The inspirational bridal fashion weeks in Milan, London, New York, and Barcelona gave us the wedding trends to aspire to for 2019.

Some things haven’t changed. The classic Princess design is timeless, the sensuous mermaid style is still hot, and the casual bohemian-style wedding dresses will probably never go out of fashion.

So if you’re going to tie the knot in 2019 (or are simply a hopeless romantic) then keep reading to discover this year’s latest trends in matrimonial fashion.

Check out our gallery if you want to see some gorgeous wedding attire, and read our handy point-form guide below for some advice on what kinds of fashion you should consider when it comes to accessories, design, and details in 2019.

Bows. The perfect mix of function and style, bows work whether they’re big or small. They can also be used as a clasp, or for a decorative effect.


Capes. Tulle (i.e. the netting used for the veil) can cover your shoulders and give your wedding dress that extra touch of class.

Colour touch. Pastel tones are fantastic for a traditional bride, but less traditional brides might consider using a different tonal dynamic with brighter colours such as yellow, red, green, or cyan. This idea would also work for any remarrying bride who wanted this wedding to be different from her first.


Coordinates: A suit (or top) with a skirt. This current trend creates a more casual vibe for the bride by embracing the modern world.

Exaggerated volumes. Multi-tiered tulle skirts are popular right now, as are flounces (strips of material which are used purely for their decorative effect). The whole point of a wedding is to feel like a Princess all day long – why not look like one as well?

Layering. Skirts made from satin, tulle, or lace combined with jumpsuits, pants, or miniskirts can give you a modern vibe and keep you as warm as you’d like to be.


Lingerie inspired. Slips, pajama suits, and bustier tops can all be used in your wedding dress to tread a fine line between formal daywear and naughty nightwear (ideal for the cheekier brides out there). Why not check out our gallery to see for yourself?


Necklines. The current trends are V-neck plunges (perfect for the daring bride), boat necklines (ideal if you want to show off your shoulders), or turtle-necks (a classic choice for the more modest bride).

Nude tattoos. Here, nude refers to skin-toned material. Nude (or white) tulle decorated with detailed lace or embroidery can be used to create a sheer ‘tattoo’ visual effect.

Sleeves. The trend in sleeves at the moment is long sleeves, fitted sleeves, or gigot style (also known ‘mutton sleeves’ due to the puffy upper-arm).

Waistline. The current trend in waistlines is satin sashes, precious belts, and brooches. They can be worn individually or all together, and serve to enhance the waistline.


Whatever the case, Fairytale Brides can help with your search the perfect wedding dress.
