Still Trending: Ruffles

Ruffles aren’t going anywhere this season. While you’ll be seeing ruffled skirts and sleeve detailing, keep your eyes on the ruffles that don’t play by anyone’s rules. The perfect example of design and dream, O M Couture’s Ophelia, dances with organza in spectacular asymmetric ruffles.

Statement Minis

Perhaps we have the resurgence of micro weddings during covid to thank for statement mini wedding gowns returning in abundance. Regardless, mini wedding gowns will be making a sizeable impact in the bridal fashion space this year. And what’s even cooler than a mini with attitude? A mini wedding dress with a detachable train, a la O M Couture’s Zephyr.

Colorful Wedding Dresses

This isn’t our first colorful wedding dress experience. Dreamy and filtered colors are coming for 2022 brides, stretching beyond the nudes and blushes we’ve become accustomed to. You’ll see moments of pale blues, silvers, and deep champagnes. They’re here to flatter and delight whimsical and nonconventional brides alike.

The Two-Piece Wedding Look

Let us announce the return of the two-piece wedding look. It’s funkier now, with tops that display unexpected necklines and details. The pantsuit still remains a favorite for two-piece wedding looks, but this season we encourage brides to pair pants with unexpected tops. The main reason we believe this look has returned? A two-piece look leaves room for an outfit change, with less commitment than a traditional gown, and the option to wear those pieces at other special moments in life.

Drapey & Wrapped Necklines

A wedding dress with a glamorously draped neckline celebrates bare skin and sophistication. Delicately wrapped organzas, silks, or tulles twist and fall around the bodice of the dress. This can be a silky strappy dress, or a structured and strapless gown, like Selene. What better way to celebrate fabric and femininity?

Still Trending: Pouf Sleeves

Voluminous sleeves have marked wedding dress collections in recent years, from bell sleeves to bishop sleeves. But the balloon sleeve, or pouf sleeve, is sticking around for another year. Whether short or full-length, the pouf sleeve offers drama and unmatched flirtatious energy on even the most classic bridal gowns.

Delicate Embellishments

Minimal wedding gowns are making a return to simplicity. We’re seeing delicate hand-beading, and smaller applique and laces. Details to make our noteworthy embellished list: spaghetti straps with beading, dainty buttons, mindfully designed sequins and sparkles, and ultra-thin bows across open-back dresses.

Bridal Shorts

With statement minis trending, we can’t help but notice rising hemlines on pants, too! While some trends are cyclical – refreshing trends from decades past – bridal shorts are 100% fresh for 2022 brides. Paired with a dramatic bridal top, bitty bridal shorts go from casual summer wear to a striking bridal fashion moment. O M Couture’s are a fashion statement.
