Brides are breaking tradition with these gorgeous trends

Chloe Best

Getting married in 2019? If you’re on the search for your dream wedding dress, you’re truly spoiled for choice with the new season collections and trends. While princess dresses and classic lace gowns will always be a hit, 2019 has a lot to offer the bride who wants to make a sartorial statement as she walks down the aisle, with shimmering metallics and even coloured gowns taking centre stage. The "Meghan Effect" means designers have also championed classic minimalism too, with modern designs similar to the Duchess’ bespoke Givenchy gown designed by Clare Waight Keller.

Minimal wedding dresses

Much like the Duchess of Sussex’s Givenchy gown, less is more when it comes to wedding dresses this year. So if a princess skirt, lace and embellishment isn’t your style, you’ll love these modern and minimalistic gowns. They may be simple but they’ll make a big impact.

Gold and metallic wedding dresses

While Pinterest’s trend report suggests gold wedding dresses are going to be big news in 2019, it appears other metallic hues are on the rise too, with brides trading classic ivory for shimmering silver and rose gold tones.
