This major 2019 wedding dress trend will look stunning in photos

You can’t go wrong with a classic look.

If you’re getting married or just a wedding dress nut (no shame in it), you’ll probably be aware that it’s Bridal Fashion Week.

The runways have been cleared of wacky high-fashion pieces to make way for bridal couture and we’re loving watching this season’s key trends emerge.

We’ve seen plenty of stand-out styles but our favourite is one of the most understated – the move towards simple wedding gowns.

The trend is the antithesis to the lace, beading, ruffles and embellishment that many designers favour, putting the focus on luxurious fabrics and stunning silhouettes.

Devoid of fussy details of any kind, a dress like this will flatter any bride and will never date, making for a timeless look in wedding photos.

Brides-to-be might be wary of such an understated dress but it doesn’t have to look plain. Keeping the gown actually gives the bride lots of options for putting her own stamp on the look.

Accessorise with a fancy veil, trendy cape or stunning jewellery or go a bit extra with your hair or makeup if you feel like something is missing.

As for celebs who might follow the trend? We know that Meghan Markle has favoured simple looks during her engagement so she could well keep this up with her wedding dress next month.
