Romance was definitely in the air, and we have the formal cheap dresses and gowns trends to prove it. While you were busy wedding planning, we spent the week swooning over the latest creations bridal designers have to offer, and 2020 is shaping up to be a supremely fashionable year to be a bride.
We love spotting the latest wedding dress trends on the runway because we know they usually stick around for a few seasons. Bridalwear trends have a way of becoming classics—just think of off-the-shoulder, deep V-neck, minidresses, blush gowns, and jumpsuits—and we love seeing where dress designers take something that feels unexpected and apply it to the bridal wardrobe.
While we see some of our favorite silhouettes over and over again, there’s always new offerings on the runway and this season was no shortage. Suiting got upgrades with trains, bridal blazers, and even short suits, while skirts got the upgrade treatment in the form of feathered detailing, detached overskirts, and the return of the high-low hemline. For lovers of a serious dose of romance, there were no shortage of allover crochet lace gowns that can go boho or sophisticated romantic.

Many designers told us they’re seeing a decline in brides’ interest in ultra-revealing, barely-there “naked dresses”; they want something a little bit more covered-up across the board. That doesn’t mean you have to look like a nun. Sheer sleeves emerged as a growing trend this season. The look is still undeniably sexy, but you won’t feel overexposed in front of your grandparents.
Last week, in addition to our usual schedule of shooting closets, discussing beauty products, and staying abreast of the news, we ducked out of the office a few times for a look at the latest bridal collections. What we saw ran the spectrum from categorically traditional to boldly modern, with designers employing wedding-requisite lace, tulle, and silk for dramatic ball gowns, tailored two-piece sets, and body-hugging sheaths. Lots of sequins and luxe embroidery—notably at Temperley—were in the mix too.
Attention, brides (or people who just love to look at pretty dresses like I do)—designers have just released their spring 2020 bridal collections. And you don’t want to miss any of the looks. Some designers even shot their bridal collections in the gardens of Italy to the streets. Whether you’re searching for “the dress” for your ceremony next year, or just want to peruse, check out all the dreamy bridal creations ahead.
