Bridal Fashion Week is happening in New York City this weekend! We are so excited to see the newest fashion designs and what trends emerge. We’ve gathered nine trends that top bridal designers and experts predict will be taking over the runways at the event this weekend!
- Showing It Off – Gone are the days of the bride being afraid her maids will somehow upstage her. Today’s brides welcome their friends’ beauty and confidence with dramatic v-necks, off-the-shoulder styles and low-cut backs on bridesmaid dresses. – Joanna August of Joanna August
- Tone on tone beading – Expect to see more tone on tone beading as opposed to the more sparkly silver and gold beading. – Danielle Keller of Mon Amie Bridal Salon
- Feminine details – Dresses will be overtly feminine with flirty hem lengths, pleated chiffons, draping and volume. – Rebecca Lau Marsh of White Runway
- Black details – Brides are daring to break the mold and we’re all for it. We’re seeing brides add elements of black to their gown whether in a veil or with an embellished sash. It looks so classy and compliments a black tuxedo or suit beautifully. Or you can go all out and wear an elegant black bridal gown. Talk about showstopper! – Lindsey Bennet of Azazie
- Unique lace patterns – Designers are starting to get creative with the lace they incorporate into their gowns. Expect to see more unique lace patterns this year! – Danielle Keller of Mon Amie Bridal Salon
- High necklines – High necklines are mainstays in bridal gowns and the additional coverage doesn’t have to be matronly. We’ve created necklines with illusion lace and a plunging bodice lining underneath, or paired them with a low back. The new take on high necklines means you can have a subtle dash of sexiness without being overly daring. – Lindsey Bennet of Azazie
- More ball gowns – The ball gown silhouette is making a big comeback! Voluminous skirts of tiered tulle and ruffle details highlight the bride as she walks down the aisle. – Lindsey Bennet of Azazie
- 3D embellishments – Pearls & fully beaded bodices adorn an otherwise simple silhouette adding a beautiful shimmer to those areas the bride wants to highlight. 3D flowers add a bohemian touch whether they cascade down the skirt or adorn the bodice. – Lindsey Bennet of Azazie
- Printed gowns – Floral prints in subtle hues will show on bridal dresses. – Rebecca Lau Marsh of White Runway
