The top 20 bridal trends you need to know

for 2020 weddings

The best wedding dress trends of 2020 through Cymbeline Paris wedding dresses


1. Badass Bride

This look is all about a major dose of attitude and edge. Take an irreverence and laissez-faire attitude to dress for the aisle, then amp it up even further with a punk flair if you’re feeling extra.



2. Buff is the New Blush

This shade is for the bride who doesn’t feel like she’s at her best in traditional ivory and alabaster tones. Pair it with gold, silver, blush, black, ivory, or bolder tones for a look that feels daring yet romantic—and nowhere near basic.



3. All Things Frothy

While volume in bridal is nothing new, this season saw an influx of a new type of texture—froth. Weightless, full of movement, and totally dreamy, this ultra-romantic look wafted down runways in droves and came in the form of tulle puffs, ruffles, ripples, and pleats.


4. Coat Dressing

From sculptural silk gowns with a neckline-to-hem closure to lace-appliquéd trenches, these bridal coats are meant to be worn as gowns, or over dresses should you choose to use them as layering pieces.



5. Full Coverage

Opt for mock necklines, long sleeves, cuffs, and tons of texture. This conservative-with-a-twist style proves that regal has many forms and that ballgowns aren’t a pre-requisite for getting the look.



6. Green Envy

Wang showcased a range of soft colors for Spring 2020, highlighting a soft green amongst her other macaron shades of pink, purple, nude, and soft grey.


7. Legs for Days

Legs, legs, and more legs were on display from designers of all walks and aesthetics—be it via short hemlines, thigh-high slits, or new takes on high-low hems.


8. Minimalism to the Max

Megan Markle undoubtedly took this trend to the next level with her completely unadorned gown. That means no lace, no beading, and no excessive draping, volume, or fanfare.



9. New Takes on Lace

From Chantilly to Alençon, Guipure to corded lace, and all the re-embroidered and three-dimensional options in between, lace is perhaps bridal’s biggest mainstay. Lace options unlike those we’ve seen before were popping up on the bridal and ready-to-wear runways, giving brides more lace options for and every style, climate, and vibe.

10. Fresh Tiers

For 2020, consider tulle layers that feel more cream puff than classic, and add volume through pleating rather than weight. These full-skirted and A-line options are for the bride who doesn’t take herself too seriously, and who wants to feel like a modern-day princess, with all the extra frills and fuss.



11. Prairie Vibes

This is yet another update to the boho bride—with a Victorian twist. Puff sleeves, smocking, empire waists, and overall ease characterize this look, which is an equal part chic milkmaid and fashion fairy nymph.



12. Watercolor Wonders

While we’ve addressed soft color in more ways than one for 2020—be it the mainstay that is bridal blush or the introductions of green and buff for the aisle, this is about a softer take on all things colorful, be it gowns in shades of pink, blue, yellow, lavender, and beyond, or dreamy floral prints.



13. Scalloped Necklines

The ’80s have been making a comeback in far more ways than one—and scalloped necklines are just another nod to fashion’s most daring decade.



14. Statement Suiting

Suiting is no stranger to bridal, but now these sleek, handsome, and borrowed-from-the-boys options are so ubiquitous in weddings that they’ve taken on innovative approaches. It’s not all about cigarette pants and slim blazers—for 2020, color, sheer capes, sleeveless jackets, and even jackets that double as mini dresses for a quick-change are all on offer.


15. Clever Corsetry

From corsets exposed on classic ballgowns to innovative options featuring asymmetric pleating, high-low hemlines, and more, we’re loving this new spin on sophisticated sexiness.



16. Feathery Frocks

From fully-feathered ballgowns to chic little minis, luxurious yet lightweight feathers add a glamorous and feminine touch to any look for the ceremony, rehearsal dinner, or after-party. We saw plumes of all variations this season, and when it comes to this embellishment, it seems designers all have one message: don’t skimp.



17. Black Magic

Push past any negative connotations about the color black in bridal and trust us—it’s incredibly chic. Whether it be a touch of black or a daring head-to-toe look, don’t be afraid to incorporate this sultry shade into your wedding day wardrobe.

18. Superhero Status

Mock-necked capes adorned with lace were all over the Spring 2020 collections, especially those that added a subtle layer for more coverage and made for a striking silhouette that emphasized the gown underneath.


19. Gloves Galore

Not only fit for a lady in waiting, this timeless accessory feels regal and period, yet somehow super modern. These of-a-time extras made a comeback this season in a variety of versions, and we loved them all.

20. Naked, Not Naked.

Sheer never looked so chic. This sexy silhouette of sheer yet fully-covered gowns still leaves little to the imagination but manages to feel sophisticated. From floor-length, long-sleeved, all-over ruffles to embroidery and embellishments, these styles take nearly-naked, sexy bride dressing to a whole new level.
