NWA Fall 2020 Wedding Dress Trends


Wedding dresses with sleeves are a hot trend for 2020 here in Northwest Arkansas! You will see a ton of bell and boho sleeves during the fall 2020 wedding season. A bell sleeve is fitted from the shoulder to the elbow or mid-forearm area and flairs out to the wrist. Sleeves do not have to be created out of the same fabric as the wedding dress. They often are designed with a lighter material like tulle, lace, or netting. From a full lace sleeve to balloon sleeve you will find a variety of choices in an endless sea of different shaped dresses.

Floral Designs

From colorful floral prints to hand-sewn flowers, the floral designs are extremely trendy for both the 2020 and 2021 wedding season! You will typically see the bigger floral patterns on A-line dresses but dresses with fitted crape and big florals on the train with ornate scalloped edging are also huge right now!

Let yourself SHINE as you bring on the bling! Glitter, beading, and iridescent sequences are a hot wedding dress trend for the fall 2020 wedding season and are expected to stay for 2021! Bling on wedding dresses is nothing new to the dress industry. You will see chunky beading take a backseat in the fashion world and all over sparkle take center stage. There are A LOT of options coming out right now. If you do choose something with a little bling just be sure you don’t overdo it with accessories!

Plunging Necklines

Plunging necklines are all the rage in fall 2020 wedding dresses. You will see plunging necklines in every style, shape, and material. To prevent wardrobe malfunctions the deep plunge may feature an illusion neckline (a sheer fabric that offers support and structure).

Ruffles have been heavily featured in many gowns and are definitely in style. They are the perfect addition to give a little extra texture and volume to a dress. Ruffles also fit the trend of light and airy looking for dresses that are extremely popular right now. They can also make the dress have a more fairytale or fanciful look while still keeping it very fashion-forward. Ruffles are being seen in the skirt of a lot of ball gown and mermaid style dresses.

Helpful Tips

  1. You should order your dress 7 to 9 months before your wedding because most couture dresses take at least 5 months to create.
  2. You should touch base with your seamstress before your dress arrives to see what their schedule looks like. Typically you should start your dress fitting 8 weeks prior to your wedding.
  3. Think about who you are bringing with you! We recommend bringing no more than 4 guests with you to try on dresses.

Note: Due to Covid-19 know that veils are running behind! Also, check-in with the dress shop to see how many guests you are allowed to bring with you.
