Off-the-shoulder Wedding Dress for Royal Bliss
There’s nothing new about a princess wedding dress, but each season brings chic and romantic variations for the bride curating a fairytale-inspired vibe for her big day. This year is all about effortless romance—delicate lace motifs, soft silhouettes, and elegant fabrications to complement a relaxed and modern occasion.
Paislee Louise is a fairytale-inspired, off-the-shoulder gown that checks all the pretty style trends, including an elegant silhouette, cascades of pretty lace motifs, and an ultra-flattering neckline to frame your face and shoulders. We especially love the pairing of floral lace motifs and textured tulle—it’s unique without detracting from your timeless ballgown silhouette. Not afraid of making a bold statement? Then opt for Paislee, instead of textured tulle a pop of intrigue in the form of polka-dots is a Disney fairy princess spin that we love!
Breezy princess vibes aside, glitzy beading and crystals are also fully on trend for 2019 brides-to-be, with shimmery off-the-shoulder gowns like Wesley taking runway-and-center. This ballgown offers a more formal take on the royal aesthetic, featuring opalescent beads and Swarovski crystals in a corset-inspired bodice.

The Full Skirt Beach Wedding Dress
It’s 2019, and we’re happy to report that “beach-ready silhouettes” need not be restricted to slim slips and sheaths. Say hello to Tovah by Sottero and Midgley, a princess ballgown that packs light for destination locales and seaside celebrations. A halter neckline adds a sporty touch to this modern style, while shimmery lace looks oh-so-magical against a tropical sunset backdrop.

Fashion Forward Bridal Pantsuit
A lace jumpsuit wedding dress feels undeniably modern, but we say there’s a timeless and inimitable glamour to any playful fashion risk on your big day. (Cue adoring recap of Bianca Jagger’s two-piece stunner from 1971.) For brides of the especially nontraditional ilk, Milan by Maggie Sottero offers a unique bridal look without sacrificing romance or elegance—a wedding pantsuit designed for the most confident and discerning of brides!
Wedding Dress with Thigh-High Slit
A winning 2019 bridal look is all about playing up your favorite features.

And hey, want to show off your shoulders too? Spaghetti straps give this lovely lace gown a relaxed and effortless feel, a gorgeous way to frame your shoulders, collar bones, and décolletage.
