With every wedding season comes new trends in wedding attire. While there are some styles that will never go out of fashion, there’s always room for new ones! From alternative colors to reimagining of classic bridal textiles, here are some of our favorite 2022 – 2023 wedding attire trends.
PAINT IT BLACK
Who says bridal clothes always need to be white? Black wedding dresses are having a dramatic moment and we are here for it. For example, take inspiration from celebrities like Christine Quinn (Selling Sunset), Sarah Jessica Parker and Shenae Beech (90201) , who all wore black dresses to their own weddings.
Architectural structures and exposed boning bring corset-inspired looks into the modern age. However, these looks are much less restricting than a traditional corset. So you can still dance the night away freely!
NOT YOUR GRANDMOTHER’S LACE
Lace will never go out of bridal style, and these new lace interpretations are anything but old-fashioned.
LOVE ON YOUR (STATEMENT) SLEEVE
Put a sleeve on it! Statement sleeves might cover more skin, but bring the drama. Not only do these dresses stun on their own, but many of them have removable sleeves – adding a bonus look to your day if you choose to remove them.
THE LONG SHORT OF IT
Despite long gowns reigning as the traditional option, short dresses are having their moment. Whether it’s for the reception, the ceremony itself or a courthouse wedding, go flirty and fun with a mini dress.
SLINKY & SILKY
Take a note from Grecian goddesses and drape yourself in a silky, elevated slip iteration. Both sleek and chic, these slinky gowns are minimal without being boring.
