2022 Wedding Gown Trends

What a year 2021 was for weddings! June happened, restrictions were lifted and all postponed weddings were happening almost overnight! There’s no question that over the past two years, weddings have shifted to smaller, more intimate outdoor gatherings however this has only enlightened our brides to wear anything they envision for their special day. Wedding gown trends in ivory, white, floral tones and the Pantone Colours for 2022 (“Very Peri") are bold, powerful and creative. Think of it as traditional with a twist! Designers have been busy designing bridal looks portraying the creative, confidence and spirit of our 2022 brides and predicting visions for your “elopement”, “minimony”, “microwedding” and “sequel wedding”. These trends allow you to create the perfect look for your special day regardless of where it is, who might be attending and your wedding theme or budget!

Bridal fashion runways showcased wedding gowns full of fun, innovative and exciting looks. Classic traditional gowns are now versatile and can be styled differently to enrich your true personal side. Gowns have been designed both full length and short, unstructured and structured, romantic, sexy, formal and informal. Fabrics used in designs are clean, modern, textured, printed, sheer and lacy. Here are some of the top looks you will find while shopping for your bridal fashions this year:

The Second Look

inspires you to be creative and fashion forward. Gown accessories such as detachable sleeves in all lengths, capes in various fabrics, some with pops of colours and textured overskirts can be incorporated into your wedding day look. Removing these accessories after the ceremony gives you the option of walking into the reception married in a completely different look!

Bridal Suits and Separates

are a sleek dress alternative for the bride who does not wish to wear a traditional wedding gown. Not only are they modern and comfortable to wear, they can also be figure flattering and when styled differently can be worn again. Sustainability for the eco-conscious bride!
