The end of the year brings with it projections, trends and runways full of inspiring bridal fashions and new arrivals that we'll see in the upcoming year.  

Designers and fashion power houses like Monique Lhuillier, Anne Barge, Marchesa and Watters have already laid the path to the altar for the best looks for the year 2020. These trends not only encompass wedding dresses, but also hairstyles, accessories and makeup for soon-to-be brides.

Here are the top three trends that'll make you shine on your big day.


Bridal makeup: Pink Eyelids and Purple Pouts

The natural, dewy look suits most brides, and in 2020, we'll see many wearing a delicate pink tone for eyeshadow -  ideal for a blushing bride. This soft, sweet pink will enhance your eye color and show up nicely in your photography. But, really - purple lips?

Yes! Although it may sound bold, purple lip color was a recurring theme on the Bridal Fashion Week runways from the most exclusive wedding brands and it looks sensational. If you get in your dress and realize your natural look needs a little something extra, dare to leave behind the conventional neutral colors and opt for this for a shade of purple for a subtle, shiny wash of color.


Bridal Hairstyles: Braided Crowns

What will we see for hairstyles? A crown of braids, fit for a princess. Braided hairstyles are versatile and can give both a sophisticated as well as a casual look for brides, perfect for beach weddings.

In 2020, a plaited look will climb to the top of the bridal trends. If your hair is a medium to long length, ask your stylist to braid a crown for your big day. It's a comfortable and classic style present your most gorgeous self and will also stay beautifully styled as you dance the night away.


Hair Accessories: Large Headbands, Bows and Ribbons

If braided crowns are not part of your personal style, you may opt for a trending hair accessory. 2020 will be come with large headbands inlaid with pearls and crystals or, if you prefer a less flashy accessory, but just as romantic, ribbons and bows are also trending for brides.


2020 Bridal Jewelry Trends: Pearls
