Brides-to-be looking for the perfect wedding dress should know by now that fashion trends begin at Paris Couture Fashion Week. Designers showing during Couture fashion week know a thing or two about how to wow when walking down an aisle, and often close their runway shows with an awe-inspiring bride wearing an even more breathtaking wedding dress. The Fall/Winter 2019/2020 Haute Couture collections brought tons of new wedding dress trends for brides-to-be just starting to shop. Here, our favorite trends from the Couture fashion week runways, and 35 wedding dresses that perfectly exemplify them.
Forget blush and a hint of something blue, the next big color trend to hit wedding dresses will be all colors of the rainbow. The couture runways were full of multi-colored gowns and we think it's a perfect fit for brides. One trend that's already hit bridal runways, was seen at quite a few of these high-fashion houses—black accents, from slight embroidery, to thin belts, and even veils, caught our eye at Chanel, Giambattista Valli and more.
Layers of exaggerated ruffles are the next big thing to hit wedding dresses— Giambattista Valli, Chanel, and George Chakra, gave gowns tons of structure and voluminous shapes.
While Paris Couture Fashion Week might not be the first place one thinks of when they think classic and simple, several designers—Vivienne Westwood, Ralph & Russo, Chanel, Dior—proved that subtlety is painfully chic when done right. And Asian influences were seen on silk embroidered gowns at Ralph & Russo and Elie Saab.
