1. Floral Bridal Gowns
The botanical-inspired bridal gown trend is positively breathtaking, and there is a version for every bridal aesthetic. Whether romantic, playful and dainty or bold, whimsical, and colorful, floral wedding dresses are one of the most beautiful trends you can expect to see coming down the aisle in 2022. Revel in the beauty of cascading botanical prints, and delicate floral details and appliqués. This trend symbolizes youthfulness, romance, optimism and joy, what a perfect statement to make on your special day! Note: Flowers aren’t just for wedding dresses, enjoy a floral veil or bridesmaids dresses to bring a botanical flair to your wedding aesthetic!
2. Puff Sleeves
Puff sleeves are back, and we couldn’t be happier! Note: Although inspired by decades past, there are not quite the puff sleeves of the 80s. Think tasteful, romantic, voluminous, and versatile, a new take on an old trend. Whether you’re going for a glam statement or a modern-day Bridgeton-inspired look, regency-era, figure-flattering puff sleeves are reigning supreme in 2022.
3. High Slits
Can we say va va va voom! Whether on a figure-skimming bridal silhouette or a ballgown, the high slit adds a sexy, romantic, and on-trend touch to your bridal look. Put your best foot forward and show a little skin with this sizzling wedding dress trend!
4. Wedding Dresses with Cut-Outs
Open-back gowns, thigh-high slits, keyhole necklines, peekaboo sides, plunging necklines, waist cutouts — we are loving the possibilities with this trend! Strategically placed cut-outs are the perfect way to subtly incorporate sex appeal. Tasteful yet sultry, cut-outs also provide a unique opportunity for detailing like sheer overlays and beadwork. The best part is there is something for every bride, from the modest and demure to the daring and dramatic, and everything in between.
5. Square Necklines
Although often overlooked within bridal fashion, the neckline of a wedding dress is one of the most important features. While strapless and sweetheart necklines have been all the rage in recent years, new bridal collections are seeing the return to square necklines. Perhaps Bridgerton-inspired, this minimalist style is a throwback to the Renaissance and Regency eras. Flattering on the collarbone, decollete, and shoulders, square beck wedding dresses are absolutely perfect for the classic bride.
