Bridal 2023 looks have been released, with some shows held in person. Designers created exciting looks that work for all occasions surrounding the wedding, including the rehearsal and the reception. After two years of bridal events on pause, weddings are back in full swing. The looks from the 2023 runways feature designing vets and new emerging ones, so let’s see what the next year of bridalwear has to offer!
With this bridal trend, size doesn’t matter, but the bow itself does. We saw bows in all sizes, from statement bows that are bow-dacious to petite bows that perfectly complement the back of the bridal gown. The placement of the bow appears anywhere from front to back, varying between perfectly draped to more whimsical and misshapen. Whatever the case, bows are making their mark on the bridal scene in 2023. Re-create this look with the help of the Ainsley Dress free sewing pattern.
As times change, traditional color isn’t the only way to go anymore. Searches for “color wedding dresses” have gone up significantly in the past year, and with that comes more options. Pink has seen favor in recent years, but it seems that, in the coming year, blue will be the new pink. The soft blue hues are breathtaking and certainly worth wearing on such a special day.
With the return of large-scale weddings, it only seems fitting that the gowns follow suit. and trust me, they certainly seem to be doing just that. The rising trend of maximalism celebrates the over-the top glamor we’ve been craving. Other details that make these looks more grand are tailoring, pleats, and excellent draping.
As period pieces experience a resurgence, bridal wear is looking to the past for inspiration. Details from the Regency era, as well as the Gilded era will still be on-trend for bridal wear next year. Corseted bodices add structure and beauty alongside A-line styles and accent sleeves from sleek lace to puffed types.
Asymmetry x Cutouts
Cutouts are appearing on runways in a surprisingly elegant and chic way, translating from everyday fashion, gym wear, and now into wedding wear. Cutouts resemble small cuts or slashes, but surprisingly the cutouts did not compromise the beauty of the gowns. Moving from tasteful hints of peek-a-boo skin to a little more entertainment for the eye, asymmetrical details were seen paired with cutouts and also used separately. Necklines, sleeves, and hemlines featured asymmetrical details.
The looks from Bridal Week created excitement for viewers and those involved with bridal occasions on the horizon.
