The Spring 2023 bridal collections were rich with exuberant color, elaborate embellishments, and everything in between. The most buzzed-about trend to know is “Regencycore,” an evolution of the Bridgerton bride by way of The Gilded Age with ravishingly romantic results. The season also saw 3-D petal embroideries sprouting up at Marchesa Viktor&Rolf, and more. While newcomer Rosie Assoulin delivered yellow daisy-covered dresses in a bridal debut that felt like a breath of fresh air.
1. Celebration of Color
Between the blushing brides at Monique Lhuillier shades of “something blue” at Ines di Santo and Amsale, and botanical prints at Hermione de Paula, it was a celebration of color.
2. Regency Romance
Binge-worthy shows, like Bridgerton and The Gilded Age, are behind the biggest new bridal trend. “Regencycore” calls for empire waists, statement sleeves, corset details, and gloves.
3. The Bride Wore Bows
From Naeem Khan, where ribbon shoulder ties skimmed the floor, to Prabal Gurung, who cinched a signature corset top with micro bows, this look made a statement at every size.
4. Here Comes The Capes
Dramatic capes, embroidered caplets, and tiered robes are reasons to leave the veil behind. Channel Old World elegance or go covered-up and contemporary in layers that you’ll love.
5. Spring in Full Flower
3-D petal details are sprouting up everywhere, from Marchesa to Elie Saab. The motif took on new life at Rosie Assoulin, whose bridal debut saw a skirt covered in yellow-and-white daisies.
6. Short and Sweet
Though hemlines have been on the rise, this season there was a mini for every bride. Even with flats, Viktor&Rolf’s embellished off-the-shoulder A-line dress stood out among the rest.
7. Suitably Attired Style
Suit up in Amsale or Naeem Khan, who both sent tailored looks with tulle trains down the aisle. Then cut loose in Rosie Assoulin’s outsize cargos—the cool bride’s answer to after-party style.
