The New York Bridal Fashion Week revealed gowns that added a new spice to already popular looks. We recognized these three trends as ones we could see taking off in the destination wedding world in Fall/Winter 2020. 

1. Smooth Operator

Singing Sade’s song in our heads, we couldn’t help but fall in love with this year’s innovative designs using the classic “smooth” look. Bring elegance and simplicity to your Tuscany ceremony as your gown radiates light off of the stunning Italian sunset.

2. Bubble Sleeve

Paris chapel bells chime right along with these bubble sleeves. This year designers added fresh elements to the sleeve with cold shoulders, ties and capping. Get ready to say “Je le veux” in a gown like this!

3. Padded Headbands

Not sold on the traditional veil? This new accessory trend may be for you then! Padded headbands are making their comeback in the bridal world in shades of white, champagne and blush. Considering having this halo add to your garden wedding look!
