2. Feathery wedding dresses.

Another bridal trend, which might be the next big thing just from how more brides embrace this style. Feathery wedding dress trends come in different styles, but what remains uniform are the feathery embellishments. They have a luxurious, feathery, yet unique and appealing design that will make you look different from other brides.

Among so many styles, you can choose the ostrich feathered, peacock feathered dresses, strapless sequin feathered, asymmetric feather, or Halter neck feather trimmed mini dresses. You just need to know what works for you and embrace this gown trend.

3. High-low hemlines.

Hemlines are the lines formed by the lower edge of your wedding dress and come in different styles. For instance, floor-length hemlines, mid-calf hemlines, above-knee hemlines, mid-thigh hemlines, and ankle hemlines, to mention but a few.

High-low hemlines are unique because the front part of the dress is shorter than the back. These fun and flirty dresses were formerly known as fishtails or mullets. They can be incorporated in any silhouette of your choice, such as a Ball gown, V-neck, etc. Take a look at one of these in our bridal store in Kenya and Uganda.

4. Ruffled wedding dresses.

These dresses are embellished with a gathered overlay of fabric strips, giving them a ripple-like effect. The whole ripple design gives the wedding dress a lively and unique appearance, creating a sense of movement, fluidity, and playfulness.

Additionally, they can be tailored to suit your unique style, so no matter your body type, ruffles can be added to whatever silhouette or fabric you choose, and you'll look breathtaking no matter what. The best materials to match ruffle designs include Tulle, Organza, Chiffon, Lace, Satin, and Silk.

5. Organza layered wedding dress trends.

The Organza design is a fine, lightweight sheer fabric. It creates a soft outer layer, like a complete skirt outline on a gown. These dresses are a combination of both classy and modern styles.

The waist is accentuated with beaded embroidery, adding a hint of glamour. The ruffled layers add dimensions and ease of movement. Additionally, they look great on almost any body type, enabling you to pull off the look effortlessly.

6. Scoop strapless neckline wedding dresses.

Scoop strapless neckline dresses are U-shaped and have circular necklines. They open up around the neck to display the collarbone beautifully and whatever accessories you may choose to match your wedding dress.

Considering they are strapless, it would help if you had another alternative for shoulder straps, preferably a tight-fitting bodice to hold the dress in place. So, why scoop, strapless, spaghetti neckline dress trends? Well, for one reason, they look perfect on all body types. Also, they can be cut out into any of the existing dress silhouettes.
