Wedding dress trends in 2020

News e Tendenze 27 ago 2019

The catwalks of Bridal Fashion Week 2020 in Barcelona offered brides more stylistic choice than ever before. Whether they’re looking for a refined gown, or aiming to make a statement with an outfit that’s anything but traditional, designers have updated many much-loved wedding dress trends with an array of fresh touches. For those who simply can’t decide on one look, there is no harm in choosing two. Following in the footsteps of Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton, and Kim Kardashian, it will be common for brides in 2020 to wear more than one outfit on their wedding day.

Plenty of designs will harken back to iconic eras in fashion history. Expect to see a return to old Hollywood glam, with full-skirted satin ball gowns, as well as 80s-inspired puffy sleeves and slinky 90s slip dresses. Renaissance romance will be another popular theme, courtesy of fashion houses like Oscar de la Renta and Vera Wang, both of whom unveiled dramatic off-the-shoulder dresses with theatrical oversized sleeves.

As for more contemporary choices, jumpsuits will remain a staple, but designers will bring the look into 2020 with the attachment of a showstopping bridal train. Power blazers, with sharp shoulders and slick lapels, will be another great androgynous alternative, often coupled with shorts instead of trousers. In fact, shorter hemlines look like they will be popular across the board. For the best of both worlds, asymmetrical high-low hemlines are also back in style, and will continue to be a common wedding dress fashion choice going into 2020.

The veil is also set to take a backseat in favour of capes—a much more fashion-forward way to guarantee dramatic movement down the aisle. 3D flowers, feathers, beading, or metallic detailing are also increasingly chic embellishments for any bridal wedding accessories. Though lace will remain a staple material, the modern bride may prefer crisp crepes instead. And although the editors of British Vogue predict that the majority of bridal garments will stick to a traditional white colour scheme, there are still new shades being introduced to the palette. These include champagne, dusty blue, powder pink, peach, lavender, and gold.


Cravats, bow ties, and ruche ties have almost completely fallen out of fashion in the last few years. Grooms in 2020 will be most drawn to a standard—yet stylish—necktie, fastened in a Windsor knot. The penchant for matching the bridal party has also dwindled, so the groom no longer needs to coordinate his tie with the bridesmaids’ dresses. Instead, they are far more likely to embrace playful prints, in accordance with the overall theme of the wedding. For instance, floral patterned ties complement outdoor ceremonies, while those who have opted for a suave and sophisticated setting should go for classic polka dots, stripes, and checks.
A double-breasted waistcoat will be an integral part of a sharp, classic three-piece wedding suit—especially in bolder prints like tweed and dogtooth. Slim-fitting lounge suits have proven most popular with grooms of late, and though they won’t be going anywhere in 2020, there’s also set to be a return to quintessential English morning suits, complete with a statement tailcoat.
Groomswear may also move away from traditional fabrics like wool and cotton in favour of velvet for winter and linen for summer. For those looking to make a statement, classic black, blue, or grey suits may be switched for eye-catching burgundies, emerald greens, or even pinks. In fact, grooms need not be restricted by one colour—stylists expect grooms in 2020 to mix and match different hues to find a unique combination they love.
