After years of plunging necklines and low backs, we are seeing brides drift back towards strapless necklines. Most are looking for something a bit architectural and more contemporary than the sweetheart neckline of the 2000s. Straight across, plunging notches, scoops, and asymmetrical moments are all fun and fresh takes on strapless bridal gowns. P.S. Well-made and altered strapless gowns will NOT fall down all night. They have enough structure to hold everything up and allow for maximum dance moves! 


Simple styles are all the rage right now and ruching is a creative way to add some interest and play into the trend without blending into the design. You get simplicity and detail without beading and/or lace. Sounds like a win-win! More like a win-win-win, since it’s now part of trending wedding dress styles.


We’re talking detachable trains, sleeves, skirts, liners, and sashes. Brides are loving having the option for two different looks with one base gown. This allows for creativity and flexibility between ceremony and reception and will keep your guests on their toes all night long.


Our next stop on trending wedding dress styles lets your guests see a little more of the best part of your dress… You! Sexy sheer elements like hip cutouts, illusion bodices, and even unlined skirts are a huge trend. Brides are interested in spicing up their bridal look with edgy elements and we are here for it. One thing is for sure, with sheer elements, this won’t be your mama’s wedding gown.


Capes and wings and hats, oh my! Veils are still very popular among classic brides, but we’re seeing an uptick in capes and wings that still give the long, flowy effect of a veil but offer a modern and updated twist to everyone’s favorite wedding accessory.


Lace is always a popular choice for brides and while recent trends have leaned simpler, oversized florals are making their debut. Whether it’s a large-scale lace applique, juicy 3D florals, stunning organza appliques, or florals woven into or printed directly onto the fabric this trend is sure to catch everyone’s attention. Definitely a statement piece to finish out our list of trending wedding dress styles.
