Bridal Lookbook 2022: Dreamy Wedding Dress Styles to Fall in Love With

With all the planning that goes into preparing for the big day, it can be easy to forget about one of the most important parts of your wedding look: the wedding dress itself! But finding the perfect wedding dress shouldn’t be overlooked or put off until the last minute; with so many dress options out there, it’s essential to start planning this part of your bridal look early so you have time to properly test and find the right style and fit that works best for you, your body type, and your taste.

The Floral Wedding Dress Designs

The design of the dresses is where bridal fashion gets interesting. Over the next five years, floral designs will be more prominent and intricate. This can be seen in many of the gowns for Bridal Look 2022. Floral appliques are a popular choice for many designers this year because they’re flattering to all silhouettes and look great when layered on top of other designs.

The Strapless Ball Gowns

Strapless ball gowns are at the top of every bride’s list for their big day. They’re simply elegant and timeless. This look is a classic that will never go out of style. From clean, sleek lines to off-the-shoulder cutouts and plunging necklines, this option is perfect for any bridal look in 2022. The strapless ball gowns take the cake when it comes to flowing fabric, with plenty of layers that create an ethereal silhouette.

Light and White Lace Wedding Dress

Gone are the days of uber-long, fitted wedding dresses and heavy makeup. Today’s bride can wear her hair up, ditch the tiaras, and don a stunning gown that focuses on balance and beauty. If we take a look at our Bridal Look in 2022 Trends, the emphasis will be on finding simplicity while still showing personality.

The modern bride might wear an airy dress with subtle ruffles or lace overlays without needing to make her look bigger than she is by adding long layers. She’ll show off her beautiful curves and go for natural makeup tones with just a hint of shimmering sparkles on her cheekbones.

The Prom Inspiration

I had a vision of what I wanted my dress to look like, but I was struggling with finding the perfect style and designer, says Erin. I knew I wanted something simple but also unique.

The Princess Style Gowns

The princess-style wedding dress, featuring a column of fabric that weaves itself up and over the head of the bride, is a look that has been popular for decades. The style was so popular during the late 1800s and early 1900s, it even became known as the Gibson Girl gown. In modern times, this look has seen a resurgence thanks to celebrity weddings like those of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry or Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.
