The turn of the new decade has brought some amazing super-chic trends in for weddings. The bride-to-be can look out for romantic ruffles, tiered skirts to pant suits. So, if you are planning, this is your holy grail.

Here is our take on what’s hot!

1. Romantic Ruffles

The wedding day is your day to be romantic and dreamy. So, why not make it extra glamorous with ruffles. It is ultra-feminine and adds a lot of dimension to a silhouette. You can have the frilly details along the neckline or go for a whimsical skirt for a fashion forward statement.

Advice: Go easy on the accessories and let the ruffles flatter your personality on the wedding day.

2. Cute Short Dresses

If you are having a small wedding or looking for a way to show off your toned legs, then short dresses are your best friends. These dresses come in all shapes and fabrics. Wear it with fur and silk or just a sheer lace dress for extra oomph and cuteness!

Advice: Pair it up with killer heels to add some style points to your outfit.

3. Let it Sparkle

Bring the bling back this season! Glitter and sparkly dresses are not something new to the bridal scene, but definitely a great pick for brides this year. There are a number of picks from tonal beading, metallic embellishments to traditional yet over-the-top sequins work. The trend is daring, but utterly sophisticated.

Advice: If you are going for a sparkly look then let the dress roar while keeping the accessories to minimum.

4. Princess Tiered Skirts

Remember what’s old is new again in 2020. If you are looking for flair yet a minimal outfit, then you don’t want to miss a gown with a tiered skirt. It has just the right movement and layers with gorgeous textures. The dress is perfect for a modern day bride who wants to feel like a princess walking down the aisle on her wedding day with not fuss.

Advice: Go for a natural makeup look and add some statement pieces for major royalty vibes.

5. Statement Suits

Pants and suits are no surprise to a bride these days. It’s sleek and innovative in terms of fashion. To make it more interesting for you, this style is not about slim blazers and cigarette pants only. This year, it’s chic and stylish with sheer capes, jackets as a mini dress and even jumpsuits.

Advice: To add some feminine touches, you can go for lace detailing and metallic embellishments.

6. It's All About The Sleeves

A classic, long sleeve dress will never go out of style! Its gorgeous and perfect for those getting married in the cooler months. However, it's no surprise that some brides may have doubts and question whether it will be too warm or may be too restrictive. But this can come as an easy fix, if your heart is set on a long sleeve for the big day. You can opt for a lighter coverage gown like lace sleeves, this will provide coverage but still delicately cover your arms in romantic motifs. To allow more freedom to dance at the reception, consider opting for a second dress that is less restrictive.

Advice: In most cases, the sleeves will need to be altered to fit you properly. So be sure to work with an experienced seamstress who will tailor your sleeves to perfection.

We hope this has provided you with some valuable inspiration for selecting the perfect wedding dress for you. Although there are a lot of styles trending this year, don't be afraid to take the time and choose the ideal dress that speaks to you personally and fits your comfort zone. It’s your big day - so let yourself shine!
