Top Trends from Bridal Market 2019

Bridal trends come and go, we’re here to provide you with insight on the newest upcoming trends everyone should be on the lookout for. Our team just got back from this year’s bridal market in New York City. Kelly Thomas, manager at our Atlanta location, made a few trend forecast predictions before we left! Here’s what she anticipated from the New York Bridal Market this year: modern clean lines, modern bohemian (capes), texture/mixing fabrics, two-in-one looks and royal elegance. Funny enough — her predictions were spot on! Here’s a breakdown of why we predicted these trends and which designers have picked up on it:

 

Modern Clean Lines

 

This bride wants to stand out from the rest in a super sleek and elegant showstopper dress. Words like “romantic, flowy, and rustic,” should not be used when describing this look. Straight and clean lines are highlighted in the architecture and production of these gowns, giving them a strong and impactful finish.

 

Paneled skirt seams will give every bride a beautiful and structured look that truly fits her shape. This detail is flattering on all sizes. Designers will use unique flat pattern-making skills when creating these base gowns, and will finish it with their own draping style – giving each gown the “one of a kind” look. Fabrics include silk Mikado, crepe, silk faille, silk satin and silk dupioni.

 

Designers to Watch for this look:

  • Mikaella

  • Paloma Blanca

  • Liancarlo

  • Blue Willow

  • Allison Webb

  • Kate McDonald

  • Watters

     

     

Modern Bohemian — Capes

 

 

We have recently received a ton of requests for dresses that include capes. While we already have a full inventory of simple and classic gowns, several brides want a “2-in-1” look for their bohemian style. This bride is all about an elopement on a mountain top, but still feeling like a bride. A true bohemian spirit will feel more like a goddess in these fabrics and silhouettes; they will be just enough for her effortless vibe.

 

If she doesn't want a clean and modern look, she’ll appreciate a tasteful embroidery or pearl beading — nothing too heavy. Designers will use past draping patterns as a base, and modernize each drape to create something unique and different that sets them apart. Fabrics include chiffon, organza, crepe, silk tulle, and English net.

Texture/Mixing Fabric

 

Texture and mixing fabrics is one of our favorites this season. This trend has the largest range when it comes to “the look.” We have formal, elegant, and timeless looks; but also, dramatic, sexy and romantic with different types of texture. 

 

This trend is suited well for two different types of brides — One wants timeless, elegant and classic; yet feels an all-silk gown is too plain. The other bride wants something totally different and loves all lace/beading that gives off the romantic/organic feeling (for example, vines and 3D appliques). She wants the drama, but also dainty details that make her feel more feminine. 

 

Designers will use best seller flat patterns to create the perfect shape and structure, and will then source unique and even-hand embroider fine fabrics to give each gown an elegant feel without creating something too costume. Fabrics will include silk Mikado, crepe, embroidered lace with added applique, embroidered beading, venice/guipure lace and tulle.

  • Pronovias

  • Blue Willow

 

Two-in-One Looks

 

Recently, we’ve had more and more brides go for something custom; and both bride and mother-of-the-bride have asked if customization is something we offer. Instead of going to the fully custom route, these extra pieces will create a custom look without having to commit to something entirely custom.

For this bride, a WOW factor is a must! This is a bride who wants two dresses wrapped into one to give her the feel of two separate looks. She wants her cake and she wants to eat it too; this trend makes it happen for her. For the classic and traditional bride, a silk off the shoulder band will give her an elegant and timeless look for her ceremony, all she needs to do is remove it to complete her sexy, party look at the reception. For the bride that is looking for a full gown change, a striking removable train will be ideal to give the dramatic flare she’s looking for. Fabrics will include silk Mikado, lace, sequined lace, and tulle.

Each bride wants to feel unique and beautiful in their own way at their wedding. We’re on the lookout every day for new ways to incorporate different brides’ individual styles. We learned a lot this year at the New York Bridal Market. The new trends that will be hitting our stores soon will allow for us to accommodate more brides. Our Real TWM brides are so special to us, we can’t wait to add more to the family!
