2019 Wedding Fashion Trends to Steal for Your Day

Wedding style is the ultimate way to show off your personality on the special day, and we love it when brides or grooms embrace their attire to the fullest! Inspired by the latest fashion trends in the wedding world and to get ready for the upcoming 3rd Annual Love It Up Town Center event coming up in two weeks on August 4th, Tidewater and Tulle and Town Center of Virginia Beach have collaborated with some lovely Town Center shops to share some of the latest wedding style trends with makeup looks by Bluemercury, jewelry from Boyer's Diamonds, and wardrobe from Men's Wearhouse and the newly opened David's Bridal Virginia Beach.

Dramatic Necklines

Plunge, high-low, or cascading, the neckline of any wedding gown becomes an instant statement of the style preferred by its wearer, so of course, this trend is an instant favorite for all. For the more daring bride who wants to show off some of her best curves, the plunging neckline brings the allure. For a modern boho bride who adores unique high fashion flair, the off-the-shoulder illusion neckline adds total wedding drama.

Statement Sleeves

Vintage gets a makeover with wedding gown sleeves taking on new looks. Years ago, the royal wedding of Kate and Will gave us the advent of long sleeves, but now those long sleeves are transforming into bell, flowy, and bishop sleeves (as seen from our shoot), and we can't get enough of them! We love the diversity of options and that they're great for any season, especially fall and winter.

Classic black tie tuxedo with black bow tie and black shoes for ballroom wedding

Classic and Timeless

Thanks to the royal weddings, classic elegance is the trend that never really left. The romance of formal black tie will never go out of style. In a time where individuality reigns, you can still make a handsome classic tuxedo or gorgeous gown "you" through accessories and even subtle surprises like boutonniere charms or stitched heart patches sewn inside. If you're having a ballroom wedding, this look is unforgettable!

Bridal Capes

Not every bride loves a veil. Alternative accessories can swap out the traditional veil like a bridal cape. Long and oh so dramatic, capes are getting the wedding touch and make for the perfect accessory to be worn for part or all of the big day. Made from tulle like a veil, these are meant to flow. Consider your wedding gown style first before investing in a cape to make sure they complement each other. A strapless or sweetheart neckline is our personal favorite with a bridal cape!

Colorful and Textured Suits

Those who are looking for the ultimate dapper look are finding colors and textures their new style inspiration. From bright hues to soft linens, gone are the days where grooms only have that one cookie cutter rental suit. You know the one. Personalizations abound depending on preference, particularly when it comes to fabrics, neckwear, and other accessories. Unique attire isn't just for the brides! Anyone identifying with the more masculine flair has a range of options from which to choose.

Perfectly Patterned

Florals are stealing the scene again in fashion, but this time with bridesmaid dresses. Short, midi, and long dresses don patterns of various color palettes, but we are especially loving the ones that are reminiscent of garden romance. Patterns give a lovely pop of fun amidst solid colors and even lend themselves to actually being able to wear the dress again after their friends' weddings.
