Current Wedding Dress Trends
From casual elegance to Victorian-inspired designs, the current bridal fashion trends of 2022 span it all. We have you covered, draped, ruffled, and tiered with the most popular wedding dress trends and styles of 2022.
Spring 2022 Wedding Trends
When spring is in bloom, so are these wedding gown trends—see what’s popular for weddings in March, April, and May.
Believe it or not, not all brides look for a white dress—and that’s why this trend has been trickling in over the past few years. These non-white trending wedding dresses are leaning into champagnes, blush pinks, muted pastel colors, and florals—perfect for the nontraditional bride getting married in the spring or any bride who wants a unique, romantic look.
Ruffles are in! And they’re not just limited to large ball gowns with tiered layers. Ruffles are making an appearance in all dress styles, like along the flared hems of trumpet-style gowns, ruffled sleeves and shoulders, and more fluttery accents.
3D Floral Appliques
Floral detailing has always been a traditional wedding look, but this modern trend really pops. With 3D florals, the options range from head-to-toe applique to simple bodice accents and everything in between. The dimensional look of the floral applique gives this trend a romantic and contemporary look.
Summer 2022 Wedding Trends
In the summer sun, with all eyes on the bride, you’ll look radiant with these current summer wedding dress trends.
The high-low hemline had its moment in mainstream fashion, and now it’s making its way down the aisle in 2022. With a shorter hem at the front of the dress and a dipping hem to the floor in the back, this fashion-forward, dramatic trend is perfect for showing off your special wedding day shoes in show-stopping style.
High, halter-style necklines are an up-and-coming trend for wedding dresses. This style has been popular with modern and minimalist brides looking for simple, sleek gowns. But with this trending look gaining momentum, we’re starting to see halter necklines everywhere, including beaded illusion necklines, glamorous high-neck ballgowns, lace-detailed halters on mermaid dresses, and more.
Fall 2022 Wedding Trends
Fall in love with these popular wedding dress trends for brides tying the knot in autumn.
When you think of separates, it’s hard not to think of prom dresses and more youthful looks. But the separates wedding dress trend of 2022 will change your mind. This versatile look is stepping up its game with more sophisticated and whimsical styles. So, whether you’re a boho bride, a modern bride, or a bride who’s looking to create a distinct look, separates let you curate a unique wedding day style that’s all your own.
Square necklines are flattering on all brides—so it should be no surprise they’ll be one of the most popular bridal styles this fall. The square neckline shows off the collarbone and flattering but modest decolletage. Not only does this neckline suit most brides, but it also suits all dress styles—lending itself well to glam, modern, boho, and minimalistic looks.
Winter 2022-2023 Wedding Trends
Planning to walk down the aisle in winter? Here’s what’s trending for winter brides.
Corset bodices are back—but with a modern twist. Corset wedding gowns were more traditional in the past, with strong boning and intricate lace details generally reserved for ball gowns and A-line dresses. In 2022, the corset trend pays homage to the traditional with a chic update, including exposed boning, cutouts, and sheer panels—across all types of dress shapes and styles.
Balloon or puff sleeves
Puff sleeves are hot right now because of how dynamic the look is. Puffy sleeves up through the shoulder can help you feel like a Disney princess arriving at the ball. But, if that’s not your scene, try a more muted, billowing sleeve with sheer, flowy fabrics for a romantic, Victorian-inspired look.
When to buy a wedding dress
For the best bridal dress shopping experience, you should start shopping 10–11 months out from your wedding and buy your wedding dress eight months before your date.
