The 11 Best Bridal Looks From the Fall 2019 Collections - Fashionista

After (literally, at times) running from show to presentation — uptown, downtown, across and back again — together, Brides magazine and Fashionista really bonded during the packed Fall 2019 bridal season. That meant Executive Director Lisa Gooderand I could regularly check in, gush, discuss and call dibs on our favorite wedding looks in real time.

With Meghan Markle and Chiara Ferragni wedding style inspo driving the trends for Fall 2019 (and so many convertible and interchangeable dresses, gowns, layering and trouser options to sort through), choosing favorites was a more daunting task than usual. But hey, who can complain about looking at beautiful, dreamy pieces that signify hope and happiness? Ahead, Brides and Fashionista choose 11 stand-out looks from the Fall 2019 bridal season.

Spoiler: I'm super into the proliferation of the make-your-own-wedding-look(s) situation with interchangeable separates this season. Laure de Sagazan's Parisian chic goes après ski wedding especially warmed my heart. Plus, you could definitely re-style the prettiest lace-trimmed and puff-shouldered top and soft tulle-layered maxi-skirt in so many different ways for occasions to come. — Fawnia Soo Hoo

Monique Lhuillier

This is such a romantic princess dress. I loved that designers moved away from pastels a bit this season and embraced bold jewel tones. This Monique Lhuillier dress felt feminine, flirty and dramatic, yet still unexpected. — Lisa Gooder

Cushnie

Carly Cushnie's debut bridal collection under the Cushnie label was everything we thought it would be and more. The gowns, jumpsuits and separates stayed consistent with her signature minimalist, body-celebrating aesthetic — especially this sculpturally stunning caped mermaid silhouette. — Fawnia Soo Hoo

Ines di Santo

We saw so many Edwardian-inspired sleeves this season, and I loved Ines Di Santo's romantic take on it. The sleeves gave this dress an ethereal vibe and I can see this trend sticking around. — Lisa Gooder

At the Elizabeth Fillmore bridal week press party, the entire room went quiet and started snapping pics when the model walked out in this ribboned lace corset and cigarette pants set topped with a glorious floral embroidered cathedral tulle cape. Of course, you can wear as you like, with a matching floor-length lace skirt or perhaps a David-Bowie-inspired suit jacket. Again, Fall 2019 is all about making your own wedding 'fit. — Fawnia Soo Hoo

Watters

Watters really nailed it this season. There's something for everyone, at an affordable price point. We see this line really going places. This dress feels like a clean and classic Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy from the front, but from the back it's got a beautiful lace detail and train — which is really what your guests see when you walk down the aisle.  — Lisa Gooder

Alexandra Grecco

Alexandra Grecco's size-inclusive garden party presentation (top photo) was a great way to kick off a bridal week early Saturday, especially with this off-white, flutter sleeved A-line gown. The glimmering floral appliqué and hand-embroidery — made in New York's Garment District — also blooms around onto the illusion back. — Fawnia Soo Hoo

Atelier Pronovias

Crop tops were back with a vengeance. For the bride who's bold enough to pull this off, Pronovias's take on separates has an almost Meghan Markle feel with its off-the-shoulder neckline. — Lisa Gooder

Halfpenny London

After falling in love with handful of interchangeable styles by Halfpenny London at The One Bridal, in Brooklyn's new wedding corridor, I couldn't wait to see more. Honestly, it was hard to choose between all the combinations of streamlined dresses, removable Chiara-style tulle skirts and ethereally cool layers. But this pretty pleated crop top over an easy bias-cut slip dress almost made me late for my next appointment. (P.S.: The top has a matching ballgown skirt, too.) — Fawnia Soo Hoo

Rime Arodaky

I loved the ballerina vibes at Rime Arodaky. The whole collection took my breath away, but this tiered tulle mini was show-stopping. I love to think of a bride having so much fun in this dress at the reception, tearing up the dance floor. — Lisa Gooder

Savannah Miller

This had such a Stevie Nicks vibe to it. The coolest part is the sheer train that goes over the pants detaches. It's such a wearable option for brides looking for something different. — Lisa Gooder

Hey, I'm obsessed with all the bridal separates for next season and pantsuits, always. The cropped jacket updates the traditional tuxedo silhouette and the flowing train brings that bridal vibe. — Fawnia Soo Hoo
