We've asked Elaine from Elaine Rawlings bridal boutique in Truro to fill us in on what's hot for this years bridal style. Over to you Elaine:
2020 is the year for Weddings in Cornwall judging by the amount of lovely Cornish brides coming through the Truro boutique. The new season is brimming with gorgeous new collections from my bridal designers, seeing the most diverse collection of gowns I feel I have been able to choose from. From drop shoulders to delicate lace sleeves, boho to ball gown, intricate 3D florals to classic clean mikado and crepe, there are so many fabrics and styles gracing the rails for this year’s bride. Here are some of my favourites for 2020 combining all that’s on trend straight from the bridal runway.
The ball gown is back!
The ball gown had fallen out of favour for a few seasons, but with a modern upgrade of gorgeous laces, soft billowing tulle skirts combined with the options of pink and nude undertones this style will make you feel princess perfect for a Cornish fairytale wedding. Think Pendennis or Caerhays Castle as your backdrop, just perfect.
Two of my favourites princess ball gowns to hit the rails are Mia and Lowenna by Justin Alexander. Lowenna has a beautiful illusion back, finished in a Venice lace with a cummerbund accentuating the waist to create an empire waistline. The pink champagne colour is also very on trend!
Mia is again finished in the same Venice lace with Point D’esprit tulle and off the shoulder detail. Choose traditional Ivory or a nude undertone making the lace over layer really pop.
If you want understated classic then crepe and mikado fabrics are for you. Two of my new favourites this season are Brooke and Penelope by Justin Alexander.
Brooke is all about elegance, with a Sabrina neckline this fit and flare gown is sure to accentuate your figure. The illusion back is outlined by Venice lace that is also featured along the back hem. The gown is finished with chapel length train. Don’t forget girls it’s all about the back!
Penelope embodies the clean and classic trend. This V-neck stretch Mikado fit and flare gown with detachable thin beaded belt is all you’ll want for your big day.
Boho is back
Boho is also still a firm favourite for 2020 and particularly popular in Cornwall For those wanting to steer away from traditional Ivory Lillian West’s new collection incorporates bold floral designs, tulle floaty skirts and the most gorgeous dark nude undertones appealing to a festival or laid back beach theme combine with a flower crown and you’ll have the ultimate boho Cornish wedding.
Two of my favourites are; Emily and Fearne.
Emily epitomises soft romance, this sweetheart A-line gown with 3D flower petals and tulle skirt with a chapel length train is romantic and flirty and perfect for an outdoor ceremony.
Fearne is a gorgeous slim A-line gown. Handmade floral cut-outs accent the thin beaded detail at the waist and the drop shoulder sleeves are bang on trend and detachable! Showing off a trim waist it also comes in the popular darker nude under layer.
