Grace Kelly’s wedding dress has always been iconic and in 2022, the high neckline silhouette is making a big comeback. Celebrities like Lily Collins, Paris Hilton, Lady Kitty Spencer and Jasmine Tookes brought the high neckline style back to the public spotlight with their own wedding dresses. It’s no surprise the silhouette is back as it is very timeless and a refined nod to the past.

Dress: Vera Wang for Pronovias, Monique Lhuillier

On the bridal runway, we saw many versions of how designers incorporated color into their designs. Designers like Vera Wang added a touch of statement black color to her designs, which is a great way for brides to draw attention to one specific element of their dress. Not feeling black? Opt for colorful floral designs that have flora and fauna appliqués as seen on Monique Lhuillier’s wedding dress 2022 designs. Designers like Andrew Kwon took it a step further and designed dresses in pastel tones, from pistachio to peach to “something blue” shades. The sea of color we saw on the runway is a reflection of the celebratory mood that brides are in, as we look forward to a festive 2022 wedding season.

Gone are the days where brides want a simple satin wedding dress. In 2022, it’s all about the bow. These larger-than-life bows are meant to make a statement and add an element of glam to the simple satin dress. We love Sadie Robertson’s wedding look where she wore a Kleinfeld mermaid gown with an oversized bow at the back. It’s such a simple and romantic addition and yet, it truly makes a difference.

Another returning trend that we love is tulle and in 2022, bridal gowns are all about volume. When brides think of tulle, they think soft and romantic. In 2022, brides want to use ruffles to stand out from the crowd as tulle gives a dress incredible volume and texture. Gwen Stefani wore a Vera Wang wedding dress with hand-tumbled tulle, which adds drama to her strapless dress.

The 2-in-1 Look

Jasmine Tookes Wedding Dress

Having a second gown for the wedding reception is something a lot of brides are planning to incorporate in 2022. But instead of purchasing a second gown, brides are opting for a creative (and more economical!) way to have a second look, by taking away parts of their ceremony dress. Take inspiration from Jasmine Tookes, who wore a custom Zuhair Murad wedding gown with long lace sleeves and an oversized satin skirt. She later detached the satin skirt for a full lace gown look.

Dress: Jesus Peiro, Rivini

Wedding designers are offering an array of ways for brides to rock 2022 wedding dress trends. From mix and match crop tops to pair with ball gowns or trousers, like Jesus Peiro and Rivini, to removable skirts to reveal a surprise underneath. The idea is to allow brides to feel their most glam self for the ceremony, and then remove layers for a comfortable and fun dance-the-night-away afterparty.

Wedding Accessory Trend: Vintage Gloves 

TOP WEDDING SHOES AND WEDDING DRESSES 2022

Audrey Hepburn Wedding Dress

The 2022 bridal runway was not just an array of statement-making wedding dresses, we also saw bridal accessories that are vintage-inspired. One big bridal accessory trend we saw and loved was vintage gloves redesigned to fit a modern bride. The wedding gloves trend in 2022 is a modern take of Audrey Hepburn’s iconic bridal glove look, or it can be something that brides are adding as their “something borrowed” from their grandmothers.

Gloves can be the perfect finishing touch to your wedding look as it feels very ladylike. Designers such as Naeem Khan and Marchesa added gloves to their bridal runway that ranged from elegant silk gloves to lace gloves and even beaded ones. The gloves not only feel like a glam accessory that slims and elongates the arms, but it almost feels like an extension of the dress.

Wedding Accessory Trend: Statement Veil

TOP WEDDING SHOES AND WEDDING DRESSES 2022

Paris Hilton Wedding Dress

Another wedding accessory trend that we are loving is the statement veil. Traditionally, veils were used to signify the purity of a bride. Modern brides are revamping the idea of veils so that it’s less about following tradition and more about expressing their personality. We love Paris Hilton’s veil with scattered 3D floral appliques, the same design as her wedding dress.

Bridal designers are taking note and designing statement-making veils that are filled with sparkles, 3D floral appliqués, beaded details and embroideries. Romantic brides will gravitate towards Viktor and Rolf’s floral veil, while modern brides will love Ashi Studio’s structured ribbon veil.
