Oversized Bows: Classic Romance Reinvented

Bows, bows, BOWS! Bows have been slowly building momentum with the surge of clean and classic wedding dresses. This year, large bows are making a striking appearance, giving a contemporary spin to traditional romance.

Various types of bows are decorating dresses, adding an unexpected touch that our brides and stylists adore! Oversized bows were super popular for previous generation’s wedding gowns, and we are excited they are back in style.

Whether they are tied bows with long tails or a super huge bow tie, bows are sure to add the perfect detail to walking down the aisle. We have numerous dresses with huge bows!

They are usually detachable and can be mixed and matched with any dress style you see fit for your big day! 

Once the dancing begins, you can detach the bow and dance the night away! Bows work with any dress, and we can’t wait to see them everywhere in 2024. 

Maximalism: Bold and Beautiful

2024 is the year of MAXIMIZING the bridal gown! Maximalism has emerged as a key trend in bridal fashion, characterized by its luxurious textures, intricate layers, and rich details. 

This trend caters to brides who desire to make an unforgettable impression on their wedding day. Think gowns adorned with lavish embroidery, voluminous layers of tulle, and an abundance of sparkling embellishments and lace appliques.

You can also maximize the beauty of your wedding look through customizations.

Our stylists are skilled in helping you choose the perfect customizations so that you can add more glam and unforgettable details. This allows you to put your personal touch on your dress, making it just that much more special for your big day!

Making your dress even more glamorous works for any silhouette as well! Ball gowns with gorgeous poof adorned with 3-D applique, like 'Valona', greatly compares to Princess Diana’s maximized look! Our fit and flare dresses with enormously long trains, like our Casablanca gown 'June' with a 120-inch train, will drop jaws when you walk down the aisle!

Maximalist dresses are coming, and we can’t wait to see how extreme and gorgeous details become!

Mini Dresses: The Chic Revolution

Along with the trend of micro weddings, mini wedding dresses are challenging the norms. Their shorter hemlines offer a chic, contemporary option for modern brides. These dresses are perfect for less formal venues like city hall, beach weddings, or intimate backyard celebrations. They offer a sense of freedom and ease, allowing brides to move effortlessly and enjoy their special day to the fullest.

Whether for the main ceremony or as a playful second dress for the reception, mini wedding dresses are a fun addition to the bridal wardrobe. Bridal minis can be paired with longer overskirts to give the ceremony a traditional look, and then once the reception begins, the skirt comes off for a fun and flirty mini dress!

For a contemporary look, some brides opt for a fun, sparkly mini dress that is completely opposite their ceremony wedding gown. Minis are fun for everyone!

Jumpsuits: Elegance Meets Comfort

Sometimes dresses aren’t for every bride. Introducing: Wedding Jumpsuits!

In a similar fashion to mini wedding dresses, jumpsuits provide the comfort of wearing pants for the unconventional but stylish bride. Jumpsuits provide the practicality and glamor for a sleek and powerful look.

Bridal jumpsuits are similarly great options for elopements, courthouse ceremonies, or a bride who wants to make a unique fashion statement! We expect Jumpsuits to take over in 2024!

3D Florals: A Fresh Romantic Look

This trend features gowns adorned with intricately crafted flowers, leaves, and vines, adding depth and texture to traditional silhouettes. From subtle accents to full-blown floral extravaganzas, these 3D embellishments create a dreamy, fairy-tale aesthetic. We are loving the 3-D florals embraced by one of our favorite designers, Essense of Australia!

D3734 gives the dreamy bridal look for a garden party as the floral pattern gently falls behind in the skirt. Another, D3838, brings the glitz and glam as the florals sparkle and shine and hug the brides’ gorgeous curves! Brides looking for a romantic, ethereal look will find themselves captivated by the exquisite craftsmanship of these floral designs.

Colorful Dresses: A Spectrum of Elegance

White gowns are no longer the only thing you can wear when you tie the knot! Colorful wedding dresses are popping up like beautiful wildflowers, and White Wisteria has options for every bride’s favorite color!

From soft pastels to bold, unconventional hues like black and ruby red, colorful wedding dresses are setting new trends. These gowns break away from tradition and allow brides to showcase their individuality and flair for fashion.

Our newest colorful gown by Adrianna Papell, 31271, is a dreamy way to add your “something blue” to your big day with the dainty sky-blue pattern on the flowing organza. If you really want to make a statement with bold, bright colors, we love beautiful “Elisabetta” by Rebecca Schoneveld and “Ariana” by Wilderly.

If a bride really wants to flip the script and wear a truly stunning, non-traditional gown, we have numerous black wedding dresses that are stunning no matter the silhouette you like!

Want to wear a white dress but have a non-traditional veil? Color veils with intricate embroidery can make your walk down the aisle much more unique than plain tulle! Pops of color look to be the most popular in wedding dress trends for 2024 - and our consultants are here for it!

Boudoir Inspired: Unique and Alluring

Corset bridal gowns are steamy, hot, and all about flaunting your sexy side. These compelling gowns will leave your spouse hopelessly captivated on your wedding day.

Not only does a corset look gorgeous, but it also provides incredible structure and security.

This means you won't have to worry about the gown falling at all while you dance the night away!

Our newest corset gown, a part of our Vine Collection, “Margot” gives a sexy peek-a-boo look to the corset that shows off your curves so romantically!

A corset wedding style is definitely something you should think about if you want to look and feel like a captivating siren on your big day!

Halter Necklines: Timeless and Flattering

Halter necklines have been revamped by the runway. Halter necklines remain a beloved choice among brides for their timeless elegance and flattering design.

They offer a sleek and sophisticated look that suits various body types. Perfect for both traditional and contemporary wedding themes, halter necklines exude grace and style.

Most popular by Sophia Richie Grange, a halter neckline creates a beautiful opportunity for low open backs.

We love our newest addition, “Willa,” which is so sleek and modern. Halter neck wedding dresses are expected to pop up everywhere this year for the sophisticated bride!

Gloves: The Return of Vintage Glamour

Gloves! Oh, how have they come back better than ever! Bridal gloves are making a stylish comeback in bridal fashion, adding a touch of vintage elegance and sophistication.

Whether in lace, satin, or sheer fabric, gloves complement any bridal gown. We love recommending bridal gloves to go with your wedding dress to elevate the overall look with a sense of refinement and grace.

Perfect for brides who adore vintage-inspired aesthetics, gloves are a beautiful nod to the glamor of the past. We have stunning satin gloves that make any bride feel like a princess for their big day.

Modern wedding gloves are popping up in plain tulle, embellished in pearls and sparkles, or even customized embroidery to add a touch of personality to your detail shots!

Non-Lace Textured Elements: Quiet Luxury

We are seeing very unique textures in the wedding gowns for 2024. The inclusion of subtle and unique textures in wedding dresses creates an elevated look without being as prominent as lace applique can be. It gives a rich and luxurious aesthetic to a bride’s look.

Beautiful fabrics and intricate details adorn dresses like our gorgeous “Giselle” and “Riley” by Rebecca Schoneveld.

Texture allows you to elevate the bridal look in many unique ways. One of our favorite looks is embedding subtle florals into the fabric, giving it a classic and luxurious feel. This trend is ideal for brides who appreciate the beauty of understated elegance and wish to make a subtle yet impactful statement.

Slits: The Sexy Statement

In 2024, we are showing some leg!

High slits are redefining bridal fashion with a perfect blend of modesty and sensuality. Slits are making waves in various gown styles, adding a sexy and chic touch to the bridal gown.

While they are gorgeous, slits offer an element of comfortability and the opportunity to showcase a little skin in a stylish manner.

This contemporary twist works great on all styles and silhouettes.

A classy slit in our Vine Collection favorite, “Sadie” allows brides to show off their fun shoes while offering breathability in a more playful way.

Statement Sleeves: Dramatic Resurgence

Sleeves no matter the time of year are a bold way to add a statement to your wedding look! Statement sleeves, especially those reminiscent of 80’s-style statement shoulders, are making a bold return in 2024.

These voluminous and structured sleeves create an illusion of a smaller waist and flatter all body types, adding a dramatic and fashionable edge to bridal gowns.

Off-the-shoulder puff sleeves have made a huge impact on upgrading wedding gowns such as D3636 and 7573!  Intricate lace designs add a delicate floral detail that cascade down the arm so lovely like D3284. Statement sleeves - no matter the fashion - are a perfect way for brides to add a touch of drama and personality to their wedding day look!

Pearls: Timeless Sophistication

Whether used as delicate accents or as the main feature, pearl embellishments add a touch of classic charm to any wedding gown.

We love the subtle pearl detailing in dress D3823, which showcases a subtle shine that draws in eyes. Pearl fanatics will love our newest Adrianna Papell “31278” that has pearls all over including pearl gloves and off the shoulder sleeves!

Pearls are perfect for brides who appreciate the beauty of traditional bridal elements and wish to incorporate a sense of timeless sophistication into their wedding day attire. Pearls continue to reign supreme in the world of bridal fashion, symbolizing timeless elegance and sophistication. Pearls are here to stay as we do not see them going anywhere for a long time!
