The ultimate guide to wedding dress styles in 2019
Stunning alternatives to the classic wedding dress
Are you all about pushing boundaries and questioning the status quo? Or maybe you just really like pantsuits? Either way, bold alternatives to the traditional wedding gown are going to be on trend this year. Expect to see cropped tops, bridal suits, jumpsuits and cocktail dresses going down the aisle because nobody wants a cookie-cutter wedding anymore.
Revel in the nostalgia with a bridal kaftan
The boho wedding trend is still going strong and we adore it! It seems to be that the more years that pass by the more nostalgic we get about 70s fashion. So, for every free-spirited bride-to-be out there who wants to exude effortless allure, the kaftan is a must. If intricate lace and embellished patterns are your weakness then this wedding style will suit you down to the ground, and the best news of all is that the flowing nature of the kaftan means that it looks great on most body shapes.
A cape puts all eyes on you
How do you feel about your wedding dress having detachable parts? Capes are going to be a statement trend in 2019 for the bride who wants to add an extra touch of luxury to her gown. Bridal capes somehow have the magnificent ability to achieve the perfect balance between shameless theatrics and dignified nobility. Whether it is a cropped Victorian cape or a full-flowing feast for the eyes, it is possible to incorporate the cape into almost any wedding dress. It all just depends on whether you can handle the drama?
Sleeves for a touch of elegance
Sleeves are a godsend for women who are anxious about showing off their underarms. At EstheClinic, we have a very effective body contouring treatment that will help you shift stubborn fat in time for your wedding day, but you can also use the powers of illusion by choosing a wedding dress with sleeves. Long, detailed lace sleeves are a particular favourite for this year, but so are bishop sleeves. Never heard of them? It’s a long billowing sleeve style that is cuffed at the wrist – definitely one for any old school romantics!
Could you pull off a colourful wedding dress?
The traditional wedding dress has been due a revamp for a long time now, and we think 2019 is finally going to take on the challenge with full force. Now is the time to embrace wedding dress alternatives, but will you dabble with colour? It’s a bold choice, but this is the year of the brave. If you’re not sure about saturating your wedding gown with strong colours like red or black, you could always go for modest pinks or even keep the classic wedding dress and simply add colourful embroidery.
It’s so fluffy!
Feathers! Yes, furry accents are all the rage and we are loving the dreamy vibes. Just imagine floating up the aisle like a cloud in your delicate feather embellished dress. This style is a combination of the boho trend, which is all about nature inspired designs, and 1920s vintage. Have you noticed the 1920s are making a serious comeback in interior design? Well, now it has made its way to bridal fashion so get your fascinator on and start swinging!
Meghan Markle inspired high neck lines
This is a hangover from 2018 when Meghan Markle showed off her second wedding dress (why have one when you can have two, right?) which was designed with a sophisticated halter neck. This is a more modest alternative for those of you who like to veer away from thee V-neck or sweetheart neckline. However, it doesn’t have to be an all or nothing decision. You can always opt for sheer fabric or lace necklines to reveal just the amount you want and keep them guessing.
