A must-know name in bridal, Maggie Sottero Designs along with its three distinctive designer labels — the timelessly romantic Maggie Sottero, the fashion-forward Sottero and Midgley and the affordable Rebecca Ingram line — cover all the bases when it comes to stunning wedding dress. So whether you’re a classic bride or someone who loves vintage wedding dresses, you’re sure to find a gown that fits your unique style.
Simple Wedding Dresses
Meghan Markle’s royal wedding ensemble cemented the timelessness of a simple wedding dress. But don’t let the term “simple” mislead you. While this style features unfussy detailing, the gowns are hardly basic or boring!
Maggie Sottero Designs’ simple wedding gowns feature clean, minimalist lines elevated by a striking detail, and range from ultra glamorous to super romantic. I think we can agree that each one is just as breathtaking as the next.
Boho Bride Trends
Few things can convey a free-spirited style more beautifully than a bohemian wedding dress. Just as we thought we've reached peak boho chic, Maggie Sottero Designs introduces a fresh take on this well-loved style. The 2019 boho wedding dress trend tends towards lighter but no less romantic designs, pairing a soft, minimally-embellished skirt in tulle or chiffon with a bodice adorned with intricate lace motifs. This destination wedding-friendly trend is also perfect for warm weather affairs.

The Princess Trend
If you've always wanted to feel like royalty on your wedding day, you'll love this bridal trend: princess wedding dresses. A ball gown is a classic choice for brides planning a fairytale wedding but modern princess styles are not just limited to voluminous silhouettes. Check out the intricately beaded mermaid dress or delicate A-line gown below for some major inspiration...
Black is Back
Even though it's no longer the domain of edgy brides, it may take some convincing for a bride to wear a black wedding dress. But if you’re willing to buck tradition for something different (and totally YOU!), the result is a look that's both spectacular AND unforgettable.
Zander by Sottero and Midgley is a striking choice for unconventional brides. For more traditional brides, this beauty is available in ivory as well.
The Most Popular Wedding Dress for 2019...
We've looked into our crystal ball and have the answer. The "it" gown of 2019 is the Tuscany Lynette wedding dress by Maggie Sottero. One of the most popular Maggie Sottero wedding dresses, this incredible lace gown features a sophisticated sheath silhouette and is an all-around statement maker with its plunging sweetheart neckline and sheer back.
Another very popular wedding dress with a plunging neckline is Maggie Sottero's ABBIE, an exquisite sleeveless lace wedding dress with a fabulous illusion back, and ABBIE LYNETTE, a version with a covered back. This design is lined with shapewear for a figure-flattering fit.
