Dear Brides-to-be, You’ve been dreaming of your wedding day since you were younger, growing up with a vision of your wedding attire being blurred and overtaken by all other everyday life happenings? If you have already set your wedding date for 2020 and still unable to find the perfect dress or suit, then we’ve got you covered! All the need –to-know Bridal trends we have shared in this blog, highlighting the top trends from Bridal Spring 2020. This epic year our designers are taking their creativity to another level for something a little different than just your regular bridal gown. In the spotlight, at the Bridal Spring 2020 fashion show, we saw a ton of capes, high & low necklines, feathers, floating petals, & oversized bows. For brides not willing to go with the traditional wear, the runway offers sexy suits with trains & blazer dresses.

Lace Says Romance

The expectation of classic lace for 2020 is a must as lace says romance! From beautiful lace bodices to lace sleeves to capes, this trend is popular because there are so many possibilities with this trendy fabric, including colorways and detailing. This season Vera Wang & Zuhair Murad added a modern touch to their design collection incorporating lace with tulle in their designs.

Oversized Bows & Flowers

The newly oversized popular trend is far from being washed up!

Whether it’s an oversized bow or flower, this trend is sure to add the more girly playful touch keeping the ensemble elegant and simple. Designers like Oscar De La Renta, Carolina Herrera set the bar with their beautiful ensemble!

Bows ranging from subtle and simple to statement and striking.


If you’re looking for something a little more glamorous and festive, feathers are the perfect option. Be bold with an entirely feathered gown or just looking to add a little spice, wear a feathered overcoat. Feathers can upgrade any look to a more luxurious vibe, grabbing attention to your entire ensemble. This season designers like Oscar de La Renta and many more are showcasing feathers in various, modern ways. Placing a few feathers on the hemlines or wrists can also spice up your outfit with ease.

Upgraded suits

Are you ready for the future? This season dresses will have some competition as a new style of formal wear with a train has caught eyes of the chic mainstream. Instead of your average sleek trousers and sexy blouse, brides -to- be have are having more varieties. Designers have modified the male borrowed attire and are giving a more feminine twist on the sets. Designer Carolina Herrera Tailored trouser suits:

3D Floral Petals

Spring has sprung and bringing the flowers, 3D flower appliqués to be exact. This season the 3D floral trend has been on a rise with a textured twist. This detailing adds character to the traditional wedding gowns without a doubt. These designs look very feminine and whimsical. Designers like Marchesa:

Vintage Glamour

Another repeating trend …….Vintage glamour is back, with a modern take! Temporarily London, showcased their version of Hollywood with their curve-skimming silhouette and major bling. Other designers like Viktor & Rolf, & Danielle Frankel also jumped on the old Hollywood wave including Fringe, beading, georgette, and pleating in their designs. This trend is perfect for a glam and glitz, or Gatsby.

High - low Hemlines

Did you find a sexy pair of shoes or heels that you been dying to show off? Well show them off on your wedding day, when wearing a high-low hemline dress. This dress Ball gown, Shorter front.

Capes with an Attitude

The veil has always been a must-have accessory for hundreds of years, and it doesn’t seem to be going out of style anytime soon. This season designers are giving this layering piece a refreshing vibe, of course still keeping it traditional with sheer or lace. Instead of covering the brides face designers Carolina Herrera and Marchesa are sending brides down the aisle with capes, either attached or separated. These capes not only look fabulous but they accentuate your silhouette by showcasing your curves.

Keeping it simple

Simple is a statement! Although these gowns have minimal detailing they are still as attention-grabbing as a dress with the most detail. Brides that are looking for an elegant and sexy gown, should consider the designers Cushnie and Jenny Peckham when browsing the dress racks.

Puffed & Statement sleeves

We are traveling back to the 80’s and snatching the puffy sleeve trend this season. This daring sleeve style is not the easiest to pull off, but designer Lela Rose did a fabulous job executing this look in a very reviving way.

It is safe to say that spring 2020 has given us a showcase of gowns, dresses and suits. They come in all fabrics, textures, and shapes. Every bride will be able to choose their most desirable outfit for their special day. For the easy-going types to the most streamline brides, this season is sure a hit! Don’t be shy in the selection, you may surprise yourself.

Which design did you admire the most?

My most favorable and personally loved designer of all time would have to be Oscar De La Renta, as their designs included feathers and the oversized bows. Just got to Love it!
