It's time to start looking for your wedding gown and you are not sure which one to pick? Before you even begin with your research, let us stop you for a moment and show you some of the latest bridal fashion trends. The most popular silhouettes? The classic ballgown, of course, along with its modern counterparts – romantic A-line dresses, fit-and-flare, shorter styles, trouser suits and even bridal rompers.

Fashionable details include tiered skirts, sculpted bodices, puffy or off-the-shoulder sleeves, deep necklines, bare backs, keyhole cut-outs, side and front slits, high necks, feathers, bows, foliage appliques and oversized 3D blooms. And if you are brave enough to wear something other than white, then you will be happy to hear that designers have been using many gorgeous colours such as lavender, pastel blue, forest green, metalic silver and every possible shade of nude and pink.

Get ready to start pinning because we give you eight of the most inspirational bridal fashion trends straight from the catwalks!

Yes, the big, floor-sweeping ballgown is definitely in vogue, and it comes in many shapes and sizes. It can be a simple, embellishment-free dress made of satin or tulle or something very elaborate with thousands of petals sewn into the fabric. Even designers who usually refrain from ballgowns included at least one in their bridal spring 2019 collection. Some of them feature detachable layers such as overskirts, peplums and sleeves so that you can transform your look from Cinderella to dancing queen.

Inspired by royal weddings from bygone eras, many designers wanted to design something a real-life princess would wear to her wedding. That’s why there were so many romantic laces and embroidered silks, big voluminous skirts, high necks, puffed sleeves, sweeping veils and sparkly tiaras.

Pink really stood out on the catwalk, appearing in so many beautiful shades from very pale blush hues to the most vibrant of shades. Vera Vang took this colour as the main focus of her collection and blended in a few other bold pastel tones to dramatize the looks.

Floral embroideries and three-dimensional appliques have never been more extravagant! Really big blossoms are perfect to make a statement even if you are wearing the simplest dress. Some designers took it to the next level and adorned both the gown and a headpiece in florals.

Elsewhere, designers used leaves and foliage as their main motifs which appeared in the form of embroidery and lace appliques. This trend is inspired by wedding decorations made solely from lush greenery!

Pretty bows have been popular for a few seasons in a row, but this time they were really eye-catching and appeared on sleeves, skirts and bodices. Sometimes they were dyed in sultry shades to contrast the whiteness of the dress, and sometimes they appeared almost out of nowhere, tucked inside clouds of tulle.

Feather embellishments were used to adorn both wedding dresses and beautiful long or short capes worn on top of them. Combined with shimmery satins and gleaming crystals, they can really add drama to the whole styling!

Moving away from traditional bridal fashion, some designers introduced fabulous party dresses head-to-toe covered in glistening sequins and beads. It is a preferred choice of outfit for an evening bash, be it an informal reception, a pre-wedding event or a disco-style after party!

Romantic brides looking for a trendy alternative option that replaces a traditional ballgown will love dresses with tiered skirts. Flirty layers stacked upon each other give glamour and opulence to the gown, and yet the silhouette is much less restraining.
