Wedding Dress Trend #1: Regal Ballgowns
Ballgowns are back and better than ever AND are one of our favorite 2023 bridal trends! While mermaids and fit-and-flare styles have been all the rage for the past few years, this timeless silhouette has been making a major comeback. From simple styles to the most ornate ballgowns with lace and beading, there is a ballgown to fit every bridal style. Check out some of our favorites below.
Modern Ballgown Wedding Dress
This strapless ballgown is a stunning choice for the chic and modern romantic! Delicately wrapped layers of organza add texture to the simple strapless bodice with a modern scoop neckline.

Ornate Ballgown Wedding Dress
This gown is for the bride who wants a showstopping, ornate wedding dress! Essense of Australia Style D3245 features an extra full ballgown skirt with details such as double-box pleating to add volume. Layers of sparkling glitter tulle add swoon-worthy shimmer, while an off-the-shoulder neckline is trendy and romantic. Ornate beadwork on the bodice adds additional detail and texture, while an extra-long train completes your royal look!
Ethereal Ballgown Wedding Dress
Regal ballgowns can be ethereal as well! Style 1413 from Martina Liana is the epitome of modern romance. This ballgown features trendy details like boning, fashion-forward puff sleeves and an off-the-shoulder neckline.
The sheer bodice is adorned with delicate beadwork, soft shimmer and rich embroidery for added texture and dimension. Floral lace motifs give the dress ultra-feminine appeal, while the extended train adds an eye-catching element to the back of this breathtakingly beautiful gown.
Wedding Dress Trend #2: Floral Motifs & 3D Florals
Florals aren’t just for your bouquet! Floral motifs are among the top bridal trends for 2023. From bold floral laces and appliqués to 3-dimensional flower details, there are a variety of ways to incorporate this romantic trend into your bridal gown.
Couture Floral Wedding Dress
Martina Liana Style 1510 is for the bride who loves a couture and fashion-forward look! Covered in 3D floral embellishments and strands of elegant beading, this luxurious and sexy design begins with sparkling beaded spaghetti straps that meet a demure scooped neckline.
An on-trend semi-sheer bodice with exposed boning draws in the waist with its modern architectural seams and meets the illusion tulle scooped low back with additional sparkling detail. The fitted column silhouette skims the body’s curves before softly flaring into an ethereal sweeping train of equal opulent detail.
A-Line Floral Wedding Dress
Floral elements are a stunning choice for the boho bride! Stella York Style 7521 pairs windswept romantic style with a dreamy boho design in this gorgeous A-line wedding gown. The bodice features a classic sweetheart neckline and sexy semi-sheer corset construction adorned with matte floral lace.
The fashion-forward blouson sleeves have a cuff at the wrist and are embellished with floral lace and detach at the bodice for two looks in one. Swirling bold lace appliqués dance between the layers of frothy tulle in the soft A-line skirt for an ethereal finish.
3D Floral Wedding Dress
This stunning wedding dress is ready for a walk through an enchanted garden and is for the bride who appreciates detail and luxurious texture. The bodice of this Martina Liana Luxe Style LE1148 combines a sweetheart neckline and subtly sexy boning for a striking bustier-inspired look.
Hand-placed 3D floral details on the bodice and skirt add dimension and texture to this striking gown. Sheer details in the bodice and a bold, open back add a hint of sexiness to this classic ballgown silhouette. The stacked floral embellishments flutter with every movement, just like butterflies in the garden.
Wedding Dress Trend #3: Simple Sheath & Column Silhouettes
One of the top styles and perhaps the most popular of the wedding dress trends for 2023 is simple sheath wedding dresses. Simple silk sheaths are especially popular for the modern minimalist bride who loves a less is more look, and this style can also come in crepe or even lace.
Simple Sheath Wedding Dress
Stunning and luxurious, Essense of Australia Style D3589 exudes Old Hollywood glamour with a modern look. Sexy spaghetti straps grace the shoulders before joining the ultra-flattering, on-trend cowl neckline. The sumptuous liquid crepe fabric clings to the body’s contours and elegantly drapes into a sophisticated column silhouette.
The low scoop back meets a row of fabric-covered buttons before falling into a sweeping train, while a sexy side slit adds to the showstopping look of this dress for a gown worthy of the red carpet.
Sheath Wedding Dress with Keyhole Back
Simple. Modern. Chic. Essense of Australia Style D3160 is the ultimate understated but high-impact gown. The column silhouette effortlessly hugs the body’s natural curves. It has a high halter neckline for a fashion-forward effect, with the high-quality soft crepe fabric providing a cohesive, sleek look.
The keyhole back adds an unexpected twist to this silhouette, adding a touch of sexiness, while a simple band of fabric accentuates the waistline. Minimalism doesn’t have to be boring, and this stunning gown proves this to be true.
Sheath Wedding Dress with Long Sleeves
Even the boho bride can partake in this minimalist trend! Sleek and oh-so-chic, the siena gown by All Who Wander exudes a minimalist and modern flair. A fresh update on the bishop sleeve, the gown’s long sleeves puffed at the shoulder before gathering at the vintage-inspired buttoned cuffs.
The open V-neckline complements the squared open back before skimming the relaxed column silhouette in a sumptuous liquid crepe fabric. For the fashion-forward bride with an adventurous heart, this gown holds all the magic for your special day.
