Did you recently get engaged and are starting the wedding planning process? Congratulations! If you are already thinking about what you’re going to wear down the aisle, Milla Nova has just what you need in their new “It Begins” bridal collection! From sophisticated embellishments to dramatic details, this collection features all the must-have trends for 2022 and a variety of dresses to celebrate the individuality and unique style of every bride. Keep reading for our favorite 2022 wedding dress trends and to see some fabulous gowns. You may just find the one! 

Asymmetrical Necklines

While we love a classic sweetheart neckline, an asymmetrical neckline adds the perfect twist to any wedding gown and can make even the most simple dresses wow-worthy! When you think asymmetrical, you may picture one strap or sleeve like the chic and simple Zendaya gown. For a unique take on this trend, you can opt for two different styles of straps or asymmetrical draping like the BrielleColette, and Muse gowns. We also love the striking asymmetrical cowl neckline on the Podolina gown for a fashion-forward look.  

Sculptural Draping

This season is all about the details, and draping is no exception! It instantly makes any gown elegant and artful and is ultra-flattering on any body shape as well! You can achieve a more subtle look by keeping the draping detail in the bodice like the Lima gown or go for an all-over draped look like the Azaria gown, which features a thigh-high slit for some added drama.

Return to Glam

As life and weddings return to normal, glam is coming back! Brides are ready to celebrate their love in big ways, and that includes a glamourous statement gown. From ornate details to full skirts and long trains, there is a bevy of details that come together to make these dresses spectacular! For a fitted red-carpet look, check out the Adamma gown, which features beautiful lace, beading, a plunging neckline, and a low back for the wow factor! For a romantic take on glam, the Kvita gown is a stunning choice with its 3D flowers (a major trend!), beading, short statement sleeves, and a slit for just a touch of sexiness.


Bridal styles we can expect to see this year will be nothing short of show-stopping, unforgettable, and timeless. Specifically, individuality and personal taste will really set 2022 wedding dress trends apart from those in past years.

Square Neckline

Square necklines have been trending in recent years, and they are here to stay! Bonus: This detail works well on almost any style of dress. On a simple, minimalistic gown, like Levi, the lines of a square neckline add to the modern and clean look. This neckline also pairs well with more romantic styles like the Gabi gown, where it adds a touch of regal sophistication.


Mini dresses started trending as more and more brides decided to have minimonies and micro-weddings, but now they are here to stay! Whether you plan to elope and want a no-fuss yet fabulous look, you want a second look, or you are searching for the perfect bridal outfit for a shower or a rehearsal dinner, a mini dress is a great choice. For a major impact, opt for styles with dramatic sleeves like Zori, or choose a fashion-forward style like the Luv dress, which features dot tulle fabric, a deep V-neckline, puffy sleeves, an open back, and a fun princess skirt. For the sophisticated bride, the Honey dress is a perfect choice. We love the open back accented with a chic bow! 

Architectural Details 

A major trend this year is choosing a gown with minimal embellishments and adding the wow factor and a touch of sophistication with architectural details. Think structured necklines, crisp pleating, and unique folds. We love the Amara gown with its stunning seams and sculptural neckline accented with feathers. Jamella is also a beautiful choice with its structured ruffle-accented neckline and peplum, not to mention that dramatic slit!

Another top bridal trend this season is the corset, which adds structure and a flattering fit to any gown! Corsets can be edgy or romantic depending on the style and fabrics used. For a vintage glam look, we love the scoop neckline and pearl embellishments on the corset of the Vitalia gown. For a romantic take on a corset, try a style with tulle draping like the Margarita gown, which has lace and beading for added detail. And for a classic corset bodice, we love Wikolette. You can really appreciate the structure of the corset, which is adorned with beaded appliqués and accented with a sweet tulle bow at the waistline. 

High Slits 

A slit instantly adds that red-carpet glamour and a touch of sexiness to any gown! This style is especially great if you like to dance the night away or want to show off an amazing pair of shoes. For a sophisticated look that will wow, opt for an otherwise minimalistic or structured gown with a slit like the Zosia or Bellini gowns. If you want a more romantic bridal look that is ethereal yet a little bit sexy, a slit adds that perfect sultry touch to a ball gown or A-line with a tulle skirt. Check out the GloriaCharly, and Petra gowns!
