2022 Bridal Trends

Every year, all of our favorite designers release their new collections into the world, and we get plenty of fresh takes on bridal fashion to obsess over. Guiding our brides through their journey to finding the perfect wedding dress is such a fun job, and we can’t wait to help you make all the latest trends yours! If you’re on the hunt for the wedding dress of your dreams, you need to see these bridal trends we’re loving in 2022 at Brides by Glitz Nashville:


Classic and Simple



We often find brides seeking something classic for their wedding, which isn’t much of a surprise: this simple, clean style has withstood the test of time, and for good reason! We get it; you want to be able to look back on your wedding in 30 years and find yourself just as in love with your dress as you were the day you bought it. If this sounds like something you’ve been hoping for, then you’ll love this trending lean towards chic, minimalist gowns that feature classic silhouettes, soft lines, and solid textures, like the Maggie Sottero gown shown above. These strikingly simple wedding dresses embrace traditional bridal aesthetics, offering the perfect option for the bride with her heart set on something timeless.

Unique Sleeves



Sleeves are making a total splash in bridal! Sleeves can add interesting volume and texture to your look, and this year’s latest collections surround a special focus on bold, unique sleeves with stunning design details. Edgy and boho brides, you’ll love how this trend allows you to build completely one-of-a-kind styles that you won’t find on anyone else. Ranging from flowing bishop sleeves and tiny petal straps, to flared, bell sleeves as shown on the Wilderly Bride gown above, the number of possibilities for personalization is endless!





This year, many boho brides are falling in love with how a vintage-inspired bridal gown can look just as home in 2022 as it would have in the 60s and 70s. This style tends to rely on modest necklines, flowing skirts, and floating lace details, like the Rebecca Ingram dress shown above, to allude to another era. You can lean into the traditional theme of a vintage-inspired gown by accessorizing with pearls and a neat hairstyle or blend touches of contemporary tastes into your look with a statement heel or necklace.


Bold Necklines



If you’re looking for a wedding dress that will make you stand out, unique necklines are the ultimate statement-making design! Bold, out-of-the-box necklines are a popular choice for brides with trendsetting tastes. Statement shapes, ranging from one-shoulder necklines to square necklines and every unique cut in between, result in striking bridal looks that rarely require any additional accessories. As shown in the Rebecca Ingram bridal gown above, an interesting neckline beautifully frames your upper body and creates an alluring visual.





Dreaming of all-over texture? You’re in luck. Lace wedding dresses forever hold a place in our hearts, and 2022 has delivered a stunning array of options for brides of any style. From classic embroidery to unique, nontraditional patterns accentuated with three-dimensional details, like the piece by Sottero and Midgley shown above, lace bridal gowns create dreamy, romantic looks that we don’t expect to lose popularity any time soon.
