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!

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!

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.
