Bridal Fashion Week has returned and while it never really left, this fall marked the first time since October of 2019 that designers were back to show their styles in-person (and virtually). This hybrid model allowed for an up-close viewing of all the gorgeous details and we can’t wait to show you some of the fashion trends you can expect to see as the wedding boom continues into 2022.


Bridgerton-Inspired Corsets

If you spent time during quarantine keeping up with the royals (of Bridgerton that is), then you weren’t the only one. The popular corset-style dresses worn throughout the era are a favorite among designers this season. A detailed, lace-up or beaded corset may just be the perfect style if you’re a hopeless romantic like Lady Whistledown. Spotted at Inbal Dror, Galia Lahav, Houghton, J'Aton Couture


Boudoir Bodice

Did being cooped up in sweats all year make you miss showing off your sexy side? Opt for a boudoir-inspired style with a dress that shows off your bodice. The prominent boning lets a bit of skin show through for a sleek and sultry look. Afterall, isn’t it time we started getting dressed up again? Spotted at Lihi Hod, Andrew Kwon, PatBo

Square Necklines

Perfect for showing off a statement necklace without having a lowcut look, square necklines are all the rage and pair perfectly with both long sleeve and sleeveless styles. The only question is, what necklace will you pair with it? Spotted at Jenny Yoo, Kosibah, Wtoo, Caroline Castigliano, Anne Barge


Bohemian Is Back

The increasing trend of backyard weddings and outdoor celebrations over the last year-and-a-half has led to a resurge in the flowing, ethereal style of boho wedding dresses. For a nature-inspired look, opt for one of the many gowns that includes botanical appliques or hidden floral sequence. Spotted at Grace Loves Lace, Lihi Hod, Wtoo

Black is the New Black

If you’ve always dreamed of wearing something other than white for your wedding, now’s the time, especially if you’re celebrating s second wedding after doing the white-wedding look for a COVID nuptial. Black wedding styles are sleek, sophisticated and look elegant in suit, gown or cocktail dress fashion. Spotted at Peter Langner, David's Bridal, Dany Tabet, Scorcesa

Over-the-Top Tulle

On the hunt for an extra voluminous wedding look? Layers and layers of tulle that create a puff-like cloud are trending which begs the question, can you ever have too much tulle? We don’t think so. Spotted at Amsale, Viktor & Rolf, Kaviar Gauche

Halter tops are the ideal cut for soonlyweds seeking a sleeveless top with the option of a modest neckline. If full coverage isn’t your favorite, look for a halter style with a keyhole cut. Spotted at Nadia Manjarrez, Theia, Retrofête, PatBo
