Hey Alexa, play: "Going to the chapel and we're gonna get married!"  

Alright, so you and your honey have set a date, everyone in the bridal party has been notified of their new roles and on top of the million other things on your growing to-do list, you need to find a dress!  Shopping for a wedding gown can be super stressful because you need to find a style that reflects you, looks great, and is on trend.  After all, how you look in your gown will be one of the most talked about parts of your wedding.  

The New York Bridal Fashion week took place on October 3rd through the 8th, and from the bridal looks that were showcased, there is tons of inspiration for the 2020 bride.   From dramatic sleeves and couture gowns, to ruffles and bridal suits, there is no shortage of styles to choose from to fit your personal taste.


1.Sleeves

It's all in the sleeves.  From billowy to 80's-inspired puffy, sleeves that make a statement will be seen more this wedding season.   Atelier incorporated intricate lace and silk into bell sleeves. Julie Vino Bellagio's adds a floral touch on sheer sleeves proving there is beauty in the details. 



2. The bridal suit

Although it may have your mother clutching her pearls, bridal suits are gaining popularity on the bridal fashion scene.   Atelier's elegant two-piece is draped in silk with an asymmetrical neckline and Justin Alexander's  sophisticated crepe pantsuit with 3-D floral appliques is made even more magical with a matching walking veil. 



3. Ruffles

The modern take on the classic ball gown will include ruffles, and lots of it.  Atelier by Jimmy Choo used lots ruffled tiers to create an ethereal gown.  Willowby by Watters added big, voluminous ruffles to a beaded bodice. 



4. The little white dress

Shorter dress lengths are perfect for the contemporary bride who is having a beach wedding or for the bride who does not mind walking down the aisle ready to party.  This fitted, thigh-high number by Justin Alexander is paired with a cropped jacket full of texture.  


5. Florals  

Petals, leaves, and 3-D floral appliques are blooming and popping up everywhere for wedding gown designers in 2020.  The rich details and glamorous silhouettes by The Atelier by Jimmy Choo give these gowns a romantic vibe. 



6.  Pretty in Pink

One trend that is not slowing down is the colored wedding dress, especially in shades of pink.  Iris Noble's blush pink gown has billowy tulle for an extra feminine touch.  A touch of sparkle gives Peter Langner's design the right amount of glamour.
