Top Wedding Dress Trends from Fall 2022 New York Bridal Fashion Week

Another successful Bridal Fashion week is in the books! This season, designers returned to the runways — both in person and virtually — to showcase their Fall 2022 collections. Many designers featured details we know and love, like 3D texture and bridal bows, while we saw a resurgence of glam gowns, and ogled some new eye-catching styles. We combed through all of the bridal newness to bring you the hottest trends for 2022! 

Bridal Separates

From toppers like jackets and capes to smart bridal suiting, we’ve loved this season’s chic alternative to traditional bridal style. Wedding separates can offer a second look and may actually be worn again.

Lush Textures

Designers turned up the texture this season, using a combination of fabrics to create eye-catching three-dimensional details. From tulle ruffles to lace appliqués, these textured wedding dresses took our breath away. If you’re a bride who loves embellishment but isn’t into bling, these gowns are for you.
