The wedding trends are in, so what will you be wearing for your 2020 wedding?
Get ready for feathery gowns and fairy tale frocks which will create a whimsical feel to proceedings and brace yourself for the high-low hemline which has put in a much awaited reappearance.
If you’re feeling unsure of where to go with all this, don’t panic. Without further ado, the Essex wedding venue at Baddow Park House suggests 7 bridal gown trends to have on your radar.
Your Wedding Dress Trends For 2020
Expect to see a rise in the princess dress. We’re talking dramatic, feminine and ‘oh-so-pretty’ gowns with big skirts, trains and veils. To accompany these gorgeous gowns expect cathedral length veils (the ones that fall to the floor) and high-necklines. Princess-style dresses are a classic for day and evening weddings. Whatever the time of year, their timeless magic has seduced brides for decades. Rosa Clara’s Margarita Gown will make you as radiant as a true princess with long sleeves, a subtle lace bodice and full royal tulle skirt.
The Highs and Lows!
The high-low hemline is back and better than ever and was one of the hottest trends at Bridal Fashion week this year. Sophisticated and chic, practical and beautiful, ideal for modern brides, this is the perfect cut if you want to show off your heels for your wedding. Today there are countless different versions available. Whilst some have a sharp contrast in length between the front and back, others can be more subtle. The high-low design may not feature a traditional silhouette but if you opt for a sweetheart neckline, the overall look can be just as feminine in appearance and fit for a fairy-tale wedding.
Something new and something you!
Brides will be adding their own personal touches and edgy accessories to the finished look. Think leather jackets, bejewelled headbands, tattoos, or pastel-dyed hair.
Prepare Not to Bare!
Strapless gowns are still on the way out and designers have reported seeing a decline in brides’ interest in the more revealing wedding dresses. Brides are thought to be generally looking for something a little bit more covered-up without feeling dowdy and old-fashioned. Alice Temperley has created a demure look with ‘The Annabel’ dress that we absolutely love. A real statement piece that is undeniably sexy yet a little less exposed.
Float down the aisle in Feathers!
This won’t have been the first time that feathers have made an appearance. Putting a distinct twist on the traditional bridal gown, there’s something timeless and old-fashioned about plumes. These can be used to feather adorn a wedding dress to full-dramatic effect. If you fancy feathers but are feeling flustered about using them, consider feather trimmed cuffs, hem or neckline with sequins and rhinestone. If you’re planning a winter wedding; a feather cape, shawl or jacket creates an additional glamorous layer which will look beautiful whilst keeping you nice and snug.
Dont rock a frock?
If you don’t really do dresses in your everyday life, why wear one to your wedding? After all, you do not want to feel like an imposter on what should be the happiest day of your life. For 2020, there will be more options than ever for the alternative bride looking for something a little more unique. Sleek, well-tailored suits, lace-trimmed pantsuits and even a few blouses/trousers with built-in trains are tipped to make an appearance.
Something for the after party?
The wedding celebrations are just getting started after you say “I do”. You might find that you need yet another dress to keep the party going. We are seeing more brides trading in their ceremony gown for a second sleeker wedding dress for the evening (The Duchess of Sussex, Gwyneth Paltrow, Princes Eugenie) or Choose a gown that transforms for a different look. If you plan to dance the night away consider whether your full length fairy tale gown can cope with this!
The team at Baddow Park House Exclusive Wedding Venue in Essex think that every bride should wear the dress she has always wanted, after all, what is an exclusive wedding venue without a bride floating down the aisle in her dream dress! Whether that means keeping things simple, dressing up in a traditional gown or even going for a wedding jumpsuit, go for it! This is your wedding day and your chance to feel fantastic so make the most of it! Whatever the trends are for 2020 and regardless of what everyone else is wearing, remember to stay true to your style and your day.
