Don’t get us wrong: Bishop sleeves, boatneck silhouettes and jumpsuits are still going strong, but next year’s crop of bridal wear is in another league entirely. From silver-threaded embroidery to 3-D organza tulips, these seven gorgeous gowns from Galia Lahav’s brand-new GALA and Fancy White collections have us saying “I do” to a very stylish 2020 ceremony.
Shimmery Elegance (G-403)
There’s no better way to turn heads as you walk down the aisle than by covering yourself in light-reflecting sparkles. This A-line dress with sequin-covered netting features a deep V plunge in both front and back, plus crystal-covered straps and a mini bow belt for extra shine. Just imagine dancing the night away in this glittering frock (no Kirakira+ filter necessary).
Stunning Statement (Meghan)
The satin coat consisting of an oversized bow and balloon statement sleeves is actually removable, so you’re basically getting two dresses for the price of one. Underneath it? A semi-sheer silver-embroidered strapless gown with a corset bodice.
Dramatic Romance (Aretha)
One of the biggest wedding trends for 2020: non-white bridal gowns. This subtle lilac and silver princess-style dress features a plunging corset bodice with an off-the-shoulder neckline and layers of glitter-flecked tulle and organza. Oh, and there’s a matching veil for even more high-fashion drama (the only kind allowed at your wedding, obvi).
Sweet and Swept Away (G-411)
Mark our words: Bows will still be trending next year, like the ones on the shoulders of this soft and airy A-line gown. And when you’re ready to do the Electric Slide on the dance floor, the silk gauze bow “sleeves” can be detached from the sheer-paneled bodice.
Fluid Florals (Judy)
You’ve seen strapless mermaid gowns all over your Pinterest, but we promise you haven’t seen anything like this. Hand-embroidered lace and light silver floral embellishments cover this trumpet-style gown fit for a goddess. Add sheer sleeves with matching cuff embroidery and a multi-layered full tulle skirt for a winter ceremony, or leave the strapless corset bodice as is for a warmer wedding date.
Allover Embroidery (G-410)
Next year’s brides will be all about the thigh-high slit, like the one on this glass-beaded number. Not only does it give the illusion of legs for days but it’s also perfect for breaking it down at the after-party (anyone who’s ever tried to dance in a pencil skirt can relate). We also love the flattering femininity of the wrap-style skirt and sheer deep-V off-the-shoulder neckline.
Layered Lace (Priyanka)
Is anything more romantic than a neckline made entirely of 3-D organza petals? (No, the answer is definitely not.) A structured petticoat is layered beneath silk tulle for added volume, and the plunging neckline is mirrored on the back of the A-line gown. No matter what angle the photographer (or videographer, or disposable Kodak favor–using guest) catches you, this dress will make it ultra flattering.
