For the unconventional bride: 6 Bridal 2019 trends to inspire your wedding look
A different romance
SHORT AND SWEET
Shortened hemlines make for more leg room — that much easier if you want to show off your dance moves with your better half on your big day. Go for a mod frock like Viktor & Rolf with 3D floral embroidery, or Ines di Santo's feathery flirty dress for some sass. If you still long for a fairytale train, try a short-long gown such as Bellantuono Collezioni's tulle vision.
AUSTERE YET CHIC
This Spring 2019 season, austere, Victoriana-inspired wedding looks are giving princessy ballgowns a run for its money. And we couldn't be happier — there's an air of quiet sophistication that bridal gowns from the early aughts offer. These picks from Marchesa, Monique Lhuillier and Elisabetta Polignano prove that you don't need to bare all to turn heads on your big day.
CELEBRATE WITH COLOUR
If you're planning for a summer wedding, why not join in with the fun by walking down the aisle with some vibrancy? Carolina Herrera's chic lilac frock and Angel Sanchez's understated nude-and-blue gown are dreamy options if loud colours aren't your cup of tea, but for rulebreakers, opt for Vera Wang's mind-blowing red look — how beautiful is that tulip-like neckline?
AN AIR OF FORMALITY
Jackets are all the rage this season, and apart from pantsuits, it is now deemed en vogue to don a jacket with a feminine gown or frothy skirt of your liking. Try Naeem Khan's bold pantsuit with a strong lapel; Elizabeth Fillmore for its quintessentially chic patternwork; and Savin for a rockstar meets princess aesthetic.
A WHIMSICAL WEDDING
This one's for the nonconformist whose dream wedding look does not entail a meter-long train. Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood's avant-garde look is a refreshing take on bridalwear, while Watters' fanciful gowns decked with motifs are made for the lighthearted, spunky bride.
Planning to pull an Emily Ratajkowski for your nuptials? Having a courthouse wedding doesn't mean that you can't dress to the nines. Say "I do" to your S.O. in a chic Lela Rose top-and-pants combo, Justin Alexander's transparent trench over a jumpsuit, or Gracy Accad's lacey coat dress.
