BRIDAL TREND 2023
We hit the ground running to get the scoop on the new styles coming to a bridal salon in the next year. The result? An abundance of über-chic inspo in the 2023 wedding dress trends—from dramatic ball gowns to lush floral prints to fun party dresses. If you’re planning a wedding taking place next year or are simply dreaming of your future wedding attire, these are the 2023 wedding dress to know.
1. Colorful Florals
Gowns with bold blooms will be everywhere in 2023. While floral motifs and wedding dresses are a classic pairing, colorful prints and splashy embroidery give this established trend a gorgeous refresh.
2. Shades of Blue
There’s a new “it” hue on the bridal fashion scene. Blue dresses ranging from pale periwinkle to more vibrant cornflower were a standout trend.
3. High Slits
High slits brought the sex appeal sulle passerelle. If you’re looking to show some leg and elongate your frame, this is the 2023 wedding dress trend for you. Go full femme fatale with a curve-skimming silhouette that dares to bare or go timeless with a twist and opt for a formal ball gown with an unexpected thigh high slit.
4. Mock Necks
The high neckline feels inherently regal, and is a timeless way to give basically any wedding dress silhouette a more modest, timeless feel. Take a cue from the likes of Grace Kelly with a ball gown with a mock neck, or add balance to a sultrier silhouette with a more conservative neckline.
5. Straight Necklines
While sleeves were all the rage for several years, the strapless silhouette is back—with some nineties-inspired flavor, of course. This sharply angled bodice highlights the decollete, neck and shoulders and is a true throwback.
6. Open Backs
This 2023 wedding dress is bringing sexy back—quite literally. The bridal take on the slinky “going out” top, this detail is all about showing as much skin as possible from the back.
