Timeless classics never go out of style, and they continue to be a popular choice for brides year after year. Here are some of the timeless bridal dress styles that are making a comeback in 2023.
Ball gowns are a classic bridal dress style that exudes elegance and sophistication. Its silhouette features a fitted bodice and a full skirt, creating a regal and dramatic look. For 2023, ball gowns are back in a big way, with designers adding their own modern spin to this timeless style. Think voluminous tulle skirts, delicate lace bodices, and off-the-shoulder sleeves.
Our Peony gown is the ultimate ball gown for the bride who wants to look and feel like a princess on her wedding day. It’s made out of layered tulle and features a floral diamond glitter motif that trickles delicately down the length of the garment. It also features 3D organza flowers (a big trend this year) that add depth and dimension to the piece.
A-line gowns are another timeless bridal dress style that flatters almost every body type. The A-line silhouette features a fitted bodice that gradually flares out from the waist, creating an elegant and feminine look.
Our Leighton gown is a strapless A-line number that’s made out of swaths of gossamer tulle. It features a sheer, fitted bodice and a dramatic leg opening that adds just the right amount of sexiness to this otherwise romantic garment. It also features a radiant degrade floral applique design that softens the boning at the torso of the dress and flows halfway down the skirt, creating a seamless transition that really brings the gown together.
Mermaid gowns are a popular choice for brides who want to show off their curves. This silhouette is fitted through the bodice and hips and flares out from the knees, creating a mermaid-like tail.
Our Vika gown is beautifully crafted out of ivy-embroidered lace and features glass beads that run the length of the dress, framing the mermaid skirt. To add further romance to the design, it features a removable tulle ribbon (another detail that’s very in this 2023) which can be attached to one of the gown’s straps.
Dramatic draping meets loose and flowy silhouettes in goddess gowns, which have always been a popular choice for brides-to-be who want to look and feel as though they’re descended from the heavens.
Our Alexia gown, made out of soft satin, is a light and effortless wedding dress for the bride-to-be who wants to channel her inner Aphrodite. The bodice and skirt of this garment are delicately gathered at the waist in the empire style, accentuating the curves beautifully. It also features a plunging v-neckline in both the front and the back, as well as a single thigh-high leg slit for a dress that simply oozes sexiness.
Unique Details for Modern Looks
To stand out on their special day, brides are opting for bridal dresses with unique and eye-catching details. Here are some of the top unique bridal dress details for 2023 that give classic styles a touch of modern flair.
Three-dimensional floral appliques are a romantic and feminine detail that adds dimension and texture to a bridal dress. For 2023, designers are creating floral appliques in a range of fabrics, from delicate lace to shimmering tulle. Floral appliques can be used as a subtle accent or as an all-over detail, creating a dreamy and ethereal look.
The Sollip gown from our 2023 collection is the epitome of romance and grace, captured in a dreamy floral bridal gown. It’s one of our best-selling wholesale bridal dresses this year, featuring 3D floral appliques around the bodice and top of the skirt that immediately draw the eye. The plunging neckline enhances the bride’s neck, collarbones, and decolletage, while the full, floor-grazing skirt makes this a dress that feels like it’s been pulled right out of a fairytale.
Wedding dresses that feature sleeves have been around since the 1800s, and are a popular choice among conservative brides. For 2023, billowy sleeves are contrasted against sleek silhouettes that hug the curves for a timeless and romantic look.
Our Cersei gown is a versatile choice for the bride who wants to showcase different looks on her big day. The dress itself features a sheer tulle corseted bodice adorned with flowers; it comes with detachable off-the-shoulder blouson sleeves made out of tulle that are decorated in the same motif. The bride can wear the sleeves during the ceremony, and then go without them for the reception afterwards.
Feather accents are a bold and daring detail that adds texture and movement to a bridal dress. Feather accents can be used as a subtle trim or as an all-over detail, creating a dramatic and eye-catching look. For 2023, designers are incorporating feathers into bridal dresses in unique ways, such as feathered sleeves, feathered skirts, and feathered trains.
The Carrie gown fittingly bears the name of the glamorous and fashion-forward protagonist of HBO’s Sex & The City. It’s the choice for the thoroughly modern bride in both cut and style, with frothy feather details on its off-the-shoulder straps and a body-hugging silhouette. This dress also features a sheer bodice that shows off just the right amount of skin.
