Hit fashion competition reality show Project Runway coined the phrase “One day you’re in and the next day your out,” and that is never truer than in bridal fashion. As we wave goodbye to 2023 and step into a new year, we are ushering in a whole new year of design trends that are sure to make your wedding dreams come true. Here are some of the top wedding dress trends for 2024 brides in our Hayward, California and Whittier, California bridal shops.
One trend we are seeing and absolutely loving is clean, classic, fit-and-flair gowns. Simplicity is coming to the forefront with these gorgeous dresses, complete with clean lines, all white and ivory fabric, and special construction elements. Gone are the days of head-to-toe lace and beautiful rouching, intricate folds, and figure-hugging shapes are here to stay.
A trend that is making a major comeback is sleeved gowns. Don’t get them confused with the puffy sleeves of the 80’s. The 2024 bride will be clad in sleeves with lace or very intricate designs. While sleeves can be amazing for a traditional church wedding, they can also be stunning showstoppers for an elegant rooftop or outdoor wedding. If the weather or air conditioning permits, we think this could be the unique element you’ve been dreaming of.
2024 is set to be an amazing year in bridal and this next trend is sure to turn heads. Floral appliques bring springtime, rebirth, and femininity to brides year-round. Lace has been “in” for years and now the trend has moved away from Chantilly and scroll lace and straight into flowers that seem to burst off the dress. Whether it’s 3D appliques or climbing matte floral embroidery, this trend will catch the eye without detracting from your natural beauty.
We are so excited to enter a new year of wedding gowns and beautiful brides on the hunt for the perfect one. Whether you are looking for clean and simple, daring sleeves, or a burst of florals, we have no doubt that you will be radiant on your big day so long as one thing is true: you feel confident, authentic, and beautiful inside and out. While the wonderful world of bridal is ever-changing, we know that you will find your perfect dress to wear as you say, “I Do”.
