The Top Bridal Trends For 2020 Weddings

Being at the forefront of wedding dress designing means that we have to keep our fingers on the pulse when it comes to knowing what’s happening and how best we can adapt new ideas to suit our bridal customers.  This season is no different and this Wedding Dress Trend report 2020  draws on the inspiring trends of the bygone classics whilst adding fresh romantic interpretations to the finer details.   For the majority of new brides  who are going shopping for the first time, it will be  easy to overlook the subtle changes that mark the beginning of new trends in bridal. But for the fashion forward bride to be about to begin the journey and search for  her dream dress, such information is vital.

New Bridal Trends & Updates to Look Out For In 2020

  • Tailoring
  • Sheer Naked Fabrics and laces
  • Clever Corsets
  • High Necklines and Details
  • Billowing puff sleeves,
  • Waterfall high-low hemlines,
  • Innovative materials
  • New shades of ivory from Mediterranean plaster to milkier shades of white.

As a rule, we love new trends.  But, we take each on its merits and never push ideas because we create dream wedding dresses to flatter and make beautiful every aspect of the woman who wears it, so fashion and trends can oftentimes be counter productive to that process.   But, wer’e addicted to style and so we love the challenge of  injecting unusual and modern ideas within the ATELIER COLLECTION  so that our brides can experiment and be inspired towards breathtaking designs; whilst also learning how to incorporate new trends with bohemian style, or break the rules if need be whilst keeping control and focus upon achieving a wedding day look that is effortless and all about the bride!

But before we get started, lets take a look at the new trends in fabrics, colours, textures and trims before we delve into the styles of leading couture designers and explain how to make them work for you.



Top Bridal Trends for 2020 Weddings

  • Soft whites that are muted and warming is the focus of the new ivory shades
  • Embellish with details and trims that are small,delicate and intricate for 3D interest and effect.




FEATHERS – Abundant Light

Either go bold in a full feathered gown or use more sparingly by adding to the body of the dress for movement but what your choice – Don’t Skimp!  You cannot go wrong with feathers if you  want to take your femininity to new heights.   What may have seemed a little over the top in past seasons, is now rife on trend  glamour, luxe and ethereal beauty –  at ceremony, rehearsal dinner, or after-party.




Think 70’s Abba inspiration with a hint of New York disco diva scene.  From fringing and mini skirts to flared pants with sparkling sequins, you can still introduce elements to your  bespoke wedding dress signature with and keep it timeless by sticking to clean and uncluttered.  If, on the other hand, you really want the go all out for this vibe, why now save it for your second dress or after party look.



If you are old enough to remember 1980’s fashion, it was all about #LadyBoss statement dressing with suits and power shoulders.  This time round however, the 80’s and 60’s merge into a kind of ‘Mod/Glam’ fusion not intended for the shy and retiring types but for those unafraid of exploring new adventures.  In our previous post we explored the importance of having an open mind about trends and not allowing yourself to feel overwhelmed by outdated rules and attitudes; So as a general guide, do bear in mind that whilst 2020 is all about volume, bigger doesn’t always mean better if you are small framed or with a fuller bust.



Not entirely a new look as the High-Low Hemline has been around for a few seasons.  However next season, do expect to see more playful versions of this style with colour, texture, volume, shape and scale all playing a big part.  This is definitely a seductive way to walk the aisle with a playful flash of the thigh with feet stylishly adorned in your favourite designer wedding shoe.  To complete the look, go for sleek pulled back hair up or cascading Hollywood style waves topped by a NON TRADITIONAL FASHION FORWARD VEILS



The Halter Neck Wedding Dress is the perfect alternative to bridge the gap if you are undecided between going strapless and wanting to cover up for the ceremony.  The style has its advantages if you require a little more bust support than most.  Plus, it is easy to slip in bust cups for additional shaping if your gown is softer and unboned.

There are a variety of fashion forward styles to explore if you don’t want your back to be exposed too, so don’t despair – explore



Trousers, Shorts, Playsuits – you name it – you can do it especially if you are planning a lush Barn wedding, a City Wedding or even getting married abroad.  Thsi kind of style suits the cool-bride in you  so don’t fret if your wedding is none of the above – just make it work!  Think Rehearsal dinners or even after party to channel your daring side  and whatever choice you make, style it up with sleek hair and uber stylish accessories and shoes.



Timeless Classy and cool.  Take inspiration from the house of Dior’s 1950’s look books and fuse with modern fabrics that are sheer, frothy and add an element of modernity and risque for that modern sexy effortlessly cool look without having to worry about what any of your guests, friends, or family will think.


Whilst we never want to limit your choices because every bride (including petite brides) should be able to wear whatever she wants – you will need a little help and guidance with restyling and even re-positioning proportions  – a point which is probably best explained during a wedding dress consultation to help you understand how designing a wedding dress works and how the rules are applied in individual cases.

So there you have it once again!  We hope to have inspired your search and would like to take this opportunity to invite you to get in touch with any questions that you may have.  There is NO CHARGE FOR INTIAL CONSULATION LASTING 40 MINUTES.
