We’ve gathered a few of this season’s most stunning wedding dress trends, along with a few timeless classics to spark inspiration.
Intricate beading, all-over sequins, and stunning crystal embellishments are all highly coveted trends this season, adding a magical element to even the simplest of silhouettes. The shimmer in the warm afternoon sun as you walk down the aisle and catch the light from every angle as you dance late into the night. If opting for an all-over embellished number, let the dress be the focal point and accessorize with a pair of simple drop earrings and nude strappy stilettos.

Featuring one shoulder, one sleeve or even an uneven hem, asymmetric silhouettes add contrast and style to a simple dress. A one-shoulder or one-sleeve style creates a feminine yet modest look, baring the perfect amount of skin and elongating your upper half. Complete the look with your hair in a loose updo to show off the beautiful neckline and add a pair of dainty drop earrings.
The Leslie Gown features a beautiful sweetheart neckline and sheer one-shoulder overlay, adding complexity and a level of modest elegance.
Perfect for a spring outdoor wedding, floral appliqués add an ethereal undertone to any dress, delicately fluttering in the wind as you say, ‘I do’. Delve into luxe textures will all over appliqués or add drama to key areas with 3D flowers and petals around the bodice and shoulders. This style is a dreamy selection for late afternoon ceremonies under a canopy of greenery. Complete the look with a loose updo and delicate gold jewelry.
Opt for larger, 3D appliqués across the bodice and shoulders, as seen on the Eliah Gown (left) or smaller floral pieces to create an all-over texture, as on the bodice of the Marisel Gown.
