The Biggest Wedding Dress Trends of 2019, According to a Bridal Expert

If you’re a bride-to-be searching for a striking new gown or you simply just love perusing dreamy wedding dresses in your spare time, (guilty as charged… and I’ve been married for three years!), then you’ve come to the right place because today we’re turning our attention to the fresh and modern wedding dress trends to come out of fall 2019 Bridal Fashion Week. While a few of the wedding dress trends that have become classics still remain strong, a new crop of fun, fantastical, and dynamic styles emerged onto the scene in all their sparkling glory.

We tapped Jennifer Cress, digital executive editor at Martha Stewart Weddings, to get more insight into what trends are emerging this year. "Expect to see statement (and removable) sleeves, interesting necklines. Off-the-shoulder and Victorian-inspired high collars are becoming more popular in lieu of a classic sweetheart or strapless. Metallic lace and intricate embroidery are also prevalent and make a classic silhouette feel special. And lastly, the Meghan effect: simple, modern dresses that nod to traditionalism with boatnecks and long sleeves."

Whether your aesthetic is classic, modern, or bohemian, there’s a little something for every sartorial taste. Scroll below for the biggest wedding dress trends of 2019 and shop the new styles available right now.
