It’s been a week since our return from New York Bridal Fashion Week, a.k.a. #nybfw, and it did not disappoint! Of course we go for the dresses and to make our picks on what to bring back to Margaret Ellen Bridal and 30A, but we have a little fun, too. We always scout out new places to eat, new sights to see, Broadway shows, and of course: New York pizza. I could totally write a whole blog on pizza, but instead, I will share with you the hottest trends coming to the bridal fashion world by some of the most well known bridal designers in the states. Our 2019 Wedding Dress Trends include:
Trend Alert: Sleeves
Since opening our doors in January, we have had a handful of brides that have asked for sleeves. This was surprising since we are in Florida and it is hot or warm most of the year, but we are LOVING that our Florida girls are smitten for sleeves. This market, we saw sleeves with all of our designers. So, it’s safe to say, sleeves are here to stay! Thanks, Meghan Markle for bringing them back.
Trend Alert: Same Dress, Different Look
Again, my brides have been all over this since summer. I have had two girls come in with this vision and have made it happen for their future wedding days, so I guess you can say they are total trendsetters. I had a feeling going into market that we would see a ton of overskirts and I was right. I saw this wedding day look at each of my designers’ showrooms and I love the idea of it. So, if you are lost, let me fill you in. An overskirt is part of the gown you can wear for the actual ceremony and then BAM take it off for the reception to let loose and have a whole other look. Two looks for the price of one, YES!
Trend Alert: Off the Shoulder Sleeves
Off the shoulder sleeves are coming in hot! Again, we saw tons of off the shoulder gowns, with some even being detachable, giving you that option to have a bit of a different look and easily able to move and groove on the dance floor at the reception.
Trend Alert: Mini Dresses
Think rehearsal, reception, beach weddings! Designers are coming up with mini wedding dresses perfect for any occasion. Amsale has brought back their “Little White Dress” collection that would pair well with any wedding event. Other designers, such as Hayley Paige have designed mini-dresses under overskirts so you don’t have to change out of your wedding gown. There goes that trend of overskirts again. I can totally imagine brides getting to wear their wedding dress (mini dress) on their one year anniversary date. How cool would that be?
