Corset Bodice

If you found yourself watching Bridgerton, it’s safe to assume that you also fell in love with the costumes on the show. The show brought back the joy of traditional features with a modern twist.

You’re going to see more dresses with this feature as it creates a flattering figure in whoever wears it. Variations of the trend include the corset embedded within the dress’s material. For the more daring bride, you can opt for a more visible lining of the corset that creates a more sultry look.


Statement Sleeves

Another trend we’re seeing take over wedding dresses is the statement sleeves. Whether it means a puffed sleeve or a fitted sleeve with a different texture from the rest of the dress. There are plenty of ways that this trend can make an appearance on your wedding day. There are many advantages to it. The biggest advantage is that it keeps you warm if you plan on having your wedding during the colder months.


Transitional Pieces

This is such a fun trend! Transitional pieces allow for so much more excitement on your wedding day. Example one touches on the previous trend: a statement sleeve, but you can detach them! So let’s say you love the grand look of the puffy sleeve, but can’t imagine wearing it all night! That’s exactly what these transitional pieces are for! To make a statement when you walk down the aisle. They also let you be comfortable enough to dance during your ceremony!
