Bride Style Report 1.0

What if we told you that the bridal industry was in the midst of a fashion evolution? Now we know what you’re thinking, “why so dramatic VOS?” But we aren’t being dramatic, there’s a serious shift in this centuries long tradition and we’re so here for it. Spring 2020 was a moment, and solidified that bridal FASHUN is here to stay. We lined up outside of art studios, lofts, and even the Carousel at Chelsea Piers —here’s looking at you Lela Rose— to get a glimpse of bridal fashion’s future. Designers, new and seasoned, are certainly embracing the idea that bridal isn’t one size fits all. Literally, now more than ever the collections are catering to our beautifully full figured brides. And figuratively, designers are stepping outside of tradition and bringing us pieces of RTW—hello hoop earrings!

While the industry is still planted in its white gown roots, the branches of this tree continue to sprout some unconventional leaves. So what are we excited to see more of? Pantsuits and jumpsuits, street style accessories, two-piece outfits, and jeweled fabrics, just to name a few. 2020 brides, if you haven’t already found the gown (or romper) we can confidently say that the inventory for your wedding year is everything! Scroll down for a glimpse at some of the looks.
