Expected Wedding Attire Trends for 2020

At a wedding, everyone’s eyes will be on the bride, groom, and the rest of the wedding party. It’s important for them to look their best. Here are some expected wedding attire trends for 2020 to help make this happen.


The 2020 wedding attire trends include a move toward more over-the-top wedding dresses, including ball gowns. Dresses with at least a touch of color, dresses with high-low hems, one-shoulder dresses, jumpsuits, and bridal separates are increasing in popularity. Long puffy sleeves, polka dots, bows, lace, floral patterns, embroidery, and embellishments are among the wedding attire trends for 2020. Some women are even choosing mini-dresses or other bold shapes, prints, or colors. These wedding outfits may include velvet, satin, or suede. Brides are more likely to wear headbands, barrettes, combs, or hats instead of veils than in recent years. When they do opt for veils, expect to see more statement veils. Brides may wear multiple dresses throughout the event or use a few different coverups to change up their looks, such as capes or jackets. Wedding hair and makeup are likely to look more natural.


Grooms are choosing slightly more formal wear, such as three-piece suits. They’re more likely to choose a more mix-and-match style rather than a tuxedo. They may include pieces with different patterns or fabrics to add interest to their attire. Grooms are increasingly opting for blue suits over black.

The Wedding Party

Couples are choosing their favorite people of either sex to stand up with them. They are having gender-neutral wedding parties, instead of sticking with the more traditional bridesmaids and groomsmen. Wedding parties are likely to be smaller. Whatever the size and composition of your wedding party, both men and women are choosing a more mix-and-match look. Couples are allowing their wedding party to choose from a variety of options within a  color palette. The wedding party need not wear outfits that match exactly. Patterns are also increasing in popularity instead of just outfits comprising solid colors. As with bridal wear, bridesmaids are starting to wear more gender-neutral outfits like pantsuits and jumpsuits. Neutral colored clothing is becoming more common as well.
