The bridal industry is gearing up for a great year. The most important trend in 2019 is giving the stylish bride more choices. There are more wedding gowns being ordered in black than in any recent year. These understated and chic gowns are the definition of elegance and grace.
As the black wedding dress trend evolves, bridesmaids dresses of deep purple, silver, and emerald are being ordered. The colors frame the bride in her dark dress, giving a shock of color,
It is an exciting year. For every look, there are other options. For example, instead of dressing your bridesmaids in a floor-length gown, consider the ultra-trendy jumpsuit. You can go with modern styles and lovely fabric. Or, you can go retro with prints. The remake of the 1970s jumpsuit becomes elegant when designed Combine with high-heels.
Jumpsuits should be tailored to fit each bridesmaid. Loose jumpsuits like the one in the photo above are great for the rehearsal dinner, but not for the wedding. You want long and sleek lines. Hair should be pulled up for the wedding. Long sleeves are a must for this look.
Emerald green, sage, violet, and burgundy are trending colors for fall and winter of 2019. The above photo shows the traditional wedding party. The bride is dressed in Ivory and her bridesmaids are dressed in black. But, in 2019, there will be a reversal. Brides are wanting more elegance and charm and they want something different. You will see more brides in black and bridesmaids in ivory, deep colors like royal purple, deep shades of green, or violet. For expert advice, check with the industry leader, Azazie.
The short dress for bridesmaids are hot this year, but there is a secondary trend that can easily be swapped. Instead of a dress, go with a pencil skirt. Bridesmaids can buy matching tops, or the same tops but in different colors. Soft and shimmering halter tops are perfect for the pencil skirt.
Competing with the royal wedding
Whenever there is a royal wedding, the bridal shops are flooded with requests for dresses that are similar. There are certain rules the royal family must impose. This means a royal wedding must stay within those guidelines. So how do you take your wedding to the next level?
You may not have access to a castle, but there are lovely venues with the cathedral look. In most cities, there are chapels which are sometimes rented to couples on particular days.
A Royal bride in white is beautiful, no doubt. But a formal wedding, with the bride in a classic style wedding gown in sultry black, is chic and breathtakingly beautiful. A black gown hides physical flaws, meaning you will be gorgeous and comfortable without being bound tightly by undergarments.
If we could select one word to describe the weddings of 2019, it would be “choices.” The bride may be in a traditional white gown or the trending and sultry black wedding dress. Bridesmaids may wear a skirt and top or beautiful above the knee dress. The wedding venue could be a beautiful chapel with stained glass windows and soft candlelight, or the couple may choose a wedding venue that is transformed into a rainforest with plants and greenery.
Today’s bride has a hard act to follow with the royal wedding still showing up on a designer runway. But today’s bride will rise to the occasion because this year is an anything-goes kind of year.
