Traditional styles and colors of wedding dresses never go away and neither do bows, lace, feathers, and other glitz. There is something for every taste whether a bride likes ball gowns, plunging necklines, black and white, or color. It's all there.
However, certain trends emerge each year. 2019 is no different, and it is no surprise the wedding of Meghan Markle in 2018 sparked several major trends on the runways.
The Meghan Markle No Care Hair Look
The Duchess of Sussex rocked an intentionally undone bun which celebrity hair stylist Serge Normant called, "A messy bun. Messy in a controlled way, making sure it doesn’t become a whole mess after a few hours!"

The Meghan Markle Minimalist Look
Meghan’s understated and unadorned bridal gown apparently surprised the fashionistas around the world, and designers have leaped at the simple but elegant and sophisticated wedding dress, showing it in every collection. Even the decorated dresses were influenced by the slim clean-cut line of her dresses.

"You will see more and more dress designs emphasizing the collar bones. Romantic off-the-shoulder necklines, off-the-shoulder sleeves, and detailed straps will be the dominant neckline trend." — Sharon Sever, Galia Lahav head designer (Above, Left)
Dresses with buttons down the back are big right now. The same goes for dramatic cut-outs, sweet details and eye-catching bows. This year, designers are choosing to add a little flair to the back of their creations there is something to see coming and going down the aisle. (Below, Right)

These pretty loops have brought dainty vibes to wedding dresses season after season, but we can officially say that bows are beginning to pack a different kind of punch. After all, they're capable of doing more than simply defining a waistline. This season, watch out for larger-than-life-bows
Chantilly lace and opaque satin are still popular, but new-age geometric patterns and cuts are definitely on the rise. And for good reason. Whatever the interpretation—the style covers everything from crystal lattice beadwork to mod necklines. Examining the photos, geometrics seems to fall into three classes: Unusual fabric where the geometry is in the weave, traditional fabrics pieced geometrically, and finally the form for the dress itself, with a strong trend to the asymmetrical.

Whether the outrageous comes from the designers or those brides who want to stand out and don’t care how it looks, they never disappoint. The see-through, although not dead, is no longer shocking enough, so this year Celia Kritharioti gave the traditional wedding gown a millennial twist. This bride won’t need anyone to manage her train … that’s taken care of with ten helium balloons.
