Springtime is the right time… to order your fall wedding dress, of course! Did you know that, according to the 2019 Wedding Wire Report, October 19 is the most popular day to get married? If your big day falls in the mid-October ballpark, you can still make the current Anomalie cutoff for ordering your gown (we require at least 8 months before your event date to create your custom gown). Still drafting up the final details of your dress? Here’s our trend checklist to help take your design off the ground and into production!

Scroll down to get the scoop on Fall 2019 wedding dress trends!

Mock Neckline (or High Collar)

A high collar is both elegant and practical for the crisp fall weather. We love a romantic lace mock-neck that can be applied to a skin-toned illusion tulle for extra depth. Whether you want to partner this with streamlined long sleeves or mod-inspired short sleeves, it’s up to you!

Daring Cutouts

Want to show a little skin without freezing to death? Cutouts are the answer. Think side, underarm, or midriff cutouts to give you a bandeau effect. Want the trendy look without the baring of skin? Consider a train cutout with a lace panel!

Melissa opted for a train cutout with a lace panel for extra romantic points.

Modern Racerback

Our fashion-forward brides are quickly getting behind this trend. The unexpected back detail serves you oomph and sophistication (and it adds a little something extra to those walking-into-the-sunset-with-your-beau pictures). Add a keyhole to the racerback for extra flair!

Exposed Corsets

Yep, exposed corsets are still going strong! But the traditional bustier corset isn’t the only way to go. You can don an exposed bodice with any type of sleeve—including sheer long sleeves to keep with the skin-flaunting illusion.

Tiered Skirts

Cake, lasagna, Stranger Things… All good things come in layers, are we right? A tiered skirt is the perfect way to anchor your look if you’re going after a dynamic effect. The best part? You can apply layers to any (and we mean any) dress silhouette.

Sheer Long Sleeves

Just like the high collar, sheer long sleeves are a convenient trend that lends glamour without sacrificing warmth—think skin-toned illusion tulle with floral lace appliqués. Lace not really your thing? No problem! You can still get the sheer long-sleeved look sans appliqués.

Fabric Trend: Sparkle Tulle

Craving to glow in festive shimmer, but hoping to take it easy on the budget? Sparkle tulle is a great, affordable alternative to hand beading and it comes in an array of colors! From a single layer of glitter tulle on your gown to a sequined bodice, to a glistening cape, the world is your (sparkly) oyster.

Accessory Trend: Capes

… And speaking of capes. The benefit of going custom is that you get to design a custom cape that matches your dress (think fabric, lace and color). Not only does this accessory provide two looks in one, but it will keep you warm and it’s a Wonder-Woman kind of chic—could we really ask for more?
