The New York Bridal Fashion Week took place in April this year and featured spring and summer collections for 2024. Brides have their own preferences when it comes to their gowns, so getting ideas from bridal fashion runways can help decide on a style!
Shopping for a wedding dress is a long, extensive process because there’s a lot of factors to consider. Getting ideas on current trends help bride-to-bes with this decision as it gives insights on what style they would like to adopt. It also wouldn’t hurt to stay on top of the trending wedding gowns for the next year!
The New York Times reported that celebrated designer Monique Lhuillier said brides want something unique for their dresses as gowns can be seen all over social media. “Matching boleros, detachable sleeves and overskirts are quite popular, allowing brides to transform their look from ceremony to reception,” Lhuillier added.
We looked into prospective, trending wedding gowns in 2024 and here they are:
The sensuality of sheer and exposed corset gown styles
The sheer and exposed corset bodices return in the list of bridal trends! The New York Times reported that these styles are updated to be “less boudoir and more bridal chic.” Brides who prefer these corseted bodices will definitely look daring and sensual, without a doubt impressing the crowd as they walk down the aisle.
‘Figure-flattering’ column and sheath silhouette gowns
Column and sheath styled-dresses flatter brides’ bodies with its ability to contour their figures from top to bottom. Brides prefer figure-flattering gowns for lightness and ease when walking down the aisle and interacting with guests, too.
Detachable elements create dramatic flair on a wedding dress
Boleros and lace tops add character to a dress, especially since they can be added accents on a sleeveless or strapless dress. Adding them to your bridal look can be fun as brides can highlight them in fun and functional ways. These styles add dramatic flair on a classic dress.
Detachable sleeves come in various styles such as lacy sleeves, puff sleeves, and a ribboned cape. This style can be an option to pair with a classic gown if brides feel like adding a charm on their outfit.
Floral patterns and appliques add romance to a dress
Floral designs add an overall romantic feel to a bride’s wedding dress. Brides who love flowers embrace the idea of adding embroidered floral appliques or fabric flowers on their dress. This style creates a timeless look for a bride-to-be, and not just that: floral patterns add a wow factor due to its intricate details.
The youthful effect of novelty straps on wedding gowns
Gowns with eccentric straps dictate how a neckline is framed, and can actually be a jewelry alternative. This adds a youthful and fresh take on a classic gown especially when paired with serpentina gowns or other flattering silhouette styles. Strappy gowns allow the wearer to relax their upper bodies and shoulders for added comfort.
