6. Ruffles & Tiers
Unapologetically bold, ruffles and tiers make a serious fashion statement down the aisle. For the bride desiring their princess moment, this trend is EVERYTHING! Go classic Cinderella or Bridgerton-inspired with cascading fairy tale-esque tiers, ethereal chiffon or tulle, voluminous skirts, and other dramatic yet romantic details.
7. Corset Wedding Dresses
Corset bodices are making a comeback! Corsets and bustiers are one of the hottest trends on runways and wedding aisles alike. This classic structural element has a new look this season — instead of boudoir, think Bridgerton-inspired sophistication. Sultry yet functional, the corset allows brides to enhance their figures while providing an opportunity for such stunning detail as embroidery, cutouts, lace, and other royal-worthy accents.
8. Colors & Prints
If the classic ivories and whites aren’t for you, you’re going to love the 2022 bridal collections! This season designers are embracing colorful fabrics and vivid details, including florals and textures. Joining the ranks of other soft tones like blush and champagne, we’re now seeing shades of lavender, sky blue, and sage green. Feminine and romantic, these gowns are a playful departure from tradition — and are perfect for the bride who loves to skirt the rules and break up the status quo in the most stunning way possible.
9. Transitional Pieces
For the bride desiring a two-in-one-look, transitional pieces are a must! Bridal capes, detachable overskirts, removable sleeves, and the like are forecast to be a lasting trend in the coming years. Not only do they offer the chance to change up your look from ceremony to reception, but these versatile accents provide an opportunity to add an extra bit of flair to your bridal ensemble. Feather or sequin-trimmed capes, dramatic detachable puff sleeves, beaded skirt overlays, removable bows, the possibilities are endless - and we couldn’t love them more if we tried!
10. Mock Neck Wedding Dresses
This demure, feminine neckline offers a beautiful and classic touch to any wedding dress. Whether paired with a sheath, a-line, or ball gown silhouette, the mock neck is regal yet subtly seductive. We love the versatility of this look, which can go from dramatic lace to romantic silk and satin.
