It’s the most wonderful time of the year…BRIDAL MARKET. Okay, it comes twice a year, but still! This is where the journey to find your perfect gown starts. We fly to Chicago, which was lovely as always, and we meet with each of the designers that we carry for an exclusive first look at their latest collection. All the while, we have you in mind as we pick the gowns for you to try on at your appointment. And babes, did we find some gems or what?!? And we can’t wait to share them with you. The gowns we bought at market will be arriving sometime during the July-August 2023 timeframe, so be sure to follow us on Instagram to stay up to date on our latest arrivals. Now, get ready to Pin your faves to your dress board, and let’s get into the trends…
This trend has some serious staying power, and it’s easy to see why. It seems like every dress could level up with an off-the-shoulder detail. We’re seeing some of our favorite silhouettes return with an off-the-shoulder update as well as some playful and (at times) adventurous take on the trend.
We saw these babies everywhere this season and it seems like every designer has their own interpretation of the trend. The best part about detachable sleeves is that they can completely transform a look. So, essentially you get 2 dresses for the price of 1…what’s not to love?
Oversized Lace Motifs
Lace never goes out of style when it comes to bridal, but the kinds of lace that are popular actually change a ton. Right now, we’re noticing a lot of fun oversized lace prints that lean more toward floral motifs.
Skin is In
Whether it’s thigh-high slits or sheer bodices, skin is definitely in and we’re not mad at it. We’re especially into gowns that feature sheer bodices with lace details because it really makes the lace motif pop.
We can’t wait to see which trends are calling you. Schedule your bridal appointment today to be one of the first to try on these beauties once they arrive!
