Bridal fashion lovers, get your Pinterest boards out!
Even though I’m not planning a wedding anytime soon, as a fashion designer, I am obsessed with bridal fashion. If you’re like me, Bridal Fashion Week is probably your favorite time of year. Well, it just wrapped up, and the runway was full of fresh, enchanting trends.
Whether you are currently shopping for a wedding dress or just saving ideas for the future, here are the top three wedding dress trends for fall 2023 that you won’t want to miss:
1. Long, Dramatic sleeves
Whisked right out of a storybook, the return of long, dramatic sleeves has taken the bridal runway by storm.
This trend is all about lavish lace, ethereal chiffon, and dramatic volume. Whether you’re leaning towards regally puffed or gracefully adorned sleeves, this trend promises to add a dose of romantic nostalgia to your big day.
Plus, long sleeves offer the perfect balance of elegance and intrigue, ensuring your every move on your big day is enchanting.
2. Minimalist ball gowns
Wave goodbye to the over-the-top ball gowns of yesteryears.
This fall, it’s all about the refined, pared-back beauty of minimalist ball gowns. With clean lines and understated silhouettes, these dresses embody the essence of modern sophistication.
Normally, you wouldn’t think that “modern” and “bohemian” styles would go together, right? Well, not this season! Designers are marrying those boho vibes with minimalist designs. These dresses are dreamy, romantic, and contemporary all at the same time.
3. Backless, off the shoulder dresses
While backless, off-the-shoulder dresses have been a favorite for seasons, they’re still holding their court in the bridal fashion realm.
This trend, a subtle nod to timeless glamour, complements both the dramatic sleeves and minimalist ball gown silhouettes beautifully. Incorporating a backless, off-the-shoulder design is the perfect way to infuse a hint of allure into your bridal look, making you feel as captivating as you look.
