The bridal trend for bold trims has taken a fresh turn for 2019, with designers at both Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week and London Bridal Week showcasing gowns with ornate gilded and brooch details. It’s a really interesting take on bridal – putting focus on neck and shoulders and adding individuality to even the most classic style. Among our favourites are designs that channel a 1930s cocktail gown look, although we also love the bold 1960s-style flowers used by designers such as Marco & Maria and the strong neckline details on flowing and understated dresses by designers such as YolanCris. Here are 12 runway looks that show the versatility of this bridal trend.
