Let’s talk about finding your perfect dress in 2020

By Anna Lombardos

Finding that perfect wedding gown always required equal doses of research, imagination, and fun. So let’s talk about finding your perfect dress in 2020, when everything, from fashion week to wedding dates, has shifted. The good news is: when it comes to weddings, there’s always space for excitement, optimism, and hope once dreams stay anchored in a steadfast conviction that love never fails.

Were you thinking of a shimmery sheath, a Cinderella-style ball gown, an ornate corset for your special day? Do you like straight lines, multi-layered skirts, or mermaid gowns? Focus on the details, the appliques, the pearls, beads, and crystals. Do you see yourself in a long veil, a sheer cape? The options are endless. How about choosing two dresses? Navigating the new landscape means discovering newfound freedom and flexibility to personalize wedding dreams. A resurgence of the two-dress trend can inject some fun into your wedding plans. It’s the perfect solution for those opting for a virtual wedding while keeping the big celebration for next year. With a “less is more” attitude, brides can wear an elegant sheath dress, a flirty mini, and or classy pantsuits for an intimate affair or elopement and save a traditional princess-style gown for the larger reception.

As far back as the 1930s, brides have chosen to change dress at some point during the night. At the time, a “going away dress” was worn toward the end of the reception as the couple prepared to set off for their honeymoon. Later, a cocktail or after-party dress allowed the bride to change into another gown during cocktails and dance the night away in a different look. This year many such options are available, and appointments are offered online or in-store. The important thing is to make special memories, and perhaps two dresses will be just the thing to represent 2020.
