2020 Bridal Market Trend Recap

Sarah Seven 2020 Abigail is Italian collection

Bridal Market is our favorite time of year. We live for seeing designers’ new collections and even discovering new wedding dress designers to stock in our Lovely Bride shops.

Plus Bridal Market is a time when all of our store owners come together in New York City. This gives us an opportunity to catch up with each other, of course.  But more importantly it gives us a chance to brainstorm ways to better serve, you,  our brides.  You can almost always find us strategizing on how we can ensure you have the absolute best experience finding your dress in our shops.

If you follow @lovelybride on Instagram, you likely caught our daily 2020 Bridal Market coverage! We took you along to appointments and shows and asked for your feedback on what you’d like to see more of at Lovely Bride. Here you’ll find a recap of the some of our favorite trends seen at the 2020 Bridal Market. And we’ll introduce you to two new designers (Prea James and Georgia Young) that we will begin carrying in select stores!  Read on for a sneak peak of what’s to come for 2020 and follow us on Instagram to get updates on new collection launches, trunk shows, and designer events!

Georgia Young 2020 Bridal Market modern off the shoulder

Trend: Off the Shoulder

(above) New Designer Alert, Lovelies: meet  Georgia Young. We’ll stock Georgia Young gowns at Lovely Bride NYC, Lovely Bride Dallas and our first international store in London UK opening in Spring 2020.  It is truly hard to pick just one but this Met dress drips with style. The fabric of the Met is actually a micro fine mesh, so up close, it has a bit of a tough edge.

Sarah Seven 2020 Abigail is Italian collection

Sarah Seven is stocked in Lovely Bride shops in: Charleston, Cincinnati, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Philadelphia. Phoenix, and Washington D.C.

Prea James 2020 bridal market wedding dress with cut outs
Scout Bridal off-the-shoulder wedding dress with cutouts

Trend: Cutouts

(left) Prea James is another new designer we are excited to debut for our brides at Lovely Bride Dallas, Denver, New York, and San Diego. This style is modern with a sexy touch- featuring a subtle cutout at the waist.  We also love the short sleeves, mock-neck, and split front.

(right) Scout Bridal delivers the cutout trend on a sheath style off-the-shoulder wedding dress. The dress makes us smile but so does Scout’s cheery model. You can find Scout in our Atlanta, Charleston, Cincinnati, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Phoenix Lovely Bride shops.

Trend: One Shoulder

(above) Our Lovely Bride NYC shop is the Alexandra Grecco flagship (meaning we have ALL of the styles) so luckily we don’t have to choose just one. But if we had to, it may be this one shoulder number. This will be in a lot of Lovely Bride shops this Spring!  We carry her in LA, Miami, Houston, Dallas, Rochester, Philadelphia, Charleston, San Francisco, Cincinnati and our newest US shop opening in November in Charlotte, N.C.

Chosen by One Day one shoulder metallic wedding dress
Georgia Young Couture Bridal Market 2020

Trend: One Shoulder

(left) At Chosen by One Day we snapped this shimmering, metallic one-shoulder wedding dress for the bride who isn’t afraid to go her own way with a non-white wedding dress! Chosen by One Day is available at almost all Lovely Bride locations (except Lovely Bride Dallas.)

(right) Another Georgia Young wedding dress that we loved. This one is a structured one-shoulder look that has eye-catching details at the waist and hips.

Katherine Tash strapless cowlneck wedding dress

Trend: Cowlneck

(above) At Katherine Tash, we loved this strapless wedding dress with the unexpected cowl-neck detail. You can find more Katherine Tash at our Lovely Bride stores in Atlanta, Charleston, and New York City.

Prea James bridal market 2020 clean line deep vneck wedding dress
Theia Couture Bridal clean lines deep vneck crepe wedding dress

Trend: Clean Lines

(right) Theia delivers modern, clean wedding dress silhouettes season after season.  We loved the seam detailing  on the deep v neckline and through the low hip that adds just a touch of boho. Theia is available at Lovely Bride Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Rochester, San Francisco, and Washington D.C.

Tara Lauren Bridal Market 2020 romantic a line wedding dress
Louvienne 2020 sweetheart neckline a line wedding dress

Trend: Romantic A- Line

(left) Tara Lauren is a bride favorite for romantic wedding dresses. The intricately detailed a line frame with floral bodice, deep v neckline, and voluminous skirt was stunning. We love the nude color too. Tara Lauren is available in almost all Lovely Bride locations.

(right) We got a peek at some new styles from one of our exclusive brands, Louvienne.  Classic romance is feeling so fresh again, so we are all about this strapless sweetheart A-line but with a daring plunge to make it 2020. Plus it looks so dang cute on our real girl stylist at Lovely Bride NYC. Louivienne is available at all Lovely Bride locations and will be available at our new Charlotte, N.C. and London locations!
Dear Heart Bridal A line Squareneck wedding dress
(above) Dear Heart bridal featured another a line wedding dress that stole our hearts. We loved the blue color, the square neckline, and the tiny bow at the waist. Dear Heart is available at Lovely Bride in Charleston, Cincinnati, Charlotte (coming soon!), Denver, Miami, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Rochester, and Washington D.C.
