by Belle the Magazine

Searching for the best wedding dress trends for Spring 2019? Look no further. We got a first-hand look at what’s coming up for 2019 during New York Bridal Fashion Week. From the runway to your local bridal store, expect to see lots of these elements next year:

The Markle Effect

Sleek, simple and oh so chic, wedding dresses that were inspired by Meghan Markle’s bridal look dominated the runway shows. It’s safe to say that the Duchess of Sussex influenced Spring 2019 trends with her elegant, long-sleeved ceremony gown and high collar slip dress reception look. The royal wedding has officially invaded the bridal runways and brought with it a high dose of effortless sophistication.

Bridal Jumpsuits

If you’re eloping, looking for a chic second look, or just aren’t into dresses, we’ve got you covered. Bridal jumpsuits arrived last season and are here to stay! It’s the perfect after-party look or city-hall wedding alternative, and showed up in nearly every collection and in every style. From flowy and bohemian to sleek and modern, bridal jumpsuits are comfy, figure flattering and totally of the moment.

Capes and Capelets

Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative. It is a fashion-forward way to add dimension to your gown. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a drama-filled cape or a vintage-inspired capelet to cover your shoulders in style for the ceremony, then whisk it away to reveal a different look for your reception. Whether you opt for tulle, lace or simple fabric, 2019 is the year of the bridal cape!

All That Glitter

When it comes to sparkle, the gowns created in this season’s collections featured a healthy dose of shimmer and shine. From micro-sequins to metallic lace, this season sparkle is understated and all-over, instead of strategically placed beading and embellishments.
