Read our article to find out the biggest wedding dress trends for 2022 2023 you need to know about and the styles to be inspired by, to make the perfect dress for the big day.
From bold details such as puffed sleeves and romantic ruffles, to feminine floral prints and chic new silhouettes, there’s sure to be a look here you’ll love, no matter your bridal style!
Wedding dress with corset
Corset bodies have been a huge trend for 2021, stemming from our love of Bridgerton, and they have made their way onto the bridal runways for the 2022/2023 winter season. Many designers used this structural element, proving that you can take an old style and make it fresh and modern. Corset gowns often embellished with embroidery or delicate highlights are very elegant and refined and are perfect for highlighting shapes.
EDEM in its fall/winter 2022-2023 bridal collection presented a satin corset gown decorated with agate and Swarovski crystals.
Marchesa per Pronovias proposed dresses with sophisticated layered volumes, presenting corset bodices, combined with full and ruffled skirts for a modern bride with a passion for romance.
Carolina Herrera in her Fall 2022 Bridal Collection presented a gown with a corset, floral work and a wide skirt.
Da Ines Di Santo we saw a gorgeous gown with strapless embroidered bodice with ethereal circular A-line skirt.
Split wedding dress
The “two-piece” or “split” wedding dresses (with separate bodice/blazer and skirt/pants) are a new trend that has been going crazy on the bridal catwalks for a few years now.
Sophisticated and contemporary at the same time, split dresses are a viable alternative for the bride who loves to make mix-and-match of materials and colors and does not want to give up comfort and versatility.
Rivini by Rita Vinieris proposed a two-piece in ecological crepe composed of a corset band and wide pants with velvet ribbon back detail and a “broken” suit with draped bubble sleeves and cascading train.
Ines di Santo presented a blazer with draped front paired with satin flared pants and a crepe and satin tuxedo with shawl collar and double-layered peplum jacket to be worn with wide-leg pants.
Kaviar Gauche in the “In Full Bloom” collection made many “broken” dresses combining couture and casual looks. Beautiful a sumptuous two-piece dress (skirt and top) in tulle and silk organza with a structure that resembles a rising flower.
Decidedly romantic is the choice of Willowby that in the 2022 bridal collection proposed a broken dress with a sweetheart top and cotton floral embroidery along the skirt. These refined applications and the antique pink nuance gave a boho chic touch to the dress.
Voluminous wedding dress
In many fall/winter 2022-2023 collections we have seen dresses characterized by large volume gowns embellished with ruffles, applications and workmanship.
For the bride who imagines her wedding day as a magnificent “ball” of which to be the undisputed star, the princess dress with full and voluminous skirt, ruffled hems and layered tulle is the right choice.
Ines di Santo in her Fall 2022 Bridal Couture Collection presented several dresses with a “princess” cut:
an embroidered ball gown with a sweetheart neckline and cathedral train; a soft V-neck, sleeveless gown embellished with an airy, structured skirt; a gown with an embroidered heart-curled bodice, voluminous skirt, three-dimensional floral sleeves and cathedral train.
In the Rosa Clará Couture 2022 collection there was no shortage of princess wedding dresses, classic and traditional, in which crepe bodices matched perfectly with large illusion-effect tulle skirts.
Vera Wang reminded us of medieval princesses by presenting in her Haute Wedding Fall 2022 collection an Italian tulle empire-waist dress with macramé lace appliqués.
Also at Amsale there were beautiful voluminous gowns like a fitted and flared wedding dress with a semi-transparent bodice; long sleeve with 3D beading and silk faille skirt.
High-Neck Halter Wedding Dresses
Meghan Markle brought halter necklines to the public spotlight with her 2018 Stella McCartney wedding gown, and not surprisingly, we have seen this silhouette becoming a major trend.
Whether you’re seeking a straight column, A-line, or mermaid-shaped skirt, a high neckline add a classic touch to any gown and are the perfect choice for the bride who seeks sophistication and elegance. Halter necklines serve as an elegant balance to bare arms, a low open back or a high slit, adding a level of modesty to any bridal look.
Zuhair Murad has designed a winter collection of contemporary wedding dresses that are sparkling with delicate mixes of crystals and gemstones. The mermaid gown with high neck is beautiful.
Viktor&Rolf’s Fall/Winter 2022 bridal collection was a sequence of sculpted and bold ball gowns with crystal-embellished veils and tailored creations. The high-collared style we saw on many models with both fitted and wide skirts.
Ines di Santo used the high neck on a trumpet dress with long puff sleeves and lace illusion on the back and presented it on several accessories such as a long sleeve bolero with wide embroidery and an embroidered cape with hood.
Carolina Herrera in her Fall 2022 Bridal Collection proposed a dress with illusion neckline embellished with floral workings.
Wedding dress with bow
For fall/winter 2022-2023, many gowns decorated with bows have been created by the great designers. From delicate bows at the waist to ornaments, this sweet detail increases the romantic side of any wedding dress.
The Viktor&Rolf brand used bows for the waistline of a jumpsuit wedding dress, for a voluminous princess style dress and as an appliqué on a back side dress. There was no shortage of bows on collars and necklines either.
Sébastien Luke in the winter 2022 collection chose the bow as a decorative element of an ivory ecological crepe dress with a bodice with organza ruffles and a skirt also in organza.
Markarian presented a strapless silk faille mini dress adorned with many small bows.
Scorcesa used a black bow on a white wedding dress with a wide V-neckline; Sareh Nouri made a strapless mikado stretch dress with bow/knot detail on the chest and a strapless mikado A-line dress with pleating detail and bow on the back.
The pastel bride
Blush dresses were big for 2021, and following on the lines of this, in the fall/winter 2022-2023 collections we saw an infusion of colour: gorgeous pastel colours, such as blues, lilacs, pistachio and pale yellows, on luxurious fabrics and textures and vibrant floral patterns are all the rage.
Halfpenny London offered a voluminous watercolor-painted ball gown with detachable sleeves that can also be converted into puffy shapes with pretty ribbons.
In Monique Lhuillier‘s winter 2022 collection bold botanical prints and hydrangeas infused excitement and fun, adding touches of color to the bridal outfit.
In Ines di Santo’s fall 2022 bridal couture collection, we admired a ball gown with a one-shoulder corset, floral sleeve and cathedral train embellished with maxi floral print in shades of pink.
Andrew Kwon proposed dresses in shades of green, yellow and blue, playing with unconventional colors, which refer to nature, on heavenly layers of tulle and organza.
