Fashion trends for weddings in 2019
2019 is shaping up to be an exciting year in the world of wedding fashion. We’re expecting to see a mix of traditional and trend-led pieces for a truly beautiful bridal combination. Here are the top wedding fashion trends for weddings in 2019, according to guest writer Ashley Lipman…
This is the year for silk and satin. Very soft and feminine gowns that drape over the body are already a hit with brides, but in 2019 we’re expecting to see more bridesmaids in silk dresses that feature camisoles with delicate straps.
On the other end of the spectrum, look for lots of pleats. Pleated skirts will be showing up everywhere! Working into the separates trend, a pleated skirt and camisole makes for a laidback bridesmaid or wedding guest look. These styles come in many patterns, but for a wedding, you may want to stick with a solid and deep colour.

Metallic colors have been inching their way to the top for the past two years. This year, try gold or rose gold bridesmaid dresses. If the wedding is late in the year, rust is a trending color. Gold bridesmaid dresses look stunning with a bride wearing ivory. Of course, the bride could be the one in gold and dress the bridesmaids in chocolate brown or creamy satin.
Bows are not only feminine and pretty, but they can be used to accent the waist by wearing them on the front or back of the dress. This year bows are stepping forward. Bows will be seen on the top of each shoulder, or worn at the waist in the back with very long ribbons that trail to the hem. They can be at the top of the dress in the back, again with flowing ribbons, or evening accenting shoes.
Sleeves are big this year. You can choose the traditional long lace sleeves or, for a more trendy look, try bell-sleeves. If you want slightly less sleeve, try the cap sleeves. This is a simple addition that allows you to have a more modern cut while keeping with an understated and chic design.
Rocking the fashion boat
There is another trend that is standing proud. This is for the bride who doesn’t conform to tradition. Think pantsuits or jumpsuits in beadwork or sequins from top to bottom. While some brides will wear white, we’re seeing a trend toward subtle pattern like a slight stripe on the fabric, accented with beads or tiny pearls.
Last year, thanks to Prince Harry and Princess Eugenie’s weddings, royal wedding fever took the wedding industry by storm. If you think it is over, think again! You will be seeing princess brides at least through 2019. Tiaras will be worn alone or with a light veil. Princess cut gowns with full skirts, plunging necklines, and tight lace sleeves are in demand. Some brides are wearing long tiers to add volume to the full skirts, while others are wearing a mermaid cut with a fuller than usual flare at the bottom.
As you can see, the trends for 2019 are exciting across the board. There is literally something for everyone. This year is the year that the couple can design their wedding any way they like and be on the cutting edge of style.
