtle sparkle.

Beautiful Bows

Bows are making a comeback and in a big way! They add something extra to a classic, timeless dress with a chic silhouette. Showcase your beautiful bow detailing by donning an elegant up-do, while a pair of chandelier earrings will complete your bridal look and add extra drama. It’s time to turn heads!

The Megan Markle Effect

The wedding of the year, Megan Markle’s aisle style is still inspiring brides-to-be and we can certainly see why. From the dewy, natural make-up to the stunning bouquet, everything about the Royal Wedding left us swooning here at Glitzy Secrets. If you’d like to recreate the Duchess’ bridal look, an up-do teamed with our Classic Romance tiara will look exquisite. A sophisticated white wedding dress with a simple neckline and full-length or three-quarter length sleeves will look effortlessly elegant. A small bridal bouquet with soft white blooms and a handful of foliage is all you need to feel like royalty!

Brides-to-be are getting more and more daring with their dresses, and 2019 is the year of swapping a traditional white wedding dress with something full of colour. From ombré gowns, skirts adorned with sequins or subtly-coloured dresses, this is your chance to wear something that truly reflects you on your wedding. Remember, it’s your day and there are absolutely no rules when it comes to your aisle style.
