Understatement of the century: There’s a lot that goes into wedding planning. And Bridal Fashion Week—where more than 30 brands each show at least 15 new looks biannually—doesn’t make checking a wedding dress off the to-do list much easier. We can’t tell you exactly which one to pick, but we can tell you what trends from the fall 2020 runways are actually worth following.
The best and biggest trends from the latest bridal collections fall into two camps: the extreme and the understated. The tiered ruffles in crinkly crepe fabric, millennial pink gowns, and watercolor florals are impossible to miss. The easy necklines and refined sleeve styles are subtler, one-off details that tie together an elegant wedding-day look. No matter which direction you go, the top looks from the season allow you to kick off your hunt with gowns that are anything but cookie-cutter.
Straight from the Bridal Fashion Week runways, here are the best (and no-brainer) wedding dress trends for fall 2020.
