We love a hand-embroidered floral moment!
Get ready for a floral extravaganza! Florals are set to take centre stage, whether it's in the form of wearing actual flowers or incorporating floral fabrics into bridal wear designs.
Classic bridal silhouettes will be elevated with meticulously hand-embroidered floral motifs that create a stunning "3D" effect. If you're not a fan of beads or lace but still want something extra, this is the perfect alternative.
Soft and modern, 3D floral motifs or embroidery can be added to a traditional design for a fresh and unique look. Keep an eye out for gowns, veils, and gloves adorned with these exquisite floral details, as they add a touch of romance and whimsy to any bridal look.

Colourful hues in Lilac & Pastel Blue.
As couples seek to infuse their personality and individuality into their big day, vibrant hues and playful pastels are gaining popularity on the bridal runway. Brides are embracing the power of colour to make a statement and express their unique style and we were excited to see lots of pastel blues and lilac!
So get ready to see a bolder, more daring approach to bridal fashion as brides step away from the traditional all-white looks and embrace the world of colour for their wedding day wardrobe.
Bows and ruffles are bigger than ever!
Bows have always been a classic element of weddings, and in 2022 and 2023, they have made a triumphant comeback with a touch of opulence and versatility. The current bow trends for 2023 are a perfect blend of traditional essence with modern twists, such as detachable bow trains and chic hair accessories.
But get ready, because in 2024, bows are taking over and in abundance! Get ready to see bows like never before, adorning bodices, or multiple bows forming a stunning button line down the back of a gown. Bows are making a bold statement in bridal fashion.
Speaking of drama, enter ruffles! Playful, and utterly romantic, ruffled wedding dresses are making a come-back and with the introduction of 80's bridal style elements here for 2023, we are ready for the ruffle!
When it comes to a ruffled wedding dress, it's all about finding the perfect level of drama that suits your taste. Bold brides will be drawn to statement-making ball gowns with voluminous and frothy ruffles, making a grand entrance that leaves everyone in awe. For those with a minimalist aesthetic, simple silhouettes with subtle frill accents offer a touch of whimsy without overwhelming the overall look. And for the modern bride who craves a fresh and fashion-forward style, sleek silhouettes with clean and architectural ruffles are the way to go.
