In response to couples moving away from traditional weddings (and, in some instances, marriage altogether), we are entering a new era of nuptial wear. One in which designers are slowly starting to inch away from what's traditionally thought of as "bridal," and are instead creating styles for women who want to look and feel like themselves on their wedding day. And even though beautiful white gowns will never go out of fashion when it comes to weddings, brands are now starting to also cater to the "anti-brides" who value practicality over a look that they will only wear once in their life, style over tradition, and pants over a dress.
While jumpsuits have been dominating the bridal game for a few years now, the last few seasons have seen a rise in even more avant-garde (well, for the bridal world) pieces like bomber jackets, tracksuits, and suits. This season saw the continuation of the fashion-forward movement with wedding shorts of all varieties—like, ultra-short (Reem Acra), bike (Ines Di Santo), and capri (Sahroo)—appearing on the Bridal Fashion Week runways, among other edgy designs.
Ahead, the coolest looks from the Spring 2020 collections.
