Dresses With Pockets

On the wedding day, a bride’s best friend is a bridal gown with pockets. We love the Morilee by Madeline Gardner Chastity gown. As far as modern wedding dresses go, this gown is style to the max. It has a demure bateau neckline, a full skirt, and a dramatic, low-square back.

Modern Floral Wedding Dresses

Modern wedding dresses with a romantic and whimsical feel always feature floral patterns. And if you love this style, Monique Lhuillier designs the best styles. We are swooning over the Amalia gown from the Monique Lhuillier 2022 collection. A demure and feminine off-the-shoulder neckline, billowy sleeves, and a body-hugging silhouette make the Amalia gown a work of art.

Square Neck Lines

Popular in the Regency and Renaissance Regency eras, square necklines are making a major comeback. Because of the sharp edges, the square neckline is perfect for modern wedding dresses. We think it adds a glam, stylish, chic, minimalistic style to any bride’s bridal look.

Modern Wedding Dresses With High Slits

For the ultra-glam bride that loves to be sexy, a wedding dress with a high slit is in order. We love how romantic this gown looks with the detachable tulle overlay skirt. Modern wedding dresses sure are divine.

Ruffles And Feathers

The return of larger weddings is the ideal opportunity to go big with your wedding day look, and it doesn’t get much more extravagant than this frilly, unashamedly excessive embellishment of ruffles and feathers. A voluminous skirt of cascading ruffles is excellent for the bride wishing to make a significant fashion statement, while a ruffled skirt gives breezy dimension to a sleek silhouette. And feathers! Well, what could be more fun and whimsical than feathers on your wedding gown?

Bridgerton Corsets

Corsets, a gorgeous detail that totally highlights the brides’ figures, epitomize the Regency era. Corsets are making their way down the aisle, paying respect to the traditional wedding gown silhouette while also accentuating the bride’s body. Exposed corsets will be found in many modern wedding dresses in 2022.
