Dreaming of wedding look that will turn heads as you walk down the aisle? We have the perfect modern bridal looks just for you!

We understand that as times are changing, so are bridal looks. Maybe you don’t want to look like the typical bride on your wedding day. We have done the research on what looks are trending going into 2023, so you don’t have to.

From silk metallic dresses to wedding suits and separates, we have it all covered so you can ensure you will stand out from all styles to date.

Satin Metallic Wedding Dresses

Indie by Shikoba Bride, Stocked at Alice May Bridal

For those on the hunt for a silk wedding dress, chances are you’ll want a gown that feels classic and timeless. Often thought of as the epitome of luxury and elegance, silk makes the perfect fabric choice for a wedding gown due to its smooth, shiny, and sumptuous look. We have seen a massive increase in silk wedding dresses, especially with a metallic shine to them.

Bridal Suits

The Bridal Tuxedo by Pronovias. Stocked at McElhinneys

There exists the perfect gown for each bride, and so naturally there is also the perfect tuxedo! Brides are also wearing the trousers today, and they’re doing it with elegance and panache: the classic tuxedo has been reinvented with extraordinarily flattering cuts for the female figure, and with details that make it ideal for original, modern brides.

Embroided Details

Willa Dress by Savin, London. Stocked at Alice May Bridal

The lovely thing about having an embroidered wedding dress is that they look unique and extra special. They often also look even more beautiful in real life than in wedding photos.

Plus you can incorporate personalisation with bespoke embroidery. Why not get your initials also embroided onto the dress? Or choose a gown that reflects your love for one another?

Two Pieces/ Separates

West by All Who Wonder. Stocked at La Bella Sposa

Ever-so-lovely and oh-so-glamorous, the west gown is a stunning two-piece modern boho look for the fashion-forward bride. The large-print leafy lace embroidered silk chiffon starts at the sheer balloon sleeves before folding into the wrist in a chic Victorian-style buttoned crepe cuff. The flattering square neckline is also complemented by the sleek ivory stretch crepe cropped just above the waist and opens into a dramatic open detail in the back. The elongated A-line skirt softly drapes from a detachable belt and unfolds into a soft sweeping train of silky luxe lace embroidered silk chiffon for the final finishing touch.
