He or she proposed, you said yes, and now it's time to choose The Dress. For some brides, they find the perfect strapless, tulle ball gown in a matter of weeks. For others, it's only after months and months of Pinterest deep dives and shopping trips that they finally nail their ideal look. The journey to buying your dream dress can be difficult and, often times, emotional. (At least from the tears I've witnessed on Say Yes to the Dress.)
To make your search less stressful, start by ID'ing the latest bridal trends. Checking out what went down the runway can give you a good idea of designs you definitely want and details you can possibly do without for your walk down the aisle. (Heavy crystal beading not for you? That's okay!) In order to give you a better idea of what you can expect to see in bridal salons across the country last year, I went straight to the source: top bridal designers themselves, including the creatives at Monique Lhullier, Lela Rose, and more. Ahead, they share their predictions for the hottest wedding dress trends of spring 2019. Oh, and congrats!
