These wedding trends bring a few surprises thrown in with classic bridalwear designs that you’ll love. The main trend from last year however, is that the rule book is still out of the window and brides are wearing whatever they please on their wedding day.
For the bride who wants to show a hint of what’s underneath without revealing all. You don’t have to go sheer all over either, many designers are incorporating sheer bodices into wedding gowns for a nod to the sheer trend.
We touched on this trend last year but this year it’s really come into its own. Designers are opting for the visible corset look to show off the detailing behind the bodice and create a visually striking cinched bridal look.
Inspired by royalty, it seems designers are playing around with necklines in 2022 and beyond. With lace detailed mock necks gracing many bridal gowns. Perfect for the bride who wants to exude royal elegance.
With the oversized bow still a hugely popular choice, mini bows are now trying to take over this trend. We’re seeing mini bows adorning the back of the wedding gown to create a pretty feature.
Statement Sleeves are here to stay, with puff sleeves a particular favourite. Over the top bridalwear is in and this sentiment definitely extends to the sleeves. Bridal Designers are offering detachable sleeves, so brides have a day-to-night look.
For brides wanting to show a little skin and add some drama to their wedding gown, a thigh slit is a great option. This red-carpet aesthetic has brides wanting a piece of the action with the chance to show off their heels too!
They create drama and are a total contrast to the large puff sleeve gowns. Asymmetric one shoulder necklines add a daring element and a total departure from the traditional soft wedding gown aesthetic.
Stand back soft blush bridalwear, this year it’s all about the blue! Ronald Joyce and other designers are using blue hues within their gowns to create a sultry blue toned wedding look. Brides are foregoing typical ivory-coloured gowns in favour of a more modern colour, which can also fit in with their wedding theme.
This trend continues on from last year, with many designers like Ronald Joyce and Maggie Sottero using coloured bridal gown backdrops featuring 3d floral designs. Floral wedding gowns make a statement whilst creating a soft, ethereal wedding day look.
Rise of mini dresses
Thanks to celebs like Kourtney Kardashian, the mini wedding dress is officially on the up. With many brides opting for minimal fuss with a more understated bridal look, the mini dress style is a real winner. Some brides are looking more to comfort rather than a big lavish gown, thus moving away from tradition.
