Top Bridal Trends Spotted at London Bridal Fashion Week

As one of the leading capital cities in the world, London is an international centre for arts, culture, fashion and business.

Top international names unveiled their 2020 collections at renowned bridal trade show London Bridal Fashion Week incorporating White Gallery, the UK’s leading bridal fashion event. 

London Bridal Fashion Week will run a full Fashion Show programme alongside the exhibition, featuring a selection of the finest UK and international labels. This is the perfect opportunity to spot the latest trends.

Here are some of the top bridal fashion trends spotted at London Bridal Fashion Week:

Bridal Sleeves

Sleeves

One of the key trends to emerge from London Bridal Fashion Week & White Gallery 2019 was sleeves! We saw a variety of sleeve types from designers and manufacturers this year. Danit Levi and Ivory & Co featured short sleeves in their collections, perfect for a summer bride. While Herve Paris, Lillian West and Morilee showcased how versatile long sleeves can be, with cuffed and fluted sleeves featuring across their collections.

Halterneck Trends

Halterneck

After the royal wedding in 2018, it was no surprise to see halterneck dresses on the catwalk this season. Allure Bridals, Eternity, Ronald Joyce and Coya Collection featured dresses with beaded necklines, while Victoria Sanders' collection featured a flower print dress with a frilled halterneck. This look is perfect for a bride looking for something less traditional, but still on-trend.

Tulle Wedding Dresses

Layered Tulle

Bridal favourite tulle was prominent this season, with many layering the fabric for maximum effect. Tal Kedem, Le Papillion by Modeca and Morilee showcased tulle in the traditional sense with large layers from the waistline down, while Dandon London and Tiffanys featured the fabric as part of a mermaid/trumpet silhouette.

Separates & Two Pieces

Separates first appeared at White Gallery in 2017 and are now here to stay. Lillian West, Allure and BSS by Safiyya Babayeva showcased cropped tops and trousers to suit the growing number of boho brides, while Eliza Jane Howell & Peony Rice’s collections featured separates covering the mid-drift for the more conservative bride.

Feathers

Feathers

Feathers were a key trend among both London Bridal Fashion Week & White Gallery brands. White Gallery designers were daring with their use of feathers, with Danit Levi using feathered edging along a high leg split and Eliza Jane Howell featuring peacock feathers in a showstopping gown. LBFW brands, including Peony Rice, Ronald Joyce & Eternity Bridal used feathered boleros to create a dramatic look.

Colored Dresses

Colored Dresses

Color featured heavily on the catwalk this year. Modeca and Eternity Bridal chose dark colours for maximum impact, while Lusan Mandongus opted for light blue undertones for a more subtle pop of colour. Allure Bridals included the perfect alternative to white or ivory, with a stunning silver gown. And Coya Collection’s showstopping catwalk featured a myriad of colors, offering a range of looks for bridesmaids or wedding guests.

Lingerie Inspired Dresses

If you’re looking for something a little sexier, look no further than these lingerie inspired gowns. Lilly & Charles and Sincerity featured exposed boning, while Victoria Sanders and Le Papillion by Modeca showcased dresses with built-in bustiers. Danit Levi’s bold sheer illusion gown was a true showstopper.
