We still can't believe that another New York Bridal Fashion Week has already passed. This year saw the beginning of an in-person show of designer collections, after two years of online appointments and virtual runways. A new crop of breathtaking designs from established designers and up-and-coming brands making their mark in the bridal wear industry was a welcome sight as we settled back into our usual routine.
As a tribute to timeless traditions, designers like Elie Saab, Amsale, and Monique Lhuillier presented breathtaking ball gowns. We also observed an upsurge in cutting-edge designs from labels like Rosie Assoulin, Scorcesa, Safiyaa, and Nadia Manjarrez Studio, including dainty dresses, colorful ball gowns, and refined separates. One thing we can all agree on, despite the dizzying array of styles on exhibit this season, is that the wedding industry has enthusiastically embraced innovation. Now, more than ever, brides may choose something that suits their own style.
Below are some prominent themes from the upcoming Spring 2023 collections. If you're recently engaged and in search of the perfect wedding dress, take notes!
While designers have been playing with colorful floral print designs on white backgrounds for a number of reasons, the shift to colored backdrops, particularly pastel hues like blue and pink, appears novel. Both Ines di Santo and Amsale dabbled with color in their ornamentation, creating anything from a tumbling blue tulle train to delicate pink blossoms. The most eye-catching trend for wedding dresses in 2023.
One of the most prominent styles this year was layering, whether it was with clouds of tulle to create an ethereal look or, as seen on the sleeves of this season's hottest designer, Odylyne The Ceremony, with sheer fabric to reveal the skin below. Others, like Reem Acra and Dana Harel, add a sensuous twist to traditionally conservative lace with enticing, all-over peek-a-boo patterns that manage to be lovely while being provocative.
We always keep an eye out for new neckline trends, and the Spring 2023 collections included a few different takes on this design element, including asymmetrical necklines. A number of designers, including Anne Barge, THEIA, and Romona Kevea, showcased pieces in their collections that had this modern and chic silhouette.
In recent years, brides have been seen wearing a variety of outfits instead of traditional wedding dresses. For Spring 2023, designers like Galvan London, Scorcesa, and Safiyaa (among many more!) created bridesmaid dresses and separates that may be worn again and again after the wedding.
Although minidresses have traditionally been given as an after-party option by major bridal design businesses, with the rise of micro weddings and more ladies willing to take a fashion risk, these stunning garments are now appropriate for the wedding itself. These minis are available in almost every style, and we love them paired with a long avant-garde cloak or featherweight coat for an even more high-low look.
Surely we publicized the return of the Disney princesses. These ball gowns with long skirts are a radical departure from the current minidress fad. The figure-flattering skirt, which may include everything from cascading floral decorations to ruffled tiers, was often worn with a strapless bodice.
While bows were all the rage in past seasons, this year's iteration of feminine touches is more subdued and fitted, evoking a somewhat Gwyneth Paltrow–Esque vibe from the 1990s. While sculptural train ties are still in fashion, basic waist sashes with either gauzy materials or a hint of glitter have been updated for the present.
Even though bridal dress with floral patterns is not novel, the Spring 2023 fashions offered a fresh take on the classic by way of boulder embroidery. Elie Saab, Reem Acra, and Lela Rose are just a few of the designers that updated this timelessly chic aesthetic.
