Next Year’s Biggest Wedding Dress Trends, According to Bridal Fashion Week

ashion month may be over, but don’t think we’ve stopped paying attention to the runways. We’re kicking it into high gear once again for Bridal Fashion Week and bringing you all the deets on the best wedding dress trends for 2020, according to Bridal Fashion Week Fall 2020. We’re doing this because we care, and, well, I’ll be honest: I’m a sucker for Bridal Fashion Week—not just for the gorgeous pieces of art that strut down the runway in the form of wedding gowns, but also because it gives me a very tangible way to daydream about planning my own bridal look (despite the absence of a ring on my finger).

While I’m more into a classic bridal look, it’s pretty fun to indulge in the trendier ensembles that come down the runway. Specifically, the off-the-shoulder statement sleeve—a newer concept that I’m personally obsessed with (shoutout to Hailey Bieber’s wedding dress, which featured this chic design). There’s something so demure and yet sexy about a cold shoulder.

Deep, plunging necklines are also here to stay, and bridal pants are slowly (but surely) finding their place in almost every collection presented this season. To no one’s surprise, long statement sleeves have made their way from the regular fashion runways to the bridal set. And for those wanting to show off their more feminine side, you’re in luck! Big bows were everywhere this season. (And yes, if you were wondering, my dream wedding gown does include a very large bow front and center.)

So, whether you’re planning a wedding, celebrating an anniversary, or just very, very single and feel like daydreaming, scroll below for some of the top bridal trends of the season.

1. Shoulder-Baring Sleeves

This trend is more than your typical off-the-shoulder look. We’re seeing major sleeve moments on top of the off-the-shoulder trend—from bubble sleeves to peekaboo shoulder splits. Take notes because this style makes for a great peeping over the shoulder while coyly looking down photo opp.
