What Wedding Dress Styles Are In This Year
Every year we are always excited to see what bridal designers have in store for their collections, and 2022 is no exception! From tried-and-true details that have gone from trends to bridal classics to the latest and greatest fabrics, embellishments, and details, we are always on the lookout for jaw-dropping gowns, and Ukrainian designers have captured our hearts! Read below for the top 2022 bridal trends featuring Ukrainian designers and to see some incredible wedding dresses.
The square neckline has been making its way into bridal fashion for a while, and now this silhouette is beyond popular! Both demure and elegant, this neckline is perfect for the bride who wants something a little different than a deep V-neckline or sweetheart style. When paired with a billowing sleeve like those on the Lana dress by Katy Corso, this style reminds us of the romantic dresses on Bridgerton! For a modern take, we love the Ironiama gown by Ida Torez which is a super classic gown with a touch of modernity due to the sheer cut-out under the bust. The Alysee gown by Daria Karlozi is similar in that it is classic yet modern with sheer side cut-outs at the sides. For the ultimate statement, opt for a square neckline and back like the First Love gown by Daria Karlozi.
Mermaid dresses are a staple in bridal fashion for the brides who love a bit of red carpet glamour and like to show off their shapes, but now they are even more popular than before! From sleek and simple to embellished, there are so many iterations of this silhouette. The Sarastar dress by Daria Karlozi is perfect for the fashion-forward bride with its off-the-shoulder long Chantilly lace sleeves and dimensional flowers, which are both bridal and on-trend. For a more modern take, check out the Samara dress by Oliver Martino, which features an intricate sequin pattern that is super unique and will ensure that you sparkle all night long.
There is nothing that says “bride” more than a gown fit for a princess! That is why we are so excited about seeing this 2022 wedding dress trend making its way back into the bridal fashion world. Characterized by a voluminous skirt, these gowns bring some drama to your look and are perfect for the bride with a regal bridal style. For a super classic bridal look, opt for a gown with long sleeves, which add an elegant and refined touch. We especially love the shimmering Frontera gown with its high embellished neckline and the Linares gown with its dramatic puffy sleeves, both by Armonia. For the ultimate wow moment, opt for a gown with a long dramatic train like the Melanie gown by Oliver Martino, which is sure to make for an unforgettable entrance and exit!
Asymmetry is big when it comes to 2022 bridal trends! From asymmetrical necklines and sleeves to slits and more, there are so many ways to incorporate this trend. For the ultimate asymmetrical look, try a daring gown like Caleo by Ida Torez, which features a glitter mini skirt and strapless corset bodice on one side, and a long skirt and sleeve with a net pattern lace on the other. For a more subtle look, a gown like Leira by Armonia will do the trick. This dress has one strap on the shoulder and one off the shoulder, with a dramatic slit in the skirt.
A deep V-neckline is the perfect detail if you want to add a touch of sexiness to your wedding day look. In addition, a plunging neckline draws the eye in a vertical line, making you appear taller! Classic A-line gowns with deep V-necklines like the Seyra gown by Katy Corso and the Chesella gown by Daria Karlozi are the ultimate mix of modern and timeless. For a more red-carpet-ready look, a fitted gown will do the trick. We love the Delighta gown by Ida Torez and the Grosa gown by Armonia, which also features a detachable cape for an extra dose of the wow factor!
Minimalist wedding dresses are all the rage, but just because they have little to no embellishments, doesn’t mean they are boring. In fact, you can make a major statement in a minimalist gown! Go ultra-simple with a style like Neve by Oliver Martino, Caroline by Katy Corso, or Khalilah by Daria Karlozi, or add some extra oomph to your look with details like statement sleeves, touches of lace, big ball gown skirts, or even a high slit. Cordiala by Ida Torez and Constantina and Segura by Armonia have just the right touch of added detail.
A corset bodice adds not only structure, but a touch of romanticism and sexiness to your wedding day look! For a romantic vibe, try a gown with a corset bodice and off-the-shoulder puffy sleeves like the Oria gown by Armonia. You can also go for a more covered look by opting for a corset that is mostly covered with lace appliqués like the Aurora gown by Oliver Martino. And for a very modern, sexy, and fashion-forward look, try an unembellished corset like the bodice of the Sympathia gown by Ida Torez.
Looking to wow your guests with an amazing entrance and exit? A beautiful back will do the trick! From daring low V-backs to straps to lace appliqués and classic buttons, there are so many iterations of this trend. A mix of lace and buttons like the backs of the Holie gown by Katy Corso is super classic, but you can also go for a sheer illusion back with buttons like the Tatifa gown by Armonia for a modern look. For a sexy look, opt for a low, open V-back like the Excitatia gown by Ida Torez, or go for something unique by wearing a gown with a modern keyhole back like the Donna gown by Oliver Martino. The high front neckline is perfectly balanced by the open back.
