From the Bridal Fashion Week, we found 2019 gowns will include plenty of bows, sparkles, statement sleeves, halter gowns, capes, touches of colour, multi-tiered dresses, and as Alin Le’ Kal (the celebrity couture designer who just debuted his collection at Paris Fashion Week) comments:
"Designers are just loving feathers! It is going to be everywhere. Crystals and Feathers, you can’t go wrong! I think we could possibly still see feathers in 2020."
Celebrity make-up artist with a huge following, Melissa Sassine says:
"I definitely feel that for the Bridal trend for 2019, less is more."
"What I mean by this is in relation to the colour palette. Even though they want flawless long-lasting Bridal makeup, they still want to look the best version of themselves, without overly dramatic eyes and harsh contours."
"My favourite Bridal colour palette consists of Beautiful neutral tones & light champagne shimmer on the eyes, fluffy lashes, natural bronzers to warm up the skin, soft highlighters, with pink/nude lustrous lips."
Bridal gowns are embracing bows this year, and the love for bows doesn’t end there. Nicole Kidman’s hairstylist Kylee Heath, who has been trusted with the gorgeous locks of Margot Robbie, Sofia Vergara, Isla Fisher and Emma Roberts comments:
"With ribbons and bows being a huge trend throughout award season, I think it will carry over to wedding hair. I love the idea of a low ponytail with a ribbon tied in it or a bow to finish off the look."
Tiffany Thurtell, the creative director at Alan Buki Hair (the celebrity hairdresser who worked on Miranda Kerr and Madonna’s hair) comments:
"The biggest wedding trend we have seen coming into 2019 is hair accessories. Hair throughout 2018 became so undone and relaxed giving a very bohemian vibe. Moving into 2019, hair is still looking relaxed with glossy loose waves. However, it is becoming more polished with a glam/luxe vibe. The use of hair accessories is very on trend. Being a hair scarf, hair clips, diamond hair pins. I have included some examples below."
"Ponytails are also on trend with extensions being used to create a much fuller, textured look. Brides also being able to use extension ponytails for multiple hair looks on their special day."
The advanced bridal skincare brand and face mask choice for celebrities at the Oscars, LUIERE comments:
"This year is all about looking natural and flawless with a subtle glow. This is why brides love using hydrating treatments before their big day. Japanese brides-to-be have been using face masks religiously every day for weeks before their wedding, and this is becoming a trend now for skincare lovers around the world. We recommend using a deeply hydrating mask that will hydrate from deep within the dermis, without clogging, leaving you with a beautiful natural glow for the big day."
Engagement & Wedding Rings
Temelli Jewellery loved by super models Jennifer Hawkins, Rachael Finch and Jesinta Campbell comments:
Solitaire Rings, Trilogy Rings, & Halo Rings:
"Some of our most popular include the solitaire (single diamond), trilogy (three diamonds) and the halo (diamonds surrounding the main diamond)."
Rose Gold & Gemstones:
"We have noticed a trend towards rose gold and gemstones such as Morganite (peachy color) and Padparadscha Sapphires (peachy pink colour), as well as white gold with blue gems including Sapphire and Tanzanite."
Statement Diamond Rings:
"Wedding bands are steering away for the traditional and going for larger statement diamonds, detailed intricate rings with a twist or detailing and crown shape rings that curve around the engagement ring with larger fancy cut diamonds such as marquise, baguette and pear shape diamonds."
