Bridal gowns trends for 2020: an overview

In 2019 bridal gowns were all mainly inspired by royal wedding, thanks important weddings such as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, then Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank. Drama and classicism have been the main features of most of the gowns on sale.
2020 it’s the reinterpretation of these trends, renewing them, taking inspiration by royal ancestors and ancient decades, finding fresh alternatives to ivory and alabaster.
Effortless volume and a new take on bridal’s ever-evolving bohemienne, fresh takes on tailoring, style, and silhouettes, bold romantic sleeves, botanical prints and fun party dresses: that’s what you should be paying attention to as you plan your 2020 wedding in Italy.

2020 wedding dress trends

Let’s get straight to 2020 wedding dress trends and focus on what would be the style that better enhances your figure and fit your wedding ceremony inspiration!

Ruffles, volume, tiers

Froth is weightless, full of movement, totally dreamy, ultra-romantic. Frothy skirts are more photogenic than a satin ballgown and they don’t need a no-stop assistance by bridesmaids. Effortless fabrics like tulle and organza give off a gorgeous ethereal vibe. Romantic brides, this style is for you!
Ruffly skirta add dimension to a mermaid silhouette, a full skirt of cascading ruffles is both otherworfly and fashion forward.
Tiered skirts add pretty texture and movement, but no heft, to a ball gown or A-line silhouette. Tiers may seem a little bit “overseen” in wedding gowns, but what’s old is new again, and this season’s versions feels considerably fresh.

Floral wedding dresses and soft pastel colors

Bold floral prints made an appearance in several 2020 wedding dress collections, adding a burst of color to the classically white gowns. This way to pull off florals adds fanciful visual interest to any wedding dress silhouette. This is about a softer take on all things colorful, be it gowns in shades of pink, blue, yellow, lavender, and beyond, or dreamy floral prints.

Puffy sleeves: back to the eighties

From the eighties but revisited, puffy sleeves come in a ruffly and off-the-shoulder version to bring a considerable amount of romance to your wedding. You aren’t ready to fully commit? Go for detachable ones you can take off for your reception or after-party.
If you love this detail but are worried about overdoing it, look for a slim silhouette with puffy sleeves and keep the rest of your accessories simple.

Pants, for a modern, classy bride

It’s not all about cigarette pants and slim blazers; color, sheer capes, sleeveless jackets, and even jackets that double as mini dresses for a quick-change are all on offer. For the 2020 lace details, 3-D floral embellishments and metallic beading give classic white suits (and jumpsuits!) a modern upgrade.

Short dresses: show your legs!

If you’re eloping or going for a super casual wedding this 2020 wedding dress trend is for you.
This trend hints that showing off your legs shouldn’t be reserved for civil ceremonies or the after party. Pair any of these looks with a veil, and your dress will be ceremony – ready!
