Short Wedding Dresses

Since last year, short wedding dresses continue to rise hugely in popularity and they’re sure to be one of the top trends of 2022. Plus, since your feet won’t be covered by your gown, it’s the perfect excuse to splurge on your dream shoes.

Bishop Sleeves

A decade ago, Kate Middleton stunned in her long-sleeve wedding dress and ever since, sleeves have been a staple in bridal fashion. They’ll continue to be popular into 2022, but instead take on a new style- voluminous styles. Bishops sleeves are loose on the arm but are fitted at the wrist, the perfect way to make a statement and do something a little different for you bridal wear.

Square Necklines

A trend revival from the 90s, the square neckline will be everywhere in 2022. We love this style as it’s flattering for both large and small busts whilst being super chic no matter the fabric used.

Slip Dresses

Made famous by style icons like Kate Moss and Caroline Bessette-Kennedy in the ’90s, this slinky silhouette is experiencing a bridal fashion revival. A curve-skimming satin number works for more formal nuptials while a breezy style with skinny straps is made for a destination wedding. For a more modest take on this inherently sultry trend, add a transitional piece (more on that below) like a sheer topper or lace capelet for extra coverage.

Ruffled wedding dresses

A perfect style for a fairytale wedding. These ruffles create an incredibly romantic look and will be making a big comeback in 2022.

Minimalistic Wedding Dresses

Due to the COVID Pandemic, weddings have become smaller, more informal and impromptu- the same goes for wedding dresses. Simple styles will be a top trend in 2022, with unembellished designs that are both elegant and modern.

Colourful Wedding Dresses

For 2022, colourful, floral and embellished dresses will be a top wedding dress trend. A nod to the popularity of Netflix show Bridgerton, these garden-inspired styles are perfect for an outdoor wedding. It’s the perfect balance of classic and contemporary.

Two-in-One Looks

2022 is set to the the year for outfits that give you the opportunity for multiple looks. These dresses are perfect if you’re having two weddings, a vow renewal or want to have something you can wear after your wedding day. There will be plenty of ways to embrace this trend, whether it be with removable sleeves, jackets or trains.
