While Summer weddings may still be very much at risk this summer,  we’re hoping Fall nuptials can be celebrated again surrounded by joyous family and friends gatherings.  We look to the future with optimism, just like BHLDN… In that spirit, the brand just launched their 2020 Fall Collection and once again vegan brides have plenty to choose from their styles. Have a peek!

 

HERA GOWN

A sweeping train, scattered sequins, and wispy layers of silvery tulle combine to create this dazzling ballgown. The sultry neckline juxtaposes a soft velvet waistband for an unforgettable look.

 

SAMARIE GOWN

Universally flattering and utterly romantic, this tulle gown is accented by organically-placed lace applique. Wear with the removable off-the-shoulder straps for an extra romantic detail, or without for a polished strapless silhouette.

 

EVEREST GOWN

Densely hand-beaded in shimmering ivory, this Art Deco-inspired column gown features a plunging illusion neckline with a modern notched silhouette. A high back completes the look.

 

HEMINGWAY GOWN

Hand-beaded with a mix of pearls, crystals and sequins, this ballgown’s fitted bodice features a plunging neckline and delicate straps. A full organza skirt completes its striking silhouette.

 

SUTTON GOWN

This minimalist satin slip gown is designed for modern brides. Thoughtful details include a soft cowl neckline, empire bust seam, bias-cut skirt, and a back flounce seam that cascades into a flowing train.

 

NIKOLA GOWN

Floral lace is delicately cut and placed to create dimensional detail on this beautifully bohemian gown. A fitted silhouette and classic v-neckline complete the look.

 

KARINA GOWN

Knit crepe with a hint of stretch makes it easy to dance all night in this sleek, long-sleeved gown. A plunging notched v-neckline and daring keyhole back lend the look a sultry edge.

 

BRANNOX GOWN

This clean column gown is made from stretch crepe with a modern, deep v-neckline. Transform its sleek silhouette with the detachable Watteau train, made from illusion tulle and scattered with shimmering pearls.

 

VEDA GOWN

This elegantly fitted gown features an intricate lace bodice with a plunging neckline and long, sheer sleeves. A tailored crepe skirt lends a modern edge, while scalloped lace trim and a button back provide charming detail.

 

ULA GOWN

Elegantly fitted, this modern gown is made from pieced lace with a plunging illusion neckline and sweep train featuring scalloped details. Off-the-shoulder sleeves create a romantic silhouette, while pearl buttons on the sheer back provide an elevated finishing touch.

 

You can view and pre-order from the 18 looks that complete the Fall Collection online. Please note: the only non-vegan gown in BHLDN 2020 Fall Collection is the Catherine Deane Kellyn Gown – not shown in our gallery – as it contains silk. While BHLDN is soon reopening selected stores (find the status of the store near you here)  you can also schedule a virtual styling appointment online.
