1. Square necklines
Thanks to shows like “Bridgerton” rising in popularity, so are square necklines!
2. Low backs
We have so many brides lately who are coming in looking for a dress with a very low back. Like, we’re talking as low as possible. This is very trendy and a great way for you to show some skin if that’s something that you’re looking for!
A big statement bow is trendy again, and better than ever!
4. Statement sleeves
Different variations of sleeves are trendy right now! This includes off-the-shoulder sleeves, puffy sleeves, flutter sleeves, and more.
5. Clean & sleek
Many brides are looking for a dress that is clean & sleek. This typically means that there is little to no lace or sparkle, and the dress is typically made of a fabric-like Mikado!
6. Exposed boning
Again, we can thank shows like “Bridgerton” for this trend! More structured bodices with exposed boning are becoming all the rage nowadays.
7. Transitional pieces
Transitional pieces give brides the chance to create a second (or third!) look for the reception without having to buy a second dress. These can include removable sleeves, overskirts, capes, and more!
8. Statement accessories
A lot of brides are choosing to wear a more simple gown on their wedding day, and then going all-out with a statement veil or headpiece.
9. High slits
High slits are very trendy right now, and are the perfect way to add a sexy element to your dress!
Ruffles have been in style for quite a few years now, but they are trendier than ever before right now! We most often see them in “tiered” ballgown-style gowns.
