Dimensional Flowers & Flower Motifs
Dimensional flowers and flower motifs have been trending in bridal fashion for quite a few years, and they aren’t going anywhere! From delicate floral laces and embellishments (see the Charm and Grandeour gowns) to bolder and bigger-than-life dimensional flowers, you can’t go wrong when incorporating this trend into your wedding day look. We especially love the Deborah and Renata gowns with their feminine off-the-shoulder necklines embellished with voluminous flowers for two unforgettable wedding day looks.
Another statement-making embellishment is ruffles! Whether accenting a neckline or adorning an entire skirt, ruffles add beautiful texture and dimension to a wedding dress. You can opt for a gown with smaller ruffles or beautiful billowing folds that move with you as you twirl and dance the night away. The Triumph gown brings the wow factor with a lush multi-tiered skirt full of ombre ruffles in shades of coral. Did we mention that color is also one of the major 2023 wedding dress trends?
2023 Wedding Dress Trends
If you’re a bride who wants a look that is a little sexier, cutouts may be the bridal trend for you! Cutouts are a versatile detail done in a variety of ways. Side cutouts are more subtle, while a cutout in the front of the bodice like that of the Shininess gown is more daring. For added detail, opt for cutouts with a layer of lace, which provides a little more coverage as well.
There is something so demure and elegant about off-the-shoulder straps and sleeves! Whichever you choose, you can’t go wrong with this timeless neckline. Billowing bishop sleeves like those on the Magnetism gown are incredibly romantic, while a draped neckline like that of the Bettina gown is reminiscent of a Greek goddess. For a very elegant look, opt for a style with a long lace sleeve that falls just off the tip of the shoulder, like the Albertina gown.
Couples are celebrating their love with big weddings once again, and that means that elaborate gowns are back and better than ever. Think big ball gown skirts, larger-than-life details, long trains, and lavish beading and embroidery! This trend fits so many bridal styles as well. You can go regal with a style like the Crosetta gown, which features a shimmering embellished bodice, dainty boat neckline, long lace sleeves, and a pleated glitter tulle skirt. Or, you can opt for a more modern take on this trend with the One and Only gown, which is made of gorgeous organza and embellished with beaded lace, has a crystal brooch belt, and has a removable bolero with voluminous wing sleeves for a major wow-factor and fashion-forward touch.
If you want to wow your guests during your grand entrance and exit, an open back or a low back with illusion netting is the perfect bridal trend! Criss-cross straps, buttons, or lace appliqués add additional interest to this jaw-dropping detail. We especially love the Sophistication gown, which is elegant in the front and wow-worthy in the back! For a unique take on this look, try a square cut back like that of the Glow Sparkle gown instead of the usual V-shaped silhouette. And of course, an updo is always best to let that low back shine!
If you are a bride who wants only one gown but wishes you could change up your look from ceremony to reception, you’re in luck! Gowns with removable sleeves, boleros, skirts, and capes are all the rage and allow you to easily transform your look throughout the evening. We especially love the Domenica gown, which goes from a bridal look fit for a princess to a red carpet-worthy style with the removal of the overskirt. For even more of a surprise, check out the Perlita gown. Once you remove the voluminous ruffle ball gown skirt, you have a fun mini dress to dance the night away.
Slits have been trending in bridal fashion for a few seasons. They add a touch of sexiness, modernity, and red carpet glam to your bridal look, especially if you opt for a gown with a fuller skirt. We especially love the combination of draping and a dramatic slit for a goddess-like look. (See the Gioconda or Elettra gowns.) And don’t forget to show off a pair of fabulous shoes!
Last but not least, while plunging V-necklines are still popular, we’ve noticed that high necklines have been trending! A high lace neckline instantly adds a touch of sophistication and regal beauty to any wedding dress and is ultra-classic. For a more modern take on this trend, try a style with a cutout like the Susana gown.
