Style and fashion are two different entities, with fashion having a finite lifespan and style being a timeless expression. Fortunately, for this year’s brides, the top bridal trends of 2019 are classic enough to last through the decades without resulting in an “I can’t believe I wore that” moment when looking through wedding albums further down the road. Here’s what designers are currently offering to those on the hunt for the perfect wedding dress.

4) Sheer Seduction
One of the top bridal trends gracing the recent runways is sheer fabrics in the form of lace, tulle, and silk. While a sheer gown may be a bit too daring for some to wear down the aisle, they make for a stunning second look during the wedding reception or afterparty.
