Every bride-to-be has a vision of the perfect wedding gown. It may be a couture dress custom-designed to a set of specifications for some. Others may want a chic designer look with an affordable price tag. Whatever your dream dress looks like, Viero Bridal has the perfect selection to help you stay on top of the wedding trends for 2022.
Since we have emerged from lockdown, fashion has never been more focused on personal style—particularly when it comes to brides.
Weddings have historically been steeped in tradition, custom, and a long list of style demands (and still are). Now they have married couples-to-be considering what they truly want and how to best express themselves while keeping up with hot wedding trends.
In recent years, many brides have been opting for more varied wedding styles and venues than the traditional tried and true church and hall weddings.
From getting married in a backyard to wearing custom Converse while walking down the aisle, weddings are more suited to the budget and dreams of 2022’s brides. With Viero Bridal, you can find a designer gown that fits your personality and the newest bridal gown fashions.
Whether you plan on sticking with a classic or wearing something that bucks tradition, we’ve curated the top wedding dress trends for 2022 to keep you looking and feeling your best on your wedding day.
Finding Your Dream Wedding Gown
We recommend brides start their search by considering what silhouette they feel best in: ballgown, A-line, sheath, fit and flare? Famous fashions always inspire the top trends, so take a look in magazines and online and see which style you love most. From there, it’s all about the details! Are you looking for something with sleeves? Lace? Beading?
What about color? This season is all about shades of color. If you are looking for something different than ivory or white, try blush pink, champagne, and even greens. If those are the colors that speak to your heart, be sure to look for those details in your gown!
Once you have an idea of what your dream wedding gown looks like, you can incorporate elements of the newest trends in wedding gown design.
Top Wedding Trends for 2022
From the engagement party to the rehearsal dinner, walking down the aisle, reception, dance, and every other gathering in between, our wedding designers have taken on the challenge of creating looks that seem ageless but are still chic and on-trend.
Color and Prints
Wedding gowns with prints and colors are a contemporary trend for the bride who doesn’t want to be part of the ordinary. Blush is a popular choice, followed by ginger and champagne for brides wishing to incorporate color, but now we’re seeing colder tones of sky blue, pistachio, lavender, and dove.
As the popularity of pastel weddings continues to grow, these colors are excellent for spring, summer, and autumn, making them perfect for your wedding! You’ll want to choose shades that will go with your bridesmaids’ gowns.
Prints have traditionally been for casual weddings or avant-garde brides, but for 2022, even a conservative bride may choose to wear prints. After all, they are so popular in fashion and can range from subtle, monochrome brocade to bold botanical and whimsical prints. Prints have always been a favorite for the bride who wants to make a spectacular entrance with flair and drama—forget about being ordinary.
A Nod to the ‘90s
The ’90s were all about big hair, high heels, and lots of makeup. It’s hard to imagine a time when the decade’s fashion was anything other than iconic—remember slip dresses and ultra minis?
The reimagined 90s wedding look features slinky silhouettes, square necklines, and fresh designs—all of which exude minimalism and futuristic while still projecting an air of ease. It’s the perfect combination of romance and edgy for a bride looking to mix the two.
If you are feeling the throwback ‘90s style, there are a few ‘90s-inspired designs you can try. The early 90s puffed sleeve gowns will be making a scene in 2022, square and halter style necklines are making a comeback, and mini and slip dresses will be on-trend for brides who want to make a splash!
A Night at the Ballet
Traditional wedding elements of rose and blush gowns, grosgrain ribbons, and fluffy tulle are still favorites of brides everywhere. However, this season will see an increase in ballet motifs—from skirts resembling tutus to leotard-style bodices. The ballerina style doesn’t stop there, of course.
Bridal accessories like bows and ribbons, a variety of transparent fabrics, and various pinky hues are en vogue for a bride looking for a minimalistic and refined style.
This trend does not have to be ultra-feminine. You may add some contemporary elements to the traditional look for a more edgy appearance. Incorporating different elements to add drama, such as using various fabrics or a backless feature, or even adding some unexpected style with shoes, a jacket, or a cape.
Corsets on the Outside
Corsets have been a part of bridal fashion for quite some time, but layers of fabrics typically conceal them. We’re seeing more bridal designers choosing to showcase a beautifully designed corset by displaying them outside of the gowns for 2022.
For a body-con dress with a seductive edge, transparent tulle, lace, and embroidery are being used to complement the corsetry. Brides adore this fresh take on elegant flirtiness, and the look can be sexy or more modest, depending on the type of corsetry.
This style is ideal for a bride who wants to exude sensuality and confidence on their wedding day. It’s also a fantastic method to flaunt your figure, and it will undoubtedly pique people’s attention. If you want to try this trend, be sure to invest in a corset that is well-made and comfortable enough to wear all day.
If your wedding is outdoors or during cooler seasons, a chic way to keep warm is to wear wedding outerwear. Maintaining wedding elegance and style is made simple, from structured trench coats, leather moto jackets, capes, faux fur, or even bridal cardigans.
The best part? Not only will wedding outwear keep you warm, but you can also wear it with a variety of different gowns.
Choosing a Wedding Dress in 2022
As brides continue to look outside of the box when it comes to their wedding inspiration, they’re moving away from the traditional ball gown silhouette. Different styles of wedding dresses are becoming more and more popular due to brides seeking out more flattering and personality-driven styles that include things like colors, sleek lines, and diverse gown lengths.
