As we returned to business as usual we are also presented with remarkable looks, from both renowned designers and new ones who are making a name for themselves within the bridalwear space. Every season I look forward to bridal trends and although the wait for much longer, it really was worth it.
Brands like Ellie Saab, Amsale and Monique Lhuillier showcased amazing ballgowns continuing with traditional trends that will forever be here to stay within wedding fashion. There are also contemporary designs like mini dresses, modern separates and colourful gowns. But even with a diverse range of styles presented this market season, one common theme we can surely agree on is that the bridal industry has openly embraced change. There are more looks now than ever before, catering to many bridal tastes.
Ahead are the top nine bridal trends of 2023 from the Spring collections. Brides to be searching for the perfect wedding look, here is what to be inspired by.
Blue is the new pink. For years we’ve seen various iterations of pink wedding gowns, but this season signalled a change and the colour blue was centre stage. We, here in Couture Bridal Studio have wonderful fabric options in blue colours.
Bold designs were taken to new heights, with designers opting for gowns that feature utterly sheer fabrics. Dana Harel, Galia Lahav, and Mira Zwillinger stepped it up a notch by incorporating crystal embellishments throughout their barely-there bridal designs. I have been working with lightweight materials for years and never get tired of their whimsical look. Here is a perfect example of such a dress for one of our bespoke brides.

Necklines are always a trend we look out for each season, and the Spring 2023 collections brought a few interpretations of this design element—one being asymmetrical necklines. Collections from quite a few new designers all incorporated looks that featured this new, trendy silhouette. I have been seeing bespoke brides embracing this inspiration more and more.
A second neckline trend that graced the runway this season was mock necks. Royally inspired, this silhouette has been seen on celebrities like Paris Hilton, Ellie Goulding, and Lady Kitty Spencer, and has increasingly grown in popularity over the past few years. It’s a wonderful look which can also offer some versatility and a touch of class.
As we’ve seen in the past few years, brides are ditching traditional ballgowns for more modern designs, with separates becoming a bridalwear staple. For Spring 2023, designed two-piece looks that could easily be worn long after a bride says “I do” making the bridal outfit more of an investment.
The mini dress has made its way through several Bridal Fashion Week seasons, and we can only hope that designers continue to embrace this trend. There were a few high street brands that presented dresses with short hemlines, for the bride who’s not afraid to show a little skin on the big day and seeking a more casual look.
Even with the surge of mini dresses, there’s still a demand for glamorous ballgowns, especially with the return of large-scale weddings. Hermione de Paula, Elie Saab, and Monique Lhuillier produced some of the most breathtaking ballgowns for brides looking to feel like the belle of their ball. Lots of our brides looking for custom-made versions of these spectacular dresses.
Mini Bow Details
Designers are always looking for ways to incorporate unique details within their collections, and this season, mini bows were that special element. Designs by bridal legends included this whimsical and playful design feature.
Oversized Floral Motifs
Floral designs aren’t new within bridalwear, but the Spring 2023 collections reworked this classic motif by designing more oversized embroideries. Elie Saab, Reem Acra, and Lela Rose were designers who were able to turn this traditional aesthetic into something more modern. I have worked with a few large-scale floral motifs for fashion-forward-looking brides wanting to make a statement.
