Statement Sleeves

According to Israeli designer Galia Lahav, gauzy, voluminous sleeves are going to be very much in for the 2022 bridal season. Her styles are suited for brides who are looking for a more ethereal and romantic look on their wedding day.Courtesy of Galia Lahav

Top & Pants Combo

For all the cool brides out there, you won’t want to get married in a dress. Instead, a top and pants look (seen in the Nadia Manjarrez Studio Bridal collection) can take you from the ceremony — just style with a veil! — to your reception with ease.Courtesy of Nadia Manjarrez Studio Bridal

Floral Elements

Trade in white wedding gowns completely for a multicolored floral mini dress. If this Peter Langner number doesn’t say ceremony to you, you can easily wear it as a rehearsal dinner look or for the reception — the shorter length is perfect for dancing in.Courtesy of Peter Langner/Marco Guastalla

Back To Black

Who said that brides can’t wear black to a wedding? Go ahead and challenge the traditional fashion tropes with luxe, body-inclusive designs like this dress from Beirut-based designer Dany Tabet.Courtesy of Dany Tabet

Statement Gloves

High-Low Hems

Keep an eye out for asymmetrical hems and A-line silhouettes. If you want to make the look even more impactful, opt for a gown that also features an elegant, flowing train — like this ruffle-adorned frock from Viktor&Rolf.Courtesy of Viktor&Rolf
