The Spring 2020 Wedding Dress looks are fresh off the runway and trend patterns are shaping up! Some of this season’s wedding dresses were presented in the form of a lookbook where the designer photographs the collection and then presents the collection via the lookbook in lieu of a formal runway show. The Spring 2020 trends are similar to last spring, but this season’s trends are more pronounced with further detail, at least in this wedding blogger’s opinion.
You may be wondering why a collection from Spring 2020 is showing now. Designers prepare for each season well in advance so that brides can choose their dresses and have them fitted and ready in time for the wedding the next spring or summer.
Below are several trends that were popular within the Spring 2020 collections.
1. Cape / Designer: Jenny Packham
A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative to a veil. It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception.
2. Feathers / Designer: Zuhair Murad
Exuding an air of whimsy and fun, feathers played a big role in the Spring 2020 collections. They were quite a big trend in the 2019 collections and are even bigger in 2020!
3. Veil / Designer: Reem Acra
More and more brides are choosing the traditional bridal look and opting for the veil to complete it. Reem Acra dedicated the first part of her collection with the whole ensemble – wedding dresses with matching veils. It is a stunning and familiar look!
4. Cascading Tiers / Designer: Oscar de la Renta
If you’re searching for a dress with some flair but don’t want the hassle of a full skirt or long train, a skirt with cascading tiers may be for you. A layered skirt adds movement—but not weight—to a streamlined silhouette. Tiered lace has a whimsical feel, while fringe embroidery is just made for twirling.
5. Floral Details / Designer: Galia Lahav
Dynamic three-dimension blooms put a textural twist on a traditional bridal detail. Whether they’re oversize and all over, delicate and cascading, or embellished with feathers and crystals, this fashionista’s way to pull off florals adds dimension to any wedding dress silhouette.
6. Skinny Straps / Designer: Cushnie
This wedding dress with skinny straps is both sexy like a strapless number and a bit more supportive as well. These two factors make it a winner in the bridal fashion world.
7. Geometric Details / Designer: Zuhair Murad
Although one can never tire of intricate Chantilly lace or opaque satin, geometric patterns and cuts are definitely on the rise. And for good reason. The style covers everything from crystal lattice beadwork to mod necklines. This trend is the result of the latest in cutting-edge design technology.
8. Plunging Neckline / Designer: Plunging Neckline
The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you’re busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of your wedding!
9. Bows / Designer: Oscar de la Renta
These pretty loops have brought dainty vibes to wedding dresses season after season. After all, they’re capable of doing more than simply defining a bride’s waist. This season, watch out for larger-than-life-bows that act as trains and sweet loops that make the prettiest straps.
10. Allover Sparkle / Designer: Monique Lhuillier
Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turn your wedding into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring yet sophisticated. However, if you’re rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy gown do all the talking.
