BERTA Spring/Summer 2019 Bridal Collection on Catwalk

BERTA Spring/Summer 2019 Bridal Collection

Hot off the New York bridal fashion week catwalk, the new BERTA Spring/Summer 2019 bridal collection is absolutely incredible. Sparkling wedding dresses with sequins, voluminous trains, feathers, flowing capes, sheer tulle details, plunging necklines and open backs… just wow!

BERTA’s design style is famous for bold, sexy and modern dresses that incorporate vintage materials and retro styles. This season’s collection added a twist never seen in a BERTA collection before – jaw-dropping full sheer illusion dresses that leave little to the imagination.

BERTA Spring/Summer 2019 Bridal Collection on Catwalk

The BERTA Spring/Summer 2019 collection “breaks everything known to be ‘normalized’ in the bridal industry”. I really respect this, and it’s great to see pieces that are fresh, exciting and new. BERTA’s determination to translate an inspiration to the fullest resulted in a collection that is harmonious, charming, sexy, and confident.

Each dress features exquisite hand beading, and the attention to detail really shines through. Every dress has its own theme and entails hours of design and stitch work, dedication, love, and passion. If you’re looking for a wedding dress that will sparkle and shimmer in every light, then you will certainly find that in the BERTA Spring/Summer 2019 collection.

All effortlessly chic, I have so many favourites from this collection it’s hard to choose my favourites, but here goes…

Anne Barge Spring 2019 Bridal Collection - Elle Dress

Anne Barge Spring 2019 Bridal Collection

The Anne Barge Spring 2019 bridal collection is classic, timeless elegance at its finest. Renowned for timeless dresses with a contemporary twist, Anne Barge’s philosophy is simple – “Good design is timeless”. This really shows in the Spring 2019 collection.

Inspired by women who embody femininity, confidence and an innate sense of style, each design has a unique spirit, defined by the neckline and silhouette, and enhanced with refined detailing.

Anne Barge Spring 2019 Bridal Collection - Elle Dress

I adore the romantic feel of these wedding dresses and the modern take on classic silhouettes. Each style from the Anne Barge Spring 2019 collection is created using delicate, luxurious fabrics including Alençon lace and duchess satin. There is such an air of sophistication within this collection of dresses and stylish separates. Exquisite embellishments and beautiful beaded, embroidered lace grace the structured, modern designs, making them very special.

There are no alternative shades appearing in this spring collection, just a perfect palette of soft whites. This adds to the romance and timelessness of these beautiful dresses. But the feature I love most from the Anne Barge Spring 2019 collection is the addition of graceful capes…


Chloe Wedding Dress from the Anne Barge Spring 2019 Bridal Collection

This sweetheart A-line wedding dress has the prettiest beaded embroidery that forms flowers that cascade down the dress. The sheer tulle cape with pretty floral design on the shoulders adds such a beautifully romantic touch to the Chloe dress, don’t you think?

Avid followers of The Wedding Community will know just how excited I get when the bridal collections for the new season launch. Well ladies, it’s that time of year again!

The latest 2019 bridal collections debuted recently at what is set to be the UK’s very own bridal ‘super-show’. This was the first year the prestigious White Gallery and newly created London Bridal Fashion Week took place under one roof. Hosted at the ExCeL in London, designers and manufacturers showcased their new 2019 wedding dresses. This event is where bridal retailers and press get the first glance at the trends for the upcoming bridal fashion season.

2019 Wedding Dress Trends

With two Royal weddings taking place this year (in case you had forgotten!) I was really excited to see what trends, styles and fabrics will emerge.

I’m seriously in wedding dress heaven looking at all the amazing designs straight off the bridal catwalk, and I’m excited to share these hot off the press pictures of some of the new 2019 wedding dresses.

Sleeves and Backs

For a while now we have seen more and more wedding dresses with sleeves, pretty much since Katherine Middleton’s wedding dress back in 2011. I’m pleased to say that long sleeves are still a big thing for 2019 bridal collections. The catwalk was full of incredible long sleeves, in both lace and sheer fabrics.
