Before Queen Victoria’s 1840 wedding to Prince Albert, the typical bride simply wore her nicest dress—which could be any color—to her wedding. But Her Majesty the Queen popularized the white wedding gown, which eventually became standard at every wedding thereafter.
That doesn’t mean you have to dress like a queen for your nuptials, or even wear white. One thing the younger generations are known for is breaking with tradition.
If you want to be on-trend at your 2022 wedding, here’s what fashion experts suggest you consider.
Dopamine is the hormone that makes us feel relaxed and happy when it’s released in the body, and after the last couple of years, couldn’t we all use a bit more of it? Pinterest reports that many of this year’s brides will be channeling it as they stroll down the aisle.
Dopamine colors are bright, cheerful, and upbeat, while the dresses are head-turning, vibrant, and fun. The styles are whatever you want them to be; that is, whatever makes you feel good.
If your intended promised you the sun, the moon, and the stars on your engagement, here’s a chance to echo the sentiment.
Gowns embellished with celestial motifs will be big this year, whether woven into the fabric, encrusted on top, or overlaid on a tulle veil, sleeves, or train. As long as you’re looking to the heavens, you’ll have the right vibe.
The Fairy Tale
We’re so done with muted, micro, make-do weddings. This year we want the drama we’ve always dreamed of.
So go for the whole Cinderella thing: balloon “puff” sleeves, timeless bell-shaped gowns overlaid with tulle, or sexy silhouettes with thigh-high slits. It’s your day, and this year you can have it your way.
Whatever style of wedding gown you select, it will fit perfectly into the elegant, charming ambiance of South Florida event space, the Historic Alfred I. duPont Building.
