Bridal Trends 2023

Colorful Wedding Dresses

After a few seasons of all-white collections, wedding dresses in every hue appeared in several collections. Pastel shades like soft blue and blush are an inherently dreamy choice, while bold floral prints and metallics are perfect for more daring brides. Pro tip: To pull off a more vibrant wedding look, keep the rest of your accessories simple and let your statement gown do the talking.

Feather Embellishments

If you’re on the hunt for a wedding dress that’s both fashion-forward and luxurious, consider one with feather details. Eye-catching plumes can elevate any wedding gown silhouette, plus they give a fun and festive nod to the celebratory feel of your day. Go art deco with a curve-skimming gown with a feather hemline, or shake it up at your reception or after-party with a feather minidress. Feeling extra daring? Consider a bridal suit with feather embellishments—it’s the perfect combination of structure and whimsical texture.


Bridgerton and Gilded Age fans, this is the trend for you. Bridal gloves, whether fingerless, opera style or wrist-length, are all about old world romance. Nearly every Bridal Fashion Week collection included gloves, leading us to believe this ultra-polished trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Similar to other wedding accessories, such as veilsheadbands and hair bows, bridal gloves add a layer of elegance to your wedding day look. Plus, gloves are available in a variety of fabrics, styles and colors for every wedding aesthetic—even if the Regency Era isn’t your vibe of choice.


No veil? No problem. If veils aren’t your thing, consider a wedding gown with a cape instead. This less-expected wedding day accessory offers the same photogenic movement as a veil, brings the red carpet glamour and you can whisk it away after your ceremony without messing up your hair. Some of our fave styles featured embroidered lace, constellation-inspired beading, cascading sequins and dramatic ruffles.


If there’s ever a moment to wear a romantic ‘fit, your wedding day is it. And it simply doesn’t get more romantic than ruffle details. Softer and slightly more traditional than feather embellishments, ruffles add just the right amount of whimsy to any silhouette. Opulent ruffled ball gowns were the high point of several collections, while dramatic mermaid gowns with ruffled skirts also made a comeback.
