Bridal Fashion Week Fall 2023

Fall 2023 Bridal Fashion Trends from New York Bridal Fashion Week

Last week, we received a sneak peek at New York Bridal Fashion Week of the wedding fashions that will be dominating the aisles in Fall/Winter 2023, and I'm here to tell you that the future is looking bright. From unique fabrics to transformation dresses with multiple looks-in-one, and gloved accessories (that Bridgerton inspiration is still going strong!), we're loving these trends that are truly allowing soonlyweds to bring their own style to their wedding day.

Unique Fabrics

For their 2023 collections, designers went out-of-the-box with fabrics and, along with the expected tulle and lace, incorporated fabrics such as latex, brocade tulle and nylon organdy into their designs.

Smoky Gray

There wasn't as much color as we've seen in years past, but one color that did stand out was this pretty smoky gray hue in various forms. Madeline Gardner paired it with sultry black in her debut couture collection, Monique Lhuillier created a silvery sequin-embroidered column gown with a coordinating tulle overskirt in smoke, and you can see the foggy California coastal influence that Amsale designer Micha Cho was inspired by for his collection.

Architectural Draping

This trend shows off just how exquisite these designers' craftmanship is, twisting and turning the fabric until it's placed just so. (It took over six hours just to craft the Amsale gown's draping!) | Spotted on: Maticevski, Amsale, Kaviar Gauche


Lots of designers add a touch of whimsy to their designs with feathery details … some a small add-on, others full skirts. | Spotted on Kelly Faetanini, Galia Lahav, Grace Loves Lace

White-Gloved Service

With Bridgerton being such a huge inspiration last season, I was actually expecting to see gloves for Spring 2023, but alas, they have made their arrival. And in a big way. Many designers offered these accessories alongside specific dresses to pair them with. | Spotted on: Dana Harel, Maticevski, Lihi Hod, Monique Lhuillier

Transformative Designs

The removable sleeves and/or overskirt has been around for years, but this year, due to demand for multiple looks-in-one by their clients, designers created add-on pieces that truly transformed the design. Spotted at Dana Harel, Badgley Mischka (photography by Kim-Trang Photography), Viktor & Rolf

The Kardashian Effect

It's no secret that the Kardashians love their tight ruched dresses, and turns out, that looks translates beautifully to bridal! Spotted at Theia, LaPointe, Houghton
