We aren’t going to lie…it was extremely difficult to narrow down the best wedding dresses for this next installment of our Best of 2020 series! We love all our brides and seeing which dress they’ve chosen for their big day is one of our favorite surprises. In the past year, there have been dozens and dozens of stylish brides featured on Burgh Brides. And while it was hard to choose just a few, there are some we will just never forget! From all-out glam to sweetly classic, the looks are as varied as they are beautiful. If you’re as obsessed with wedding dresses as we are, you’re going to love today’s post! Without any further adieu, here come the (best dressed) brides from 2020!
Charlotte in Lela Rose
Sleek and simple, Charlotte’s Lela Rose wedding dress from Little White Dress Bridal was an easy pick for this Best Of list! From the front, the A-line silhouette featured a chic off-the-shoulder neckline. But when Charlotte turned around…wow! A scoop back, modern bow, and unexpected sleeves really caught the eye. To complete the sophisticated look, this bride opted for custom turquoise drop earrings from Henne Jewelers and a messy bun-inspired low chignon. Effortlessly beautiful!

Stephanie in Stephen Yearick
We are completely switching gears with this next pick! Covered in beading from head to toe, Stephanie wowed in her custom Stephen Yearick wedding dress. From the illusion neckline to the pointed long sleeves to the chapel train, this gown was a show-stopper. Delicate silver and metallic white beads and sequins were woven into an intricate design on the bodice, while the sleeves allowed some skin to show through. A half-up, half-down hair style and a simple earring and this bride’s dazzling style was complete!

Ashely in Enzoani
This next look meets the last two right in the middle. Ashley’s Enzoani wedding dress from Sorelle Bridal Salon is a beautiful mix of feminine detail and clean lines. Spaghetti straps led to a lace bodice which lead to a simple A-line skirt, while a buttoned back and lace-edged train gave this gown a pleasant surprise. A voluminous updo and dangly earrings were just the finishing touches Ashley needed to compliment her girly and glamorous wedding.

Christine in Limor Rosen
While fitted silhouettes seemed to reign supreme, this list just wouldn’t be complete without a ballgown. That’s why Christine’s Limor Rosen wedding dress gets our vote! A modern take on the princess-inspired look, this gown featured an illusion neck, beading, AND lace…the wedding dress trifecta! But our favorite detail had to be the embellished skirt! Made in the airiest of fabrics with a middle slit and eye-catching train, the dress gave Christine the look of an ethereal fairy princess! Just the prettiest!

Jessica in Essense of Australia
Romantic and fabulous all at the same time, Jessica’s Essense of Australia wedding dress from David’s Bridal certainly turned up the va-va-voom factor! Off-the-shoulder chiffon sleeves gave way to a flattering sweetheart neckline and gorgeous lace detail. It was the mermaid skirt that featured layer and layer of ruffles that won our hearts over though. A cathedral length veil, beaded hair piece, and sparkly drop earrings were the perfect accents!

Tori in Badgley Mischka
We’ve never – and we mean NEVER – met a bow we didn’t like and the one on Tori’s Badgley Mischka wedding dress was no exception. This fashion forward style came from Bridal Beginning and was the perfect way to blend runway and bridal fashion. Worn OVER a long-sleeved, beaded illusion lace bodysuit for the ceremony, this dress featured a sweetheart neckline and trumpet style, pleated skirt. The most show-stopping detail however was most definitely the oversized, ultra-feminine bow in the back. YES GIRL.

Megan in Berta
Always bold and a little edgy, a Berta wedding dress is never for the faint of heart bride but Megan absolutely rocked hers. Another Bridal Beginning number, this long-sleeved fitted gown featured a deep-V neckline and an intricate blend of lace and beading. A mix of subtly sexy and romantically modern, this bride’s look was most definitely jaw-dropping in the best of ways. Add a cathedral length veil and smokey eye and you’ve got a recipe for a winning look!
