Since wedding dress trends don’t change quite as often as fast fashion, some trends that made a splash in 2022 (pearls everything!) are predicted to stick around through the 2023 wedding season into 2024. And while poofy, unmanageable gowns, have been on their way out for a while…we’re seeing that modern brides want to be comfortable on their wedding day.
This means less weight, no strapless dresses, and above all, something they can dance in. Featuring Grace + Ivory's. (just released) collection, we’re breaking down the wedding dress trends for 2024.
So if you’re shopping for yourself or with a friend, you can be on the cusp of the latest bridal shopping trends. Bridal Bows From hair accessories and bridal heels to dress details, expect to see some beautiful bridal bows this season while shopping for your wedding dress.
Bows are a detail that go hand in hand with pearl accessorizing and are best seen in classic crepe fabrics and structured silhouettes. The Alina Dress will satisfy your bow craving if, like us, you love this 2024 wedding dress trend. With a full, A-line crepe skirt, and bow detail tied on an open back, this simplistic gown strikes the sweet balance between classic and romantic. We’re picturing a dropped pearl earring and a wispy up-do to complete the wedding day look.
Cowl Backs After Ariana Grande wore a cowl back, Vera Wang wedding dress to marry Dalton Gomez in their May 2021 home wedding…suddenly cowl details were everywhere! Cowl backs (and cowl necks!) are still trending for 2024 brides to be. So you can rest easy if you loved the look on Ariana but it wasn’t yet your time to say “I do!”This modern take on a trend we can thank the ancient Greeks for will have you feeling like a bridal goddess. The Malia Dress features a trending one-shoulder neckline with an extra drapey cowl back detail.
The fine illusion netting helps to achieve a seamless, open back look, while the silhouette stays classic and clean in an all-over crepe. Our favorite detail? The lengthy train for a dramatic walk down the aisle. Off-The-Shoulder If you’ve been on any social media platform this summer, this 2024 wedding dress trend will not surprise you. Off-the-shoulder gowns are having a moment and are predicted to stick around, so don’t unpin your romantic off-the-shoulder gowns just yet.
The Lyss dress from Grace + Ivory’s new collection, pairs the off-the-shoulder lace trend with a figure hugging, fit-n-flare silhouette. The bodice has built-in boning for structured support, and ideal for dancing all night long! We’re picturing the Lyss dress paired with a statement earring and a simple tulle veil, as to let the scalloped lace-edge train do the talking.
This next 2024 bridal trend comes in pairs! We’re loving that bridal separates are working their way into many designer collections. Mainly for the versatility of having two pieces instead of a dress, for an easy transition from ceremony to reception. If you’re on the hunt for the perfect bridal separate, let us introduce you to the Logan Top and Logan Skirt from Goli June. These stunning crepe pieces are handcrafted in Chicago, as part of an exclusive collaboration with Grace + Ivory.
Order these pieces to try at home! We love the statement bow back and long sleeve combination, that combines more than one 2024 wedding dress trend into a cohesive and chic look. Reception Looks If any party calls for a look change, it’s 1000% your wedding day!
Sarah Hyland wore three dresses for her wedding to Bachelor star, Wells Adams this past summer and we could not be more obsessed. Since many 2022 brides opted for two looks, one for ceremony and one for reception, we predict 2023 and 2024 brides will be following suit!
The perfect look change usually comes with more mobility (and danceability) than your ceremony gown.
That’s why the Tristian Jumpsuit and Sheffield Shortie both made our reception look list. Tristan features an optional zip-off chiffon sleeve and crepe, wide-leg pant. While the Sheffield Shortie, designed by Goli June exclusively for Grace + Ivory, features a structured striped organza that is as unique as it is classic. Bell Sleeves Fall 2024 brides are loving a sleeved look for their wedding day, especially if they are anticipating a breezy ceremony.
Most notably of the sleeve trends being the throwback but classic bell sleeve trend. Thank you 70’s! If bell sleeves are your forte, the Blake dress. will be your standout from Grace + Ivory’s new collection. Featuring a soft all-over lace in a figure hugging, fit-n-flare silhouette…there’s no shortage of details on this stunning new dress. We especially love the beading along the back and neckline, for a simple but subtle shimmer. To shop all these looks and order for try at home, check out Grace + Ivory.View All Images
