However, with different styles falling in and out of fashion faster than you can say ‘I do’, keeping up with wedding dress trends isn’t always easy. As @WhoWhatWeatUK says, “Over the years we’ve seen everything from Bardot necklines to pink hues peak in popularity, only to quietly take a backseat when new silhouettes, textures and details come to the design forefront.”

If you’re on the lookout for a dress that’s going to be right on trend for your 2019 wedding, we can help. We’ve taken an up close look at some of the best styles currently working their way into the world of weddings – so all you have to do is pick your favourite.


Lace has long been associated with wedding dresses. Incredibly intricate and very beautiful, it’s the perfect way to add detail, style and visual interest to a wedding gown. There are lots of ways to incorporate lace into your wedding outfit. Some dresses have lace sections in the chest area while others have lace sleeves or lace trains. A fantastic finishing touch, a bit of lace will help to add even more romance to your wedding gown.

Big skirts

The skirts of wedding dresses have been getting bigger for a while now. The style has been partly influenced by retro gowns like those worn by Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn. One of the great things about this look is that it helps to make your waist look slender. The larger skirt draws the eye away from your waist and completely covers your hips. This makes it the perfect choice for brides who are a little self-conscious of their silhouette.

Clean and modern

In a trend that’s the complete opposite of large skirts and lace detailing, an increasing number of brides are opting for clean, modern wedding dresses. Often featuring minimal embellishment and a relatively simple cut, these eye-catching dresses are a great choice for brides who want to show off their figures and keep the focus on them rather than their outfit.


Bows have gradually been gaining popularity in the world of wedding dress design for the past few years. Large, oversized bows, or bows made from lace or colourful fabric, can add an eye-catching, playful touch to an outfit. Bows are often placed close to the lower back or on the hips, but they can also be used at the base of the neck and in the skirt of the dress.

Selecting a dress that has one or more of these contemporary features will help your wedding outfit to look modern, stylish and right on trend. Get more ideas and inspiration for planning your wedding by visiting our site today.
