Last week the Fall 2020 bridal collections were unveiled during Bridal Fashion Week in New York and several trends emerged!
The collections that graced the runways last week will be delivered in store In February – April of 2020, but they are intended to be worn by brides getting married in Fall of 2020 and Spring of 2021.
Following are some of my favorite bridal gown trends:
Feminine details like pearls, bows, eyelet and corset details were in every collection. I adore all things feminine, so this trend is always in style for me!
High Necks and Long Sleeves:
Plunging necklines have been popular for several seasons. As part of the cycle of fashion, we are now seeing necklines come up and gowns becoming more covered up. But, it does mean that you still can’t be sexy! I love these fitted styles with sophisticated high necks and long sleeves. Herrera

Satin is a classic bridal fabrication that fades in and out of popularity with the trends. Sheen in fabrications is back in a big way! Many designers are showing Mikado (my favorite bridal fabric) and we are seeing lots of gowns with a satin finish- whether it comes from duchess satin, satin back crepe or stretch satin.
Larger scale floral appliqués and laces:
Each season we see lace details evolve. This season it is all about larger scale floral appliqués and laces. I adore this feel for Spring and Summer weddings!
Diversity is not a trend..it is real life But, it is refreshing that designers are finally embracing diversity both in their collections and on their runways. Most designers are now offering extended sizes and many have designed styles specifically for fuller figured brides. I was the most proud of Theia who had a model in a wheel chair on their runway.
It truly is a wonderful time to be a bride! There is a style out there for everyone!
