Fall is one of our favorite times of the year. Yes, the leaves are gorgeous, and the apple cider and PSLs are cool, but we LIVE for the Knot’s Couture Show every October. And, just like every other year, the great bridal showcase did not disappoint. If you’re obsessed with bridal fashion (like we are), but couldn’t catch a flight to the Big Apple, don’t worry—we’ve got you covered. Keep reading for our 2019 fall and winter trend report from the shows.

Metallic Gowns

This hot trend could easily replace the traditional wedding dress or could be worn for your second look or even for your pre-wedding events—think super chic bridal shower attire. From silver to gold, to copper, have fun with this daring look.

Simple and Classic

If you’re a no-frills type of bride, you will be in heaven. Megan Markle made a bold statement with her simple dress, and the designers took note. Most brands had at least one simple look. No lace or sparkle, the modern look of these gowns allows your beauty to command all the attention.

We were stunned to see so many capelets and intricately designed bolero jackets paired with a variety of gowns but loving it all at the same time. Capelets offer the perfect solution for chilly fall nights or a cover-up during religious ceremonies.


Halter Necklines

Another new wedding dress trend featured halter necklines. This sleek look is both timeless and chic. It’s perfect for the bride that wants a regal look. We could not help but try on this beautiful jumpsuit. This ensemble, in particular, has a detachable train offering two looks in one.


Move Over White; Blue is the New Hue

Almost all the designers had some representation of the new blue trend. From soft shades of the sky tone to dramatic pigmentation reminiscent of the sea, we witnessed some departure from the traditional white. Would you dare to go blue for your big day?
