10 Huge Wedding Fashion Trends For 2019

By Chiara Spagnoli Gabardi

Fashion trends come and go, and wedding  fashion trends are no different.

According to fashion search platform Lyst, wedding outfits are now surpassing Christmas looks in terms of searches, meaning wedding fashion is a priority for many of us, whether we are brides-to-be or guests.

The UK-based search engine for online fashion analysed the shopping behaviour of more than 5 million shoppers a month, who searched, browsed and bought fashion across 12,000 designers and stores online. It found that dresses with pockets (both for brides and guests), personalised trainers and pre-owned gowns will gain momentum this year as shoppers move towards more sustainable and comfortable alternatives for the big day.

As for accessories, other trend researchers predict wedding guests will be favouring bright hair bands over traditional pastel-coloured hats and feather fascinators, with searches for ‘diamond headbands’ increasing by 78% in the week after the Oscars. Many credit this trend to Rachel Weisz, who wore a vintage jewelled headpiece from Cartier.

Beyond fashion, it seems these other trends are taking over nuptials:

  • Having a maid of honour only, rather than a slew of bridesmaids (anyone else heaving a sigh of relief?)
  • Using smaller bouquets. Large ones tend to hide the bride’s waist, making her look chunky.
  • Speaking of bouquets, since dresses are getting coloured, it’s best to keep your bouquet to one colour, like red or white.
  • Offering a less formal menu. Instead of a three or four course formal dinner, couples are delivering what their guests really want to eat: artisanal pizza, tacos and mini burgers.
  • Asking male guests to dress up in black tie. Megan and Harry apparently inspired this one! Visit ties.com to buy one for your groom

Whether you’re off to a wedding this spring, getting married yourself, or maybe just having a few ‘white wedding’ fantasies, I think you’ll love reading about these 10 huge wedding fashion trends for 2019.

10 Huge Wedding Fashion Trends For 2019

1. Coloured Dresses

It is not something exactly new for a wedding gown to be of a different hue from the traditional white. Back in 1937, Wallis Simpson wore blue at her wedding to King Edward, and in the eighties Emma Thompson chose a polychrome gown while tying the knot with Kenneth Branagh.

Many celebrities of our own time have gone wild with different shades too, from Jessica Biel choosing a pink dress to wed Justin Timberlake to Dita Von Teese’s purple gown while marrying Marilyn Manson. In fact, champagne and violet hues are hugely trending, as well as gold. If you’re looking for a non-white ethical bridal gown, try Reformation – they offer wedding dresses in a load of colours, like these, below.

2. Vintage Dresses

Pre-owned or vintage wedding dresses are more than just a trend, they are a powerful statement during the most populated day in a couple’s life. Such garments attest the dedication to the environment, and according to Lyst second-hand wedding dresses are up 93 per cent. After all, brides are meant to wear “something old,” so why not let it be your dress?

If you think a vintage wedding dress will make you look like a character in a costume drama, think again: many modern trends are just revamped versions of fashions from previous decades. Just look at this ’30’s gown, below – or the ’50’s dress below it. Their colours and cuts are still bang on trend today!

3. Sneakers, Not Heels

Heels can be quite painful, especially if you’re wearing them for hours on end. So no wonder more brides are choosing to wear white sneakers on their wedding day.

As a matter of fact, sneakers have already been sported by a number of high profile wedding guests including the Duchess of Kent, who was praised for her dress-and-sneaker look at the royal wedding between Meghan and Harry. Serena Williams also wore high-tops under her Valentino gown at the evening reception. This trend is getting so hot, brands like Converse, below, are taking orders for customised wedding trainers!

4. Dresses with Pockets

Modern times call for modern outfits, and dresses outfitted with pockets have been growing trend in recent years. Elie Saab has long shown couture creations with pockets, and it seems the style resounds with women – they give you something to do with your hands, and also offer a place to hide your phone and lipstick! In fact, of all the wedding fashion trends for this year, I personally like this one the best.

5. Jumpsuit Dresses

In 2019, brides, and guests, are swapping traditional dresses for more tailored looks, in the form of jumpsuits. This trend is perfect for the bride who isn’t too keen on the traditional gown, but also wants to avoid looking too ‘masculine’ in a full on suit. Naeem Khan makes beautiful dress/jumpsuit hybrids, as you can see below.

6. White Suits

Who says suits are just for dudes? With the likes of Lupita Nyong’o and Priyanka Chopra donning white suits to media events in recent months, women have been demanding them more, especially for big events like weddings. No wonder Stella McCartney is trying to meet consumer demand for white women’s suits with her stunning new bridal range, below.

7. Pearl Earrings

Pearl earrings of all kinds, big or small, statement-making or understated are set to be one of the biggest jewellery trends of the year, with online searches up a whopping 109% since January. Whether you choose a tiny, dainty pair, or a bigger, bolder style, just ensure they’re ethical, like this pair by Melissa Joy Manning, below.

8. Custom-made

Angelina Jolie’s marriage may not have lasted long, but her veil certainly made a splash, what with its embroidery of her children’s designs. She seems to have sparked a trend for custom-made, totally unique bridal wear, which is predicted to be popular with Gen Z shoppers.

Brides born after 1995 will demand more personalisation on their big day, according to Fashion Network, and are rejecting the idea of having a traditional wedding, choosing instead to have personalised details that echo their personal style and philosophy. According to their report, today’s brides seek “originality, uniqueness and digital and creative experiences.”

Expect to see more unusual wedding gear, like this lace jumpsuit by Stella McCartney, below.

9. Headbands, Not Hats

We’re not talking about the headbands you throw on when you’re having a bad hair day: the trend is for something more akin to a tiara, such as this look below, by Simone Rocha. It’s delicate, feminine and just a little bit royal. Wearing a headband also means you can skip the super-elaborate hairdressing sessions and go for a smoother, simpler hairstyle.

10. Vegan Brides

Silk is the most commonly used fabric in most bridal gowns, which is not ok for vegan brides, since several thousand silkworms are boiled alive to make enough fabric for a gown. Instead, other eco friendly fabrics are in demand for bridal gowns, like Tencel or linen, which look just as lovely and ‘breathe’ just as well as silk. Designer Sanyuka Shrestha makes some gorgeous vegan bridal gowns, such as those below.

Aggregate information (non-personally identifiable information)

Eluxe Magazine may, from time to time, automatically collect aggregate information about our visitors to our advertisers, sponsors, promotional partners and affiliates. This aggregate information includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses connecting to our site, how many persons visited a particular page or activity, dates and times of image uploads, device characteristics, operating system, browser type, type of connection, page and image viewing statistics, and incoming and outgoing links.

Like most websites, we use log files to store this information. None of this automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you choose to give us personal data about you as described above, the technical information we collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you. Second, if we are required to disclose our server logs as a result of a subpoena or other legal process, some third party such as your internet provider could match our anonymous technical information with you, using information beyond what is found on our servers.

Eluxe Magazine may use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or other anonymous tracking information to improve our server’s interaction with your computer, and we may partner with third party advertisers who may (themselves or through their partners) place or recognise a unique cookie on your browser. These cookies enable more customised ads, content, or services to be provided to you. To trigger these cookies, we may pass an encrypted or “hashed” (non-human readable) identifier corresponding to your email address to a Web advertising partner, who may place a cookie on your computer. No personally identifiable information is on, or is connected to, these cookies. Although our servers currently don’t respond to “do-not-track” requests (see below), you can block these cookies in other ways, for example by searching “[your browser] + disable cookies.”

Eluxe Magazine will never share, sell, lease, or rent PII to unaffiliated third parties, except in the following circumstances:

a) If we have a good faith belief that we must disclose such information for legal reasons, such as to enforce our Terms of Service, protect or assert the rights, property interests, or personal safety of Eluxe (including its employees, directors, suppliers, distributors, service providers, users of the Website or others), or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We will disclose information only to the extent necessary to comply with the purpose of the request.

b) We may share aggregate, anonymous or summary information regarding our customers and their behaviors with partners, advertisers or other third parties. This data is not personal information and so will not identify you personally. We may share information with companies that provide support services to us, such as a printer, mailing house, fulfillment-company, credit card processor, email service provider or web host, amongst others. These parties may need personal information about you in order to perform their functions. However, these parties may not use any personal information we share with them about you for any other purpose other than in connection with performing supporting functions for us.

You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If and when we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail.

In the event of a change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, Eluxe Magazine reserves the right to transfer your personal information to the new party in control, or the party acquiring assets. We will only do so if the party we transfer the information to agrees that they will abide by our Privacy Policy for as long as they hold the information, and that they will not transfer the information to any other party who will not abide by our Privacy Policy.

We use third-party advertising companies to deliver online advertising. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.
